Traveling to Sweden was such an amazing experience. I departed from Des Moines, IA and traveled to Stockholm and Oskarshamn. I went with a group of classmates from Iowa State University in order to study abroad at KTH and Stockholm University.
Departed Des Moines Airport
Arrived at Arlanda Airport in Stockholm
Checked in to Zinkensdamm hostel
~1:00pm City Tour – Gamla Stan
Once we arrived at Arlanda, we used a bus service to drive us to Zinkensdamm hostel. I would highly recommend this hostel. The breakfast was so good and the restaurant was amazing. The hostel was located conveniently near the public transit. However, the hostel room was cramped and very small, so expect limited space. *Make sure you remember to double check your adapter for your electronics, the one I brought was an older version.* For dinner, there’s an Irish pub down the road that we went to. I tried lamb and it was amazing.

*Using the public transit system in Stockholm if fairly easy and the trains are clean compared to other large cities. However, with luggage, I recommend using a taxi or driver service. Since I was there for three weeks, I purchased a train pass. It was worth it!*
