The moment we arrived in Stockholm we had to fork over what we considered a considerable amount for return bus tickets to and from the airport. The bus took 45 minutes and set us back 215 SEK each for a round trip! You can grab these tickets just next to where you collect your luggage. You will see lots of ticket machines for either the train (which takes half the time but double the cost) and also the coach.
Don’t get me wrong, Australia is a place very close to my heart and is unique in it’s own way. But there is something about Europe which draws me back to this side of the world. Maybe the long and lavish history. The glorious architecture, maybe. Or just because it’s a continent I have come to know so well during my childhood.
After eventually finding our boat, we headed back towards the old town with meatballs on the brain!We couldn’t come to Sweden for one day and not divulge in one of the country’s most popular dishes. It set us back 125 SEK each which I can guarantee were tourist prices, but damn they were tasty!
So, after 24 hours with very little money, here is a full break down of our costs (prices per person unless otherwise stated):
Food and drink
Meatballs, potatoes and salad 125 SEK
Cafe Sten Sture:
Goulash Soup with bread 85 SEK
Salmon and prawns with potatoes and creamy sauce 160-180 SEK
Pizza with ham and mushrooms; claimed to be better than Italy. 85 SEK
Hot dog from a food stall 17 SEK
Free continental breakfast
Free Nature Valley Oat & Chocolate Bar X 4
Drinks: Beer ranged from 29 - 63 SEK
Coffee: 41 SEK
Evian Water: 25 SEK
Airport transfer 215 SEK RETURN (EACH)
Metro from boat to Central station 36 SEK
Log Inn Hotel 600 SEK (Based on two sharing, 300 SEK each)
There are many options available when you think about filling your days with museums, galleries and long walks. Unfortunately, we had no time to see any of the paid attractions but saw some amazing sights by simply wandering the city and also sneaked in a free attraction.
Grand total: 1,830 SEK = 915 SEK each! (£71.80 each)
