“Everyone carries his own inch rule of taste, and amuses himself by applying it, triumphantly, wherever he travels.” ~Henry Adams
I think it’s inevitable when you travel that you filter what you see through your personal tastes. But I believe that your tastes are also moulded by travel, and subject to change as you see and experience more. Certainly, the more I learn more about parts of the world I’ve only recently started exploring, and the more I explore their cultures, traditional arts and architecture, the more I am able to appreciate beauty in forms that are very different to those I grew up with.
You might find this colourfully lit escalator in one of Stockholm‘s metro stations the height of gaudiness or you might love the kitsch colours as much as I do – it made me smile each time we used this glorious rainbow-hued stairway. Many of Stockholm’s metro stations feature quirky and colourful decor, and are well worth exploring in their own right.
