STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – Sverige


Gamla Stan, the old town of Stockholm


Started snowing soon after we arrived.


Sodermalm, the area of our hotel. Still snowing.


Stopped at Big Bob’s…uh, I mean Ben’s for a few brews —— Falcon Ale, a superb Swedish brew. It too is brewed by Calsberg.


Big Ben


Great street signs in Europe ——- One of the many warnings for icicles


Climbed our way up tons of snowy stairs to catch a view of the city


There is no shoveling in Sweden. Good thing American’s don’t live there….they’d sue


That’s the walking bridge we climbed all the stairs to see the views —– Hmm….mermaid, I think.


A different view of Gamla Stan —— We saw more strollers in the 3 days here than I’ve seen in my life.


Lots of statues…running out of poses.


What are ducks doing in Sweden. Why aren’t they frozen??


Statue in Ostermalm


The man made sledding hill —– There I am, sledding with the kids. Where’s my sled, you ask? It was so small you can’t see it


There’s a strange looking zamboni


LOL, that’s a different. Parkforvaltningen? —– More snow removal from the roofs to prevent icicles. The temperature rises and falls
so often, icicles are a huge problem.

Djurgarden vs. Frolunda


Globe Arena


mmm…Jose —— Djurgarden


Djurgarden is wearing blue, Frolunda white


Djurgarden won


Today Tracey and I took the ferry over to Djurgarden


Some of the views from the ferry to Djurgarden, the ship we’ll be taking to Helsinki and the Vasa Museum


More views from the ferry ride


More interesting signs. I’m learning the language. Utfart is exit and Gangvag is short cut

Nordic Museum


The Nordic museaum contained the history of sweden


Bubba


Stop, I’ll scream —- The halls of the museum

Vasa Museum


In case you were wondering, where’s Cynthia?? Here she is….still sick. :(

Icebar – Stockholm


Chillin’ in the icebar —— I triple dog dare you


We actually had a farely easy time getting around on the subway. YAY!


More of Gamla Stan


The royal palace


Workers removing the snow to prevent icicles

Our stay in Stockholm is over. Now our trek to the ship begins. Off to Helsinki
