We caught a 30minute train from Copenhagen to Malmo, Sweden. Quite the scenery during the ride!


And naturally, one of the first buildings we saw...


We arrived at the Malmo station around 9:30AM and started wandering the streets, heading towards the twister tower of Malmo!


So many bikes!


Just like Copehagen, there were bikes everywhere! The city was oddly silent and empty – I mean it was a Sunday morning, but it was literally like a ghost town!


Our destination!


The Turning Torso of Malmo! The tallest building in Scandinavia, tallest residential building in the EU and the second tallest residential in all of Europe! Read all about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turning_Torso


Twisted it myself!



Some nice Swedish bridges...



The navy



A sweet counterweighted draw bridge!



And of course, Heinz had to climb it



Good thing no one was around



Check out that staircase!



Our destination in sight! With a huge free skate park!



And outdoor bouldering walls??



Rather difficult to climb in the cold, but fun nonetheless!



Up up and away!



Admiring the view



And of course, a flag.



A crazy playground



Base of the tower! Super windy!!!



It was almost like the twisted torso created a tornado around it's base...



And of course, an up close shot.



More crazy Swedish architecture



Another cool building


We caught another train back to Copenhagen, picked up some post cards, and got on a homeward bound train. Another 7 hours and we were back at home in Braunschweig.

Today, the 3rd of October marks our 30th day of traveling in Europe. I consulted google maps, and this means…

We have:

  • Travelled 7200km by train
  • Visited 9 countries (Belgium, Germany, France, Switzerland, Italy, Vatican City, Austria, Danemark, Sweden)
  • 6 capital cities (Paris, Berlin, Copenhagen, Rome, Vienna, Brussels)
  • And seen 3 seas! (Tyrrhenian sea, Adriatic Sea, Baltic Sea)

And we still have another 7 months in Europe! My goal is to hit 15 countries, and probably travel a cumalitive 20,000km (too bad train’s don’t have -train miles- haha!)

This week we’re off to Hamburg with the Language Course, and on the weekend, a trip to Berlin!
