Since 2008, I have visited Sweden (in particular, Stockholm) on several occasions. By my reckoning, I’ve “lived there” for almost six months. I really like the country, have made some friends there, and whenever there’s a few spare dollars in my account, I can’t help but be tempted to pay another visit. These are my travel tips from my visits to Sweden, all in one place. Unlike some of the many other reviews/tips you’ll read, these mostly don’t include information about entry times, prices etc, it’s more what I thought/felt about the many things I have done.

    “Excuse me, I have to take some more photographs”, I said to my friend Mattias, as we enjoyed conversation and a beer at Blå Dörren (a bar at Slussen). Though the sunset last night was not as spectacular as earlier in the week, the night colours (once the sun had set) were beautiful.… Read the rest

    Take The Other Turn

    I was on my way to see a new exhibition at the ABBA Museum, highlighting the artists who have appeared over the years at Stockholm’s amusement park, Grona Lund. However, as I got off the ferry, I took a right turn instead of a left.… Read the rest

    Closed on Monday

    If you’re planning a visit to Uppsala and you like things to be open, Monday probably isn’t the day you should visit. In the back of my mind, I knew most museums and galleries were probably going to be closed, but I headed off anyway.… Read the rest

    Early Riser

    Even though I have been told on a few occasions, I should keep the blind closed at night, due to the early morning sunrise, I have not bothered much with the advice.… Read the rest
