Left Härnösand yesterday morning. Took the train to Stockholm which took four hours and fifteen minutes.
For a while I thought I’d been overly optimistic when I planned my trip. Even though I’ve stayed in the same place for almost two weeks, there has been something going on all the time. I felt worn out when I left — as if I never wanted to travel again (!). I’d chosen hotel carefully, the main reason being its location, across the street from the central station. When I’d dragged my heavy suitcases, and my weary self, out of the station, it turned out I couldn’t cross the street because there was Stockholm Marathon going on! I don’t know for how long I stood there [and many others with lots of bagage], before I sneaked over the street. They got very angry when I did it … I got really barked at!
Once I was ‘installed’ in my room, I took a quick shower and then, hit the streets. Then everything changed — I felt really happy I’d opted for this short stay in Stockholm. The evening was wonderful, people everywhere … the city was so full of life! Didn’t bring my real camera — only the phone — but today I’ll go out and take pictures.
