Once I’d booked my bargain flights to Hamburg, and remembered that I’d already visited Berlin so Germany wasn’t a new country, I started looking for somewhere new to add on. Copenhagen was added because I’d always wanted to go but Stockholm, if I’m honest, wasn’t ever on my radar. The train times and prices worked well with the rest of my plan though, and the flight home too, so 72 hours in Stockholm was added to my trip.
I knew nothing about Stockholm whatsoever and even after a bit of research the main thing I was interested in was Stockholm’s Metro Stations, but even a street art obsessive can’t spend three days in tube stations so I needed a better plan, and I got to see a fair bit of the city in the end (in and amongst multiple pit stops for Warm Chocolate because Fibromyalgia is a nightmare in the cold)
Parliment was somewhere I passed on my way to my walking tour, and it was nice to sit and watch everyone rushing around for a few minutes, even though I have no idea about the politics in Sweden.
On my first day I’d booked a Walking Tour via Air B N B, and I spent a brilliant two hours with Ryan and a small group being shown around the city. We visited all sorts of places but I won’t share too much as I don’t want to ruin his tour-you should book via Air B n B and join him if you’re ever in the city.
Gamla Stan is the old part of the city, the old town as it’s known. Full of pretty buildings and really narrow alleyways, I went for a drink here with Ryan after the tour and then explored for a few hours before heading back towards the central station to go home.
