The days in are long. We walked the Old town up and down, went to , took pictures of all the animals, more walking, went to hotel, changed shoes, went on a "Ghost Tour" in the evening, more walking, but we finally got a table for two at Fem Små Hus and had an excellent dinner. Tomorrow, I just want to look at the sea, listen to the sea gulls and write Sindarin poetry. But where? ? Or something smaller? Within reasonable travel distaince?

@kensanata I understand you have seen Vasamuseet already? If not, it is an absolute must.

For ultimate tranquility, visit Lidingö. You can take a ridiculously long funny tram trip from Ropsten (if you have time)

The place you are looking for is

Gåshaga brygga

You can also get there (might be faster) by boat, but I never did this.

@kensanata ( I think I also walked the bridge and visited upscale residential district around Millesgården i - and take the tram (Lidingöbanan) from there.

@kensanata I you want sea winds in your face, I highly recommend taking the boat from Nybroplan to Lidingö or maybe just Nacka strand (but Nacka Strand -- Lidingö has the highest sea gull and wind count). Your normal SL travel card is valid for it.

If you're lucky you get the very cool battery-fueled electric boat.

You can take the same boat all the way back, or you can get off at Saltsjöqvarn, walk to Hammarby sjöstad (a nice place to see) and have lunch/dinner there, and then take Tvärbanan back to Gullmarsplan (Or all the way to Solna if you're really into riding the tram. The segment crossing Essingen is a real treat to the sightseeing eye.)
@kensanata (the electric boat doesn't go to Lidingö, it only takes the departures that end at Nacka Strand or Saltsjöqvarn)

We checked all the recommendations we got but then we decided to go to instead. It seemed to promise a bath in the sea and lying on warm rocks in the shade and most importantly of all, calm dolce far niente. And it was a success! Dinner at Tennstopet was also good. Tomorrow, museums, I guess. ABBA and Vasa are the ones on my list. Anything we should definitely do instead of those two? Tomorrow will be the last day in , . Sunday we're back in Switzerland.

@kensanata I went to Skansen and found it very nice!

@Eidon We went for the nordic animals and weren't disappointed. Hadn't seen wolverine, wisent, elk and reindeer before. 👍

@Eidon @kensanata You better have gone to the old hanging hill Alex... just saying. You will not regret it

@kensanata galgberget and Sista Styverns Trappor is the one to go to.

I could show you a google streetview but it would ruin the awesomeness of it.

@ohyran Right, Sista Styverns Trappor! I remembered it as the nicest view. Will make sure to take a look tomorrow.
