Around Stockholm, July 2022

July was very quiet because most Swedes were taking their four week Summer break — many leave the city and venture to Summer houses or rural areas of Sweden. It was another very warm month with lots of sunshine and colour. An uptick of tourists also stood out because we’ve spent most of our time here while global travel has been restricted due to pandemic.

There’s something I really like about this curved apartment block along Tanto. At a quick glance, all of the windows look the same. But when you take a longer look, you begin to notice small variations like window awnings and plants on balconies. I’m also a sucker for repeating patterns on concrete monstrosities.

I recently bought an oversized white shirt. It’s not a colour I usually buy and I thought I’d made the decision all by myself. I later realised I’d been influenced by the fact it’s practically a national uniform during the Summer. They are very comfy and practical in the heat though!

We spent quite a few evenings cruising around the city on our bikes. I love cycling on bridges connecting the islands because you get a great view of the archipelago.

And that’s all for July!
