A weekend in Stockholm, part tre

Sunday meant gloomy weather, but we went out sailing anyway. Stockholm is situated in a cluster of islands called Skärgården, and after just 10 minutes on a boat means being in beautiful nature with tiny islands inhabited by those neat wooden houses. It both snowed, rained and shined during our trip to the island of Vaxholm, but it was a pretty great day nonetheless.
We had breakfast at Fabrique in Fridhelmsplan, a pretty good chain of bakeries. Again, we were powerless to the cardamom buns...
How idyllic can it be?!
I felt like walking directly into Astrid Lindgren's universe.
We quickly found our way down to the sweet Hembygdsgården where we had salmon treats outside to the sound of water licking the side of the house, and kids running around in the garden.
Afterwards, it was the big Swedish cake table (notice that huge layer cake!)
Model Chris.
Welcome!
On the way back to Stockholm, the sun was with us most of the time, which made a huge difference. What a great trip!

De her indlæg minder mig altid om det evige spørgmål, hvorfor har jeg endnu ikke været i Sverige (og for den sags skyld Norge)?!

Rigtig skønne billeder. Elsker hvordan du altid får taget en masse billeder af byens helt almindelige bygninger og gader - noget som jeg altid glemmer men egentlig gerne selv vil blive bedre til. Det er jo trods alt de omgivelser, der udgør en stor del af de indtryk, som man får med sig fra en ny by :)

Vaxholm! I had the nicest day out there once. Everything is so charming and colourful. Honestly though, I should stop reading your blog, it makes me depressed to live on the other side of the world, ha!

Michelle; Nej afsted med dig til det nordlige! Jeg har heller ikke været der nok, har f.eks. aldrig været i Oslo... Det er jo skønt med Skandinavien! Og tusind tak for rosen, er da glad, hvis jeg kan inspirere dig til at få foreviget de små ting, der gør en by :)

Becca; Love!

Ellie; Yes, it's a great island - and the trip out there!
Haha, thanks I guess :) Come visit, though!
