A few weeks ago, I went on an awe-inspiring road-trip through Iceland with Mr.A and two of our closest friends in Stockholm. Although it will take me a while to recount all those breath-taking views and experiences we shared along the way, let me start with Reykjavik, our port of entry & exit. Like I do on all my trips, I tried to capture the spirit of the city through its vibrant street art. At least a few years ago, the authorities in Reykjavik were not very supportive of this form of art. Not sure where they stand now, but I was happy to find a lot of color along Laugavegur, Reykjavik’s hep main street, leading up to the beautiful harbor area of Gamla Höfn. Take a look 🙂

… Continued from Croatia Day 6: Motovun, Hum
We spent most of Day 7 on the road, stopping here and there, at no particular destination. The drive from Hum to the capital Zagreb was about 200km, we finally arrived at our apartment hotel by sundown and settled in for the last leg of our awesome Croatian road-trip.
And that brought us to the end of our amazing week in Croatia, the fascinating, versatile land of natural & cultural wealth. We could wish to stay on much longer, but it was time to head back to new adventures. And there is always a way back to places we love, isn’t that right?!
Following up from my previous post about Stockholm graffiti, here is the story of project ‘Slussen Restart’ that my pretty girl was a part of… Slussen, in central Stockholm is all set for a facelift. Of the many changes that are underway, Kolingsborg, which acted as the canvas for the said street art, was recently demolished. Now Stockholm has a pretty strict stand against graffiti, but Kolingsborg proved to be an exception. Some renowned spray artists were invited to create their magic on the historic building before it was torn down. The remodelling project has faced some protests, too, from citizens who do not support the changes. I have not read much about this myself, so I will refrain from commenting on the reasons. You can read more about Slussen Restart here and here! I also enjoyed watching these videos from the project – when the building was painted white to prepare the canvas and the other one showing the project in progress. And of course, I had to go see it for myself and click some pictures before it was all gone…
