I’ve been eating way too much ramen and tempura lately. Even though I walk around for 3-4 hours a day, it was time to do some more strenuous exercise. The weather was nice today, so we decided to go to Mt. Takao for an afternoon hike.

You know that feeling when you visit a new destination, and it’s the complete opposite of what you imagined it to be? That’s what happened to me when I arrived in Stockholm. For my whole life, I associated Sweden with minimalism and modernism thanks to IKEA and Spotify.

It’s definitely not the land of time machines and jetpacks that I imagined it to be.
