Stockholm holds a very special place in my heart
If you asked me what happiness was, I’d say right away that it’s laying on my friend’s couch, her cats on my lap, reading a good book/watching something on Netflix and eating the pizza we just came over from buying walking across the woods.
The Royal Palace
So we bought ourselves some tickets and visited the majestic palace that is still being used by the Royal Family. In fact, let me tell you my friends have run into the royals many times, but more around their actual residence which is Drottningholm Palace (you can read more about it and see the pictures I took here, in last year’s post about my trip). The guide was fun and had a great sense of humor, and you could tell he loved history because he went off at a tangent quite often and ended us gifting us like 10 minutes worth of information!
Did you know this palace is the second biggest in all the world? (first being Versailles) :O! In fact, many of the interiors of the palace were inspired by Versailles, like the ballroom. I’m not exactly good at telling history, so I’ll leave this link here that explains the story of the palace really well.
Visiting Eldgarnsö Nature Reserve
We finished the trip by driving to a garden centre that had a small, cozy coffee shop for fika. I loved this day the most!
