Lund Main Square At Sunset

While in Sweden recently I managed to snap a few sunset photos as it gets dark so early in the winter. This one, taken in the Main Square of Lund happened around 3 – 3:30pm. Having lived in the UK for some time now I’m getting used to the sun setting earlier than it does back home in Australia. When it’s going down closer to lunch time than dinner time […]


Visit Skane, Sweden

This past weekend I spent time in the province of Skane (or Skåne) visiting the towns of Ystad, Lund and Malmo which all call the southern area of Sweden home. The last time I was in Sweden I travelled direct from Copenhagen to Stockholm and never even considered stopping to look around this part of the country. I was fixated on visiting the city I’d read about and heard in […]

Again greeted with yet […]

Stockholm Palace and More

When you go to bed at night you expect it to be dark. When you wake up at 10am in the morning however you would be fairly comfortable in assuming there would be light around. Yet when I woke from my slumber my first morning in Stockholm it was pitch black. Why you ask? Well I failed to notice that my dorm room had no windows the previous day. I […]


From Rain to Sun in Stockholm

I started off my europe trip wanting to make the most of every day and not waste time just for the sake of it. However after having travelled to a few stops now I found myself wishing I was back in bed and not heading for the bus stop, before 8am and in the rain. Still Sweden was calling my name and with just a hint of sun recorded on […]
