Summer trip to Stockholm! (July sometime)

  • July 18, 2013 · 8:00 PM

Stockholm is not only a beautiful and fun city, it is also one of the vegan capitals of Europe! I was there last summer for 2 days, and just loved it! Canoeing in the river, checking out palaces and museums, and also enjoying such amazing food. There is so much more to do there, including visiting the archipelago, cycling, swimming, etc. which I didn't have time for.

And did you know that you can get VEGAN hotdogs at 7-11 stores????

Check out the following links:

I am putting together a vegan trip (4-5 days) to Stockholm. Let me know if you are interested and then we can set some concrete dates, and book tickets and hotels cheap!

p.s. if you are a Swede or know the city and would like to show us around, please join!!! :)

    Hi Sen, Is this trip still on and available for sign up? I am from Singapore and in Eindhoven currently visiting a friend.

      Hi Sutha, Cool! I'm from Singapore too! Yes, the event is still on and you can sign-up. Unfortunately, we booked our tickets and hotel rooms long time ago! You are free to join us, however that would mean that you have to book your own tickets and hotel room/accommodation.

    Hey where will we stay during those nights? or is everyone supposed to just find their own accommodation? And why not helsinki? why stockholm? ;)

      Hi Abyy! We will be staying in a hotel. So far, only 4 people are confirmed. We have two rooms, one for the boys (Sen and my friend) and one for the girls (Maria and Rhiannon). If you would like to join, perhaps you can stay with Maria and Rhiannon if they are ok with it. If you are interested, send me or Rhiannon a personal message via meetup and lets figure it out! Would be great if you could join as well!

      We chose Stockholm because it is one of the most vegan friendly cities in Europe! And it is really beautiful too! :)

    Good suggestion! I didn't know Stockholm was such a good place for veggies and vegans! If it's after 1st of July I am able to join in.

    Dear all, I got responses from 5 people. So here is the plan. The trip will be from Thursday, Jul 18 to Monday, Jul 22. We can take KLM which has good timings (can save one night hotel) €154 at the moment for return ticket. AMS - Stockholm
    > 06:50, Thur July 18 (arrival at 08:50)
    Stockholm - AMS
    > 19:55, Mon July 22 (Arrival at 21:55)

    The people who responded are:
    Sen, Rene, Rhiannon, Daphne, Maria

    If you are all OK with this, let's book soon. For the hotel, the guys share one room, and the girls another room? I suggest the following hotel which is in the city: http://www.scandichotels.com/Ho...­

    This costs ~€400/room/~4 nights. So if 2 people share, it would be ~€200/person for the whole trip. Is this OK with everyone? Can you please send me a personal message with your email and phone number so that we can coordinate this offline?

    Dear all, Can you kindly send me an email/message indicating which dates in July you can make for the Stockholm trip? I will then put everyone's availability together and select the date that works best for most people. Stockholm is a really awesome city, so I hope you will try to keep you schedules as open as possible and provide several dates! Check out some of the cool stuff we can do at: http://www.visitstockholm.com­

    Please send me the dates by Sunday evening (May 12).

    Thank you,
    Sen

    Hi everyone!!!

    I have set the date for the trip. To save some money, I suggest that we leave on a Tuesday night (July 23, 2013) after work on Norwegian airlines (budget flight) and come back on a Monday (July 29, 2013) night. It will be 6 nights and 6 days. If these dates work for you, please send me an email. I will then set up google docs for the planning. We can then share hotel rooms (or you can stay alone if you prefer). If anyone wants to help me with the planning, that would be greatly appreciated! I am swamped at work. Please confirm before this Thursday so that we can book tickets and hotel room soon to save money! If needed, I will setup a planning evening at my place later to organize the full trip.

    Looking forward to the awesome trip! :)

    Cheers,
    Sendhuran

      Hi Sen, thanks for your reaction. Unfortunately these dates do not fit my agenda, I can only join if it is between 7th to 21st of July, the rest of July I have to work! Are you going to wait for other's reactions to set the final date in a way that most people could join, or is it a fixed date?! + I also agree with you on leaving/returning in the middle of the week, it usually reduces the cost, however like Paloma, I guess I will also join for 4 days, 6 days would be a little bit too long/expensive for a city trip for me.

      Hi I'm still not sure I could join but anyway don't book a flight for me since I'd be coming from belgium and maybe by train :)

  • Maria

    Hello everyone Are you guys going to confirm this trip at some point?!
    I just wanna know whether or not my schedule fits you. Also, if we wanna travel by plane, we need to book the ticket, we only have a couple of weeks left.

    I've never been in Scandinavia and love to visit it. My work schedule is not very predictable, for now I can join if it's at 2nd or 3rd week of July.
