My 18 year old stepson, Ben, is in Sweden at the moment. He’s on his second month of a 6-month trip around the globe, having done some time already in the US, Mexico and Canada. He’s quite happily proclaiming Stockholm to be the best place he’s visited so far. He’s loving it.
It would appear the modern metropolises and big landmarks of North America have been replaced by culture, architecture, museums, bicycles and beer. I’m all for it…..
….It’s really very nice. I’ve spent 3 days just walking around it, I haven’t used a taxi, bus or train since we got here. The Museums are almost all free, i’ve been to the national war museum, the finance museum (i know; fun times), the royal armory and my favourite, the museum about the ship that sunk.
He’s off to Trollhattan “tomorrow” (though he might have already been by the time I publish this). Any Trollhattan tourism tips are welcome in comments and I’ll pass them on.
If you see a tall, skinny, dark haired Aussie kid roaming around in shorts and a T-shirt, that’ll be Ben. Say hi and please feed him.
