A trip up north to the Scandinavian was in my to do list since the last one year. One of my best man, and closest comrade Mahesh Raju had plans to study in this nation and from then on I just read a little bit about this country, Sweden. It fascinated me for sure. It took me to the land of Nobel prizes.Scandinavian nations are cold but really surreal. The cold makes you bleak, but makes you aware too. From the sheer dedication and research that they have shown over the years, you know you have to visit here once, to experience the magic, The Viking History has its own charm too. And most of all, situated right in the northern hemisphere the city of Stockholm was a must visit. What a better opportunity to do it with my loved one and best man together. Stockholm is also very windy and breezy. It is chilly too. The cruises will make you roam into the wild waves of the sea and have that feeling of sailing over the waves. Youngsters can make one city go on a crazy ride. Mahesh aka Mahi and me did just that. Kris was a silent, yet fun soul. He sees and loves to observe. It was his first time in Europe and naturally everything surprised him like the little Alice in Wonderland. We three always had such fun together in Vadodara, but this was next level totally. How we rolled around with laughter, how the booze hit us, how the cold made us run for the nearest warm center, how the beer took our mind off things, the way we sang and danced on the cruise, those autumn leaves of all colours, those childlike moments of mirth and laughter, remembering our yesteryears, and Kris just getting surprised and amazed by each and everything he saw.
