As you may know, I just came back from a 4 day trip to Stockholm (day 1, 2, 3, 4) with a friend and well, I noticed that there are many things you need to know, do and get prepared before a such experience. Here are some of my tips to spend a wonderful, less stressful trip with one of your friends.
Let’s begin this post about my last day in Stockholm with a beautiful picture of Vaxholm, an island. My friend and I decided to take the boat to visit it and even if we were surprised by the expensive crossing, we enjoyed our time on the sea. The islands are very pretty, especially with autumnal colors, and it was funny to see people get off the boat with a suitcase, meaning they were coming home by boat.
After a veeery long day walking around Södermalm, we decided to visit two museums the following day. We visited on foot, of course, but this time it was much more difficult because of our tiredness, and also because of a grey and very cold weather. We firstly went to the Vasamuseet, a museum where you can admire a huge boat of the XVIIth century. To go there, we went along the water and discovered a classy neighborhood with a beautiful architecture. On the road, we met this amazing house / manor / palace / whatever that definitely looks like a magical one in Disney movies. And look at the leaves! This gradation is wonderful!
I went to Stockholm for five days and I come back with a wonderful story to tell. Some hours ago, I was still in Sweden trying to protect my face from the cold whereas most of the Swedish were only wearing a small coat; now, I am in my lovely and warm apartment in the South West of France, from where I can enjoy a blue sky and 21°C (68°F). Home, sweet home.
Tuesday was a long day. I was so stressed at the idea of leaving, forgetting my ID or even losing my ticket. I went to sleep at my friend’s place because she lives closer to the shuttle that leads to the airport. We spent the night speaking about us and stuff before falling asleep at 1 am… and waking up at 4 am. It is was so hard but we made it! We took the plane and had the chance to eat a pain au chocolat — where I live, it is called a chocolatine and let me tell you there is a huge debate in France around the name of that cake. To sum up, France is divided into two groups when it comes to speak about it, but it is not the matter here. We stopped over in Frankfurt where the sky was grey and the air wet, and took a second plane to go to Stockholm.Read More »
