Stockholm: A City So Chill It Has Mandatory Coffee Breaks

IMG_9316

After Copenhagen, we hopped on a super short (1 hr 15 min or so) flight over to Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, another country and city known for being almost scarily pleasant, and already living in the Bernie-esq superworld we wish we had. On the plane, I actually found an article in Wired about a guy from ABBA in the process of turning Sweden into a cashless society. As someone who hates an ATM fee or credit card charge, I’m onboard. When I find out Stockholm has a population of 900k and the entire country 10million, it makes a little more sense how they have it so good, but I’m still jealous and insanely curious.

Where we stayed: This was my first experience staying at an AirBnB shared apartment, and I’d definitely do it again. Typically I rent the entire apartment, but this cute spacious bedroom within an apartment on the island of Sodermalm (Stockholm is made up of a bunch of little islands that are both neighborhoods with subneighborhoods within them) worked out great for us, and was a prety good deal.
