It’s been 2-3 weeks since I came back from Stockholm, and I spent some of the last 2o-ish days going through the many photos taken, wondering what to press.
It’s kind of challenging to press about a one-month vacation spent in some 6 cities. Should I create a top 10 list of each cities, or should I upload top 10 fave photos? Or should I do it chronologically, or should I do it geographically? hmmmm…guess I will just go with the flow and press whatever comes to mind. So my first day in Stockholm went like this…
The path we have to take to get to and fro my brother’s hostel to the metro station – it cuts through the University of Stockholm. Still a pretty walk in the day in late Autumn, but can get really harsh in the winter night. Glad to have caught a bit of Autumn and Winter in Scandinavia – it’s kind of surreal to have leaves flying around me one day and then snow falling on me the very next day, to see a tree full of golden leaves on my first day and then barren on my last day.
Strong flavors, surprisingly! I had expected food that taste healthier – less salt, less sugar, less oil, less… Had a seafood stew (left) – needed some comfort food to help me adjust to the 30 degree-celsius difference!
After dinner we strolled around Stockholm Central, which I passes by almost everyday when I am in the city – it’s really the heart of Stockholm where the airport train/bus, inter-city train, shopping centers are, and within walking distance to many of the attractions! Picture on the left is taken at one of the shopping streets (yes, happy halloween! :)) and on the right is Sergels Torg, the most central public square in Stockholm.
PICTURE: I’M AFRAID YOU HAVE TO IMAGINE 😛
Last activity of the night: a free (tips are encouraged though) guided walking tour of Gamla Stan (the old town). For some reasons, I did not take any pictures. Probably due to jet-lag or I might have been trying to focus and orientate myself to the city which was to be my new home for a month…
