Grinda MAL: Part 1 (English UK)


Welcome to Grinda MAL! As you probably know this design was inspired by a boat trip to Stockholm Archipelago we took together with my husband last summer (read full story HERE). If you visit Stockholm, going out to the sea is a must-do. Not only because a boat trip offers a nice change from the city life. But because it’s a small adventure itself. And the sea scenery with small islands is amazing.

Stockholm Archipelago is a group of islands situated together in a kind of a cluster. And they are as many as tens of thousands! Every island is different in size and shape. Some of them are larger and thus have become city suburbs linked to the mainland with bridges and ferries. For tourists taking a ferry out to the sea is a part of relaxed sightseeing. And for many local people it’s just another, very convenient, way to get to work, for example.

Ferries leave regularly in small intervals. And tickets are available at the boat station. Each ferry has its own name, which I find very charming. So today we are leaving Stockholm and take the boat to the islands. Take your seat (preferably outside to enjoy fantastic sea views), breath out, order a cup of tasty coffee and get your hook and Whirl ready. Our adventure begins… now!

… By the way, which color Stockholm is, what do you think? It seemed yellow-ish and pale-orange-ish to me. A very nice contrast with dark grey and heavy clouds.
