Holiday Diary: Summer in Stockholm

It’s time to talk travel again and this time it’s Stockholm’s turn to shine! It has been a few weeks now since we took a quick trip over to Sweden’s capital, a fascinating city made up of islands, and as my first trip to this wonderful country it definitely didn’t disappoint. From our gorgeous oasis of a hotel to the ABBA Museum, we had an amazing few days of exploring in the heat of Stockholm. Yes, you did read that right – it was HOT! They were having, as we are in Britain, an almost unheard of heatwave – I’m talking temperatures above 30 degrees celsius! With that said, we still managed to get to the heart of the city and I’m so excited to share with you everything I discovered in a diary style post.

Best Shops | Hilda Hilda | Swedish Hasbeens | ABBA Museum | Gudrun Sjoden | Acne Archive (We didn’t quite get here but it is supposed to be an amazing outlet store) | & loads more

Best Places to Eat | Torpedverkstan | Hotel Skeppsholmen | Moderna Museet (Modern Art Gallery)

Best Ways to Spend Your Time | Dance Through the ABBA Museum | Explore the Old Town | Grab a Boat out into the Sea | Visit a Museum – Vasa Museum, Moderna Museet (Art Gallery), Fotografiska & Skansen | Visit Tivoli Grona Lund Amusement Park for all the fun & thrills | Nobel Centre & Museum (yes, as in Nobel Prize!)

So, there we have it, another inspiring trip. I am so happy and grateful to be able to share my trip with you guys & let you in on my top Stockholm destinations! It is such a friendly, clean city with so much to offer and weather that even places like Italy would envy right now.
