With the wonderful weather outside today I had the opportunity to enjoy the sun and start to work on my tan while studying. It seems that all the Swedes start to come out of hibernation as soon as it hits twenty degrees and the sun comes out!
Today I visited some friends who were hanging out at Brunnsvikens strandbad (or beach), which is located as a five minute walk away from both the main Stockholm University campus and the business school campus. It is right down the path of the Brunnsvikens kanotklubb (canoe club), which is right across the water from the business campus. To get here you can take Bus 50 from Universitet towards Hornsberg and get off Universitet Södra, the stop right before Albano (which is the business campus). From the bus stop you will see a road down to the water and the canoe club where you can follow the path down to the beach. Or you can even hang out by the water on the business campus side, where a lot of students go in between classes to hang out.
It was absolutely stunning outside today and if the weather prevails this week I urge you guys to go outside and take advantage of it! If you are studying for exams, why not just bring your material with you and combine studying and enjoying the beach? Vitamin D is good for you and necessary after enduring the long Swedish winter, so I think going to the beach should be a mandatory assignment!
If you are already done with exams or are looking for something extra fun to do this weekend, why not go to the canoe club and go kayaking with some friends? It is a super cheap activity to do for either two hours or the whole day! The best part is that you even get a student discount!

Well I hope you all have a great rest of the week and good luck on your final exams for this year! Don’t forget to take a break and enjoy yourself every now and then! 🙂
