The train trip into Stockholm was a beautful scenic ride, and was so comfortable and warm...I loved it!! It was great seeing all the rural areas during the winter, it really is beautiful. We rolled into Stockholm at round 7pm and walked to our hostel pretty quick as it was so easy to find. We crashed quite early but headed out for a quick walk to get a feel for the place first.
We got up the next day...to free internet and endless free tea and coffee!! Yay! That was the best thing about the hostel and we surely made the most of it while staying there! We eventually managed to get out the door and see the city...firstly walking along the river and making our way over to Skansen, via bridges and a short boat ride.
Up early and eager we had a flight to catch. We stopped off first at the supermarket where you get vouchers to use in exchange for empty bottles. We managed to get one little lolly each with our voucher but it was heaven! i loooove lollies! Time was flying...and we still didnt know how long it was going to take to get to this airport. Ryanair...no comment. Got to the bus station to find that there were no buses for another couple of hours. Ran to the train station and there was one leaving not long after so we jumped on that. By this stage we were not sure whether we were gonna make it.... got off train in middle of nowhere to catch a connecting bus, that was late. Uh oh. Got to the airport 20 mins before departure and all ticket desks were shut. AHHH! But luck was in our favour....the flight was delayed!!!! so they put our bags through and we went on our merry way, until Johnny got stopped at security as he still had his swiss army knife on him. So we sent little swiss home for another visit!!!! Eventually we were on the plane to our next destination.......Riga, Latvia!!!
