May 22, 2008: A walk-about in old Stockholm

Monday I took the subway from Kista to the center of Stockholm and walked from the T (T-Centralen where the green trace starts) to the island below and continued to the next island and walked to the left - following the bridges until I returned to T-Centralen.

Today - I walked to the east (right) to another small island, then back and to the next island to the right - where there are several museums and a park. Today the total walk was 10.3 Km. Good exercise

Taking the escalator back

The GPS tracks and map (interactive - drag the map toward the right and see where I walked on Monday afternoon - no tracks but you can see the bridge that I crossed - then walked north, crossed another bridge and then back to T-Centralen).
