Still revelling from my exciting win at Traverse last week, I was contacted the next day by my friend Steve (AKA @Biggsy321) telling me the good news was about to continue. He had won a holiday too… and was taking me with him. AND not just me, but 48 other friends.

Yes! Biggsy won the prize of a lifetime to Stockholm in Sweden.

To say I am excited would be an understatement, this is a trip of epic proportions and one that will no doubt be going down in Party Plane History (is there such a thing?) for years to come.

So what’s the plan on this exciting trip?

FIFTY of us will be flying in our very own private British Airways Plane from London City Airport to Stockholm on Thursday morning next week. We will be picked up at the airport and taken to the Clarion Sign Hotel for a two night stay in the city.

We will each receive a Visit Stockholm card to be able to visit so many of the wonderful sites that Stockholm has to offer and on the Friday morning we are taken by coach to the Abba Museum before flying back in ‘our’ plane on Saturday morning.

No doubt there will also be much laughter and many ‘dancing queens’ throughout the weekend and a lot less ‘money money money’ spent than a usual weekend away. Exciting!

I spent a weekend in Stockholm a couple of years ago and had a brilliant time, I can’t wait to return for a bowl of hot chocolate in a cute little cafe we found and enjoy the beautiful buildings, bars and restaurants Stockholm is brimming with.

Lets hope there is a little less snow than my last visit.

For once ‘The winner doesn’t take it all’ Steve got to share his amazing win with 49 friends… what a lucky guy, what a lucky group. Thanks in advance Steve for an amazing experience. I can’t wait!

Can anyone recommend any top spots in Stockholm we should visit? the best bars? an intriguing museum? Between the 50 of us I’m sure we can tick of most of what Stockholm has to offer.

Also on our plane will be Ari from Beyond Blighty, Dylan from The Travelling Editor and I even get to bring fabulous Phil along too 🙂
