Picnic day in sunny Stockholm

A day spent out in the sun, breathing in some Scandinavian sea air, eating delicious food (Raw lasagna and green juice from Cleansing Days were heavenly). Then yoga, reading and a game of cards. When a couple in their eighties rolled out their picnic blanket next to us and took out a bottle of bubbles and strawberries it was official: We’d found The Good Life.

a cup of coffee in Gamla Stan

Strolling along the streets of Stockholm’s Gamla Stan, take a turn down one of the quiet alleyways and discover those small cafés that offer a perfect shelter from the summer rain. Rustic and simple in style, this café is actually the reception of a small hotel on Sven Vintappares Gränd; In the charming 17th century building it offers a silent haven for those who have exhausted their feet on the crowded cobblestone streets marveling at the many architectural styles, hot dog stands and souvenir shops of the old city. I would recommend to try the tea selection, since the coffee was as old and strong as the cool stone walls.
