We took a train from Copenhagen to Stockholm. The ride was beautiful and just as I expected. Rolling hills and farm houses. Horses and cows and lakes. Fields of flowers. It was definitely a ride to clear the mind.
Sweden was more of a work trip for me, but work in Sweden doesn't ever feel like work. We had a large conference down in a beautiful seaside town where we barbecued and danced on a dock till around midnight. The sun of course barely went down. We stayed at the Miss Clara Hotel in Stockholm. It was so beautiful. The rooms each had tall windows with a comfy little window seat.
I was also very excited to see my friend Katinka's store for the very first time in person. It is called.... Katinka's Store haha. There is a mix of second hand and local designer clothing. Her dog Zoe is the cutest pup. She just follows you around and when you go to try on shoes she'll hop in your lap. She is hysterical. I ended up purchasing these little wooden butterfly coasters that Katinka found at a local flea and these shoes that are made from recycled plastic and hemp. They are THE most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. Katinka is the sole distributer in Sweden and Denmark I believe. She has an online shop which is katinkasstore.com.
I of course had to visit the GANT Rugger store! They now have pour overs!! The coffee was delish but it unfortunately did not cure my hangover from the night before. The store was beautiful, as they always are.
We definitely partied hard in Stockholm and still managed to get a lot accomplished. My favorite night was when we got out of this club early early in the morning and saw the most beautiful crescent moon over the water. It was jaw dropping. As was the whole trip.
