the boy and i both loved stockholm – more than expected! and to love it in january certainly must mean we would looooove it in june! it was cold and grey but really beautiful and fun to explore. the boy got in a few hours before me so he was able to give me a few tips for my day of exploring while he was in meetings on wednesday.
^^ something i really like about stockholm is how many streets have cool lights hanging across them. ^^
^^ this shows a bit how snowy it was! ^^
okay, i am totally obsessed with gamla stan, stockholm’s old town. i ran through the cobblestoned streets in the morning and then came back to explore more and take pictures (and obviously i couldn’t stop!) around every corner there is another corner that looks so charming and alluring to peek around. i just love it – pictures don’t do the magic justice!
did you know that nobel prizes originated in and are given out from stockholm? i didn’t know! above ^^ is the nobel museum.
i watched the changing of the guard at the royal palace:
and then went inside to see the splendor:
^^ love this vermillion church. and look how snowy/icy the pathways to it are! ^^
i walked a lot that one day in stockholm. my feet and legs were aching so much by the time night fell (around 4pm!). i loved happening upon these two cool buildings:
and inside that one on the right i found a food wonderland! it was perhaps the most beautiful market i’ve ever seen.
^^ see what i mean about the hanging lights? ^^
^^ i came across this market square and couldn’t get over how beautifully the fruit was arranged ^^ and flowers!:
the boy and i met up for dinner, and afterwards we were both exhausted. but we agreed we needed at least one picture of the two of us in this amazing city! so we walked down to the bridge and this blurry photo is the best we got!
i am very much looking forward to experiencing stockholm in the summer!!
