OneLens Still Needs A Jacket In Stockholm In August

Only spent two days in this spectacular, welcoming, and walkable European tourist hub: Stockholm, Sweden. I visited at the end of my European adventure which also included France and Germany. I was flying back to JFK Airport (NYC) via Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport. Featured images were captured on my Canon T3i or my iPhone 5s. Faux-tilt shifts were created in post using Photoshop. Traveler’s tip: Visit Saluhall (food hall) and sample everything–including the reindeer and the lingonberries! I stayed across from Stockholm’s Konserthus at Haymarket by Scandic–a great boutique hotel with a hipster bar and sizeable continental breakfast. This centralized location is walkable to the Arlanda Express, Gamla Stan, and the Royal Palace.

Oh, and remember to still dress for that WIND in August! Happy travels!

Europeans bike! Even on these uneven cobblestone streets. Shot on my Canon T3i.
Wish I remembered the name of this cafe! Finding the best, local coffee shops is one of my favorite travel activities. Drinking a latte outside gives you plenty of time to sit and people-watch. Delicious!

Faux-tilt shift at sunset. Was much colder than it looks for August. Walking is still the best way to discover hidden gems though!
My Nordic Food Walk with Stockholm Food started at Saluhall. Food tours are one of my favorite ways to get immersed in a new city! Not only do you get to try a bunch of local dishes, but you get the walking layout of the city. Try to do one on your first full day in a new city–then revisit your favorite spots! Shot on my Canon T3i and HDR’d in post.
