Yesterday morning I decided to bring my camera with me and take some pictures of my route to work that I bike and show you what parts of Stockholm I pass on my way. The entire week has been one of those perfect and crisp, chilly fall mornings. Both on my way to work as well as on my way home the colors of the sky has been absolutley spectacular! This morning the sky was colored in pale blue and pink and there was quite some fog lingering over the water. It looked just gorgeous. On my way back the sun is about to set and also paints the sky in the most beautiful colors. I leave Sjöstaden behind me and start out crossing the first bridge over to the souther part of Stockholm city. Sometimes they close of this bride to let the larger boats pass.
This is one of the most beautiful parts of the way here at the start. I just love living close to water again. There is always something pretty to look at when passing this bridge that crosses the canal.
Over in Södermalm (southern part of central Stockholm). There are many people biking besides me as you can see or people walking.
This is another of my favorite parts. The sun is shining on the house of nobility here.
I also pass by old town (the oldest parts of Stockholm and this is a must see if you come to Stockholm as a tourist). Here the old buildings from the 1600s are really pretty and decorative in their architecture.
Just before I am about to pass the beautiful buildings of Old Town and I go downhill from Götgatan I get this view that is also very pretty.
Götgatan, one of the central and most famous walking streets of the southern parts of Stockholm. This street is always crowded by both pedestrians and bikers as well as a few cars trying to pass by. It is very busy.
I also pass by one of the best kitchen shops called Cordon Bleu. This is Stockholms Williams-Sonoma store. I have not yet had the chance to go inside and take a peak but I would love to.
This is what it looks like standing by a red light amongst other bikers and traffic waiting for the light to switch to green and start pedaling again.
I pass by some of the most central parts of Stockholm such as the Grand Central Train Station. This part is kind of tricky and has a lot of traffic so here one has to be careful and concentrate.
The view over city hall with its tower and three golden crowns shines brightly in the sunlight.
Stockholm is a truly beautiful city. It has a beauty that Birmingham just does not have. I just love that it is so full of life also with people, shops and resturants.
On my way home the sun is about to set.
Passing by the Old Town and one of the squares.
Again one of my favorite parts, this narrow part very close to the water. The street lights have just been lit.
City hall with its silouette against the setting sun.
House of parliament where the government sits.
Finally back where I started and very close to home again. The other evening this boat just passed under the bridge as I biked by and I could hear music being played from the boat. It was just one of those moments I want to treasure in my hear and add to my collection of beautiful memories.
Now it is Friday evening and that feels great. I love the feeling of having the entire weekend in front of you. I just wish the week had more Fridays or what do you think?
I wish ya´ll a great weekend!
