Photo Essay: A Winter Day in Stockholm

 Last night it finally snowed. I haven't seen much snow since I got back from Norway and really hoped for a snowy Stockholm when I came here. As you may or not know, Stockholm is one of the ugliest cities when the weather is bad but one of the most beautiful and most wonderful ones when the sun shines OR when it has snowed.

As I like snow so much, I was really glad to see Stockholm covered in it after the last couple of days were rather grey and depressing. But snow enlightens everything and makes everything just prettier. So although I wanted to go home right after class today, I decided not to but instead to stroll around Gamla Stan, the old town of Stockholm, to take some pictures.

Luckily I had my camera with me!

My winter day ended with 2 scoops of ice-cream at Ben&Jerry's in Gamla Stan - raspberry chokolade chunk and cookie dough of course :)

Do you love snow as much as I do?
