Åsa Lundström, 33, Stockholm
I am a professional Ironman triathlete and a medical student studying to become a Doctor. From a small town in the Swedish countryside, but I have the world as my playground.
“Stockholm’s unique is the access to water and nature in all directions from the city center. Being a triathlete, having perfect swimming conditions right next to stunning running conditions is a privilege.”
“Hammarby sjöstad allows for a fun and inspiring run between the buildings and along scenic water canals, only a block away from the capital city pulse. Only a few more km’s further up the canal, your urban surroundings transform into Scandinavian wilderness where all you can hear are yourself and the birds on your run.”
Lisa’s bakery and Café
“As close to an aunts kitchen as you can get. Familiar atmosphere, the smell of freshly baked cinnamon buns and classic black coffee. The epic way to do a Swedish “fika”, a mandatory cornerstone to experience the Swedish culture, and a perfect way to take a deep breath, relax a bit and feel like home.”
