I was in Scandinavia for 10 days on vacation and it was fantastic. Kevin and I went to Oslo, Stockholm, Malmö, and Copenhagen. Luckily for me, I got to explore the best way: by running. I had 49 miles of runs planned throughout the trip and I. WAS. STOKED. We started out in Oslo and that ended up being my favorite place. There were all these amazing walking paths all throughout the city. I went out with no plan and it was no problem. I passed by multiple waterfalls, a beautiful garden (pictured below), and ended my run going through the Bygdø Royal Manor (the royal farm). It was a gorgeous run and I couldn't have asked for a better place.
Stockholm posed a bit more of a challenge. I ended up just going across the water to Kungsholmen and looping around a bit. It was nowhere near as pretty as my Oslo run, but I did get a nice picture near the water.
My 7 miler went much better. I ran around the entirety of Kungsholmen, which provided much nicer views! There was a nice path all around the island which was about 5 miles, so that made it pretty easy to get an even 7!
Malmö was a great place to run. I ran out to the beach and then ran back through this beautiful garden. Super easy and not too many cars.
Copenhagen ended up being my favorite run, but that's mostly because, for the first 14 miles of it, I did a tour with Lena of Running Copenhagen. If I had tried to run in Copenhagen by myself, I think that, I would have been super lost. And just totally bewildered when I saw people still trying to get into clubs at 4am... when I had just woken up. Lena took me all around the city and through Christiana, which was really cool to see. I definitely would recommend Lena's tour! It was so much fun!
