trip part III
Finally I've got some photos from out trip together for you. Only took a few weeks!
I'm just going to start at the beginning and work my way through so this will be broken up into 3 or 4 parts.
We arrived in Stockholm later in the evening. My husband and I encountered several obstacles, the biggest of them being that our iPhones stopped working once we left the US. No more Internet, texting or calling. All we could do was take pictures and pick up the occasional free wifi in cafes & such. That really slowed us down because we had to use a paper map to navigate. It felt like we had gone back in time 10 years! So we spent our first evening looking for our hotel and finding dinner so I don't have a lot of great photos from the first couple days, mostly a bit of the clean parts of our room from the next morning. If you followed me on Instagram, some of this may look familiar.
The Story Hotel is where we decided to book our first night. It was in a great central location close to so much and we had several recommendations for this place from friends & fellow bloggers, including my contributor Deborah. Story has a really great restaurant and bar downstairs as well so we ended up ordering from their menu and eating dinner in our room, a cheeseburger and the fish & chips. All was really delicious and fast and since we were so tired from 17+ hrs of traveling, it was so nice to eat, relax and watch tv.
The next morning we had to head right back to the airport to fly to Copenhagen so we had (free) breakfast there at the hotel (a very good one at that!) and walked back to the station. On our way however we passed so many great stores including COS, which is one of my all time favorite places. This store in particular was right on the corner so you could see quite a bit from the outside, two levels of beautifully simple things. There's something so calming about shopping here, it's not overwhelming and yet every little corner, table and shelf held something really special. I could have spent all morning just here, looking at jewelry and shoes and little leather bags.
I've been very sick for the past week but thankfully today it seems I'm getting better, soooo I should have the rest of our trip photos edited and posted in not too long.
Have a great week everyone!
