It was my first time in Scandinavia despite having visited over 30 countries. I spent a week exploring Stockholm and the outer archipelago. Gamla Stan was one of my favorite parts of Stockholm owing to its unique Swedish architecture. The winding cobblestone streets were beautiful and I really like Stortorget for its famous buildings. Another great area especially for food and drinks is Södermalm, a well-known hipster hangout.
Heading out of Stockholm, it is surrounded by beautiful islands. My personal favorite was Vaxholm which is an hour’s trip by boat and is a nature lover’s paradise surrounded by red cabins. This was a great location to get some cool drone footage.
As a music and technology lover, no trip to Stockholm is completed without visiting Spotify’s headquarters. A company that needs no introduction, I was impressed with the large open floor space and really cool design. As a casual gamer, I loved the fact that Spotify has a full gaming room.
To top it off, my stay in Stockholm was made extremely comfortable by At Six Hotel. A brand-new hotel inspired by the Scandinavian design, I especially appreciated the all black room, where I slept like a baby. The fresh and generous breakfast was an amazing way to start the morning and get ready to explore. Don’t forgot to order a Fika on your way out!
