Photo Friday: A dog jaunt on Stockholm’s historic tram
This week’s photo was taken almost three years ago from Stockholm’s Strandvägen, an elegant waterfront street stretching from Nybroplan to the English Church and the embassy quarter. What a gorgeous boat! No wonder the dog on deck is keeping a watchful eye on the photographer.
Walk along Strandvägen, or take the historic tram (No. 7 Djurgården line) to Djurgården, the island home of a wonderful collection of museums, parks and historic buildings. Pet dogs are allowed on Stockholm’s buses, trains and trams if they are leashed or in a carrier. The customer service rep I corresponded with told me that on modern trams, there is a symbol on each door telling you if pet dogs are allowed in that part of the tram (a dog x-ed out with a red line means that pet dogs are not allowed in that car). On the historic trams, which are smaller, an allergic passenger may require you to wait for the next tram (if the tram has more than one car, change cars).
Get off soon after you cross the Djurgårdsbron bridge, just past the huge Nordic Museum, and walk up Rosendalsvågen to the Ulla Winbladh restaurant. Dogs are not allowed inside, but they may sit with you while you eat at the outdoor patio. Stockholm is full of marvelous restaurants, but Walter and I returned to Ulla Winbladh again and again for delicious food in comfortable, lovely surroundings.
Please send me links to your favorite dog travel photos! They’ll get listed below, for everyone to click on and view. Here’s how it works:
- Every Friday, I’ll put up a post like this one, sometime during the morning (Pacific time).
- If you have a blog or a website, post a dog travel photo on your site on Friday and link back here to the current week’s “Photo Friday” post so that your readers can see other great dog travel photos. Please take a moment to make sure that you are linking directly to your photo post instead of your homepage.
- If you don’t have a blog or a website, simply post your photo to Flickr (or Facebook, Twitpic, etc.).
- Using the inlinkz button below, paste in the link to your photo or your blog post. That way, Dog Jaunt will link back to you. Please include a few words in the “Name” box describing where you took the photo (in this case, “Name” refers to the name of your photo, not your name!).
