This year it was on my bucket list to travel outside of the country so when Noah was asked to go to Sweden for work I took advantage and decided this would be my chance. I don't know when this opportunity would arise again.
I wanted to share my trip with you all. We had a great time.
We arrived in Stockholm on Monday and we were so exhausted we passed out when we reached the hotel. But after a well rested nap, we ventured out into the city.
There was shopping everywhere! There were more shops than there were places to eat. An H&M and Seven Eleven (funny enough) around every corner.
Oh, and also Starbucks (Thank Goodness)!
We took a train ride into Galve and Noah's co-worker showed us around and treated us to lunch one day. It was a first time on a train ride for the both of us and we enjoyed it.
When we got back we walked around the city a bit more. The architecture around Stockholm is so beautiful and carries such a history about it.
The royal palace
The streets of Galma Stan (Old Town)
Home of the Nobel Peace Prize
One night Noah's co-workers (Kenneth and Martin) took us around and we all went to dinner. It was a nice evening.
Noah went into the office on Wednesday and I was off on my own. Here's me trying out a street vendor hot dog!
And just like that it was time to head home. It was a pleasant trip but it was the longest I'd ever left the kids so I was itching to get back to them. I'm so happy I was able to check something big off my bucket list for the year. Hopefully we will be able to go back during the summer months when I hear is the best time to visit Sweden!
