Stockholm & Oslo

Postby blinki » Fri Mar 08, 2013 8:40 pm

I'm going to be in Stockholm from the 26th to the 29th then Oslo until the 31st. So firstly, and most importantly, anyone want to hang out? Bonus points if it invovles food and/or lifting. Secondly, I'm not in either for very long so is there anything I'd be completely crazy to miss? Vegany things or otherwise

(I'll also be couch surfing if anyone happens to have a free couch staying with a vegan would be lovely)

Go see Vasa in Stockholm (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasa_(ship)). It really is amazing. Do other touristy stuff for sure, but don't miss that. I also enjoyed going up to Uppsala. In terms of food, there were some good places. We went to Hermans Tradgardcafe a couple of times for the buffet and great desserts. Most items are vegan, but they will have a couple of dishes that aren't so be sure to ask.

Oslo has less to offer imo. I did really like Spisestedet though. Hard to find but really really good food.

Probably a good point to mention I've trained with Blinki a few times and he appears to not be an axe murderer ;)

Blinki: an avatar of some sort would certainly make you seem more approachable and less axe murdererish ;)
JS - They think it will open the door to folk like LordMuppet campaigning for a threeway?

thanks for the suggestions ORLYLOL. The vasa wouldn't have made my short list really but will look it up properly now

Not sure whether to say thanks or be offended that you think people might think I'm an axe murder :p

You're right anyways about the avatar (and on me not being an axe murderer) though I suspect it'll need to wait until I'm not on my phone

Are you on http://www.couchsurfing.org already? I'd love to hear back from your travels - pics too please! And if you make it over here to Portland, I definitely have a couch free! :)

I am on couch surfing. Will probably start properly looking for someone to stay with next week cause I know it annoys me a little when I get requests too far in advance for me to make plans. There can def be pics when I get back though I suspect Portland will prove too far say for me to end up there

I think we should have a VF meetup when you're here, with training and eating!

Oslo is pretty lackluster as far as veganism goes. I recommend the Munch Museum, though.

If folks are up for it that'd be awesome. I have no particularly plans yet so whenever suits me.

Yeah, from my (still rather lacking) looking into stuff to do I think there's plenty to get excited about for vegan stuff in Stockholm but much less so in Oslo. Will look into the Munch Museum though, thanks

The folks behind the Oslo VegFest can likely point you in some good directions: http://www.oslovegetarfestival.no

I've been looking at happy cow, Kafe 44 looks most exciting in Stockholm to me though I'm yet to get to grips with a map of Stockholm- is it a reasonable meet location?

[quote="loveliberate"]The folks behind the Oslo VegFest can likely point you in some good directions: http://www.oslovegetarfestival.no

Good idea, also can look up the folks with stalls listed


Lord Muppet's axe murderer comment made me really want to take a picture of myself with an axe but I can't find an one :(

Kafé 44 sounds like a plan! Did you want to go to a gym as well?

If there's one reasonably near by and that isn't a problem for folks who have work or whatever then definitely!
