Stockholm Arlanda airport is fancy
Fancy as in plants everywhere, shiny shiny floors, it just puts most airports that I’ve been to, to shame.
Be prepared to spend a lot of money
Stockholm is very expensive. We bought 2 half baguettes, a bottle of coke and a bottle of water and it came to £38. £38!!!!
Recently I visited Stockholm, Sweden with my boyfriend. And we were there for 4 nights, 3 days. As we were only there for a short amount of time, we didn’t get to see all that Stockholm has to offer, so here is a guide of what we did during our time there. From being in Stockholm when the weather was getting cold, and daylight getting shorter, you can tell that being there in winter will be completely different to summer
Where to stay
We stayed in an AirBnb (for me, this is the best option) in Hammarbyhojden which was a 15 minute walk from Globen Station which then a 20 minute metro journey to the centre of Stockholm. For many, this may seem quite far away but if you’re on a budget and don’t mind exploring further out of the centre then its great! For 4 nights, it costs us £240.
The last time I went camping was for a festival in the middle of Belgium, and I’m not sure how I survived as it was THAT cold, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. But when we arrived and saw the place, I completely relaxed and knew we would have the best time that weekend and my gosh, we did.
The farm consisted of the main Lodge which had sofas, log fire, tables and chairs, and also a kitchen. The Lodge is where breakfast was served every morning. The breakfast catered to many dietary requirements (vegetarian and vegan). Having being very hungover on both mornings, having a full English breakfast was just a perfect way to get you through the day.
