I’m a few days late to The Gallery this week; my excuse is we are still on holiday.
We have been staying in Stockholm for the last few days and we loved it.
Stockholm is a fantastic city to visit with children. The public transport is clean, varied and efficient, and the kids especially like the trams. The museums are plentiful and are all pretty child friendly and there is ice cream every where.
We tried to do as much as possible in the three days we were in Stockholm as our next 4 days will be spent in rural Sweden, 20 minutes from the nearest shop, apparently. We should be able to find something to do but it’s much easier to tire kids out when activities are close at hand.
The photo above is a tour boat we spotted sailing into the harbour at Stockholm. We were actually in the market for a boat tour, but had been eyeing up more conventional vessels. Of course, once the kids saw this boat, that was it.
Our first boat ride around the harbour was spent wearing horned helmets and trying to get ‘landlubbers’ to wave at us!
This has been a real adventure of a holiday, with discoveries at every turn. Holidays should be about exploring new places and trying new things, and none of us have ever sailed around Stockholm in a viking ship before!
