Stockholm is Sweden’s capital and most populous city in Scandinavia, but it is also one of the greenest, and looks after its beautiful natural surroundings, with hundreds of islands in the Stockholm archipelago, and many parks and forests providing nice places to walk. It also has great architecture, with an old town dating back to medieval times.
Sweden’s Stockholm History and Travel
Hi, it’s Jack Wolfpac, legendary travel writer correspondent at the Greenygrey. After Marc Latham set off in 1987 inspired by my human parallel Jack Kerouac, for a journey that lasted just under a year, his trip to Norway and Sweden in 2013 marked the end of his personal twenty-fifth anniversary tour.
I’m delighted to report that the Travel Thru History website has now published Marc’s article Pastel Sunshine Thoughts in Stockholm about his time in the city. It mixes his personal travel history with Stockholm travel and history information. It’s available on the travelthruhistory.com website.
Stockholm Article Innovation
In a world exclusive interview, Marc told me that he thinks the main new innovation of this article was the inclusion of quotes by Swedish people.
He’d first of all thought of just writing in the land of.. and names, but then thought it would be cooler to use quotes, and especially if they were relevant to the article.
Norway – Sweden Photo Exclusive
At the end of the article Marc wrote that the falling blossom was the last scenic photo of his twenty-five years of travel.
It was, but that was photo 473 of his Norway-Sweden trip, and there was a photo 474.
In another world exclusive, I’m delighted to reveal that it was this greenygrey one!:
