Whether I'm looking for my new weekend sneakers, a raincoat, or just want to play dart in the basement, Grandpa is the place for me. They have thought of everything; when I treat myself in their store, I know my pocket money will disappear, but I know I'm leaving with a smile. And the smile follows me home and a long time after that. I know their products are fairly made, but the most important for me is the genuine feeling I always get from happy people in the crew. Big up Grandpa!
What I like about Stockholm is that I can't only pick one favourite place.
If I have to pick I would say that I love to spend hours at J.Lindeberg at Åhlens City. It's like coming home to your best friends with your favourite clothes, just catching up on life and fashion.
My other favourite place is Cloud Nine, great food and great service - love this place.
To stroll around the garden and sip on a coffee under the apple trees is my idea of recharging in Stockholm. The staff is friendly and I love how one can see their passion for biodynamic gardening, it's reflected in everything they do. Specially their food. The pastries at the bakery are nothing but delicious! It’s stunning to see the changes in colours shift from spring to summer and summer to autumn. This green spot is the perfect outing when I want to escape the city buzz.
My favorite spot of our city is the Hagaparken, located on the outskirts of Vasastan in the north of Stockholm. Here I go for the perfect run, a swim in the water or a long picnic with friends. Since a couple of years back the Crown Princess and her family lives here too, I sometimes pass by and visit the sheep the keep on their grounds. Fun Fact - Norrtullsgatan, that stretches out from Odenplan and all the way to Hagaparken is the first avenue ever in Stockholm.
My best place in Stockholm is Skansen. I think it's great to meet all the weird, fun, lovely animals - all sorts from perch to fjord horses. Skansen also has an aquarium where you can pet sharks ( I know! ) and say hi to their nude rats. Personally, I think the monkeys are the coolest, can watch them for hours. Once when I visited, I had a monkey on my shoulder. I am also a big fan of their endangered species efforts, we need more of that.
As much as I love Stockholm I love to travel and eat! This is the most genuine food market in Stockholm. Every time I walk through the doors I feel like I have left Sweden behind me. If I want good meat, sausages, cheese or fish this is the place to go. Staff is always very friendly and have lots of tips how to cook or prepare what you are eating. There is also plenty of fast-food joints and restaurants. In my opinion, they have the best kebab the city has to offer.
My favourite strip of land in Stockholm is in Södermalm, it stretches from Mariatorget till Hornstull in there I find everything I need to recharge my batteries from my favourite bars (Paradiso, Little Tong, Hommage, Haktet, Tjoget) to amazing street food and second-hand shops. I fell in love with that area when I first moved to Stockholm 4 years ago and still now that I don’t live or work there anymore Söder is my bizarre love triangle.
