Stockholm Sweden.

Yes, it’s been a while since my last blog. I was a bit under the weather

But here we go again . I still have photo’s from our last cruise around the Baltic sea. This time I want to show photo’s of beautiful Stockholm, Sweden.

Swedens capital city spreads out over 14 islands in lake Malearen and looks out to the Baltic sea.

And this is what I want to show today, not the old city but just some of the islands and the beautiful sights .

To live here would be a dream. The clean air , the peace and quiet. Wonderful.

















Ferry , much needed if you live on one of the islands.

Wat heeft deze stad een prachtige ligging, nooit geweten eerlijk gezegd. Het ziet er geweldig uit. Je had op het dek van het schip denk ik een heel mooi plekje voor het maken van al die foto's met prachtige vergezichten.

Beterschap en een fijne week, Riet.

Liefs, Ingrid

Jullie hebben veel mooie plekjes aangedaan tijdens jullie cruise Riet. Wat een mooie manier om veel van Europa te zien.

Ik hoop dat je weer snel een beetje de oude bent! Van Harte Beterschap toegewenst en veel plezier in Frankrijk! Hopelijk doet de zon je een beetje goed.

Liefs van Madelief x

This is one of the most beautiful areas I have ever seen. We were there two years ago on a cruise.

Beautiful place to cruise. It reminds me of the Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence River by Kingston.

A nice glimpse of Sweden Riet. What stands out is how blue the water is and all the islands that dot the area.
Always a pleasure to have you link to Mosiac Monday.

I certainly enjoyed a view of a part of the world so unknown to me. You can almost feel the clean air. The water is such a deep blue and the houses look so interesting.

What a beautiful tour you gave us. Since travel is our passion, you've added another idea to my ever increasing travel bucket list!

Wow, what a lovely place this is!
Your photographs are just lovely.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I sure hope you are feeling better now. Your photos show us the diversity in that area. Beautiful sail boats and huge cruise ships...all in beautiful blue water. I'm not sure about living on that tiny island where that house is but I would love to visit! Hugs!

Beth said...

Gorgeous photos! I hope to travel to Scandinavia someday!

Lieve Rietje,

Heee jakkes wat vervelend dat je
je je zo naar hebt gevoeld. Hoop
dat het allemaal snel tot het
verleden zal behoren, duim voor je!

Deze beelden zijn werkelijk
adembenemend mooi, wat hebben jullie toch al veel fantastische
steden gezien, allen weer
met hun eigen schoonheid.

Lieffie, sterkte en beterschap,
geniet heerlijk in Frankrijk. en
kom als herboren weer terug!!!

Veel liefs,

Unknown said...

I can certainly see why you would have enjoyed your cruise, absolutely beautiful.

Mooie foto's, ben daar nog nooit geweest, wel in Noorwegen. Ik hoop dat het goed met je gaat, tijdje niets gehoord. In ieder geval ben ik blij weer wat van je te zien.
Hartelijke groeten, Marianne

Hi Riet,

What a delightful experience you had to be able to see all of this beauty! Thanks for sharing it with us today.

Have a Happy Blue Monday!

Hannah said...

Lovely photos of the water, islands, and houses, that's a special way to see Stockholm, instead of from a road. What I remember most from there is the Sculpture Gardens.

Lynne said...

So lovely . . . . Thanks Riet . . . wonderful to see you back here again . . . Be well my friend . . .

Annesphamily said...

Oh Riet, the sea of blue is lovely! What a collection of lovely blue skies and spaces!

I hope you are feeling much better. I hate seeing dear ones feeling [poorly. Take care and I am happy to see you back!

Hugs and Blessings, Anne

What a beautiful area. It must be wonderful to cruise around those islands.

Donna said...

I had no idea that Stockholm spread out over 14 is lovely much like our 1000 Islands here in NY.

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

Sweden looks like the perfect place to cruise.
was that your cruise ship in the photo Riet?

A lot of the houses look like our New Zealand wooden villas and bungalows.
I particularly love the two on the island (not like ours) they are so attractive.

Hope you are feeling much better today.
Take care

I hope you are feeling well now, Riet!

I loved this post--all your photos are gorgeous. The little islands in this lake are so picturesque, as well as the beautiful homes there and alsong the shore!

Mooie wereld daar, Riet, een heel ander beeld van de waterkant dan in Fryslân. :-)

Hello Riet, It took me all day to visit but I am so glad I came to see you today. I hope you are well dear.

Stockholm is a stunning place with so many islands and the blue water everywhere. I would love to visit there. Maybe someday.

Leuk om het nu eens vanaf deze positie te zien. Wij varen op de veer- en kleine lijnboten, dus dan kijk je er niet zo overheen. Mooie fotoreportage. Ik heb genoten. Lieve groet,

Aritha V. said...

Super mooi! Hoe gaat het nu met je?

Prachtige landscapen, groetjes, en fyne zondag

Jeanne said...

Good morning Riet, Just a moment to say hello and that I hope you are feeling well. I know you were planning another trip so I will have to wait for more pics of your many adventures. Your photos always tell the best story.
Bye for now.
xo, Jeanne

How great it would be to live on one of those islands dear Riet! The countryside there looks lovely with all of the green rolling hills all covered in trees. Beautiful, beautiful photos of the them Riet!!! I loved the photo with the ship showing just how large it really is compared with the islands.
How I love visiting your beautiful blog dear. I am living vicariously through you when you travel :)
much love...

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

It is beautiful Riet! I love the blue water and the peaceful looking cottages. Sweden was home to m ancestors (3 + generations back) on one side ... I believe I'd fit right in ;>)! (I would really love to visit someday...sigh, so many places, so little time!)

I am glad you are feeling better. I've been traveling and way behind and had not had time to miss you.
