Leaving the Town Hall, I looked up directions on my phone to work out where to get a bus/tram over to Djurgarden.  Unfortunately, didn't bank on lots of road works, also split level streets, where the road you wanted to be on was actually up there in the air - not really depicted on my tiny map!  The sun had now come out too, so I started to get a bit stressed and wound up.  We finally ended up retracing our steps back to the Central Station to catch the metro we were quite familiar with by now - eventually ending up back at the previous morning's tram stop and finally on our way to Djurgarden and on to the Vasa!

Our final day.  Despite Stockholm not being my favourite city in the world (lots of wonderful things about it but missing that certain something that makes me fall in love with a city) we did very much enjoy the laid back and friendly vibe and were sad for this to be our final day.  Thankfully we had a late flight, giving us pretty much a full day to make the most of.  Plan for today was to visit the City Hall and the Vasa Museum

Next plan was to get across town back to Djurgarden for the Vasa museum.  But as this post has become somewhat photo heavy, I will conclude on another post.

The weather for the Sunday was looking a bit better than forecast, so we decided to go with our plan to visit Skansen, apparently the worlds 'oldest open air museum'

Backdating a bit, want to finally get round to completing my Stockholm blog post before the next holiday!
so after a morning exploring Gamla Stan, the medieval city centre, it was nice and all but we wanted to see some of the countryside, so decided to take a boat trip to one of the closest archipelago islands, Fjaderholmarna.  Not the easiest names to pronounce when trying to enquire about tickets, but armed with a google map on my phone, I resorted to the international language of pointing and tickets for a boat trip were purchased!


quite photo heavy .... but unlike FB, with words to accompany the photos )

After breakfast on Saturday we set out to explore the town.  We weren't sure how this was going to go, having discovered that the Stockholm marathon was taking place that day -epic timing!

  gah, last weekend I was in Stockholm!!! How is that a week ago already.  This trip was intended to be a cheap weekend away instead of going to WGT - so not sure why we chose the most expensive city in Europe, but still, it was an adventure I was looking forward to.
