Södermalm view

Hard to distinguish if this is a train on Storstockholms Lokaltrafik’s line T17, T18 or T19, but that doesn’t really matter I guess. Södermalm borough is a nice place to wander around. It’s steep hills offer some nice views over the old town, and the cruise terminal as is the case here. This part of the city is also less touristy, and has some nice … Continue reading Södermalm view

Some variation in the breaks

You can’t always have drinks on a terrace in between visits when it’s sunny, right? Not always, indeed, so I found myself next to the tracks for a little while, while my girlfriend was chilling out along the water. South of Stockholm’s train station is a bridge over the water, right before the tracks dive into a tunnel. I didn’t stay that long, really, but … Continue reading Some variation in the breaks

Rundetaarn

Our couple of days in Copenhagen were filled pretty good – we didn’t only chill out on terraces to enjoy the sun. Among the places visited were the church of Our Saviour, the design museum, Nyhavn, Christiansborg palace, the Little Mermaid, Tivoli gardens, lots of designer shops, and the Rundetaarn. In this landmark a spiralling ramp leads up to the top. In between passing visitors … Continue reading Rundetaarn

About durable transport

During a 1 week vacation, my girlfriend and I made a double citytrip to Copenhagen and Stockholm. These 2 cities are perfect to combine in a week, if you ignore the fact that travelling in Scandinavia really is more expensive than what we are used to. And even more so when the weather is nice: we spent more time than expected sitting on terraces, with … Continue reading About durable transport

Setting at a steady pace

I was feeling like ending this beautiful day in a good way, enjoying the last rays of sunshine, before driving back home. Not a lot beats sitting at a quiet place with sun heating up your body. The place I found did not really qualify for the quiet criterium, right next to the road, but considering it was only april there wasn’t all that much … Continue reading Setting at a steady pace

Platform shot

The camera and politician on the previous spot made me uncomfortable enough to move away quickly. I went to the station of Lorchhausen, mainly because I didn’t have immediate inspiration on where to go next, but also because there are shelters for the rain: there was a serious shower coming up. Right before and after the rain, the sun was giving all of its warm … Continue reading Platform shot

Larmschutz

While I was waiting for trains at this location, a local politician was recording an interview about the noisy trains in the valley. I really don’t like being caught on camera, and especially not in this case, so my stay here was for a very short duration. Long enough though to capture modern, silent, Traxx engine 185 030 with a tanker train… the noisy ones … Continue reading Larmschutz
