On our second day in Stockholm, we decided to venture out to Vaxholm, one of the largest cities in the Stockholm archipelago, a collection of roughly 30,000 islands. Because building materials aside from wood were banned until 1912, the city is composed of quaint and colorful wood houses. Given that we visited in April, the city wasn't yet in full-fledged travel season, and the town was rather quiet. But, in my opinion, the inactivity and gray skies created a lovely peaceful atmosphere. The type that inspires musings and poetry and calm. Don't worry, I won't share any of the results for fear of chasing you all away.
Enjoy the pictures after the jump!
