Travel Nostalgia – Stockholm

As mentioned in this post, G & I spent the weekend (more like a day) in Stockholm after his training in Oslo. We arrived in Stockholm on Friday night and after we got the keys to the apartment that we rented through AirBnB, we went grocery shopping for food for the weekend. Traveling in Scandinavia is expensive and we tried to be as frugal as possible. (WARNING: Picture heavy post!)

Saturday was the only day we had to do any sight-seeing and here are some pics to share.

We departed on Sunday morning back to DC and that was the end of our Scandinavia trip. It was beautiful albeit a short vacation but it was much welcomed and rejuvenating. Now only few more weeks till my Fall vacation with my family!
