Every weekday morning; breakfast or not, it is Tåg mot Akalla for me. Mot Akalla is one of the destination of Stockholm metro, blue line. All Ericsson employees who work at Kista, Stockholm would know. Stockholm subway system is also known as Tunel banan.
Wake up and get out of my bed in the morning is the hardest challenge of the day for me. Somehow, completing this challenge often leads to a compromising choice. An epic battle starts between shaving, getting ready or making breakfast. You who see me in the morning should know the winner of that war :). Below is a picture of my office building.
Talking about Kista and not mentioning Kista Galleria is like eating ice cream without sugar. It is one of the biggest centrum of Stockholm containing all major shopping brands, a large food court, bars, bakery and sports bar, O´Learys. Where one can go for Bowling, Go Cart and off-course watch a championship with a beer and great friends. In other words it’s a death trap, once you are in you will never need to go anywhere else!
Undeniably Kista is the silicon valley of Stockholm thus lunch restaurants are very popular yet one good place I would like to mention is the latest skyscraper Victoria Tower. You can go for lunch as well as dinner. The restaurant can be considered a little expensive and portions are not that big (for me) but hey isn’t that a good restaurant’s definition. If you are visiting Victoria Tower, it worth to go to the sky bar. with a view towards Sollentuna, a recommended place for after work.
Ironic point is, I live near Solna centrum which is also a blue line stop of Stockholm subway system. A good place to live. practically, in the middle of Kista and old town. Will write about Solna in some other post. Below is a small section of Solna Tbana.
