A Postcard From Stockholm: A Working Trip to Sweden - 24th April 2005

Nosher and Julian from Qualcomm are despatched to Stockholm: Nosher to do his training thing, and Julian to do some sales stuff. The payback for a 6.30am start on a Sunday morning is an afternoon off to wander around the old town (Gamla Stan) of Stockholm, an area visited by Nosher as part of the 3G Lab (now known as Qualcomm Cambridge) Press Tour back in 2001. We also get to stay in the trendy Birger Jarl hotel, which looks like it wouldn't be out of place in one of Julian's style magazines
