Road Warrior Update: Stockholm, day 3

Tip #5: Walk. Walking is a great way to immerse yourself in the local culture (assuming, of course, you aren’t using your walking powers for evil, e.g. strolling in huge ten-abreast hordes of souvenir-scavengers like schools of consumerist catfish). Walk your little feets off.

Tip #6: Your suitcase is heavy, right? And lifting heavy things makes us strong like bull? Figure the rest out on your own. If your knapsack has a top loop you can even sorta KB-style snatch the thing.

    “Schools of consumerist catfish”, eh? I sense you have seen far too much of Västerlånggatan, Gamla Stans main tourist streak and/or Drottninggatan. I’m sure you’ve noticed, but if you take one street above or below Västerlånggatan you’ll escape most of the crazy hordes of tourists and still get where you’re going.

    I’m terribly curious, is your trip to Stockholm for business or pleasure? And if for vacation, what prompted you to go to Sweden?

    Malin – I saw the Tree Hotel in Harads and knew I HAD to go. :)

    Heh, I actually had to google the tree hotel, but I recognized it immediately when I saw it. We have a couple of weird hotels for some reason, there’s also the Ice hotel way up north.

    I hope you’re having/had a good stay!

    Tip #8: Find some stairs. Run up, walk down, repeat, varying intensity and pattern (for example, take the stairs 2 at a time) as desired. This is especially awesome if you are staying in a skyscraper hotel.

    Tip #9: Bring your own sharp knife, cutlery, and plate/bowl. It’s so much easier to eat delicious fresh food when you can cut it up easily.
