Welcome to Stockholm!
There’s nothing like the excitement of arriving to a new place. While we have both traveled extensively around Europe, this is our first time to visit it together, which makes it particularly fantastic.
We booked our tickets to Stockholm months ago. It was an impulse buy, based on the fact that flights were ridiculously cheap. We had 24 hours to return the tickets, and we almost did. What were we thinking, going to the most expensive region in the world on our next-to-nothing income?
But then we Googled more photos of Stockholm and decided we just had to make it work.
We’re so glad we did. We love Stockholm. Although it is just about as pricy as everyone warned, it is also absolutely gorgeous. Luckily for us, our favorite activity in Stockholm is free: walking.
I’m pretty sure we walked nearly every street in Stockholm. This is partly because we did AirB&B, stayed at the longest running Inn in Sweden (full review coming soon), and couchsurfed. Each accommodation was in a very different area of town, providing us with great new perspectives – even if we did have to tote around our ridiculous amount of gear on a few too many buses.
We have left Stockholm now for the north, where we’ll be cross-country skiing, dog sledding, and hoping to view the Northern Lights. Be sure to follow us on facebook, twitter, Google+, and Instagram for live updates on the adventure.
We’ll be back to Stockholm in late May. While we couldn’t be more excited for all the new activities we’ll be participating in during the upcoming weeks, we have to say – we’re already looking forward to ambling the city streets once more.
