"Going back" Stockholm by iaint

in the beginning

I visited several times in the 90s, because my ex had friends there.

We enjoyed those trips - liked the people and the city. It was expensive then, but still worth it.

We stayed with the friends once (Södra Jordbro), and in hotels the other times.

I remember seeing the Vasa Museum, and went down the water on a steamer to Vaxholm.

Why go back?

My son loves his ice hockey, and in 2004 the NHL players were on strike.

Most Swedes went back to play for Swedish clubs, so you could see mega stars almost locally.

We saw Djurgården play MODO in front of over 13,000 on a Tuesday night. It was exciting too - Djurgården won in extra time.

We also went to Södertälje (SW of city) to see them play Timrå.

and back again?

In June '10 I was badly needing a brief escape from work, and grabbed a cheap flight with Norwegian.

Loved it. Relaxed and enjoyed myself. Just 48 hours but very welcome.

I'd go back any time.
