Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and is spread across 14 islands. While there, I stayed at my third AirBNB place – this one a few metro stops from the Central Station and near plenty of things to do. I toured the Stockholm Cathedral, which was built in the mid 1200’s, and I lit a candle in memory of my wife and parents. I went to the Alfred Nobel Museum and spent a day ambling through the stone streets of Gamla Stan (old town). The modern sections of Stockholm appeared to have been built in intricate well-planned layers with sprawling undergrounds filled with shopping centers, metro terminals and eateries. At times it seemed little was happening, and I’d go down a flight or two, and there would be hundreds of people rushing about. Before my time in Stockholm ended, I donned a parka and headed to the Ice Bar, a unique place, where the walls, bar, seats, and even the glasses were made of Swedish ice.
