#3, Angelica Z:

“Visit Swedens first town!”

 
Swedish word or phrase you must learn:

Beroende 

means ”addict”

 

Swedish food you must try:

Kalles kaviar – fish eggs (not because you’ll like it, but because you’re not a sissy)

 

Best thing to do in Stockholm:

Stroll along Monteliusvägen at Södermalm to get a nice view of Stockholm. Sit down for a picknick at Skinnarviksberget and enjoy the Stockholm skyline. Very close by there’s also a CA meeting at noon every day!

 

The number one spot in Sweden you can’t miss while here:

Only 20 min away from the convention you’ll find Sigtuna – a small beautiful town! Rent a car and travel north. Stop for a swim and work on your tan at Steningebadet, then go for a yummy barbecue buffé lunch at Steninge slott (where you can also visit a couple of cool hunting stores if you’re into hunting, or some nice interior design stores if you’re into interior design). Finish your visit in Sigtuna town by strolling the picturesque street Stora Gatan in Swedens first town, founded in 970. Don’t miss the ruins of the Medieval churches.

#4, Aziz D:

“Got to try the real Swedish meatballs!”

 
Swedish word or phrase you must learn:

Hej, hur mår du?

means ”Hi, how are you?”

 

Swedish food you must try:

Real Swedish meatballs either at Riche, Hotel Diplomat or Sturehof. Best in Town.

 

Best thing to do in Stockholm:

Tough choice, either take the boat from Nybroplan to Fjäderholmarna take a stroll on this small Island that will give you to the archipelago vibe but close to the city. Boat ride takes about 15–20 min and cost US$30 back-and-forth. Or take a walk around Djurgården.

 

The number one spot in Sweden you can’t miss while here:

The one spot you can't miss (other than ”CAWS 2019 – Stockholm Syndrome”) is either take the boat ride to Fjäderholmarna or visit the Vasa Museum – it’s amazing.
