Hostel af Chapman at Skeppsholmen


I love using Airbnb to book places to stay internationally because I’m able to find gems in neighborhoods that I would otherwise overlook.  For the first leg of our stay in Stockholm, we stayed in a lovely little cottage in a lovely little neighborhood called Aspudden.  I get the impression that it’s considered a suburb, but our cottage was steps away from a subway station that took us to central Stockholm in about five minutes.

Aspudden is right next to this wonderful natural recreation area called Vinterviken, where I snapped these photos.  I loved looking across at the colorful houses on the water’s edge.  It seems like a perfect place to swim in the summer, but strolling through its trails along the water was reviving and calming on this chilly spring day.
