Our flight descended gradually and my first views out the window were of the many islands that come together to form the area surrounding Stockholm.  It was very beautiful to see the many forests that were on the islands lying in the sea.  Our flight touched down perfectly on the runway and it was the first time that I was able to see our arrival from the camera that was mounted on the tip of the aircraft!  This was a very cool addition indeed!  We cleared customs quite quickly and took a few minutes to orient ourselves at the airport.  We found that we could take the #14 bus from the airport that had a stop right in front of the Jumbo Hostel.  When we arrived at the hostel we were pleasantly welcomed and relieved to find that our room was available at the early hour of 9:30 in the morning.  We both agreed that a shower was in order before any sightseeing was to take place!  We relaxed for a bit in the hostel and then rode the bus back to the airport and found a bus that went from Arlanda airport direct to downtown Stockholm Central Station.  This bus was a bit pricey, approximately $32 roundtrip from the city center and back but it was a clean coach with plenty of room to relax.
