We are back from Stockholm! Lets just say this trip was full of learning experiences and the cold! We flew out Friday morning, leaving the house at 4:30am to drive to the airport. We get to the Memmingen airport, which they like to claim is Munich. That's a big ole lie! it's definitely an hour west of Munich. We already knew it was that far but it's a tiny airport in the middle of nowhere. We got there with plenty of time to spare which is good because it took us a while to figure out where to park. We then had to check in. In the states they have machines where you put in your info and it prints out your boarding pass or you go to the check in counter and they print it for you or scan it from your phone. Well none of these options were available at this place and the company we flew with, Ryanair, knows how to rip people off. Since we didn't have the piece of paper with our boarding pass they had to charge us a printing fee. Printing fee of 60 euro a person!! They told us they needed the paper so they could rip off the end of it. Are you kidding me?? We had no other choice but to pay for it, so there goes 120 euro. We then proceeded to wait in line for about 20 minutes waiting for the people in front of us to count their coins (I don't know what for). In the end they didn't even print anything!!! The charged us then hand wrote the info down. Ugh, so ridiculous!! We get on the flight, fall asleep and next thing we're in Stockholm, or so this airport likes to claim. We were actually 1.5 hours outside the city and had to pay for a bus. At this point we were paying in the Swedish Krona, so converted it was 32 dollars. We finally get to the city and walk forever to our hotel, it took about 20 minutes. We then went back to the city center and explored a little, had dinner that cost way more than we wanted it to. I believe dinner was around 60 dollars and they weren't even full meals. What they had available on their menu was only their starters!! We walked around some more, freezing cold enjoying the old city.
