Stockholm as one of the best travel destinations

My feeling that Stockholm has been getting a lot more exciting in the past couple of years seems to be not so totally off the mark.

Worldwide travel guides such as Lonely Planet and Rough Guide pick Stockholm as one of the top 10 destinations this year. Lesser-known but more trend-conscious city guides such as Shift City Guide and Nectar & Pulse fail to miss Stockholm among their list of cities.

Perhaps I made a good decision to stay in Stockholm rather than running away after the first few years of dismal life (as you can tell if you read the previous posts on this blog). :)

And a couple of more discoveries in Stockholm: this time design shops in SoFo: Manos and Kiki. Both are on Renstiernas Gata, the street running north-to-south on the eastern part of Södermalm. I personally believe that SoFo, the bohemian district of Stockholm, is way too much overrated, but these two shops deserve such a hype.
