Although I didn’t see this Solar Egg Sauna or Yash’s mural in Stockholm, Sweden, these other travel sightings were well worth the visit.
Stockholm was the first stop on our Scandinavian cruise this summer. We missed the first day but had a wonderful view of their Tivoli directly across the bay from our balcony on the ship.
We got a closer view on the tour bus when we visited the historic old town.
We were able to experience a day in the life of a Viking at the Viking Life Museum and witness the reason their ship building skills were so superior. Notice how the boards were layered over one another like roof tiles. The hulls were sealed on the outside making them impervious to water and leaking.
This was an unusually calm cobblestone street scene when others had so much hustle and bustle.
Street shop signs have a lot of individual character in Stockholm.
We were able to dodge potential falling, renovation-debris with their use of protective covers over construction areas in the courtyard where we walked.
Walking through tunnels also helped to bypass some hazards.
Coming across early Viking runes was an interesting discovery and some of the last remaining Viking finds in this city. Runes were rudimentary carved messages left to show the significance of an individual.
We soaked everything in back on our Viking Ship, where we enjoyed some contemporary artwork with sequined fish in the World Café and a colorful rock collage below the main hall stairs.
