"Charming old town, quite walkable and incredibly expensive. Except for that last bit, Stockholm is a fun city."

We did quite a bit of walking when we went to Stockholm. The air was crisp and its relatively flat, and the old town in particular Gamla Stan is a great area to people watch as well as get your food on.  Like most of Scandanavia, Sweden is expensive. Liquor in particular, well set you back almost $20 USD at a bar. That said, there are plenty of free things to do and even nightlife-wise, you can find places playing live music with no cover.  It's probably no surprise nor misconception that Swedish people are fit and pretty good looking.  I found myself easy to communicate with other locals with just English.  As usual, I went during low season, so some stuff like the theme park that Stockholm is known for was closed. That said I still had fun, until I ran out of money.

Stockholm has a ton of bakeries. Although I didn't try every type of bread, what I did try was fresh.

This toilet looked like a time machine.

My local contact mentioned that the Ericcson Globe is sort of a tourist trap.

The Grona Lund Amusement Park is popular during the summer. It was winter when I was there so it was closed.

You can find live music of all sorts in Gamla Stan. This rock club was called Stampen.

I can't remember what this place was called but it offered traditional Swedish folk music.
