Let’s be honest. Booking a trip to Stockholm for March wasn’t my smartest travel decision this year when it comes to timing. Booking a trip to Stockholm in of itself was brilliant — the city seriously rocks. But the timing, not so much. Then seemingly out of nowhere, there was a warm day in Stockholm.

Arctic winds, slippery streets, and strategically planning walking routes between heated spaces was the name of the game. So finally, on that one glorious day in the city when it hit over 40 degrees, I couldn’t believe it. I was feeling so good, I even wore my cousin’s jean jacket over only a turtleneck.

The sun shined over Stockholm, illuminating the city to life. The ice glistened in the river, the streets were flooded with people, and even those majestic swans seemed to be having the time of their life — and we were too.

The day was unplanned minus a dinner reservation at Woodstockholm, a restaurant we had stalked out the night before. We had sit at the bar and watched endless plates soar out of the kitchen, even though are wallets were hurting from a long week in Copenhagen, we couldn’t resist. It was weird to have no purpose that day, but ultimately, to enjoy Stockholm’s idyllic scenery. The Baltic Sea surrounds each island, providing an almost coastal feel to the city. Consequently, the air is as fresh as one could hope for. A Warm Day in Stockholm: Photos & Snipbits

After a few hours of getting lost in Gamla Stan and a spontaneous pop into the Royal Palace, we had a warm lunch at Barobao. The day started to wind down, having walked as much as we could before the sun started to disappear. We were both reminded how sobering the cold air at night was. Retreating to Hotel Skeppsholmen where we were staying, closed out the day. It was a perfect warm day in Stockholm. A Warm Day in Stockholm: Photos & Snipbits

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!

These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.

1. Book Your Flights

I use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.

2. Book Your Accommodations

I use Booking.com for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.

3. Book Your Tours & Experiences

I use Viator or Get Your Guide to find the best tours and experiences. They are my favorite tour search engines. I always check both as their inventory varies depending on the destination.

4. Book Your Rental Car

Self-driving is the best way to explore most destinations. I use Discover Cars for our rental cars, select full coverage insurance, and opt for a reputable company like Alamo, Hertz, or Sixt.

5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access

I use Priority Pass to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.

6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance

I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.

My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
