Suddenly I find myself spending the autumn months in Stockholm, a cold but beautiful city. Even though I’ve been here countless times during the last 30 years, I still find new places and I love exploring the crooked alleys and hidden paths lurking around the corners.

For example, Monteliusvägen is a small path which offers a great view of central Stockholm.

Bellmansgatan Urban shortcut at Bellmansgatan.

Nearby is the gothic Mariahissen from 1885 as well as interesting architecture.

Old town Prästgatan in Old town of Stockholm.

The Old Town never gets old, so to speak. I have been roaming these narrow alleys for decades, but I still manage to find something new here and there. I wave to my old friends, the dragons perched on the tower of the German Church, as I head down the very narrow steps of Mårten Trotzigs gränd.

Soon the annual Christmas fair at Stortorget will open and people will appear like a train of lemmings, but tonight the alleys are empty and all mine.
