Gamla Stan



Greetings from Stockholm! I’ve been in this city for a few days so far and I’m loving every moment here. I’ve always wanted to visit Sweden because I’ve heard great things about the country’s rich history, scenic beauty, and advanced systems. My visit here is confirming that all I’ve heard is true. I feel that Stockholm has the history of a European city, the natural wonders of Canada, and the cutting edge technology of Japan (public transit here is amazingly efficient). Better yet, Swedish people are extremely kind and polite, which makes my stay here so pleasant. Stockholm is a true world class city, and if money were no object I would live here!


The photos in this post were shot in Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s historic Old Town. The narrow alleyways, cobbled streets, and cultural buildings in Gamla Stan date from the 13th century but are still very well maintained. When I first did my research on Gamla Stan, I was blown away by its beauty and I knew I wanted to shoot a blog post here. Lucky for me, the weather was gorgeous on the day of my visit and during sunset Gamla Stan looked its very best. As all photographers know, the perfect shot requires luck just as much as skill. I’m happy that I’m starting off my travels with good luck on my side!

    Wow, I continue to be extremely jealous of your amazing travels! I’ve always wanted to visit Sweden (or Europe in general), esp since some of my fav male actors hail from that country 😉 Also, one of my oldest friends stayed there for almost a year for a school exchange program and she fell in love with their amazing history and architecture– things I know I would deeply appreciate as well. As well, my boyfriend went there about a year ago for a work conference and loved it too…

    Loving your blog posts and IG posts– you’re always looking stylish, enjoying such awesome sights, or eating delicious food! Keep it up :)
