So I’m flying into Oslo, checking out Gothenburg, going to Copenhagen, visiting Hamburg, making a stop at Cologne then Amsterdam… you see this is all a geographically sound journey? Why? Because the journey runs from North to South, getting ever closer to Amsterdam:
It all looks something like that. Now, see where Stockholm is situated? Yes. The East Coast of Sweden. If I were to say, go from Oslo to Stockholm, I’d either have to fly, or take a train to Gothenburg first then go. However, given I only have 20 days to do things, Stockholm has become too out of my way to see on this trip. Not only that, even if I was to spend the extra $100 to get there by train, I’d have to look for a place to stay and Stockholm, while a gorgeous city that I absolutely love, budget stays are notoriously hard to come by. In fact, from experience, staying at the city center and trying to stick to budget is pretty much impossible with comfort and quality in mind. So alas, I won’t be in Stockholm this year given that it’s not cost effective. But, of course, there’s always next year!
