Dreaming of Skeppsholmen…

We’re not fancy travellers. We almost always travel on a tight budget which means our flights are usually of the low-cost elbow-your-way-on-board variety and our hotels tend to be simple and functional and further away from tourist hot-spots. This is why I feel like we totally lucked out on our Stockholm trip. We managed to get an excellent deal on the design Hotel Skeppsholmen, located on the beautiful island of… well… Skeppsholmen! When we arrived, we decided to walk from Stockholm city station to the hotel and when I saw how quiet, picturesque and secluded Skeppsholmen was, I was convinced Jordan had somehow managed to get us lost. For those 4 days, it was our little paradise. Our mornings started with a stroll around the island, watching the boats and the surrounding city wake up, and our evenings were spent walking off the massive dinners in the crisp autumn air against the backdrop of the twinkling lights of the city. If you are planning a trip to Stockholm, I really recommend a wander around Skeppsholmen.

I miss it already!

  3. Beautiful! We travel on a strict budget too most of the time and we end up discovering beauty in unexpected places and people. I like the idea of being lost for 4 days.
