I am part Swedish and Norwegian so I was really excited to take a trip to Stockholm in 2011. I finally found a place where I truly felt like I fit in with all of the tall blonde people cruising the streets. One thing I did not realize when I went there was that I went at a time in the year when the sun goes down around 3pm (clearly my friends and I did a lot of investigating before booking our trips…). I tried to explore as much as I could during the morning but the second half of the day was mostly spent trying to stay warm and shopping.

To take in as much as the city had to offer in the least amount of time I decided to do the hop on – hop off bus tour which is pretty famous all around Europe. It was a great way to quickly see the city while it was still light out.

After an afternoon of scrambling around the city my friends and I went to Ice Bar Stockholm. The entire bar is made of ice including the cups, seating and the bar. Because everything is made of ice and therefor it is freezing there, they give you these awesome big blue jackets to wear to stay warm. The drinks are really expensive since it’s a very touristy thing to do, but it’s fun to try in at least one country in Europe (most have something similar… my sister went to one in Barcelona).
