    Skansen

    September 15, 2016 in Sweden

    Um doch noch einen Elch in Schweden zu sehen, gingen wir in das Freilichtmuseum Skansen. Dort konnten wir viele weitere Tierarten ansehen wie zum Beispiel Eulen, Bären, Luchse, Seerobben oder auch einen Wolf. Es gab neben den Tieren auch noch weitere schöne Attraktionen zu sehen, die das alte Schweden wiederspiegeln.🇸🇪

    23.8.2016 Stockholm

    August 23, 2016 in Sweden

    Kilometer: 1.686

    Sonnige Grüße aus der schwedischen Hauptstadt in die Heimat!
    Direkt nach unserer Ankunft in Norwegen haben wir uns auf den Weg zur Ostseeküste nach Schweden gemacht. Nach einer Nacht in Örebro (die schwedischen Namen sind so komisch - aber noch nichts im Vergleich zu den finnischen!) fanden wir einen Campingplatz in einem Vorort von Stockholm, in Bredäng. Von hier aus radelten wir vorgestern ins Centrum und kamen nassgeschwitzt an. Gestern nahmen wir die U-Bahn... 😁
    Nach Spaziergängen durch das sonnige Stockholm, einer interessanten Bootstour, einem Museumsbesuch in den Livrustkammaren, dem Erleben des "change of guargs" am Königspalast, viel Entspannung und Schlaf in unserem schönen Camper und noch viel mehr Erlebnissen geht es nun gleich weiter an der Ostseeküste nach Norden. Die Zivilisation wird dünner... 😉

    Stockholm - Rainy day

    August 25, 2017 in Sweden

    8 Stunden Zugfahrt - check ✅
    Wenig Schlaf - check ✅
    Scheiß Wetter - check ✅
    Gute Laune - CHECK!!
    So starteten wir in den verregneten erstenTag in Stockholm. Erstmal machten wir uns auf die Suche nach unserem Hostel, um die Rucksäcke abzugeben. Die Suche war erfolgreich und so starteten wir mit unserem Schlechtwetterprogramm im Royal Palace. In einem der größten noch belebten Schlösser Europas befinden sich jetzt die Schatzkammer, das Drei-Kronen-Museum, das Antikemuseum, sowie natürlich die königlichen Gemächer an sich.
    Nach schier endlos dauernder Suche nach leistbarem Fastfood (wir fanden schlussendlich einen Subway), ging es frisch gestärkt weiter zur Bootsfahrt wo wir doch noch einige Sonnenstrahlen genossen. Im Hostel haben wir uns dann noch leckere Nudeln gekocht.
    Solltet ihr auch einmal in einer Hafen-Stadt sein solltet ihr unbedingt checken ob es Boote gibt die bei dem Öffi-Ticket inkludiert sind. Sowohl in Kopenhagen als auch in Stockholm haben wir uns damit teure Touristen-Fallen erspart.
    Fazit: Stockholm bietet auch bei Regen ein tolles Programm. Erster Eindruck: hektischer als die vorigen Städte dennoch bleiben wir gespannt wie sich die Stadt bei Schönwetter zeigt.

    Stockholm - Last day

    August 27, 2017 in Sweden

    Caro - falls du das liest...wir vermissen dich!
    Heute war ein trauriger Tag, Caro hat uns verlassen.
    Trotz aller Trauer geben wir weiterhin zu fünft alles und so stand heute das Freiluftmuseum Skansen am Programm. Skansen ist Schweden auf kleinstem Raum mit Windmühlen, Bauernhöfen, Lappenhütten und nordischen Tieren. Wirklich sehenswert und weiterzuempfehlen!
    Danach machten wir uns auf den Weg zu einem süßen Café namens Saturnus (Viki falls du das liest danke für den super Tipp!!), wo es die besten Zimtschnecken gibt, die wir je gegessen haben. Gestärkt und voller Koffein fuhren wir in die Altstadt. Ein gemütlicher Spaziergang durch kleine süße Gassen (italienisches Flair - ahoi ) bildete den Abschluss des Tages und somit auch das Ende unseres Stockholmaufenthalts.
    Wo geht unsere Reise als nächstes hin? - Oslo wir kommen!♥
    Fazit: Stockholm bietet so viel zu erkundigen und ist somit auch für einen längeren Aufenthalt geeignet. Trotz teilweise schlechten Wetters hat uns Stockholm mit seinem Inselflair überzeugt.

    Delightful Stockholm

    July 22, 2016 in Sweden

    Wow, what a wonderful city Stockholm is! We have both really enjoyed experiencing what this place has to offer, even if only for a couple days. First, to wrap up Norway...

    When we last wrote we were preparing to head to Flam via ferry. We got to see the area of the Sognefjord upon which Arrendelle from Disney's Frozen was based. You can definitely see the resemblence between this area of the fjord and the artistry in the movie, though there wasn't much snow at the time. Notably, the animators really did something right with the imagining of the trolls in the movie by combining the look of the traditional troll character in Norway with the distinct colors of the moss and rockface in the fjord. Rachel was waiting for the boulders to break out in song at times. Anyway, we spent a nice afternoon in Flam. However, we discovered that there are limited options for affordable activities there. We were interested in kayaking but it turns out that without a Norwegian kayak license, you are required to hire a guide, which made the cost prohibitive. We searched the (very small) town for other boat rentals and eventually found the one canoe that is for rent in town; none of the motor boats in the marina were rentable, apparently (though we would've loved to explore the fjord in one of those). The canoe was on the smaller side, so the group consensus was for Cindy and Nick to have some mother-son time and go out on the canoe together while Scott and Rachel stayed on dry land. Nick had a great time exploring the fjord with his mom and getting back to nature. They returned just in time to see the giant cruise ship leaving the small harbor; it was possibly bigger than the town itself.

    The following day we rode on the scenic Flam Railway and then continued back to Oslo. The Flam Railway was really fun and beautiful; we highly recommend it! It connects you to the Oslo-Bergen lines so is easily accessible if you are seeing the country by either train or ferry. We met a pair of Norwegians who were taking the train up and then doing the three day hike back down to Flam. Many visitors also bike down the trail which is a one day trip. This sounded like something that would be fun to do if we can make it back to Flam one day! After arriving back in Oslo, we went to Vigeland Sculpture Park, the largest park in the world where all of the sculptures are created by the same artist. We brought a picnic and joined the Norwegians under the trees (it sprinkled on and off) to enjoy the evening. It was very beautiful and a must-see for anyone going to Oslo.

    The past two days we have been back in Stockholm, Sweden. It has been very cool to actually get to see the city (we were only here for about 8 hours overnight at the beginning of this week). We checked out the Vasa Museum on the day we got back and learned the very interesting story of a formerly lost ship that was eventually found and extracted from the sea floor in the 1960s. It was quite intriguing to learn about the errors made in building this ship and the historical context. As amateur students of art, culture, and archaeology, there were many displays that interested us. The museum included a free guided tour as well as free audio guides if you bring your wifi-enabled device and headphones. Very cool.

    Yesterday was definitely a highlight of the trip. We got to sleep in (which is always nice!) and then went on an adventure with Cindy and Scott on their last day in town. The four of us rented bicycles and rode around the Djurgarden area of Stockholm. There is a ton of green space as well as many trails and marinas to explore. It was a very bike-friendly as well as pedestrian-friendly park with so much to see, including forests, fields, old houses, canals, geese, ducks, cows, and horses. We got ice cream at one of the marinas and talked to some of the Swedes about their dogs (everyone seems to have a small pet dog they bring everywhere!). We really enjoyed the afternoon. For the evening, we found a small pub with decent happy hour prices right on the water in Gamla Stan, in/near the old town area of Stockholm. We snagged some seats on the front patio and watched the sunset over the canal with dinner and drinks. It was really a lovely evening, and we were lucky to have a lot of quality time and conversation with Cindy and Scott. Thanks for a great trip in Scandanavia, you two!

    Stockholm

    August 25, 2017 in Sweden

    Take two!

    So back to Stockholm airport to pick up Hannah and Luke.

    So not much to say sightseeing wise as the main reason for meeting here was the Stockholm leg of the World Triathlon Series. We headed in on the Saturday to watch the womens and mens tri starting next to the Town Hall.

    Busy day in beautiful sunshine, following the action across the city, we saw Jonny Brownlee win the mens race, which was pretty cool. Jodie Stimpson and the other female brits also made me desperate to get back on my bike! We also ended up watching the mens race with one of the brit athletes, Tom Bishops, mother and got a sneaky snap of him post race chatting to Louise Minchin.Read more

  • Day131

    Stockholm

    August 16, 2017 in Sweden

    And across the water we went... We were imagining the same type of ship that we had crossed in from Italy to Croatia. And we had been reliably informed that this particular trip was known as a "booze cruise", with people taking the trip to stock up on duty free and party. So what we therefore expected was a naff ship filled with boozy louts.. especially when they hand you the thingy you hang in your windscreen which helpfully reminding you of the drink drive limit in Sweden...

    But we were so wrong! Yes I can imagine a lot of people come on the boat to party but they must do it in style! There were various restaurants, a two storey night club, outside cocktail bar, casino, spa, live bands and not to mention the duty free shopping world 😳 and in walked us the great unwashed from our cabin in our casual clothing. Looked a little out of place next to the couples ballroom dancing.. We made the most of it with a nice meal and a lovely cocktail and waved goodbye to the beautiful Finnish sunset (see picture 1).

    On arrival into Stockholm the next morning (see picture 2) we were greeted by a stunning view of the city skyline. We were so early that we left our car near our next Airbnb and travelled into the centre. Gamla Stan, the old town centre, was already busy with fellow tourists. We joined them through the streets and the had our first Fika. Fika is a Swedish tradition that I suppose would be called a "lifestyle" concept, It is traditionally in the afternoon (so we were a bit early for that too) when people meet to drink coffee, eat their body weight in cake and socialise. I can definitely recommend the Kanelbulle (cinnamon bun). Most definitely something I could get used to, and some may argue in my family we already do practice Fika!

    We returned to the Airbnb to await our host. After an hour of waiting he came down apologetically telling us his phone was broken (which I now think was a little untruth). Warning signs went off as we were shown upstairs past the pile of rubbish he had been removing from the flat.. Inside the place was quirky and not very clean. We also realised that the "free parking on premises" was actually "paid parking on street". When he left the four of us looked at each other.. the further we looked the worse it got. But we thought (well half thought) we could put up with it. After a night sleeping on top of the bedding, the morning came and the electricity went and the host couldn't be contacted. With even the most hardy of us deciding it was the last straw we showered in the dark packed our bags and left. Airbnb helped us with the cancellations and on explaining the situation they alluded to the fact this wasn't his first offence,

    We trawled the internet at lunch - tasty salmon and shrimp salad - and at an Espresso House - Swedish coffee chain - for alternative accommodation. We even randomly met an Airbnb host when on a walk from the guide book who showed us some great views of the city. He approached us when we were studying our map and evidently looking very lost. Unfortunately his place was booked but he told us a lot about the history of the city and the buildings we could see.

    Ended up finally booking a hotel at 7pm. A beautiful - and budget busting - hotel but definitely worth it to enjoy our last days in Stockholm!

    In a more relaxed mood on our final day we visited the Saluhall - a covered market full of Swedish treats. We took a ferry to the Vasa Museum which is the number one thing to do in Stockholm. It tells the history of a warship that cost 2% of Swedens then GDP and sank in Stockholm harbour on its maiden voyage in 1628. The ship was salvaged in 1961, watched by millions and 98% of the original ship is now on show in the museum.

    Things we discovered in Stockholm:

    It has really long escalators;
    There ARE a lot of blondes;
    Restaurants close early;
    Snapchat.

    Before dropping the girls back to the airport we popped into IKEA and had a 5kr hotdog. Well, when in Sweden...

    Stockholm die Zweite

    September 6, 2017 in Sweden

    Soooooo schön hier :) Den Tag über einen Ausflug mit Gästen begleitet und RIB-Boot gefahren. Mit 90 km durch die Schären gesaust - die Luft blieb mir kurzzeitig weg, was ein geniales Erlebnis.

    Stockholm Adventures

    January 3 in Sweden

    Today I explored the old city Gamla Stan, visited the Royal Palace and saw the changing of the guard, went on a walking tour of Gamla Stan, went to the Nordic museum and went to the Vasa museum.

    “The Vasa ship capsized and sank in Stockholm 1628. After 333 years on the sea bed the mighty warship was salvaged. Today Vasa is the world's only preserved 17th century ship and the most visited museum in Scandinavia.”Read more
