Farewell Dinner



Farewell dinner, sunset Luleå

On Saturday it was the Farewell dinner. The food was good but, as the welcome dinner in August in Stuk, small portions. But the most important thing in the night were the feelings, the perfomances, to meet people again... And that was great !!!

German section prepared a performance where they compared the Spanish habits and the German ones. Italian guys showed a presentation with music and photos. French people perfoamnced "Moscow", a song, and the Spanish .... Macarena, Paquito el chocolatero and Alcohol (Typical Spanish). At the end of the event, LURC gave a nice book and a T-shirt to the Phösare of the Nolle Perioden, Winter Edtition. And the night continue in a big big party ....

Scandinavian Trip - Day 8 - Uppsala

Uppsala, University Town

While my friends were visiting again Stockholm, I went to Uppsala to visit Antonio, a good friend that I met in Luleå.

As in my live there are a lot of coincidences, I met Nestor in Uppsala. Neither of us knew planned that and it was a big surprise. Later, we went together to the party in Stockholm (do you remember the girl peeing in the bus? Awful!!)

Antonio took me with the car in the train station and we went to a Sushi Bar (probably the best in Uppsala) in order to have dinner with 2 other friends. It was my first time eating sushi, so maybe I will repeat...

Marihamn, the ghost island

As I wrote before, we took tickets for the Viking Line 5 hours before the departure to Mariehamn.

The idea was clear: Party!

The boat was quite big and it had a lot of places like casino, 2 disco, theater, spa, conference room ...

What happen in a boat, stay in a boat, so I will send some cryptic message: you cross the line, mintu, operation hide the food, under-14, el niñato de la Viking, idiot!, Karaoke fan ...

Skansen

Stockholm... again [part 2]

Today we woke up little late, so we could visit only Skansen, the oldest open-air museum in the world. Skansen is also a zoological park. It is located on the island of Djurgården, a royal park near the centre of Stockholm.

But after that, we took the crazy decision of the day: go by boat to Finland (Mariehamn) with the company Viking Line. I will talk about that experience in the next post.

There are some photos of Skansen:

Stockholm... again

We arrived from Malmö at 06.30, but we needed to wait a little time in order to not disturb the sleeping time of Sirvent, our host in the capital of Sweden. After a little time of sleeping, we do Extreme Turist. How could you visit a city in 3 hours ? We did it!
