  • This makes me want to leave Stockholm. Very nice picture!

    • Max, don’t leave one of the coolest countries on earth based on this photo (which is v cool I admit). Leave knowing that you live in one of the coolest countries, experience what you can, get some perspective, then go home to re-experience your homeland. Scandinavia rules! Easy for us to say, we’re Canadian with Danish/Norwegian/English roots, and we’ve spent too litle time in your lovely country. We think Scandinavia should set the design rules for the world.

  • very very nice…
