Just back from a delightful time in the Nordic capital of Stockholm. A charming place, filled with delightful, friendly people—and despite the recent news of mass political —compared to the UK or the US, it was a model of harmony. Even when they disagree, the Swedes are polite and restrained about it.

What to do? The national library is an extraordinary building that provokes feelings of untethered bibliomania in visitors (at least this visitor). The Acne Archive is for those Acne Jeans enthusiasts who want to see the mothership in all its glory. The Fotografiska (museum of photography) is a great museum with an awesome book shop (with a one of a kind Guy Bourdin handmade book spotted here). It also has a restaurant on the roof with a rather amazing view of the harbor.

But, for those less intellectually inclined, I recommend the old town, and especially the endless tourist shops which seem to specialize in viking, hairy troll, reindeer and other assorted refrigerator magnets. Our friend Liz, who is deeply interested in such artifacts, rates it one of the best places on earth for scary tchochkes. September, with its slight chill in the evenings seems like the ideal month to visit. We stayed at the Hobo Hotel, nice, clean great food and wonderful staff. But if you want the full on hygge experience, stay at the extraordinary Ilse Crawford designed Ett Hem Hotel.
