Hey Hey from Stockholm

It is often called the Venice of the North. Stockholm is a vibrant northern European city built on a series of islands that extend into the Baltic Sea.

We’ve had a great 3 days here, hiking all over the city, exploring its culture and history and sampling the local food: reindeer, pickled herring, fish stew, to name a few.

The Swedes are a proud people. Proud of their long-running monarchy, their culture and hosting the annual Nobel Prize ceremony and dinner. They are also friendly and approachable, at least for us tourists.

One thing we notice though is that they must have a different technique/custom for avoiding each other as they walk along in a crowd. We’ve all noticed that we’ve had to step aside more here than usual.
