Thetraveljunkie.org – Happiness begins at home. Traveling in Sweden has reconfirmed my belief that you don’t have to spend a lot to have a magical holiday. The Swedish summer holiday is about taking time out and going back to basics to enjoy the simple things in life – whether that’s simply hanging out at home or heading to a small, basic summer cottage by the sea or deep in the heart of the countryside, to enjoy reading, baking, bathing, board games, crafting or simply hanging out with friends and family and drinking in as much sunlight as possible before the autumn leaves start to fall.
Away is good but home is best. – Swedish proverb
When in Stockholm, I can highly recommend finding a small cottage or cabin in Södra Tantolundens koloniträdgårdsområde. It doesn’t have to be grand – in fact, the smaller and more basic the better. It only needs to be somewhere you can switch off and chill out.
Stay tuned for more of our adventures in Stockholm, Sweden.
Happy Sustainable Travels!
Since you’re here…
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the Travel Junkie than ever but advertising revenues across the blog are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our blogsm as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Travel Junkie’s independent, travel blogsm takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our blog posting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support The Travel Junkie – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
