... I think I heard 14, so everywhere you look there are bridges and waterways. Dennis and I walked over to the old part of the city where there are picturesque tiny streets and alleyways. After wandering around a bit we had an early dinner since neither of us had eaten anything since breakfast on the plane. We found a little place on an old town square and shared carpaccio and a pizza with venison and porcini mushrooms. Delicious! The prices are a little stiff, ...
... and it started raining. Before the end of the trip the sun came back out then rain again then sun and rain at the same time and by the time the tour ended the sun was in control again. We went back to the room to get rain gear as we were going to walk around and find a place to have lunch but when we got to reception it was raining again. Deb noticed that the hotel had a Sunday smorgasbord so we decided to give it a look. This was ...

Here the land had not been snatched up yet and a swede have invented the moberg plow which was a v shape making it easy to plow through the rocky land that ironically was very similar to the land back in Sweden! They also claimed the first to invent the log cabin! interesting enough, another popular place for swedes ...
... Saturday afternoon and will spend all of Sunday here before heading to Oslo, Norway. I must add that everywhere we've gone -- without exception -- we've encountered the most pleasant, courteous people we've found during any of our European trips. We've always had good luck finding great people, but the Scandinavians are truly wonderful. We'll be back soon with more from The Northland. Bye for now!

... Roisin picked up the bow and a quiver containing three arrows.
‘How hard can this be?’ were her famous last words as she took aim pulling back on the bowstring.
‘Thwang!’ the first arrow flew off to the right completely missing the target but nearly took out a peasant Viking kneeling down tending to his dug out canoe.
Roisin’s reaction was to look at the bow in an inquisitive way as if the accuracy of her first attempt ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Strand Hotel, Stockholm
My fiancee and I just spent four nights in Stockholm, all at the SAS Strand Hotel. Wonderful location, right in the heart of the city.
The hotel was expensive being in a nice building on the water in a central location. The room was a pretty standard kind of hotel room, reasonably clean but a bit dated. It was a superior room so i think a normal room would be average. The matress seemd quite old and springy. The view out the window was lovely though, and the room was a desent size. So really you are paying for the location. The hallways seemed a bit shabby. The service was very good and professional. The location was great... we never had to catch any public transport around the city as we walked everywhere.
I would stay there again, but it does hurt the wallet....
One of my favorite hotels in Stockholm
This stylish hotel is located on the water and within walking distance to the city center.
The hotel and room was clean, quiet, comfortable and roomy.
The staff was polite, helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating.
The breakfast was scandinavian and plentiful.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Stockholm.
Perfect Stockholm Hotel
I have stayed in this hotel 3 times now and have enjoyed it immensly each time. The location is superb, right on the water in one of the nicest parts of the city and is ideally situated for both business and leisure activities. The rooms are modern and bright with some stylish touches - make sure you get a water view room to make the most of what this place offers.
Overall the hotel has a very welcoming atmosphere with extremely pleasant staff and a personal feel to it.
Whether you are visiting Stockholm for business or pleasure this hotel will leave you with a very positive impression of the city.
Great position yet quieter than the grand
we stayed here over christmas and loved the attention we got. The hotel has a great lobby with big sofas and good bar food. the staff telephoned endlessly to find us a restaurant for christmas eve-very difficult in sweden.
the hotel's postion is just behind the grand on the harbour side, so in my mind equally attractive. good deal!
Nice hotel in a prime location
Nice hotel in a prime location, within walking distance of several of the key sights of Stockholm, including the Vasa museum, old town, the castle, theatre, shops and restaurants. The location and interior of the hotel match its four stars with friendly and helpful staff, and an excellent buffet breakfast. The business class room in which we stayed for 3 nights had a separate sitting area but a suprisingly tiny bathroom.
The hotel offers valet indoor parking at SEK 390/night. The hotel did not offer or advertise any special new year's eve dinner but is located only 200 m from the Grand (the city's leading hotel) which is a festive and more romantic place for fine dining.
A great hotel
My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in June 2003. The hotel is wonderfully located next to the waterfront and close enough to Gamla Stan to walk in about 15 minutes. The hotel was very smart, the bedroom was clean with a very good bathroom. Hotel staff were very friendly and always helpful. Breakfast was excellent. Stockholm is a beautiful city.
Great location right in the middle of Stockholm, on the other side of the tiny peninsula where Grand Hotel is located. It faces the water as well. Stay here and you are in rock throwing distance from the castle, National museum, Old town and shopping. Very nice breakfast room. Small room, but adequate. I will definitely stay there again when I go to Stockholm again.
Nice smaller hotel. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We had a water view. Location close to old city, museums, and canal cruise. Staff all English speaking as is everyone in Scandinavia and helpful. Small restaurant which served breakfast and light meals but everything was fresh and deli'cious.
The best thing was the breakfast!
We stayed in this hotel for New Year 2004 and it was clean and comfortable. Our room was pretty standard if a little tatty around the edges. I presume that it is a hotel geared moreso to the business market. The staff were professional and accomodating. The buffet breakfast was the highlight though...a delicious way to start the day in freezing Stockholm
