8 Hours in Stockholm

Sometimes when I travel, I don’t have long to linger. That was the case when we headed to Tromsø, Norway, for the Midnight Sun Run. We had a wee eight hours or so in Stockholm.

And there’s no way we would accept staying at the Arlanda Airport that whole time. We hopped on the Arlanda Express train – the fastest way from the airport to the center of Stockholm. From there, we did what we always do in a new city: walk.

Besides logging some miles, we ate some reindeer pizza. We people-watched. We shot photos. And we fell asleep in the Stockholm Cultural House.

Here’s what we saw. 

A bright morning in old town Stockholm.
Church steeples puncture the Stockholm skyline.
Stockholm City Hall – like something from the past.

Stockholm residents were happy to enjoy the sun.
The weather finally turned dreary and drove us indoors.
