Play Now, Sleep Later

I’ve got some catching up to do. So let’s get going!

We got a recommendation to check out Rosendals Trädgård, a park right next to Skansen. 


Need a break from the city? This is for you! Orchards, gardens, hedgemazes full of bees (the friendly kind). 

It was so nice that we decided to have lunch here. You can find the cafe inside the greenhouse. Most things are served a la carte, but a few of the hot items must be ordered at the counter. Card only, no cash. 

Lots of vegetarian options

Another recommendation from a friend was to check out a secondhand bookstore across from the Stockholm City Library. Most of the books are in Swedish, but it was a cool find. 

(I forgot to take a picture. So here’s one of some street art from around the corner) 

From there, our journey led us to a park with a beautiful view of the Stockholm rooftops. 


With almost seven miles walked, were ready for a break. So back to Swedish Brewing Company for a couple beers and a chance to learn about Swedish dental practices.

So now onto Saturday. I did not sleep well the night before so we got a late start. Luckily, this little known piece of Swedish culture is only a 20 minute walk from our house.


Oh you’ve heard of it before? 

How could we not go?? It’s like going to Rome and not seeing the Coloseum!

…ok maybe not. But it’s probably the cheapest Swedish lunch you’re bound to find. 

Probably around $10 and I couldn’t even finish everything
 After making our way down the levels and through the maze of household goods , it was time for a nap. 


The Chicago Club was hosting another swing dance (as it does almost every night) that started at 9pm. So we had a couple hours to kill. 

On the same block as the club was Pub Kloster Söder. Nothing special. Just cheap drinks and a soccer game on the tv. 


Just what we needed.
