Next time, you’ll be here too.
Hadn’t seen Becky since we parted nearly a year ago in Nepal!
So we headed out for some food and drinks
And nearly missed the last train home
Next morning, we headed out to Camden Market
Stopping to check out the canal boats along the way
I’d never seen anything like this before!
Camden Market was big
It just never ended
It didn’t even end here
On and on
A rave department store
I wasn’t supposed to take pictures; I’m sorry
I bought Becky a cronut… she was terrified of it
Beautiful Spring weather
221B Baker St.
St. Pancras Renaissance hotel
Afternoon tea and scones
The Shard gave an awesome farewell
But what trip to England is complete without fish & chips
And Banoffee pie
Sunny, sunny Florida…
Lunch in Copenhagen, wishing you were here.
Eurovision took place here
Tivoli — rumored to be Walt Disney’s inspiration for the parks
Sing to get a subway ticket as a Eurovision promotion
Even department stores look amazing
Boats float lazily, as visitors dine nearby
Saw Julia, my German friend from high school!
Quiet day on the waterfront
Friday shoppers take a break
The sun kept coming and going as we walked
Stairs in this were leveled to make a sloping ramp up to the top at some point in the past.
We had an amazing brunch near the university
Walking tour of Copenhagen
A very lively place
The trains have no drivers, just windows
Streets of Copenhagen
The airport is more a mall than any other airport I’ve seen!
I don’t know how much time we have left together, but I think of you every moment, wishing you were here.
Flew over the Atlantic
The design everywhere is amazing, including the airport baggage claim
Took the bus to the center of town
Three trams later, I figured out how to pay and which to board
But the money doesn’t have denomination labels
They leave blankets outside at restaurants in case you want fresh air– but it’s so cold.
Streets of Gothenburg
Banners made of jeans
Nordstan shopping mall
Had to check out the McDonald’s seasonal items — Chicken wings and Prime Nib (no typo)
Yup, a mall.
But spring is in full bloom
And the weather was lovely
So I wandered
Followed the spring
Eating traditional Swedish foods
And raspberries with butter and ice cream
Until my first afternoon came to a close
But not without me discovering that Sweden loves gummies
Just like Ikea
My morning run through the park was gorgeous. We later returned here to relax that day.
Grabbed a morning coffee from across the street
Trying to learn the local language
Moved over to my hotel, that’s a pool on top!
7-11s are like Japan, places of wonderment and good food
So I bought the weirdest things I could find.
Before returning to the park
Swedes have good taste
I also located the largest chair in Gothenburg
And then I located a cider
And some local food
But, still managed to stop by to get more gummies
My hotel is nice
My view is nicer
Bill Murray talks about coffee
Tiny cars live here
And every afternoon, the Swedes enjoy the tradition of “fika” — afternoon coffee break. So I followed suit.
I love you, dad.
