Hello from Sweden!
During their European vacation, the Pankows swung by from Paris to visit us for a week. We had a fantastic time! Great dinners in some of Stockholm’s finest restaurants, including B.A.R., Tradition, and the amazing Viking restaurant.
We had a magnificent brunch cruise aboard the S/S Stockholm to celebrate Wally’s birthday. This was just like the dinner cruise, but it’s brunch. The food was traditional Swedish and was exquisitely prepared.
We went to the Vasa museum followed by an elegant lunch at Wärdshuset Ulla Winbladh. We also did the Police museum and the National Museum of Technology. Somehow, we even squeezed in a boat cruise out to my favorite Swedish castle, the Drottningholm Palace.
The men spent a day in Skansen, while the ladies adventured up north and stayed in an ice hotel and journeyed for the northern lights.
And of course we had to have a traditional Swedish whiskey tasting. Notice how we got photo-bombed by Jack!
Joe had a great time in the parks, museums, the zoo, and of course, with Spooky!
Thank you, Pankows, for coming all the way out here to see us. These were memories of a lifetime. We hope you will return next year since we hardly even scratched the surface this time!
