Wow-weeeeee Bentz!! Bon Voyage to you & Mere!! You are going to love Stockholm!! One of my favorite cities I've visited. So many things to see & do there but some of the places my friend & I especially enjoyed back in 2009 were the Vasa ship museum http://www.vasamuseet.se/en/
(amazing cool ship!!), Swedish Museum of National Antiquities (with great Viking exhibit!) http://www.historiska.se
, Skansen (open air "museum" of traditional Swedish architecture plus a cool zoo with Nordic reindeer among other animals http://m.skansen.se/
and last but not least - the whole Gamla Stan area ("old city") which at night is like a fairy tale place I think!! http://www.old-town-stockholm.com/
Again - bon voyage and enjoy all you do, see, & visit on your trip. :)
Unfortunately, we are only doing one night in Stockholm, so we probably won't be able to see all that stuff. We will be meeting up with Fredrik's brother, Tobias, for drinks at an ice bar and dinner at a Viking Restaurant in the old city, so it should be a fun time none the less.
We have three nights stay in Bergen (Arrive June 24, Leave morning of June 27), though, so if you have anything that is a must see there, be sure to let us know!
Oh, I see - you'll have a cool time
at the ice bar though and going to Gamla Stan at night will be awesome - like I said - it's very fairytale like. Will get back to you when I have more time about Bergen (like I told ya on fb) - having been there a week - I saw & did so much, I gotta think about my very favorites. Ha - but everything was awesome, so that will be hard
- it's a magical place.
Ryan, Carrie, & gnoff - nice weekend plans as well!
My plans? I'm on my way to get my hair & nails done - gotta get all "gussied up" for my big college reunion weekend - 30 years - gah!!
which commences tomorrow night! Haha - gotta look my best for people I haven't seen (in some cases) in 10, 20, 30 years
