Travel Blogs from Solna
Greeting all, from somewhere in the ocean between Sweden and the Åland Islands, a group of islands that is technically part of Finland, but speak Swedish (or the other way around, I'm not sure). Anyway, an island in between Sweden and Finland. I'm currently on a ferry, sitting out on the back deck, basking in the chilly and windy sunshine. I've spent the last four days in Sweden, doing a bit of outdoors activities and wandering around half of Stockholm. I still feel like I ...

As wonderful as the whole Stockholm and Sea Battle experience was, traveling with these two truly genuine guys, made the trip all that more amazing and one that will always be remembered. Thank you, Princesses, for putting up with me for six days and creating some awesome memories. To making each day count.
... direct from station to port, I reckon I'd saved myself the hassle of lugging my stuff down into the metro and saved the cost of the bus. Plus I only had 20sek and was going straight through Sweden. Passing the port you see cars queuing to drive on and nearer the terminal, a flock of people in red and yellow t shirts.
