Business alien in Stockholm

Helsinki, 4 degrees

Like I mentioned in my post yesterday, I spent a day in Stockholm. Even though it's always a pleasure to visit Stockholm, this was no leisure trip but I went there for work. The ferry company Viking Line, operating in Finland, Sweden and Estonia, has its Swedish call center located in Stockholm and me and one of my colleagues from the marketing team of our office went to the Swedish office to tell the sellers some news about Helsinki and give some updated information about new sights, events, especially now when the Christmas season is creeping up on us.

Since we didn't have that much time in Stockholm, the flight there already takes an hour, we spent most of our short spare time walking in the vicinity of the Central Railway Station. We found a nice coffee shop that my colleague knew since it has free wifi internet access so we had a nice breakfast at the Espresso House.


It's fun to notice that even though my mother tongue is Swedish and Sweden is our neighboring country, we have a lot in common but there are always small differences that seprarate us. For instance, in Finland, one can not have a café without having some toilet facilities in it. In Sweden on the other hand, one can. Sometime one truly feels like Sting's song about being an alien, a legal alien, in Stockholm.

At the Viking Line office, located in the Nacka area of Stockholm, about 1,5 km from the Central Railway Station, the views from the ninth floor was amazing! Don't mind the poor quality of these photos, they are taken with my phone...


I had never been standing so high in Stockholm, exciting!

After we had our three our long presentation, and discussing with the responsible for the call center, we were off again for the airport. This trip as you notice was extremely short! But I enjoyed it, Sweds are always super friendly and the people we talked to were so interested in Helsinki! We had luck with the weather as well, the sun was shining all the time! What a great time! Here's still a picture of me on our minitrip! Here you see a glimt of my winter jacket, Stadium's Everest jacket!

  11. Thank you all for your wonderful comments!
    Alexandra, thank you for your comment..red sure does differ from the other black jackets on the Helsinkian streets.
    ZuckerKleidchen: now it's time to visit Helsinki!
    Sam: well, all the Nordic countries have the same prices more or less, they're in relation to our earnings..I wouldn't call Stockholm the most expensive, maybe more Oslo. In Helsinki you'll find both reasonable and expensive prices!
    Shannon, Akiko and Jazzy E: thank you for your sweet comments!
