The flight to
We made our way through passport control, collected our luggage and got a bus ticket to Central Station. The ride to Central Station took about 40 minutes, even with the traffic and snowy roads. Once off the bus, we made the short 10 minute walk to our hotel. If we had taken the train, it would have cost twice as much, but it would have only taken 20 minutes and we would have been let off the train right next to our hotel.

Going in to the Ice Bar cost 150.00 Kronor each, about $22.00 dollars US, if you’re a guest at the hotel, but the price includes your first drink. The price is a bit more if you are not a hotel guest and is definitely not a place you go to for a few drinks and to hang out. It’s more like a tourist attraction, with a bonus of drinking. :] The drinks are served in glasses made of ice, and are about the size of a double shot glass. After our free drinks, and then one more for the road, and of course a few pictures, we went back to our room. Moments later, we decided to go back out and get a tunnbrödrulle, which is a hotdog wrapped in a soft thin flatbread stuffed with mashed potatoes and condiments of your choice. We took our food back to our room, ate and then relaxed a bit before calling it a night. We had a great first day and are looking forward to tomorrow!
