Travel Blogs from Granna
Another up-date, this time about the Ice-hockey match I went to with some friends. Ice-hockey is one of the most important and well known sports in Sweden. It's also one of the most roughest sports I've ever seen. In my opinion I can't really have a blog about my adventures in Sweden without mentioning such an important cultural event.
One of the first things that stood out to me the most was that it is very similar to the rugby matches I went to ...
