Gamla Stan

Stockholm adventures continued…

Ah, twilight. The very best time of day.

I left off just as the girls and I were wrapping up our Gamla stan wanderings.

(Can we take a moment and appreciate how modest this storefront is? Probably the best souvenir shop in town, but they’re not 100% sure. How’s that for honesty?)

Fun fact: Sweden sells all of their wine/beer/liquor in special alcohol-only stores. Which means you can’t buy alcohol ANYWHERE else besides these stores. Not at grocery stores, convenience stores… nowhere but the specialty alcohol shops. And now you know!
