Skansen for Grownups

This weeks post will be a bit unusual. We are on our way back from Bangkok, and I have not had time to edit any pictures at all. So, I chose to write about something else: Skansen,  an outdoor museum and Scandinavian zoo in the heart of Stockholm.

A Walk in Lumpini Park

The time this post publishes, the tropical scenery featured in the pictures is a faint memory. I have timed it to go around the same time as we land in freezing Sweden.

Lumpini park is one of the must-visit places in Bangkok. Its kind of an oriental (smaller) version of central park. A perfect place to relax in the middle of a buzzing city. This time we didn’t have any wine with us, but I could imagine myself having a nice sunset picnic with a  chilled bottle of white Burgundy. I tried to find out if it is allowed to drink at public places. Looking at all the tourists going around with a beer in the hand, I would assume so. You can never know though, so perhaps good to bring along a brown paper bag (haha). This post will unfortunately not feature more wine (I promise the next one will), but a few pics from life in the park.
