Stockholm, Sweden -- Day 1

Written by Human, Not by AI

We arrived in Stockholm at around 12:30 local time. Unfortunately I did doze off in the plane on our way here for about an hour, so I didn’t succeed in my original goal of not sleeping on they flight. I’m going to try and make up for it by staying up until 21:00 tonight.

Two of our bags took forever to come out, but we finally got them and found the train into Stockholm. We had gotten the wrong tickets (Hannah had a pensioner’s ticket) but the lady was nice and told us that both Hannah and I were free and that we should just ask for a refund once we got to the station in Stockholm. The guy at the station didn’t ask any questions and gave us the refund. It was a good introduction to Stockholm.

After checking in at the hotel, we went out into the town to try and find somewhere to eat. We were trying to find a restaurant with Swedish food, but royally failed. I think we would have found something if we were more awake. In the end we went to a Chinese buffet. The food was good, but the best part of the meal was watching mom try to stay awake. At once point, she dozed off to sleep (I think her brain turned off but here eyes didn’t close, I don’t know). She must have had some sort of a dream because she randomly said “Did you get the right meat?” which had nothing to do with any conversation we had been having. Maybe it isn’t very funny after writing it down, but it was hilarious when it happened, especially since we were all so tired, I think everything seemed funny.

After we got back, we wanted to go to sleep so badly, but it was only 15:00. Mom and I went back out to try and find a SIM card for a phone that we have. We did find one and came back to the hotel. It’s now 20:57, so I’m going to get ready to go to bed.
