53:365 Welcome to Stockholm...and Welcome to Sweden!
Feb 15th 2010 Yey! After 3 months of so in the planning we arrived in Stockholm to start our Swedish adventure. Paul and arrived around 2pm and Susie and Stephen followed at 4pm. As we walked through Terminal 5 to the baggage collection we came across this poster stretched across a wall welcoming us to Stockholm. Fortunately there were some baggage trolleys opposite so after some trial and error I managed to get this slightly wonky self portrait. Paul has taken some more off both of us but I was determined to take one of myself. Inside the baggage hall was an impressive display of celebrities welcoming visitors to Stockholm. Some we didn't know, but we did spot a few we knew and Paul took my photo with a couple of my favourites - Roxette and Abba. Predictable I know but :-) We collected our bags and went to get the bus that was going to take us to our hotel for the night. We were staying near the airport at the Quality Hotel. Chose here because it was cheap enough, provided breakfast and meant a quick hop back to the airport the following morning. We hit the outdoors and it was FREEZING! Far colder than home and the snow was thick on the ground. Fortunately I had proper walking boots on plus a ski jacket and warm under clothes. Standing around for 20 mins waiting for the bus was a very cold experience! Finally caught the bus to the hotel. Nice inside and room was adequate. Paul and I had a bit of time before the others arrived from Ireland. We were really hungry and had spotted a McDonalds so we wandered over. Yes, I know. We go to another country and the first thing we eat is Maccy D's! Ordered some food and everyone spoke fluent English, totally unaccented which was a slightly strange experience. I managed a "Tack" (thank you in Swedish) but as usual us Brits let the side down in the language stakes! Outside McDonalds we posed with some signs. We were being utterly childish but if you read the word in English it meant something totally different to the Swedish meaning. Any Swedes - we aren't being disrespectful. Am sure the same happens in other languages! (photos to follow). Had a quick wander in the shopping centre attached to the hotel. Seemed strangely empty... Stephen and Susie arrived and of course they were hungry so again we headed back to McDonalds and discussed our plans for the evening. We were all slightly shocked that 2 meals cost ?12. Bit eye opening! Managed to put the same comment on Facebook to people back home. We got grief with people asking why we were in McDonalds! We discussed the cost of getting from the hotel to the centre of Stockholm. At the airport a taxi was quoted as ?50 each way. There were 4 of us so it was gonna be ?25 each. The alternative was the train or bus. The train was ?20 each way or the bus was similarly priced. The taxi was actually the cheapest option. Considering that Sweden appeared so eco-conscious (far more than UK or Ireland) were were suprised that the buses and trains were so expensive, especially for groups. We decided we wouldn't go into Stockholm. We had all got up really early, it was dark and we had no real idea of where we would go. We opted to eat in the hotel. Before heading to eat we went for an explore in the ICA supermarket. We wanted water, Susie needed some boots (we had already explored the Stadium sports store to no avail) and we all wanted a treat. Susie didn't find boots - she had some from Norway which were ok but she wasn't sure they'd be good enough. We did find chocolate. Photo to follow of what we found. We laughed. Sorry - yet again we were being childish! Some things just don't work in translation! We ate at the hotel - I had traditional Swedish meatballs, mashed potato, gherkins and beetroot with lingonberry sauce all for ?13. Ok so it was considerably more expensive than at Ikea but it was really nice. I think we slightly confused the guy serving us. Stephen had brought along a travelling Merecat (yes from the UK adverts!) and Paul and I had 3 extra stow-aways as well. The server was great and eventually he was amused and told us that the British sense of humour was good. Again, photos to follow. Went to bed relatively early because of flight to Kiruna in the Arctic Circle the following morning.

Making the most of it is all we can do right now. There are no flights and it's unlikely the SA navy is going to come and fetch us. However there's plenty to see and do. Viking graves, ancient churches, awesome food (although it's not cheap), free internet and best of all it's spring, so while it's cold at least it's sunny. I can recommend the university museum to anyone visiting, a treasure house of art and science and very well looked after. The bureaucracy works really well here. Imagine going to Home Affairs to sort out a problem with your passport and then they phone you as soon as you get home (just after 5pm) to let you know everything is sorted and they'll give you temporary residence and there will be no charge.
