My recent city break to Stockholm has resulted in plenty of amazing photos. It is always a difficult thing, choosing the best to share without me clogging up your respective internet pipes. Many pictures evoke quite vivid memories of the moment itself which, while having special significance to me, may be lost on those who have not been.
So in creating this photo tour, my hope is for you to enjoy some breathtaking views of this beautiful city.
If it inspires anything more, that’ll be a bonus.
