I just came back from my work trip in Sweden, and I had some time to walk around city of Stockholm. While I was in my hotel room, I took out the travel magazine to see what interesting thing is happening in this fair city. Lo and behold! I saw the ad (pic above) on an exhibition being held at the Nordic Museum [Fact of the Day: There are 75 museums in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. There are stamp museums, music, art, national and even a sunken ship museum – the Vasa Museum]. Since I had a Saturday morning free before my flight back to Singapore, my intent was to go the Nordic Museum to see more. Frankly, I don’t understand the description from the advert in the mag cause it was in Swedish. Oh well, I will just try my luck..

The timing was quite tight, as the museum is approximately 3km away from my hotel and I am too broke to take the bus. I am all out of kronos and hence decided not to take a bus, which could result in worse situations if I lost my way. I knew how to walk there and so I asked the concierge for the opening hours. My heart sank when I knew it opened only at 11am (I was asking her at 9am). I would not have enough time to catch the plane if it opened so late. Relunctantly, I gave up that idea and walked aimlessly through the rest of Stockholm with my team members. Thank God they were a crappy lot just like me, time passed…

… and at 1015am, I am actually pretty close to the Nordic Museum. Since I am already there, oh well, might as well do it! So I told them I will go there and take a look. When I got there, I found out from the museum attendants that the Museum was opened since 10am! Oh man… Since I got some time left, I decided to just go in. The Bröllop (which literally means wedding) Exhibition is smalllll… but it’s ok. I stayed for 15min, snapping away… Below are some of the photos I took. It is supposed to provide wedding inspiration, hope it inspires you:
