Meet Ida: Our Sweden Correspondent Ida Josefin Eriksson is 25 years old and lives in a cute archipelago town called Nynäshamn in Stockholm. She is an entrepreneur and full-time blogger on adaras.se. Ida has a passion for fashion, travel, food and beauty products. She says:
I have lived in Stockholm for 5 years. From my home window, I can see a hill, grocery store and a hint of the ocean.
A typical Stockholm breakfast is knäckebröd (crisp bread) with butter, cheese and cucumber, served with black coffee.
