Aby-a-Day – 3 December 2020: Things we saw along the way (Travel Thursday)

Because of the pandemic and me being in a high-risk group, I haven’t travelled much at all this year. This trip to Stockholm was the first one I’ve taken anywhere since we took Lorelai to meet Io back in July. It was nice to see new and different things again!

There had been some snowfall, and at a rest stop, I saw these lovely frosted leaves.

On the road at dusk (around 15:00), there was this incredible moonrise.

Considering I took these photos through the windows of a moving car, I think they turned out rather well.

On Saturday, we went into Stockholm city to do some shopping. We passed by the Royal Palace, already decorated for Jul. I love the concrete lions guarding the entrance.

As luck would have it, whilst I was taking that first photo, the Royal Guard happened to pass by!

I took this one on the way back when we stopped at an ICA to get a snack. It was closed, but if we hadn’t stopped I wouldn’t have gotten to see the historic Åsgården.

Still, out of all the things we saw last weekend…this was definitely the best!
