Sweden, August 2018: Stockholm & The Archipelago Video Moments

As we have been recapping, in early August we decided to head to Sweden for the first time for a four day weekend. While basing ourselves in Nacka in the Stockholm Archipelago, we explored the surrounding islands scattered along the coast as well as making time to venture into the city. The trip was relaxing, low key, and quietly shuffled its way into one of our favorite places we have ever been. Sweden now holds a very special place in our hearts and we hope to make it back there many times throughout our lives!

Sweden, August 2018: The Stockholm Archipelago

Stockholm’s rocky, forested archipelago (which reminded us a lot of coastal Maine) is an enchanting escape from the city. We stayed in a cottage on the water in Nacka, only a 20-minute drive to the city but with the whole archipelago at our fingertips. Ferries abound in this part of the country, but you can cover a lot of area with a car thanks to an interconnected system of bridges.

Britt’s ancestry is quite mixed, but she’s always identified most with her Swedish and Irish roots. After visiting Ireland for the first time last year, we thought we’d round it out by visiting Sweden this time around. Stockholm’s rocky and forested archipelago was our main target, but we bookended our visit with days in Sweden’s pristine capital.
