Sweden

Fairly early we left our fine Airbnb accommodation in Copenhagen for the train station located near Tivoli Gardens. We took the SJ200 Tilting train through Malmo.  Awesome – 125 mph and very posh even at our cheap rate.  AFter 5 hours 15 minutes we arrived in Stockholm and walked from the train station to Lady Hamilton hotel in Gamla Stan (Old Town) of Stockholm.  What a beautiful city is the old part of Stockholm.

Since there was a long line for currency exchange at the train station, we went on – ran a bit tight.  But everywhere accepts Visa anyway, but it’s nice to have a bit of cash for small purchases.  Saw an ad for a recital at the Royal Opera House, tried to get tickets, but it was already sold out for that evening.  No more scheduled for while we were in town.

Took a canal boat tour this afternoon followed by a guided walking tour of Gamla Stan later.  Ending the lovely evening by enjoying coffee and sweet at the oldest bakery in Stockholm.
