Trip date: June 2017
I was up early to catch the Cinderella ferry to the farthest of the islands in the Stockholm Archipelago. I arrived about 30 minutes before the departure time and got a window seat, a cup of coffee, and a cardamon bun. It was a gorgeous day for a boat ride!
When researching my trip to Stockholm I became absolutely obsessed with visiting the islands. They say there are about 30,000, some barely a rock, others quite large, and many are connected to the mainland by bridge (what's the fun in that?). Only 200 of the islands are actually inhabited and on those they are mainly made up of summer homes.
So I finally decided to take one ferry to Sandön, the farthest island east, while enjoying the view of a bunch of adorable islands during the 2-hour ferry trip. I was very happy with my decision!
I arrived in the harbor town of Sandhamn just in time for lunch and made my way from the dock to Sandhamns Vardshus- a guesthouse, restaurant, and pub. I had such a delicious lunch in the pub; 3 different preparations of herring, local cheeses, and buttery new potatoes all with a view of the harbor.
Dykarbaren cafe for a glass of rosé and waited out the short rain shower.
