After spending a couple of days in Uppsala with Malin, it was time to head out on a little adventure by myself. So after an elaborate breakfast my camera and I made our way to the station, to catch the train to Stockholm.
My first stop in Stockholm was the Photography museum which was really really great. I love wandering around museums on my own, at my own pace and I only recently got into photography museums because I was looking for some inspiration for my own photography. For some reason photography seems like such a straight forward form of art but it really isn’t and I’m struggling to get past that point of making the typical touristy pictures. So for now I just try to observe as much as I can, play around with my camera and take it one baby step at a time.
Anyway, back to Stockholm, if you do get to the photography museum, which I really think you should, go in the morning when it isn’t crowded yet and stay until your belly is growling, walk all the way up to the top floor and have a great lunch with an even more amazing view! Totally worth it. After lunch I desperately needed some fresh air so I made my way to the ‘old part of town’ (after getting a little lost twice of course) and fell completely in love with the architecture, colorful houses and cobbled streets. I wandered around aimlessly just following my camera around and before I knew it the sun was about to set and it was time to head back to the train.
I have to say that I was feeling a lot more at home in Sweden than the other countries I’d backpacked my way through so far. The people in general are very kind and willing to help and its so well organized that I didn’t experience that kind of “what am I supposed to do now”-stress. I’m definitely coming back to Sweden one day to hopefully explore more of its beautiful nature and some Fika to go with that!
Have you ever been to Stockholm? Or anywhere else in Sweden?
