We spent the day in Akalla by (farm), this place takes you back in time. The red wooden houses bring so much character to the area. There is a playground, paddling pool, 4H farm with animals, (pony riding for kids) a café, a barbecue area, a dance floor, a mini-golf course and bicycles to rent (including children’s bicycles and trailers). There is a complete outdoor gym. There are so many activities here for everyone, most importantly it’s child friendly. I have been here before but this time we came for the pony riding. Unfortunately we came too late and ended up missing it, so we spent the day in the farm interacting with the animals. We ended the day in Bibbi house, a lebanese/moroccan restaurant. If you want to walk from Akalla by (farm) to Bibbi house , it’s possible, but a you’re in for a long walk. Ones there it is worth the walk, they have an amazing outdoor seating area and the food is great.
Today was no ordinary day, the temperature here in stockholm reached 31 celsius, and I am not complaining because I enjoy hot, sunny days. However it was one of the hotter days of the year, which Stockholm has been having plenty of lately. We wanted to spend the day relaxing at a poolside, eating, and doing pretty much nothing. We got off the train at kungstradgarden, the end station for the blue line, walked to slussen where we got on a boat heading towards Djurgarden. My kids loved the boat ride and i enjoyed it too, i truly recommend anyone wanting to visit Djurgarden to catch the boat, its an adventure you will remember. The scenery was amazing. Ones in Djurgarden, we went to this place called Josefina, its a Bar/ poolside/ restaurant type of place but its lovely and kids friendly too. We sat at the poolside, swam and ordered pizza. My kids asked me are we coming back tomorrow? We have to come back tomorrow again 🙂 Lets just say they had a great time.
We where too excited about the bread to remember to take picture of our dinner
Elias started off with a nice blue t-shirt
The proof is on the shirt 🙂
Welcome back Friends,
We spent the day in Kungsholmen walking along (smedsuddsbadet) at the beachside. It was 28 degrees, sunny and lovely and we, (me and my three kids) went for a dip in the water, for some well needed cooling down. We had an early dinner at 7 pm at a cosy french seaside restaurant called Boulebar, they had amazing food, and even my kids didn’t need much bribing or any convincing to finish their plates. Check it out if you enjoy french cuisine or not hahaha, I think you will find something to enjoy, if even just a drink and a nice view 🙂 Our day ended with a lovely walk along the pier, and what better way to enjoy the sunset than with an ice cream.
The day started very early, I went for a 30 min run in the morning. The kids wanted to go to the seaside in Edsviken, we had a relaxing day with a picnic near the water. I met the most lovely elderly couple, they were so friendly and we ended up having a really deep and meaningful conversation, about history, Germany, Sweden, life and everything in between. We exchanged contact details, i hope to meet them very soon. They had a dog which my kids loved and played with.
Hejsan alla vänner,
Vi vaknade tidigt, jag sprang 30 min innan frukost. Barnen ville gå till stranden ute pa Edsviken, vi hade en avkopplande dag med en picknick nära vattnet. Vi träffade otroligt snällt äldre par som var ute med deras hund, de var så vänliga och vi hade en skon och meningsfull konversation, om historia, Tyskland, Sverige, livet och allt däremellan. Vi bytte kontaktuppgifter, jag hoppas att vi kan träffa dem snart. De hade en hund (ante) som mina barn älskade och lekte med.
