Yes, technically it is true. I flew out from NY on Saturday evening, landed in Stockholm on Sunday morning, and left for France on Monday morning. The reason why I flew through Stockholm is because I will spend about a month there after my stay in France and it was about half the price to do a round trip to Stockholm rather than France (not sure how to interpret that in terms of Sweden as a tourist destination…) Though there wasn’t much more time than for repacking, I had time to see my mom whom I haven’t seen since she was in DC last year, and Jonas, with whom I went to an old neighborhood restaurant and had Swedish meatballs and lingobberries for dinner. (And yes, they are a lot better than the IKEA version!) I also was a able to spend a night in my beautiful little apartment. Home sweet home!
