Well, I might not have been so much as living as I was holidaying… but it’s living that I was wishing for! Stockholm is incredibly beautiful. It’s nothing like I’d ever seen before, and every nook & alley looked like it would make a perfect photo shoot location.
These are just a few snaps from one of the few days I spent in Stockholm (admittedly, it’s the one when I was wearing something I particularly liked..). I’ve tried to omit most of the “touristy” shots so that I don’t bore you too much, but I hope that you like this selection.
My favourite part of the city was Gammla Stan, or ‘the old town.’ It was riddled with narrow streets, and teeny-tiny alleyways in which you’d find secret cafe’s away from the hustle and bustle of the tourists.
The downside: They say that New York bleeds you dry. Stockholm bleeds you dry and then tries to take what’s left of your organs. I can’t fathom the amount I managed to spend in just 3 days! This lunch cost approx US$35 [pricey drinks excluded] and it definitively wasn’t anything fancy…
Although the view was GORGEOUS, and with a soft breeze in the air it won out over many other lunches I’ve had in the past!
Checking out the Royal Palace – which was being supervised by a couple of life guards & all that!
On the bridge between Gammla Stan and the central city. I like thinking about how it would have looked before it was littered with street lamps.
Here’s what I was wearing…
Dress: Zara [in Malmo, Sweden!]
As I didn’t see any way to mention it earlier: I AM back in New Zealand after perhaps the most incredible 3 weeks of my life. Getting back into the daily grind has been surprisingly refreshing thanks to a few technological upgrades at work… [I’ve gone MAC & I doubt I’ll go back!]. I hope you’ll be seeing more of me around in the next few weeks as I get back into a regular schedule. 🙂
