First Stop, Stockholm Sweden

The very first stop whenever you begin a big adventure somewhat sets the tone of the trip.  Luckily, Stockholm Sweden was the city to set our travel mood.  For those of you who haven’t gone to Sweden or anywhere in Northern Europe, you’re missing out.  The land scape, the history, and the beautiful people are all reasons you should go visit the Scandinavian area.

There is so much to see its hard to see it all.  We walked through parks, alleys, and streets just to look at the houses at the end of the block. FullSizeRender 9.jpg

The people of Sweden are all models.  I don’t know why but that region of the world is absolutely gorgeous.  All the men and women blonde headed, blue eyed, and groomed to perfection.  These upright citizens also have a key sense for fashion. FullSizeRender 84.jpg

While we were there we went and checked out the Tivoli.  This is the amusement park for Europe.  However this was no normal amusement park, it was huge and scary.

We left the city with countless memories and a better understanding of how European towns work.  We learned to ride the metro and bargain with street vendors.  Stockholm, Sweden is the perfect city for any new traveler to start their journey.  The Swedish will welcome you with open arms and allow you to comfortably discover the city.
