The Nordics (Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Denmark) have been in my bucket list since the time I can remember. The quality of life, the natural beauty, the helpful people have for long attracted millions of tourists as well as immigrants for years.
One would usually expect a lot of snow while landing in Stockholm in the peak of winter. But as is the case with the rest of the planet these days, (global warming et all), the day we landed it was just 0 degrees. From high up above, we could see patches of snow, but there was nothing to be too alarmed about.
Though it was expectedly grey and gloomy, seeing the miles and miles of unspoilt greenery was the perfect welcome to Scandinavia.
The Arlanda airport in general seemed small (only later did I realize that it has 5 terminals!) and cozy far away from the glitz and glamour we had left behind in Dubai.
Towards the end of Runway 26 on which we landed, there’s a lake and also a parking from where you can get some excellent shots of inbound and outbound traffic.
