Stockholm Day 3

Valkommen to Globen City

And next you'll see the Globen Shopping.

Our destination - Skyview

Family picture up in Skyview

As well as individual pictures ♥♥

Wanted to have a more relaxing day today so we walk leisurely so as to not tire ourselves at the end of the day.

Took a tram to Slussen to have Herring fish recommended by Kim!

Stad Museum - just opposite the herring fish stall.

Nystekt Stromming
Just walk straight out from Slussen station and right ahead you'll see the stall. 

Stromming-Rulle for 65 Kronor
This is also highly recommended - MUST TRY, MUST EAT

Katarina Lift which is visible when you turn your head to the right upon exiting Slussen station.
Well, not much an attraction I would say. Skyview is far much better.

Below are some captures from up above.... 

Headed back to Gamla Stan and walk about the area. Most of which spend looking at chocolates and souvenir shopping.

Next is The Royal Palace. Uhm, yea, that's pretty much everything of a palace. Not one that I would say you have to go but if you're a fan of palace and what not, then do pop by then.

Iconic buildings which is widely published in tourist guide books and internet captured as The Old Town Gamla Stan. It's most known for it's archaic architecture, medieval alleyways and cobbled streets.
You'll definitely enjoy a walk round this area.

Went for lunch in Sally's restaurant along Vasterlanggatan. The one good thing I like about lunch in Stockholm is that you have free salad or bread (as much as you can fill) as well, I could say appetizer. And by the time the main meal comes, you're already full or probably half full. So it is very affordable and worth the money!

This is fish with some sort of curry with 4 mussels and is very delicious! Er, above average..

Steak style pork which is not bad but not the best. Well, better than the fish in my opinion. 

Nom nom nom nom nom nom...trying to finish off the mountain of bread I took.

And lollipop for 5 Kronor each. Slurrrps..

- Got worn off pretty quickly today plus there's nothing much more to do on out 'to-do-list' so went back to hostel and rest and chit-chat and play around -

Went back to Skyview in hope to see a different view at night but Ms Receptionist says, "You can only take the ride once with the Stockholm Card.".

FML. Went all the way there with hopes crashed to the snowy floor. So we just took pictures around with Skyview as the background.

First time seeing and taking this kinda lift! Excited and amusing.

That was pretty all we've done in Day 3 and we still drop dead to the sight of our beds. Eventually. =)
