gamla stan – the imperfect perfect

september 2012

i have a thing for old doors, the broken, and the imperfect. i think the small flaws we all have, both cities, houses, and people, are what makes us interesting and beautiful. imperfections give character.

although gamla stan (the old town in stockholm) is overrun by tourists and its main street is filled with souvenir shops and tourist-traps, walking around in the small side streets, sitting down at a cozy cafe under a huge chestnut tree still makes it worth my time. gamla stan still has its soul.

  1. Oh my, I know exactly what you are talking about! We stopped for an apple pie with vanilla cream in some small alley and it was wonderful. Old towns always have their own soul. <3
