Next week we’ll be heading to Stockholm for a little early birthday celebration. We are really excited but a little bit overwhelmed / anxious at the same time. As usual. So much to see, so little time. For me, this state is the epitome of FOMO: Are we missing the best restaurants? Which museums do we visit? Is there any wonderful place that we just don’t know about? Where do the locals hang out?
Nowadays, planning a trip can be tricky: there’s so much information out there! And that sometimes paralyses us. I’m not talking about booking flights or finding the best hotels. That’s the easiest part. What we find tremendously difficult is the next step. Deciding what to do, where to go or where to eat (this particular issue is very important! ;) to make the most of our experience. Besides, we also try to find the best spots to take pictures, the coolest establishments in town and, all in all, the best content for the blog. It can be quite intimidating.
We love travel books, so that’s our main source of information. Of course we also check other blogs, online magazines and our travel bible: Conde Nast Traveller.
Most of the time we end up forgetting everything and, once in our destination, we walk aimlessly, we try to discover little nice restaurants by chance, and we spend a fair amount of time enjoing whichever hotel we’re staying at. The slow pace way.
