Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Stockholm Metro

On my final day in Stockholm I visited a few of the colourful Metro stations. The Metro is often referred to as the 'longest art gallery in the world'. I was sorry I only had time to visit a few of them. Where known I have added the names of the stations!
Radhuset



Tensta
















Kungstradgarden

  1. Wonderful art work, I had no idea this existed. The art that looks like cave paintings and petroglyphs like from the American Southwest are especially beautiful and apt. I will tell my friend who moved here from Sweden about this post.

  4. What a good idea to put art in such public places where it is reasonably secure. The illuminated escalators grabbed my attention.

  9. The first one you showed of Radhuset (the escalator up) looks like it's a stairway into the clouds. So fun. I will definitely have to have a talk with my sister about where our travels will lead us!

  10. What a fabulous idea. Turning the underground rail into an art gallery.

  11. It's wonderful they have turned them into art installations but I didn't care for the subterranean feel. I felt kind of claustrophobic. Probably just me!

  12. Who would have thought a subway station could be such an art gallery. How incredible. 17 days until we are in England.

  13. Wow, such romantic views of Kensington Gardens!
    Thank you for your comment: I guess we'll "have to" like that green for the house for a number of years at least:)

  15. Am glad - much better than in some other Metro's I've seen! Somewhere I saw you have a grand daughter - does she often go with you on your train-excursions for your blog?
