It’s about time I got around to posting these… wouldn’t you say?
I’m sort of indifferent to Stockholm. It’s a beautiful city, but very expensive (like the rest of Scandinavia), the shopping wasn’t great (no big surprise), and it’s not different enough from Copenhagen to make me want to revisit.
As a tourist, I don’t think I’d bother much with Scandinavia. Scandinavia has a lot going for it, but thinking from a tourist perspective, if I were crossing the Atlantic and only had 10 days to spend in Europe, I’d much rather spend it in Italy, Amsterdam, England, Berlin, Paris, etc..
I’m a bit spoiled these days because I live fairly close to a popular cruise ship port, so I’m pretty much on vacation most weekends ;-)
I ease into my Saturdays, wandering the farmer’s markets, flea markets, the grounds of the royal summer residence, the cobblestone streets and seaside, ending the day tucked into blanket next to a fire with Opie sleeping next to me.
I’m off to London next week for a bit of shopping :)
