Last week I went on my first business trip ever, and it was a fantastic one! The trip was to Stockholm, Sweden. Not only was the work really productive, but exploring the city was really fun as well. One of the highlights was that my coworker and I went for an
evening run along a popular route. That was super! We also ate a lot of traditional food and sampled many local beers. What a great trip! Below are some of the photos I took.
Photo info: XF1, 9.7mm, f/3.6, 1/20 sec, ISO400 We were walking to dinner and had to stop several times to take photos of this amazing sunset over Stockholm.
Photo info: SLT-A77V, 10mm, f/6.7, 1/20 sec, ISO1000 This is the Arlanda Express, which is the best way to get to/from the airport and Central Station. We used the app to buy tickets while at dinner. So convenient!
Photo info: SLT-A77V, 50mm, f/2.8, 1/250 sec, ISO100 I was surprised to find sakura! I see so many Instagram photos from Japanese instagrammers, and I am happy that I could take some sakura photos too.
