This post I few weeks old but when we finally arrived to Malmö our family just about had it with rain and we had begun to think about giving up on our trip but then ta-da the rain stopped and sun began to shine on us. We totally fell I love with the city of Malmö and no not just because it was sunny, but it sure helped. Malmö is a biking city and everywhere we saw people biking and even daycares getting around by bike, in middle of the city by the central station there even is a huge underground parking…for bikes.
Malmö is harbor city and the third largest city in Sweden and is also known as the City of Parks. It is located near the southwestern tip of Sweden, in the Scania province. Malmö is part of the Öresund region and is joined to Copenhagen in Denmark by the mighty, arching Öresund bridge and you actually can see Copenhagen really well on the other side of the water.
Although considered a large city, Malmö feels more like a small and very friendly city. It’s well known for its cultural attractions, including the new Moderna Museet Malmö.
We spend a couple of days in and around Malmö and did some touristy things like taking boat ride to see all major attractions and then we spend two days going to museums and spening lots of time in some of beautiful parks Malmö had to offer.
Also at this point Internet had become a huge issue because the internet you could pay for at the campsite was so slow that it was not working for us who need it for our work. We found that to be the case in just about every campsite we visited. They probably have a very slow connection to begin with and that slow connection is being shared by many people… leaving very little bandwidth for any one person.
We finally gave up and bought a hot spot modem with a local mobile provider (in our case “3”). Their 4G connection was good almost everywhere we went in Sweden and the hot spot model allowed us to connect all our devices (computers, phones, tablets) to the internet. This was far superior to paying $8 for each of us… each day… and being disappointed. In a week we could easily spend almost $100. So it was lot cheaper and way less frustration investing in a hot spot modem.
