When I was in Sweden beginning of June I received information that my passport had arrived at the Swedish Embassy in Bern. As it would take a few day before it arrived the Consulate of Sweden in Zurich it was no stress really.
The week after I came back from Sweden I had a lot of work to do and no time either to pickup the passport.
Anyhow the day came and it was a wonderful day with approx. 30°C when I left with the train to Zürich Stadelhofen train station which is close to Lake Zürich and maybe 200 meter away from the Consulate.
As it was really warm outside with no wind or any cooling effect at all It was nice when coming inside the consulate which is laying really beautiful on a green inner yard.
It was quite forward to get the new documents. Only hand over the old one for destruction and then sign that you have received the new once, of course pay some handling fee😉. All in all it took 10 minutes and cost me CHF 17.
When I had received my documents I took a short stroll down to the Lake of Zürich which is 100 meter away from the Consulate.
When I was down there I took some pictures as you can see in the post.
Of course as everyone else I have an ice-cream as well.
