    1. I loved it! Still can’t believe that’s where we ended up! We skipped the ABBA museum as neither of us where major fans. We hit the Vasa museum instead which I thought was awesome! Definitely a happy tick in the bucket list! Have you any travel plans this year? Xx

        1. I’ve never been so I can imagine there is so many amazing places to visit!! Where would you pick if you could go anywhere at all?? Xx

  1. I like Stockholm! We’ve been a couple of times – once around Christmas where we got to go to the Christmas market, and another time we went to a big nature park on a nearby island.Glad you had fun and I didn’t know that about where the name comes from!

    1. EVERYONE kept saying how amazing it was in the summer so I think another trip may be needed!! I really enjoyed it as a city for sure. The Christmas markets where fab!! Xx

Let me hear your thoughts!!
