What makes Stockholm so special? Proximity to nature and water.

The best part about being a foreigner in this city?! Being a novelty and being completely anonymous

The hardest  part about being a foreigner in this city?! Being anonymous and being generally less attractive than most people. 

We only have 24 hours in Stockholm, where should we go? Just grab a map and get lost, its a relatively small city and the best things are off the beaten track. Start walking around Södermalm then into Gamla Stan (Old Town) then head to Djurgården through the beautiful streets of Östermalm. After you are done walking, catch a boat back from Djurgården to Södermalm for a bite to eat at the traditional swedish restaurant 'Pelikan', and then head for drinks at Mosebacke with gorgeous views over the city below. 

Favorite coffee? Drop Coffee in Södermalm.

Best rooftop for sunset drinks? Mosebacke.

Favorite spot for cool new (men's) threads? Nitty Gritty.

Favorite summer activity/and where? Getting out of the city and heading to Småland in the south of Sweden with friends. Lots of beautiful lakes, lush forests and no technology to eat into your day. 

Favorite winter activity/and where? Getting somewhere warm.

Favorite weekend getaway outside of Stockholm? Rome.

Who is inspiring you right now? Nobody. 

Who is on your stereo? Bahamas, Strand of Oaks, Sharon Van Etten, Kevin Drew.

Words you live by…try not to sweat the small things in life.
