On my return journey from the EOU2017 conference in Turku, Finland, I was lucky enough to get a long layover in Stockholm, Sweden. Rather than spend the entire 9 hours in the airport (don’t recommend ever doing that), I made use of the time to get into the city and do the tourist thing.
I took the bus form the airport to the city, which gave me a 45 minute view of the landscape along the way. To be honest it was not all that interesting and in hindsight I should have taken the express train and had an extra half hour to explore the city. That would have let me add an extra gallery to the trip.
The first thing I did was to walk directly to the Old Town, Gamla Stan. What a beautiful place. I spent a hour or two just walking around, up and down the alleys.
The other side of the coin, is the mass of tourists and people. From the buskers playing their guitars and singing to the police. From the looks of it, everyone was enjoying the streets.
A highlight of the day was getting to the Fotografiska museum/gallery. What a beautiful display of images. An absolute inspiration and a must see for anybody who visits the city!
On the way back to the train station, I was able to capture what has become my favourite image of the experience.
Thanks for reading.
