This trip was taken in July of 1998. We spent a week travelling through
Sweden. When we arrived in Stockholm we stumbled upon an American Festival.
It was hilarious! It was interesting to view their interpretations of American
food and culture. They had a western section with a mechanical bull and
up on stage they had people doing aerobics shows and kareoke. They even
had the Line Dancing Club of Sweden perform!
One interesting side note: Nobel laureates are presented their awards at a hotel to the left of the photo below.
We took a train into northern Sweden to visit the Lekland area. We stayed in Rättvik and walked around Vidablick. It is a beautiful area. After returning to Stockholm for a few more days we took the train to Göteburg(Gothenberg). It's a gorgeous city on the western coastline of Sweden - the city has beautiful rose gardens and canals.
This is me at the end of one of the streets in Göteberg. I had a great view!
After a night in Göteburg we took another train to Copenhagen. The highlights of this trips included the Carlsburg brewery (where you can try beer not found in the US and drink to your hearts content), the Copenhagen Jazz Fest, the Nyborg Carlburg (i.e. the Carlburg museum - it's fabluous!), and Christiania.
After a few nights in Copenhagen we headed to London. After meeting a cousin (three times removed!), we toured the city and visited the places we hadn't visited in our previous trips. We went to the Tate musuem, the Tower of London, and were able to attend the Off-West End play Popcorn.
