A very accomplished friend and former Dell colleague of mine, Ang, was spending 7 weeks traveling around Europe before starting business school at Harvard, and she let me tag along for a stint.
We stayed at the City Backpackers Hostel near to the central train station. It was a great space where we met a bunch of cool people, and the hostel offers a few different types of tours as well. The first night we were there, we went to the Ice Bar with some random people from the hostel. It was cold but a bit kitschy for me. Can’t say I need to do that again.
Day 1: We went to the Stockholm Public Library (I know, I guess have a thing for libraries). Then Ang and I rented a kayak from Rålis Kayak and even though I still do not know how to kayak properly, we paddled for 2 hours around the Kungsholmen island. The guys running Rålis Kayak were really chill and nice, but this was the only place we encountered the whole time in Stockholm where we couldn’t pay with our credit cards.
