Day 15 - Uppsala

A travel blog entry by sezzawilliams on Jun 30, 2014

After breakfast we headed towards the tourist information and bought the Uppsala Tourist Card and got some information on public transport. We then looked briefly for a post office as John wants to send some stuff home. We then hopped a bus towards Gamla Uppsala, or Old Town Uppsala. We visited the museum arrival so we had a little background …

Day 14 - Stockholm to Uppsala

A travel blog entry by sezzawilliams on Jun 29, 2014

Today we caught a train from Stockholm to Uppsala. It's a short train ride. We checked into our hotel, luckily the room was ready early, and headed out towards the castle. We walked of course. The castle is a big pink monstrosity. The tours of it, which are apparently outside only, weren't starting until July so we were a couple days early. So we …

Surströmming: Eating a Biohazard

A travel blog entry by jaclyn.brian


... by climbing into a chemical suit and moving the can as far away from other people as possible. As soon as his can opener breached the seal, a stream of brine shot forth, instantly colliding with the one exposed area on Jason's body—his forehead. As he continued slowly cutting his way into the can, he started appearing fatigued, and once the wind finally carried the stench our way, it was clear why.

I suppose, maybe, I was prepared for worse. ...

Eating Contest

A travel blog entry by krosell


... the contest one of the officials of the contest interviewed all of the contestants to ask how they were doing. Some had dropped out at this point and others discussed how much they had eaten at past kroppkakor meals.

These kroppkakor were actually much smaller than the real ones that come from the Kalmar region, so instead of having something like 14 be the winning number, the winner won by eating 29. Victor ate 28. I tried to get him to eat one more ...

The Destruction of Fika!

A travel blog entry by krosell

... I fear though, that since Starbuck’s may be viewed as this great new thing from the States that has been in movies or that Swedes have had while traveling abroad. They might enthusiastically embrace the company not knowing what they are doing before it is too late.

I can only hope that Starbuck’s is rejected by the Swedes and that then Sweden will be inoculated against this disease that has plagued the States for ...

    Best breakfast buffet

    Rooms are standard hotel type, beds are comfy and the breakfast (included) is delicious and plentiful. Rooms are quite small, but unless you plan to stay on your room all day this is ok. All bathroom products are Face, Sweden's finest, environmentally friendly beauty company. A nice touch.
    Reception staff are friendly and very helpful, so good service all round. Also family friendly.
