In 2007, I booked a flight ticket for Stockholm with the intention to spend a week in and around the Swedish capital. This was the first time I got out of France on my own without my parents, l wasn't alone either since a good friend of mine came along.
The plan was to explore as much as we could on a tight budget, we booked 2 bed in a dorm room of a backpacker located right in the center and decided we would walk around all week long. I brought the most important thing with me which is my camera and I had in mind to capture what I saw. I didn't had any specific topic to work with but to capture anything I found beautiful from street scenes to cityscapes and landscapes.
To me, this holiday was a taste of freedom and the discovery of the unknown. I quite liked the fact of being free in a place that did not speaks my language, I had to explore, adapt and learn. This was life and the right first step our of my comfort zone.
I will share with you some of the best photos I captured around Stockholm, to do so I had to split my article in different parts. This is the first post illustrating my first day and arrival, there will be more to come in the future.
