A lovely Stockholm evening

It had been a half-day trip to the Swedish capital including the open-air museum Skansen and then the Eurovision 2016 village. What better way to end it around the Gamla Stan on such a favourably warm evening.

We started on our way to Gamla Stan from Sergels torg, a major square in Stockholm. From here it was a walk past the Riksdagen (the Parliment of Sweden) over to the island.

Jenny would be returning back to Seoul the next day so was trying to spend her remaining Kroner in Gamla Stan. Too much to spend however it seemed.

We walked back to the train station over the Vasa Bridge, passing by Riddarholmen.

All that was left was for the the hour long train ride back to Uppsala. It always feels like an eternity, but we eventually made it.
