The colourful buildings, lots of water, the endless options of delicious food, the diversity of people, and its charm are just a few things that I like about Sweden’s capital city. I spent a few days there last week, it was my 4th trip to Stockholm. Inspired by my fellow ambassador Coco‘s photo diary from Lund last autumn, I will keep the talking short and let photos speak for themselves instead… Hope you enjoy the small tour around beautiful Stockholm!
