Postcards from Stockholm

If you are looking for a reason to visit Sweden, this is basically it: Summer is Sweden is mythical. Beauty is everywhere in this photogenic city and the people are in celebration that the sun is here.

And it is. During my trip, there were 18 hours of daylight and 6 hours of twilight per day. It literally never gets dark and the sun rises at 3:30 in the morning. Everyone, in turn, acts accordingly: Everyone is out until 1 or 2 in the morning because it doesn't feel late. Meeting with friends for dinner, feels like lunch. You find yourself getting up at 5 in the morning because the light outside tells your body that it is time to get busy. It is simply fantastic.

I love Sweden. These images typify the the sights of Stockholm that caused me to fall in love with the city and country. If you only knew Sweden in the Summer, how could you not fall in love with this place?
