Landscape Wonder in Cappadocia

Throw back my trip to Turkey in 2015. We visited Istanbul and also Kayersi, the middle part of Turkey. A more popular name travelers go by is Cappadocia. A rare spot in the world that could see so many hot air balloons every morning. Hot air balloon there is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, from transportation, debriefing with breakfast, taking off and touching down. A medal that we received as a token is still hanging in my room.

I would say there are too many logos in Turkey's hot air balloons.

We also visited Gorome Open Air Museum, various rock formation are gathered in one place. There’s no another landscape in the world that Cappadocia looks alike. It almost feel like an alien planet.

Souvenir that is too big too carry back home. I bought a small one instead.

Heartbeat in Lines: Odenplan Station

Stockholm Subway Series

There is no subway system in the world like the one in Stockholm. Standing on the platform, you feel like an audience more than a commuter, enjoying the largest underground art collections.

Odenplan station would be one of my highlights of my stay in Stockholm. The new commuter rail station was opened in 2017 July, right under the metro station. It features a stunning installation crafted by David Svensson, capturing the essence of a busy city ever could be.

David Svensson’s “Life Line”

Svensson celebrates the birth of his baby and used his very own heartbeat to create illuminated lines in the escalating corridors between lower and upper platform. You might need to walk across the commuter rail platform if you are on the wrong side of the station. Ask for help from any friendly metro staff for directions.

All Green Lines (T17, T18, T19) pass through Odenplan metro station.

There is no subway system like the one in Stockholm. Standing on the platform, you feel like an audience more than a commuter, enjoying the largest underground art collections. Spending 5 days in Stockholm, I enjoy spending every night under the city, capturing art installations and architecture of the stations.

Spotlight: Photografiska

Visiting Fhotografiska Museet is one of my highlights during my stay in Stockholm. Look closer to all the letter “F” in the logo, resonates to the f-number, the optical system for lens in photography. The well-curated main exhibition “Like a Horse” portraited aspects of the relationship between horse & human. Irving Penn‘s works led the audience walking down on the memory lane of popular culture in decades.
