Anything interesting in Stockholm?

Post by Mr. Choo-Choo » Wed Jan 04, 2012 7:06 pm

My stepson is currently in Stockholm till January 22nd, and I was wondering if anyone here knows if there is any interesting or inexpensive shave cream or soap to be had in the local drugstores there. Florena? Speick? Palmolive? Sven's Super Shave Cream? Girl with Dragon Tattoo badass shaving soap? Stuff like that. If anyone has any knowledge on this please feel free to share. Thanks!

Palmolive Classic cream and the sticks are about all you can find in Sweden. Unfortunately, this country is almost empty of any traditional wetshaving stuff. :(

Remember: this is all just wasted time and lives talking nonsense to strangers about pieces of metal, hair and chemical compounds.

Hmmm -- I was thinking the city sites and magnificent archipelago which makes Stockholm a very interesting and most attractive city. Seriously I was! 8)

Kristina H. Red hair, about 5 ft-8, could ski like a maniac in Austria, where I met her. In Stockholm the number was 766_---3, but I doubt that number is still good. She's probably not as good looking as she was back, then, but then again neither am I.

Worked there for a while. Beautiful city but ruinously expensive. And the food was so awful I ended up being like one of those ghastly American tourists permanently scouring the streets for a pizza place.

The Vasa Museum is my top recommendation for a visit.
