Midnight Wanderers: Night outs in Stockholm

A couple of months ago, just before exams of P1, when we grappling with VHDL codes late night in Electrum, my friend Abu started reminiscing how he spent his last 6 months in India roaming around streets of Delhi late night, and now we’re all buried under books. And it just came to us, let’s see how is Stockholm past midnight.

As we travelled towards T-Centralen, nearly all the metro stations and streets were empty. And this ticked a thought in my mind. From the day I had landed in Stockholm, I’ve been craving to do a photo project on Stockholm tunnelbana, but getting a speckless picture was quite difficult, because most of the beautiful stations are the busiest ones as well. So finally, I found this window of opportunity. So, from past two months, on Friday or Saturday, the two days when metro runs all night, we decide a random metro station and then explore the nearby areas as well.

It wasn’t dark at much dark till midnight when we arrived in Stockholm

The hardest part of being out during nights is waiting for bus on a breezy-rainy day

Finally, I’ve covered most of the beautiful portions of “World’s Longest Art Gallery”, just one more name left to check off from the list, and then I can publish them. Stay tuned till this weekend for a short trip to Stockholm Tunnelbana(Metro).
