After booking into Stockholm‘s Skeppsholmen hostel with a boat; but I was on dry land; I walked to Djurgarden in the afternoon, and to the west of the city and city centre in the evening. Here’s some photos:

After a few hours in Oslo bus station there was a surprisingly scrambled boarding of the night bus to Stockholm. It was nearly full, so I ended up on the back seat. It therefore reminded me of my Istanbul – Munich bus journey on my first road trip in 1987/88; twenty-five years before.
I slept most of the night, not knowing when I left Norway and arrived in Sweden; my first border crossing outside the U.K. for fifteen years. I only remember that we stopped near a lake at first Swedish light.
We arrived in Stockholm at about 05.30. I thought I’d wait for the hostel to open in the station, but then got bored, and thought I’d make the most of the bright sunny morning.
Stockholm City Centre Photos
The city still slept, and there was little traffic. I saw most of the main Stockholm city centre sights from the outside before going over the hostel. Here’s some photos:
