Greetings from Sweden:-)

My flight from Toronto to Newark to Stockholm.

 
Hej hej! I'm here! The land of Vikings and fair haired beautiful blond people:-)  A quick picture post. The first group is my journey here, the second what I saw around Stockholm today. Also a pic of my running bib and the best smoked salmon I've ever had!

Swedish pigeons eat ice cream:-) And they have Metro here too!!!

Some observations I've made while here. In general, people are quite fit. I've encountered very few smokers. Swedes do not greet strangers, but they are very polite and helpful. The coffee here is awesome...even the stuff sold at the gas station. But they don't use cream, only milk. Many, many fathers take on the role of caretaker, which is pretty hot. Plastic is the main form of currency here. The biggest atrocity you can commit here is to harm a child or animal. Stockholm is beautiful:-)
This was sooooooo yummy. I could eat this every day!!!
There's a Canadian flag on my bib...love that!!!!!

  5. Sounds like fun! Good luck with the run and enjoy your break away. We have coffee here with milk too and our currency is also plastic. Cash is hardly used now.
