Can you believe there are only a handful of countries I am yet to explore in Europe and perhaps even more unbelievable (especially to me), was the fact that I had never been to Sweden! Earlier this year I visited Northern Europe for the first time, spending a few days in Copenhagen, Denmark. I loved it so much that I started to research more places to visit in the North and have since been back to explore 3 regions in Finland (Helsinki, Lapland and Savonlinna).
Now that I’ve spent 4 nights in Stockholm Sweden, I have my sights set on visiting Norway in the new year… plus coming back to explore more of Sweden, Denmark and Finland. But for my first time in Sweden, I couldn’t have been more excited to be just passing through in my Reefs. Here’s a little more insight into my 4 days in Stockholm….
For my first ever visit to Sweden, I was able to squeeze in a jam-packed itinerary for my 4 days / 3 nights stay. I was in town with the Visit Stockholm Tourism Board and will be sharing my top tips for Stockholm over the next few days (be sure to check back daily or follow WOW on Bloglovin’ to stay updated!!).
We had a lot of walking to do over the few days, so I was pretty chuffed to have received my new season Reefs a few days prior to leaving Berlin, just in time to shoot a streetstyle article in Stockholm. As we’re now in the cooler months in the Northern Hemisphere, my picks for this season were mainly boots (pictured: Reef Compassing) and a couple of casual flats to wear for short outings. However in Stockholm it was incredibly cold already at this time of year so I stuck to my boots for the most part!
3 days in Stockholm
On day 1 we landed, checked-in to our hotel, and rushed off to make the most of our first day in Stockholm. For those of you who don’t follow my updates on Youtube, the ‘we’ I am referring to is revealed in this video. Afterwards we wandered through the old town, sipped on delicious hot chocolate, ate all of the sweet treats we could consume for a sugar hit to keep us going, and finally made our way to Miss Voon for an outrageously good dinner.
On day 2 we were scheduled back-to-back with an exciting itinerary – just the way I like it when I only have a few days in a new city! In tomorrow’s blog post I will reveal many of the activities we enjoyed on this day and outline the Top 10 Things to Do in Stockholm.
Day 3 was a day to meet with a Swedish entrepreneur in Sofo, Stockholm’s design district, followed by shooting in the afternoon and a few meetings later in the day. Before we knew it it was time to pack our bags and get ready to fly out the next day to Prague!
World of Wanderlust is a proud ambassador of Reef shoes and this trip was possible with thanks to the Visit Stockholm Tourism Board – my opinion is as always my own.
