Stockholm (July 2015)

Arriving in Stockholm was the first time since 2006 that I came to a place and just loved it. Of course, I have seen many beautiful places on the way and met very nice people. But how you feel about a place is quite random. It depends on the way you arrive and where, the first people you meet, the accommodation and its neighborhood. There have been many beautiful places in the last over 10 years, but here just everything came together perfectly.

This time, we looked at each other and said: This is it. But we are aware that now we have summer. So we decided to make the summer in Stockholm our winter home. For this year, our time here was short, as we will continue traveling to Estonia. But we will come back next summer. The motto is: Meet the Vikings - June to September.

This part of Sweden at this time of the year, sometimes has an interesting color. Pale and dramatic at the same time. This is a view on the inner harbor of Stockholm, taken from the waterside.

Arriving Stockholm at the beginning of July 2015, it is still not warm enough to swim comfortably. But we enjoyed the long evening walks close to our accommodation, South of town.

It looks like sunset coming soon. But for the sun, at this time of the year, there is still a long way to go until reaching the horizon.
