Adventures in Stockholm

It’s hard to even begin because visiting Sweden was such an amazing experience. Everyday we had such a wonderful time and met lots of new, interesting, travel loving people. At first, we thought traveling with Couchsurfing could be either a complete disaster or an epic adventyre.  Luckily, it was the latter. With an alternative travel and lodging plan, Desi and I had the chance to meet so many new people and engage in more local activities.

Our first night in Stockholm we met up with our Couchsurfing host, Belinda, plus my Mom and a few of Belinda’s friends (who were also heading to the cabin in Dalarna with us).

Herman’s was the most incredible eating experience I’ve had in a while!
 It’s a combination of perfect location plus an unbelievable, gigantic vegetarian and vegan buffet. The kind of place that food coma dreams are made of. Herman's a Swedish smorgasbord complete with diverse salads, lasagna, creamy hummus, hearty breads and tasty deserts! I was immediately addicted and over the course of the next month, Desi and I ate there a total of FOUR times! Anytime chance we had to stop in Stockholm we had to pay homage to Herman’s!

Aside from the food, there is an amazing view of the harbor and it was just a short walk from Mom's hotel! Perfect!

Here we are unpacking/repacking for our midsummer trip at Belinda’s lovely house. She was one of our favorite people from the trip. A fun-loving, expert traveler! The first night there were four Couchsurfers crashing at her pad and another night she hosted 5 of us! Thanks Belinda!
