REPORTED BY Marco Velardi, 28, December 2010

Snow and ice have been blocking travel endlessly for a good part of December, and, while getting ready to head into the Alps to spend the rest of the week, with luckily no planes involved, I wanted to wish everyone a great start of the new year with this view from a beautiful place I really enjoyed staying at (thanks Eero!) while in Stockholm a couple of weeks ago. It’s right on Skeppsholmen‘s island and I can already imagine how good it must be during the long Swedish summer, can’t wait to be back!
