I have been a couple of times to Amsterdam but it was always at the airport. This time, we took the time to spend a week in Amsterdam.
It is a really cool city, Buildings are super tiny and high. It was super warm, for April so it was really good! After, I will be honest it is not my favorite city, it is a cool city to visit but I would not live there! It is super touristic.
- Mossel & Gin: The name of this restaurant says everything! It was extremely good!
- Try the Waffel with ice creams
Walk through the city, you will see so much more!
I have been two times to Copenhagen, it is only 300kms so approx. 3h/4h by train from Linköping (they don’t have fast train yet...)
We stayed on Airbnb (cheap, well located, with bikes)
Day 1 : We arrived around lunch time and we went to Nyhavn to have lunch and try the famous Smørrebrød (sandwich basically), it was really warm and we decided to walk in the center close to the sea. We had an ice cream to Vaffelbageriet
Day 2: Brunch at café G, and we bike all day to visit the little mermaid, different churches, parks and I even swam in the harbor! Too warm! We looked like 2 tomatoes at the end of the day.
Day 3: We visited parks, had a brunch and it was time to go home!
I have done a little trip in Russia in 2015 and I went with OPEN RUSSIA. It is cheap and it is really good to go with a guide in Russia because otherwise I will not be able to see everything I did I think.. and they don’t speak English, so it is a little bit more complicated.
I left Stockholm by boat to go to Helsinki for a day and then took the boat again and arrived in St Petersburg. The point to go by boat is that you don’t need any visa if you are only staying 72hours.
We visited lots of things and it is was super tiring but worth it to do.
- Hermitage Museum
- St Isaac Cathedral
- St Catherine Palace
- Kazan Cathedral
- Church of the Savior on Blood > the best to me
Everything is WONDERFUL and really different from Europe country but I strongly recommend you to go with a guide
