Kiruna – Abisko

 

The day after the epic Kent concert I left Kiruna for Abisko, and once again this simple task turned out to be more complicated than expected.

Kapstaden till Kiruna – Kent at Arena Arctica

It’s a special privilege to see your favourite band live in concert. I honestly thought I’d never have the opportunity to see Kent (mostly because geography placed us on opposite ends of the globe) but then they announced that 2016 would be their final year together and the autumn/winter tour would be their last ever concerts. Before I knew it I was planning a trip to Kiruna.

Honestly, it was the most special musical experience of my life.

Kiruna

Arlanda & Kiruna

 

The pills and super comfy bed did the trick in bannishing the previous night’s hellish migrane, and I woke bright and early in Stockholm, ready to head north to Swedish Lapland.

Kapstaden till Kiruna – 11 days in Sweden: day 1

Wed 5 October 2016

Arlanda & Uppsala

 

I’d originally planned to go straight from Stockholm to Kiruna, but thought better play it safe and fly the next day rather than risk missing the flight. So I stayed a night near Arlanda airport, (at the coolest hostel: STF Jumbo Stay – a decommissioned 747) and took a bus to nearby Uppsala for a daytrip.
