Boat hotel in Stockholm

Sleep on a 19th Century ship (af Chapman) in the Stockholm harbor? Yes, please. Unfortunately, it was booked so I stayed in the former army barracks next to the ship, now a hostel. That was the last time I will stay in a hostel. I’m way too old for that, but the views were amazing.

Fun fact, this ship’s maiden voyage (1888) went from England to Portland, Oregon.

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?

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.
