歐洲自由行│瑞典自助│72小時,斯德哥爾摩不能不去(怪奇社會觀察上集)│Europe Travel│Backpack in Stockholm│Make sure you mark Stockholm as must-visit

夏天的斯德哥爾摩,請放入此生必訪清單。尤其工業設計、美好生活的愛好者不可忘。這裏經典永恆地存在。如果你喜歡這種感覺的旅行,那這裡會是你遠方的家。

Please make sure you mark this as a must-visit in your map: “Stockholm in Summer”. Especially for those into designs and so-called good life, this is one of the city you can’t afford to miss. It set its beauty in serenity, classic and modern with harmony. If you like this atmosphere floating in the air, then you will feel like home in Stockholm.

我親愛的家人們,真希望你們在身邊。你們準備好一起旅行了嗎?

My dear family, i wish you could be here to share this joy with me. Are you ready to travel together?

清新雋永、簡單又耐看的設計感、舒服、安全、空氣清新、人與自然的和諧、經得起細細品味的城市。(但記得請先存些錢再來。或是在腦中先解除貨幣換算的能力。)

2018的7月,環遊世界第8天,抵達瑞典的首都,斯德哥爾摩,這是我到過的第29個國家,在我心裡的排名一定是前五名。

今天跟大家分享,為什麼我覺得你也會喜歡瑞典的原因,這個城市給我的美好第一印象。

Traveling around the world: 8th day
Location: Stockholm, Sweden

29th country ever visited. 9 July 2018, This city climbs up to the billboard and becomes my top 5 must-visit city.

Classy, simple and long-lasting, considering Stockholm a comfortable and safe city, where the applied aesthetics could be seen everywhere. This is the place where you would feel like home if modern design and simplicity is so your thing. Here are some fun facts about this place I wanna share with you to make you like it as well!

(Reminder: please brace yourself financially, or don’t calculate, de-activate currency exchange function in your head first.)

創新、科技,無現金之外還有黑科技
Innovation & technology, cashless and more? fictional microchip implant now

2018年全球創新排名(GII),瑞典是第三名,同時,根據世界智慧財產權組織的統計,瑞典維持是送件申請國的第一名。未來?這裡就是未來。

從2012上線的Swish支付,(瑞典支付寶的概念),個人旅行的體驗是,你真的可以不用換瑞典克朗,也可以不用帶歐元,即將成為全球第一個無現金國家不是口號,是真的。身為全球現金交易占比最低的國家,從降落在斯德哥爾摩阿蘭達機場開始,我的口袋裡就只有信用卡,在市區搭巴士上車想買票,司機說:「我們車上不賣票。」

呃,好,公車亭裡有貼海報跟你說要下載一個app,輸入信用卡號之後,70分鐘內所有地鐵、公車、路面電車都隨你搭。信用卡只能去大型商場或高級餐廳嗎?不,巷口小店也通喔!

當台灣在討論FinTech到底又多開放、以及法規應該如何跟上時,瑞典已經在討論到底要不要繼續保留現金當作支付的方式之一

Buses here in Sweden don’t sell tickets onboard.

After the launch of Swish in 2012 (by central bank and other 6 different banks, no fund from venture capital involved) and its prevalence, you see people pay with plastic, mobile phones and other alternative ways, in 2016, according to JP Morgan report, only 7% of the total transaction value in that year was in cash national-wise.

So, back to our bus ticket, remember to buy it on the app – SL public transportation app.

人體支付寶 Mobile payment? How about flesh-payment?

最值得跟你分享的是,科幻片成真之,「微型晶片植入之,人體支付寶。」
While amazed by how cashless a nation could be, check this fictional feature – microchip implant in your hand.

在這個又美又創新的國家,我最想跟你們分享的,除了可以完全不用現金之外,就是這個黑科技,2018年五月,約三千個瑞典人,在手的虎口處植入約米粒大的NFC微型晶片。可以感應各種電子閘口/門禁和給火車車掌掃票用。下有兩則影片新聞討論便利與隱憂。

In May 2018, 3000 Swedes inserted microchips into their hands, aiming to replace cards, coins, keys, and yes, your wallet. So you bring your hand, less hassle for searching…huh…everything in your pocket.

Below here are 2 videos to show you the future is now happening and the concerns related to health and data security.

長日照,夏天一定要來!永晝、接近永晝。一天當兩天用。
Summer in Nordic region? Daytime doubled!

媽,你知道這裡晚上十點半太陽才下山嗎?晚上十一點半,晚霞滿天,凌晨三點半,日出來到。

嘿,對,你沒聽錯。

身為一個遊客,最怕天黑襯不出風景。在這裏,時間就好像被你掌握住一樣,很奢侈的享受著,貪婪著用眼睛錄像、用你的步履走訪,盡情搜刮這個城市的美。

這天,我在晚上十點逛完攝影博物館,散步一小時回家也是一種享受。

Hey, mom, could you imagine the sun goes down at 10:30 p.m.? 11:30 p.m. you can take a relaxing walk after a day out. You could also catch the sunrise at 3:30 a.m. after a movie night.

As a tourist, this endless bright sky double your time. Here in summer, you feel the time is in your hand, in your control. It’s such a luxurious way to say: now I am tired after a day of exploring the city.

老外跟自然的距離,不是我們可以想像的/ the harmony between human and natures

走訪歐洲很多地方,跟自然和平相處的城市很多,但是這麼和諧相處的首都,我第一次看到。

第一天,airbnb的女主人就跟我說家附近有三個開放水域,下午可以走路去游泳 (嗯?臺北人表示:你說什麼?);這三天,我觀察她的活動有:上午在陽台曬太陽看書、下午去住家附近的湖邊游泳曬太陽閱讀、接著上帆船出海兩天、晚上去跳阿根挺探戈、睡前泡杯熱茶再好好閱讀一番。

路上的人們騎腳踏車、水上的人們划獨木舟和立槳。公園裡的人們坐在草地上聊天野餐/白日夢/看人群。這裡的動物,他是真的不怕你,靠近你不是為了要食物,而是「我要走那條路,剛好經過你旁邊」

我不禁猜想,是不是人們和環境一直都這們親近的一起互相尊重的生活著。

I’ve been to many cities in Europe, Stockholm is the best in terms of the harmony between human and the environments.

Maybe because Stockholm consists of many archipelagos, people are close to water. Walking on the bridge, I saw people kayaking and SUP in the water. Suggested by my airbnb host, swimming in the open water nearby the house is a local thing to do. (People from Taipei would never think about it!)

And the animals? One day, a flock of ducks walked pass the traffic light, walked pass by me and other pedestrians, slowly peacefully towards water, as if they are the fellow walkers on this street.

Not approaching for food, neither seem alerted when passing by human. It makes me believe that the human and the environment must respect each other for a long time to reach this state.

About Sweden, to be continued/ 瑞典,未完待續
