Taking the Train from Stockholm to Copenhagen

When I decided that I would be attending the TBEX Conference in Stockholm, I knew I had to take a couple of days and make the trek down to Copenhagen. I had never been to Denmark before, and at the time, I didn’t know when I’d have the chance to come back, so it seemed like a now-or-never kind of thing. Or, maybe that’s just what I was telling myself to justify more travel.

Regardless, I knew Copenhagen had to be part of the itinerary.

On top of knowing I just had to visit Copenhagen, in my mind, there was only one way to get there: by train. I mean, why take a short 1h40min flight when you can take a five-hour train ride through the Swedish countryside?! Continue reading “Taking the Train from Stockholm to Copenhagen”

A Second Time in Stockholm

I had mixed emotions as we sat on the plane in Heathrow, waiting for the final leg of our journey that would take us to Stockholm. It was the first city I travelled to on my own; a city that had won my heart just four short years ago. And now, here I was on my way back. Would it still live up to the dream? Would my expectations hold true for the Swedish capital?

Long story short: Yes. Continue reading “A Second Time in Stockholm”

My Travel Bucket List: Stockholm

My Travel Bucket List Stockholm [PetiteAdventures.org]

Last week we took a break from the packing-cleaning-packing cycle that has become our lives in advance of our move and we travelled to Stockholm, Sweden so I could attend my first TBEX Conference.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to be back in Stockholm! My love for this beautiful Scandinavian city runs deep (which I’ve written about here and here) and I can’t wait to explore it further.

Although my time to explore the Swedish capital will be limited thanks to all the learnin’ I’m going to be doing at the Conference, I still plan to get out and see as much as possible. Some of the things on my bucket list are holdovers from last time and some are brand new. Either way, I know they will be amazing, because, well. Stockholm.

#Take12Trips Challenge Update

Petite Adventures' #Take 12 Trips Update

Earlier this year, I shared with you my intentions to take part in the #Take12Trip challenge and given that we’ve pretty much hit the half-way point in 2016 (sidebar: how are we already half-way through the year?!) I figure this was as good a time as any to check in and see where I’m at.

Before we get started, as a reminder, the #Take12Triips Challenge is designed to inspire travellers to make a commitment to getting out once and month and exploring – whether that’s day-trips, month-long adventures, or anything in between.

In my post, I described some of my dream trips for the months ahead. And, as with all the best-laid plans of mice and men, most of the months did not go as expected.

So, let’s take a look… Continue reading “#Take12Trips Challenge Update”
