Day 8- Stockholm

Stockholm is, hands down, my favorite city in Europe. It's been so long that I've been so enamored by a city like this. The tales are true. People are immensely tall, very blonde, and gorgeous. The city is clean, well organized, and easy to navigate. There are modern bits and really historic bits, walkable bits and bikeable bits. I honestly can't think of a single bad thing to say about Stockholm.

The trip began on a rainy arrival to The Red Boat. We grabbed dinner and beer at Akkurat before taking a drunken trip to the 7-Eleven before crashing for the night. (I really love drunk convenience store runs. You buy all the stuff you want to buy but never would sober.) The next day was spent at Skogskyrkogården, then the city center for Sunday shopping.

Walking down the bridge that connects Sodermalm with Gamla Stan.

The Woodland Cemetery, where Greta Garbo's ashes are housed.



There's art in some of the Tunnelbana stations.



  1. I freaking love kriek beer. I make a point to drink tons of it in Europe. The kinds you can get around here totally suck.

  2. that tunnelbana station art is off da chain. there is no reason why every major city should not be sprinkled with doolights for the sight.
