Everyone has been properly forewarned of the impending trip to the north countries, so no complaints. Bird and HP depart 13 June for six weeks distributed between six countries in and adjacent to Scandinavia. We fly into Stockholm, Sweden followed by Denmark, Norway (half the trip is spent here in fjord country and above the artic circle. Yep we will spend some days when the sun will not set), then down from the top of Sweden till returning to Stockholm and boarding an overnight ferry for Estonia, followed by Finland and St. Petersburg, Russia (yeah, we don't like Trump's buddy Putin either but, being this close, we must go), and finally returning via Helsinki, and two overnight ferries to Stockholm where we'll spend a couple of more days before the hop back across the pond.
We expect a ton of scenery, and even some pretty city views. The highlight, we hope, will be Norway, so be prepared for a deluge of photos highlighting fjords and craggy mountains(Tim, we anticipate you will love them). The furthest north is the Norwegian Lofton Island's town of Evenskjer at 16 degrees N.
The very sad part is our youngest child, Sally, must remain in the U.S. Her sister, Baby Bird, has enthusiastically offered to provide her with exceptional accommodations during the trip. Yes Erin, we thank you for offering time there; sorry schedules did not comport. We are sure BB, Monsters 1&2, and Walt will send pictures of Sally, which we will gobble up and share.
Next post perhaps in a week from Stockholm. See you then.
