Stockholm Recap: Part 2

On my second day in Stockholm, I was still a tad full from my dinner the night before. I just had to try the Swedish meatballs when in Stockholm!


On Sunday, I headed off to the Central Train Station to grab some Starbucks (had to!). If you follow me on Instagram, you know I've been in a never-ending battle around London at Starbucks locations to spell, "Katie," correctly. Even the Starbucks that know me cannot spell my name. Usually it's Kitty. But, my friends, Stockholm got it correct!


Coffee in hand, I took a city tour to get a grasp of the history and more areas that I had no time to see.

Before I left Stockholm, I knew I had to make a pit-stop at the Abba Museum.


It was a fun museum, and I'm fairly sure my foot was tapping to the beat the entire time!



From there, I headed by the Royal Palace and the other Swedish government buildings.

And, finally, before I headed back to London...I stopped in to one of the subway stations. Stockholm's subway stations are famous for being works of art. And, the one I chose to venture into was not without art!


Stockholm was a great weekend away! I know I've added it my list to cities to explore again in the future as well as the rest of the country!
