Taking stock of Stockholm

In our last post we mentioned that we were going to Stockholm, well...we’re back and we had a great time! There was plenty to see and do - some of you might have caught a few snippets of our trip on Instagram here and here.

We went to the Royal Palace, Fotografiska (a really nice photography museum), the modern art museum - Moderna Museet (spent a lot of time in the shop making tricky decisions about the Andy Warhol posters), Vasa Museet (museum about a huge warship that sank in 1628 and was salvaged in 1961 almost fully intact) and we also went to the Skansen museum and zoo (to learn about life in Sweden through the ages, and to see moose :) at the same time).

Of course no trip to Stockholm would be complete without visiting a few shops so when we weren't being culture vultures, we were perusing Monki, Cheap Monday, Urban Outfitters, DesignTorget and other more independent and second-hand shops.

We ate kanelbulle (a kind of cinnamon bun), meatballs, pickled herring (surprisingly tasty), smoked salmon, and had a few drinks too...but not too many because we might have broken the budget otherwise.

We also went to Urban Deli (nice for drinks and food) and a very nice place nearby called Parlans for the most delicious handmade caramels in lovely 40's style surroundings.

We walked along Södermalm, listened to live music, went on a boat trip and all in all we had a ball.

Thank you Stockholm!
