Off to Stockholm

Well, I'm off to Stockholm for two nights. I leave tomorrow morning early (5:30 a.m.) for a 7:00 a.m. flight.

I hugged Emma when she went to bed tonight and realized I will sure miss her. The cool thing was she didn't really let go. I'll miss Tamara as well and realize how much she does to hold down the household. The other kids will also be on my mind. They said the like it when I go to Sweden because of the gummi-candies, i.e., "Swedish Fish" that I bring back. When I looked for Swedish Fish, a popular candy in the States, I discovered that in Sweden they not only have Swedish Fish, but also, Swedish ice cream cones, strawberries, lips, hands, and most shapes you can think of. I'll try and get some pictures this time.

Although I enjoy the trips to Stockholm and the benefits to the project, I am grateful I can work in Düsseldorf the majority of the time. Can't wait to hear about the adventures while I'm away.

Ohhhh, I'm jealous. I've been dying to get to Sweden, but so far it we haven't made it...

Hi Eurotrippen

I would say it is definitely worth the trip. And you can drive there, if you're ambitious. I hear the tunnel/bridge from Denmark is pretty cool.

Stockholm is a beautiful city. I've heard the "old sunken boat", i.e., Vasamuseet, museum is tons of fun from folks in Sweden and Germany.
