There is a good chance that I’ll end up in Stockholm, again, this summer for at least a couple of half days and maybe a couple of full ones as well. I feel like I’ve done all of the regular things in Stockholm (bike tour, Vasa Museum, boat tour, Old Town–many times, metal/rock pubs, etc.) What else am I missing? Has anyone ever done something in, or near, Stockholm that they really enjoyed that isn’t on the normal radar?

Today’s photo is the view out my window just before landing in Copenhagen in June of 2016. The land in the distance isn’t Denmark. That’s Malmö, Sweden.

Stockholm Bike Tour

In the summer of 2017 I went on an awesome bike tour of Stockholm courtesy of Tor and Kerstin Simonsson of Stockholm Cykel. Two of us signed up. The other person, who I didn’t know, couldn’t ride a bike so it was just me and Tor. Tor was awesome. The bike was excellent. Unlike a typical bike tour, where you are “stuck” with a bunch of other tourists going to the same places as everyone else doing a bike tour, Tor’s tour avoided most of the touristy spots and was very personal.

Today’s photo comes from part of our ride. I’ve been to Stockholm three times, and 99% of what I saw on this tour I had never seen before. Highly recommended.

Stockholm’s Vasa

…the Vasa headed out of Stockholm harbor on its maiden voyage. Less than a mile later it sunk. 330 years passed before it was brought to the surface again. The Vasa Museum is the current resting place where I took these (five) photos (and stitched them into one) last summer.

Happy birthday, Martin Mendez!
