From wet ferry rides to museum-filled islands, and inspiring photography hubs with views of city skyline sunsets, our visit to Stockholm has to be one of our favourite city-in-twenty-four-hours trips thus far. Not only did this Scandanavian beauty welcome us with its many beautiful sightings and special “Fika” rituals, we found ourselves leaving creatively enriched.
Highlights include taking a silly photo at the ABBA museum (for my mom of course), gandering with geese at the lake side parks, and spending nothing short of three hours at the Fotografiska Museum of Photography, where three new How Far From Home project ideas were born (watch this space). Big thanks goes to @amvphotography_ on Instagram who suggested a visit to the museum. To say that we recommend it to anyone would (quite literally) be an understatement.
If you are indeed planning on visiting Stockholm, our advice would be to wear comfortable shoes (as you’ll want to walk EVERYWHERE), and stop at one of the many restaurants to grab a meal to go, then head off to the Stadsgården wharf to sit with your legs hanging off the edge, whilst you enjoy the Nordic sunset (which is so spectacular, it alone will be worth the trip).
Thank you Stockholm. Your charm and creatively-inspired way of life was the perfect ending to our Scandinavian journey. You’ll probably see us again…soon…maybe very soon.
