Today's theme plus my current state of recovering from a brief brush with a cough bug led me to reminisce about a weekend trip we took a year ago while I was taking a diploma course in Finland. At the end of the first three weeks of our course, we took a short cruise aboard The Isabella of Viking Lines from the city of Turku in Finland and in about 9 hours we landed in Stockholm, Sweden. It was literally a 24-hour sojourn in and out of Sweden, the closest encounter I will probably ever have with the lifestyle of the rich and famous. More on this trip in later posts.
Some points of interest such a lazy weekend in Stockholm have brought me to:
View from inside our cabin-
View from The Isabella's deck, as we meandered between Turku and Stockholm-
As I awaited the announcement of my name as Prize recepient, in front of the Nobel Museum and Swedish Academy-
But it wasn't to be. Not yet anyway =]
