Of Walks and Bridges

September 19, 2014 Posted by Vaire ,

In an effort to improve my stamina, I devised a plan this spring to start walking home from work. Taking it at stages first, and then, walk all the way home at least once in September. I can report that I've met the "at least once" goal — I walked the whole way home this week. It had been a long day, but I felt up to the task, and I went on an amazing walk home at dusk and sunset.


There is a bay that the first 2 kilometres circle and there was this gorgeous light, so I snapped quite a few photos on the way. (About a 100, I got carried away a little.) The hill that is at the end of those 2 kilometres had been kicking my ass so far, but I conquered it.


Sometimes it feels that Stockholm is built of bridges, tunnels, hills, and more bridges over bridges (or under). This particular bridge is a train bridge and there happened to be a train passing as I crossed the water on yet another bridge. It may sound like I'm complaining, but actually I'm not. Coming from a relatively 2D city, the 3D nature of Stockholm threw me a bit when I first arrived. Now I find it one more thing that makes this place so unique.
