The most common Gamla Stan photo you'd see!

So that's 2 out of 3 then! Prior to the summer of 2016, I'd never ventured into Scandinavia. My debut was a week in Copenhagen, and here I was, a year and a sniff later in Sweden. To me, travel has never really been about ticking off a list of countries just to pad on the stats. That would explain why I repeatedly visit France and the UK each year. That said, there was a time when I was swaying a bit more towards the old favourites. Hence, since 2015, I made the conscious decision to visit a new place (in addition to wherever I wanted to go, old or new) every time I visit Europe. I visited Latvia and Finland earlier this year for the first time. And, well, this trip it was Sweden's turn. 

I only had about 4 days so rather than plan an elaborate trip across the country, I chose to focus on Stockholm. It seemed to have enough to merit these 4 days, but given that I was headed there in the autumn-winter shoulder season, and I had a pretty tiring 2017, I really wanted to chill and nothing more.

Nearly 2 months removed from the trip, I can say I thoroughly enjoyed it. I look back at my time and think - how incredibly green, how incredibly quiet, and so many islands! Like I always do, here are a few photos that define the trip for those that don't have time to sift through the whole blog.
