My City Guide: Stockholm in 48 Hours

This year, my Dad got married in Germany and so we decided to really make the most of our time abroad with a multi-city trip by train. As a result, we ended up touring one of the most beautifully rural places in the world: Scandinavia. 

After stretching our legs and testing the water in Copenhagen – you can get my Copenhagen city guide here – our journey continued into Stockholm. Travelling by train through Scandinavia is perhaps one of the easiest and cost-effective travel experiences I’ve ever had. Copenhagen to Stockholm was fairly straightforward and consisted of a train to Copenhagen airport, a train to Malmö where passports were checked, and then a straight train to Stockholm itself. It’s quite a long journey, with about 6 hours of travelling in total, but the trains were pretty comfortable – as comfortable as trains can be – with free Wi-Fi and an onboard café – their toilets weren’t too bad either.

  • The John Lewis Christmas ad has dropped so it’s officially Christmas now, right?!

This year’s character is #excitableedgar and I’m feeling torn. They’ve nailed the emotional side of things and it definitely brought tears to my eyes, but it didn’t feel all that Christmassy. I don’t know if it was the setting, the message, but really, it could be for any time of the year and for any event.

I’ve shared it in my stories if you’re interested and you’ve not seen it yet, plus a poll to see what everyone thinks.

We’ve got the Christmas light switch on this evening, so combined with the ad going live this AM, I’m taking that as a clear indication from the world that it’s perfectly acceptable to put my tree up this weekend 🙌 —

  • WHY IS IT SO COLD?! 🥶 —
Ugh, I am not impressed. If you’re in a warm place and want me to come live with you, please shout out. Will happily cook and clean for a warm living...

On another note, day 3 of the new routine has gone well 💪 and I’m currently working on my Cardiff blog(!)

  • It’s starting to get just that little bit colder at the moment which tells me Christmas is definitely coming but I’m not enjoying being cold *take me somewhere warm(!)*

I’m trialling a new process to help with the blogging which involves getting up earlier in the morning...a 5.10am alarm is acceptable, right?
—
It’s day 2 of 2 and I’ve only managed it once so we’ll see how long this lasts...
—
Are you an early bird when it comes to getting things done? Or are you more of an evening owl?

  • Happy Friday! What are your weekend plans?
—
We’re going to be heading to the Winchester Bonfire Night tomorrow and then probably taking it easy on Sunday. We’ve had a busy few weekends the last couple so looking forward to taking some time out 😍
—
It’s also gotten a lot colder in the last 48 hours and I’m not happy about it. There was frost out this morning which is a sign of things to come and I hate being cold 😭

PHOTO: a rare photo with my Stepmum on the Dittmer Bruecke in Bad Fallingbostel. It was so nice to see family last weekend (especially as we hadn’t visited in over 2 years!)

We spent a long weekend visiting my Dad in Germany and had a great time. It was pretty chilled with loads of movies but we managed to squeeze in a few activities.
—
Here’s some highlights from the local Jahrmarkt which takes place every year. It’s just a little fun fair with a few rides, good food, and - my Dad’s favourite - a pub trailer 😂
