Sweden 2010

Here we go then, a quick tour of the tiny part of Sweden that I managed to see during the past seven days. First stop my brothers place in Vasteras. Apologies to any Swedish readers for the lack of inflections, afraid I don't have those on my keyboard.

Then a one hour journey courtesy of Swedish railways to 3 full days in Stockholm with a double booking mistake at our hotel which led to a fabulous, free upgrade including a fully paid for taxi across the city to our new accomodation!! Wow!!

The wondeful Stockholm island of Djurgarden. Check it out, fantastic. Stunning views, truly breathtaking.

Do I need to say more where this next picture is concerned??? I seem to remember spending a lot of time in here, maybe a little money too!

and something equally as beautiful, Svenskt Tenn. Truly stunning contemporary design. I couldn't even afford a paper bag in here though.

I really hope these next pictures make you gasp, deep in the woods, miles from anywhere. A little red riding hood..ish.

The home of my brothers father in law and his lovely wife. Words fail me.

I believe that this is the outdoor loo, never used, far too pretty.

Then back to Vasteras and my brothers house for a few days, with a view to die for.
