My favourite thing that makes me proud of Stockholm: 

I really like Stockholm because of the closeness to nature and water, even in the middle of the city.

I am a morning person, so I always wake up before the whole family, I drink my cup of coffee and read the newspaper. The calmness of the home is priceless.

Artipelag, a destination of high international quality and boundary-crossing art exhibits, inspiring activities and great food.

The Chinese restaurant Surfers, when it comes to fine dining, I would definitely book a table at Franzén

The restaurant Taverna Brillo was like my second office for a while.
