Hello and welcome back to Stockholm, Sweden.
Catch up on the first few posts here:
Yes, we ate a place called Wiener and yes we laughed at it heartily.
Compared to my more focused travel posts, this is more of an overview of part of an afternoon we had. Stockholm is a city well adept for a slow-paced, lazy afternoon.
I ordered the ‘macaron cake’ expecting a cake..what I got was a macaron with 3 raspberries in. It cost £7.
It was good, but not worth £7.
The hot chocolates were incredible, however I’m much more of a coffee person and came to regret this choice!
Focusing on not chatting to our friends, but appreciate the gorgeous bar.
This would be my Humans of New York picture.
Calm waters, untouched snow and an incredible Parliament building. I think I feature the Parliament of every country I visit, I find them fascinating.
Myself and Anna, my uni flatmate of two years, known for her excessive use of the word YAAAAS and her ability to know what MAC lipstick someone is wearing from up to 200 yards.
Museum of Medieval Stockholm. This place is difficult to find, located on a small island with Parliament, the entrance is hidden from sight! Keep trying until you find it, essentially.
I believe this is one of the oldest pieces of writing to exist?! Yet I wash my pants with a note in the pocket and it’s destroyed into oblivion.
You can click this picture to read about this boat in more detail, but in short, it’s really fucking old and you definitely shouldn’t touch it. I definitely didn’t touch it. Like don’t touch it even once. Definitely not more than once.
I know that’s been a whistlestop tour of the Museum, but what’s the point of showing it all? Then you’ll never go!
It’s free to enter and not too busy, so it’s totally worth it.
Just outside are some incredible views though.
Next time we enter a bar made of ice, spoiler alert: drinking in subzero temperatures gets you wasted super quick.
