Hej Hej!! Stockholm

I left Frankfurt (via Ryanair) and landed in Stockholm. I had my first experience with trouble/ luck with Ryanair. As you know, I’m traveling with a¬†Vera Bradely (carry-on size)¬†these weeks. For the first time my carry-on was actually weighed and yes it was overweight…by 5 kilos. The employee then told me about the surcharges unless I was able to meet the 8kilo maximum weight.¬†¬†Thus, the I started to layer clothes like I have never done before. The good news? I was able to pack on 5 kilos of clothing (jeans, shorts, and a dress with gym shoes and 2 shirts).

Anyways, I landed in Stockholm and took the bus from the airport to the centre. I had a few hours to explore before I met with Malin (a friend of Sandra’s I met in Greece and it letting my stay with her while in Stockholm. The central station at Stockholm is great, for a fair price I was able to leave my bag in a locker and explore. The first thing I decided was to rent a bike. I find that when I can, being outside beats any metro/bus in a new city. I would of walked around but Stockholm is huge and felt it was better to hop on a bike.

The city was beautiful and I know I will go back. There is something about islands making up an entire city. Malin took me to have lunch on a hill overlooking the entire city one day. We also went to Skansen and saw Lorraine (eurovision winner) live! Additionally, Malin lives right next to the water. The water in Sweden is so clean that you can go in any water throughout the city (very different from Thessaloniki’s water). One of the mornings I made sure to take a morning swim.

Overall, I must say I love Stockholm. There is something about the city, the nature and the feeling. One of the cities I would definitely take a job if the opportunity arised. Next stop? Sveg.
