Friday morning saw my mother and the exchange student still in town, thus yet another hotel breakfast for me, and you aint hearing me complaining about it! I wish I could eat hotel breakfast every weekend, but I guess it would loose it’s charm if I did.The plan for the day was to see the famous Turning Torso and if possible go on another Canal tour, it’s been years since I went on the one here in Malmö so I was looking forward to that as well. But first, the walk to the Torso. The area around the Torso is absolutely beautiful, the Torso is more cool than beautiful and that might be the reason for me not taking a picture of it on this particular day. To be honest, I’m not sure that I have taken any pictures of it at all so if you are curios I suggest a google search for “Turning Torso Malmö” (you are more than welcome to do a copy paste).
We took the long route walking back from the waterfront towards the canal boats where we bought our ticket and booked our picnic basket. There was a bit of a wait before it was time for the boat to leave, which we efficiently filled with ice cream. Note, this wasn’t any old scoop ice cream, this was some real good Italian stuff.What about this picnic basket you might wonder. Well, the canal boats in Malmö includes a picnic basket in their service. I love it beacuse you get coffee in a thermos and proper porcelain mugs rather than in a paper takeaway cup. This day I even managed to take some pictures of the scenery, and hey I got one of the Turning Torso as well! Once the tour was over we walked the exchange student through the city so that she could meet one of here sisters host families from when she was an exchange student here in Sweden. While she did that I took advantage of the fact that mother took the car down and had her give me a ride to the grocery store. It’s so nice when you can do a big shop and not have to fit it all on to your bike and then try to bike it all home.
The visit then came to an end. I have to say that the exchange student was real lucky with the weather as both Copenhagen and Malmö showed their nice and sunny selfs, can’t say it’s always like that.12
