2017-07-13  SEGWAY BETWEEN THE BIKES

By | 2017-07-11T19:56:04+00:00 July 13th, 2017|Stockholm|

Stockholm is a great city for bikers; there are some bicycle-lanes where you can see hundreds of bikers driving. And no restrictions for Segways, they cruise around in the whole town. Stockholm has all means of transportation, bikes, Segways, Uber, Taxis, subways, trains, ships, rickshaws and your feet for the last mile. 🙂

2017-06-29  GIRL MAKING HOT CHOCOLATE WAFFLES

By | 2017-06-28T20:36:25+00:00 June 29th, 2017|Stockholm|

This photo shows a scenery in the old town of Stockholm, where you can find many little shops and gourmet food stores. This girl was sitting near the street, with an open window and was forming hot chocolate waffles. There was an aromatic smell after sweet chocolate and crispy, warm waffles. The sore temptation to get one was even higher if you saw they were handmade.  🙂

2017-06-26  STOCKHOLM METRO STATION IN RED

By | 2017-06-08T21:13:28+00:00 June 26th, 2017|Stockholm|

It looks like a volcano is shortly before the eruption, lava permeates through the stone, it gets hotter and hotter. 😐 If I shut down my fantasy, it’s (only) one of the great metro stations of Stockholm. It was on our last day, where I said to my wife “We haven’t seen the subway station art yet, let’s go and have a look.” I googled where the stations are and here are the photos. 🙂

2017-06-23  PALMS IN A LOUNGE

By | 2017-06-05T20:39:01+00:00 June 23rd, 2017|Stockholm|

A typical scene from the Caribbean? Growing palms in a lounge, with the hot sunny weather? In Stockholm you have lounges, but no real palms. 🙂  I had to go very near to verify if they are real, but then recognized the fakes. This bar was near the Vasa Museum, a place I can recommend if you need rest from some longer walking and sightseeing sessions.

2017-06-17  ONCE THE BIGGEST SHIP ON EARTH

By | 2017-06-04T11:31:41+00:00 June 17th, 2017|Stockholm|

The Vasa had a long building phase of 2 years but a very short life on the sea for about some hours, it foundered after sailing about 1,300 m (1,400 yds). The ship is a giantism, unbelievable massive wooden construction, many artful sculptures. But the superstructure was too big, that led to the inglorious end.

2017-06-07  HALL OF MUSEUM IN STOCKHOLM

By | 2017-06-03T13:56:38+00:00 June 7th, 2017|Stockholm|

Since we had the Stockholm Card with free entry, we visited the Nordiska Museet, although it was not on our plan. The entrance hall and the next gallery rooms were impressive. The exhibitions are more for native Swedish. There was an Aurora walkthrough, but there, shooting photos was not possible, it was extremely dark, with some simulated, green aurora stripes coming up. Outside of the museum is a chill out area, where we got some cold drinks, Stockholm was hot.

2017-06-01  HOTEL IN STOCKHOLM FOR LUNCH

By | 2017-05-31T19:28:56+00:00 June 1st, 2017|Stockholm|

My wife and I entered this hotel after searching for a light lunch meal, like a salad or fresh seafood. And that was what we got, very good  🙂  I discovered that order/payment method there, many times in Stockholm: choosing and ordering the food in front of the cashier, paying immediately, getting a number and then searching a table. I found it very practical, faster and more efficient than the traditionally ordering in restaurants.

2017-05-30  SWEDISH CROWN ON AN IRON FENCE

By | 2017-05-26T20:38:36+00:00 May 30th, 2017|Stockholm|

I wondered how long it was bright as day in Stockholm; this photo was taken at about 10 pm, no signs of dusk. This time combined with warm weather at about 27/80 C/F gave a new feeling how to discover the night. Here you see the royal palace. There was also a guard a the entrance, who had a gaze like most of the security guards. The building was lovely, but not so dramatic as the king’s palaces in London or Paris.

2017-05-25  THE ART MILE OF STOCKHOLM

By | 2017-05-25T17:00:32+00:00 May 25th, 2017|Stockholm|

Want to see impressive underground art metro stations? Then visit Stockholm and begin with the Blue Line and station Kungsträdgården, a joy to look at it and get inspired  🙂 All you need is a metro ticket, which I bought with my Stockholm Pass which you get with a Public Transport ticket combined, thoroughly recommended. Higher ISO or a tripod are required, then feel free to shoot. For the passengers it’s not a problem at all to get on the photos, they are already accustomed to it. 🙂
