We continued our journey going to London and staying in a very expensive hotel with a horse called Jacob outside.We were near the Tower Bridge,and walked across it. At night we went to see “The Mouse Trap” which was very well done.We wandered the streets after the show..dark alleys but we were safe and we eventually found the railway station. Next day we went to our ship the Marco Polo, the same ship we had sailed on before around the Mediterranean. Most of the passengers were our age, and we befriended a Welsh couple whom we may visit before we come home. We were at sea for two days and landed in Copenhagen where we looked around the town and went to a typical Danish Village Dragor on the Baltic. In Germany we looked around an ... read more

Today was our last day in Sweden, so we decided to make the most of it before jetting back to London. Our first stop of the day was the Vasa Museum, which is a museum built over top of an old graving dock. In 1628, the Vasa was launched. She was the pride of the Swedish Navy, featuring 64 guns and amazingly ornate sculptures. Unfortunately, the designers didn't quite get the stability analysis right, and she capsized about 20 minutes into her maiden voyage. She was still in the harbour! Attempts were made to recover the 69 metre long ship, but at the time, there was no way to lift such a big heavy object from the bottom of the ocean. Since the Vasa sunk in the harbour, her masts were actually sticking up above the ... read more

This morning we headed down to the docks and embarked on an ice-breaking harbour cruise around the harbour islands. It was a neat adventure because overnight, much of the harbour had re-frozen, and being the first cruise of the day, the boat had some ice-breaking duties to clear a path for other boats. It was neat to see how far Stockholm stretched out (over 14 islands). We learned that 50% of Swedes have access to a cottage (owned by someone in their immediate family), and one in ten own a boat. It's no wonder these guys are the happiest nation in the world! We wanted to take a cruise through the archipelago, but we didn't have enough time. Either way, this was a nice way to see the islands, and since it was so cold out ... read more
Look at all the ice!
