Apparently there is a Thursday tradition of eating split pea soup and pancakes in Sweden. And by Thursday, it seems many people do this just about EVERY Thursday. A guy at the hostel had got a recommendation for a good place (and the lowdown on the tradition) so we headed over to try it.
Pretty good, first the soup (with side of sausage and ham):
And to go with it, pancakes…
Hi All, a catch-up post today, just wanted to share some pics from where I stayed in Stockholm. Like the other Scandinavian cities, Stockholm is quite expensive so hostels were my first choice. But as a somewhat unique opportunity, there are some hostels with rooms on ships. One of the earliest (or maybe the first?) is on the af Chapman.
You do have a choice of staying on the ship or in a building on shore. The hostel was pretty nice actually, with a nice buffet breakfast (though that was extra) and a nice little cafe (on shore) where you could sit outside and see the city and ship views.
