An early start with a slight mad rush to get into the taxi for the airport, but we made it scratch card in hand.
Today was our surprise trip. We had booked through srprs.me a trip for new year and this was the moment we had been waiting for to find out where we were going…..
The countdown reached the end and I scratched the card to enter the code and get the destination.
Stockholm!!!! So exciting and before long we were on the plane, on the way to our new year location.
We landed, got on the train to central, walked to our hotel and checked in. I then snuck in a sneaky nap.
Srprs.me had booked us table reservations to enjoy a lovely local meal. I swear it was the best rib eye steak I think I’ve ever had. I ate so much food I needed to be rolled back to the hotel!
After a rest up we got on to the train to Zinkensdamm for the walk up to Skinnarviksberget, the highest point in Stockholm, to enjoy the fireworks and boy was it impressive. The atmosphere was great with everyone counting down and ‘oohing’ and ‘ahhing’. For a change I actually enjoyed fireworks!
After welcoming 2018 we headed back to the hotel to chill out and wish everyone we loved a good one.
Happy New Year!
