Welcome to Stockholm, Sweden!
Isn't it great that we can travel the world without actually going anywhere? What a time to be alive! All you need is a bit of imagination.
If you have been keeping up with the news, you'll know that the entire world is pretty much shut down due to a pandemic, which means traveling isn't possible right now and won't be for some time, but not to worry! I am going to show you how to “vacation” at home.
With my new “Virtual Travel” series, I am going to take you guys to some of my favorite places around the world, and we are starting with Stockholm, Sweden!
I am half Swedish and have been to Stockholm countless times. It's a city that amazes me, and I am not just talking about the endless amounts of meatballs.
Anywho, all meatballs aside (for now). I chose Stockholm first because it's one of my favorite cities in Europe. It's a city comprised of 14 islands connected by 57 bridges and home to fascinating museums, drool-worthy food (chocolate and meatballs, duh!), and a laid back culture that strives for a “work hard but not too hard” lifestyle.
This guide will take you around Stockholm, showing you many of the city's prominent landmarks, guiding you through a few of the best museums, tasting some traditional Swedish dishes, and much more!
So get your “bags” packed, and let's start our day wandering the beautiful city of Stockholm!
What to get before “traveling” to Stockholm
To start, we will be making a traditional Swedish breakfast, which includes bread, butter, cheese, and any extra toppings you want, like cucumbers, tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, Swedish caviar, cold cuts, and sausages. You can also get muesli with plain yogurt if you would like.
Later in the day, we will have a Fika, a traditional Swedish coffee break, so to be prepared, you should get a few things ready:
- Make sure you have coffee readily available
- bake a batch of Swedish Cinnamon rolls, any cake or cookie recipe, or buy pastries from the store.
And finally, we will be making Swedish meatballs so make sure you have the ingredients you need!
That's all you need to fully partake in this virtual Stockholm experience!
