Stockholm, Sweden

Ok, so as you all know I went to Stockholm for a week to visit my Canadian friend Alexandra,  She moved to Sweden a couple months ago and it was the perfect excuse to tick another country off my list.  I do hope to visit again in the summer as it was -16 when I was there and that made sightseeing difficult!

Top 10 things I did on my trip:

  1. Going for a walk through the forest at night across frozen, snow covered lakes and making snow angels.
  2. Wandering around Gamla Stan (Stockholm’s Old Town) one of the largest and best preserved medieval city centers in Europe.
  3. Having the best drink ever at the Absolute ICEBAR where the temperature is -5°C all year and the entire interior is made from ice. (Apple Sourz, Cinnamon Liqueur and Vanilla Vodka in a glass made of ice)
  4. Taking a ‘Winter’ boat tour of the the city’s quays out to and around the island Fjäderholmarna.
  5. Visiting the Vasa Museum where the only remaining, intact 17th century ship in the world is on display.
  6. Going shopping with Alex in downtown Stockholm.
  7. Seeing the old city walls at the Museum of Medieval Stockholm and seeing the displays at the Dance Museum.
  8. Having Drinks at Le Bar Rouge.
  9. Dancing, I don’t know where we were though.
  10. Having traditional Swedish food at Koh Phangan! haha

    Stockholm is – together with NY – my favorite city ever. It’s lovely, especially during summer. It’s so friendly, so sweet, so nice. Kungstradgarden (the main park downtown) is lovely and busy. I once stayed at a campingsite near the water, Bredang, a walk through te woods to a little beach and a lovely view on the city. Summer can be very hot but it’s just… I can’t find the right words for it. You just have to experience it!
