A Stockholm arrival, prison accomodations

Posted by Christopher Wink on Nov 1, 2008 in Experiences |

Sean and Chris stayed in the Langholmens Hotel and Hostel, a converted prison in Stockholm, Sweden.

Sean and Chris stayed in the Langholmens Hotel and Hostel, a converted prison in Stockholm, Sweden.

There were some serious doubts, but Sean and I made it to Stockholm, Sweden just before nine P.M. here, four in the afternoon for you East coasters. The only hostel in which we could find lodging happened to be a converted prison. Worth the additional cost for sure. …That and we had no other choice.

Yesterday back in Copenhagen, Denmark, where we found out - because of the popularity of the trip on weekends - we couldn’t get a train to Stockholm until Tuesday, which would seriously cramp our style.

So, we took the scenic tour: a six hour north to Gotberg, along the country’s beautiful Kattegatt bay inlet of the North Sea. Come for the views, stay for the cramped luggage room of an unreserved train ride.

From there we picked up the five hour train to Stockholm, arriving in the dark, still night of a wintry Stockholm November… without any place to stay.

Couchsurfing failed us. So we wandered a while in freezing weather - my little Seany is such a trooper - before stumbling upon the Lanholmens - a former prison converted to a cheery hostel. Oh, the death and torture is completely covered up in pastels, don’t worry.

Many more updates to come, I assure you.
