4 Beautiful Days in Stockholm, Sweden

After a long 10-hour flight with Norwegian Air, jet-lagged and exhausted, we finally arrived in Stockholm. It was 11 AM ( 9-hours ahead from California) which means it is past our bed time and our eyes are barely open. Luckily, unlike our time at Heathrow Airport in London, we zipped through customs and got on the Arlanda Express to the city center. 

Stockholm welcomed us with beautiful weather as told by friends that it snowed just a week prior. We had a cute Airbnb in Soddermalm, a trendy neighborhood in Stockholm, and Ostermalm, a ritzy and modern area close to downtown. Our visit to this beautiful city was an amazing start to our Scandinavian/Europe trip.

Our 4-days in Stockholm was filled with local hangouts, stroll through parks and museums and of course, plenty of food. This city is quite charming and we hope to return one day.

Day 1 (Friday): Dinner with friends at Flying Elk, Walk through Mosebacke (outdoor bar and venue with partial view of the city), Sticky Nikki for delicious & sticky ice cream treat.
