Hope I'm not dragging out our vacation pictures too long. I just found so many aspects inspiring and wanted to share. One of my favorite things in Stockholm was the tiny allotment gardens and cottages. We rented bikes and then set out to cover many different Stockholm neighborhoods. This area of Tantolunden has tiny garden plots and sheds that were originally issued to the industrial workers so they could have some rest and relaxation. I love the scale and how overgrown and natural they are. We followed a bike path all along the shore and stopped at this little cafe in a trailer for a coffee. We also stumbled across a traditional Swedish food festival called Smaklust which had tons of free samples of delicious foods. Ben tried some surströmming (fermented herring) which was a once in a lifetime experience! I knew better than to try that myself. The best part about biking around a city is that you can cover so much more ground than walking and happen upon amazing things!
