It’s summer break and for a long time my friends and I have been planning trips here and there, but never had time to go through with them. So the other week we checked our schedules and booked it, Saturday to Sunday in Stockholm, and just like our last adventure that took place in the capital, this was not short on excitement.
The bus ride took what felt like forever, but in good company, we finally arrived after four and a half hours, around lunch time. After going back and forth around the city, we finally decided on a place to have lunch, which ended up to be Pizza Hut, and I must say that I was not impressed at all.
It took us a bit longer to find the hotel than we had expected, leading to us being late and missing our check in time, but all was well once we finally got through to the customer service. Since our hotel was located a bit outside of the central city, we didn’t see any point in traveling back into the city during the afternoon, instead we spent that time in a shopping mall around the area. I myself found a few clothing items and an outfit for the night, we also stored up on the hangover snacks that we knew from experience would be needed. We later got ready, playing music, dancing and drinking. As a pre-party in a hotel room would be.
Our first stop was to dinner, a bar and tapas place, which had an amazing energy to it, the vibe was in my senses grunge/hipsterish, in a good way though, on top of that the place was filled with gorgeous people. After a few hours of chatting with unwanted company and drinking pissy beer, we headed towards our next stop. Not to deny anything, being under 23 in the capital, we did not have a successful attempt at getting in at the first place we went to. However the next hours to come were spent going from pub to club and so on, until we found one (Musikaliska) we liked and stayed until closing. I wasn’t sure whether or not the music was actually good or if we were just enjoying dancing for the hell of it. Frequently visiting the bar, tequila after tequila went down with displeasure in hope to feel something, but the liquid tasted horrible and had the effect of plain water.
A lot of events took place that night, and after a few hours of back and forth we ended up at a rave in the middle of nowhere in the woods. Now I would be all up for trying a rave, but my friends and I were not dressed for the occasion, we looked like 3 lost city girl. So at 5 in the morning we were walking around in the woods with high heels and bare legs, surrounded by strange people. Getting there was probably the most excruciating part of the whole night, we had to walk about 2 km in high heels, with not only feet but legs that ached. However the night ended like all our trips to the main city, at a burger shack 15 minutes before closing, and luckily we got our order and headed back to the hotel where we ate our food and not long after that crashed into a long awaited slumber.
