Sweden has been on my short list of “Must Sees” so I was beyond excited when my boyfriend got invited to a conference in Stockholm. Gorgeous lakes, summery green fields, and quaint summer cottages danced in my imagination. I knew I’d like Sweden, but I had no idea how much I’d fall in love with Stockholm. The food, the scenery, the people…everything was amazing.
July in Stockholm is absolutely amazing – we lucked out and aside from one day of rain, the weather was warm (well, for Sweden) and sunny. Everyone takes advantage of the long daylight hours and outdoor restaurants and bars are absolute musts. It tripped me out a few times, though, as I’d still be wide awake at midnight due to the sun still peaking over the horizon.
My week long trip was split in to three parts – Stockholm, Svartso, and back to Stockholm. Our first hotel stay was at the Lydmar. This hotel was absolute perfection. Stylish, chic, delicious, and a perfect location.
During the middle part of my week in Stockholm we took a ferry out to one of the islands in the archipelago to go “glamping”. I took a million photos there so I’ll cover that in another post. Gotta go find some lunch now…this post has made me hungry.
