Stockholm weather now:

I know that most people don’t travel to Sweden to bowl, but I’ve never been able to figure out why not. The sound of falling bowling pins has always been a happy sound for me. Stockholm has some cool alleys. Here are a few of my recommendations:

Birka Bowling is a decent, old-fashioned bowling alley that’s been updated with a computerized scoring system. If you want to try something a little more spectacular, both Kungsholmens Bowling and Svea Bowlinghall offer something they call “cosmic bowling”. If your parents were young in the sixties, they’ll probably remember the psychedelic effects of “black lighting” with fluorescent ultra-violet lamps. Wear something white and you’ll discover that not only the pins and the glitter balls will be radiating light, but your clothes will be too! If you’re interested in cosmic bowling, it would be a good idea to call ahead to check the schedule.
