May 28, 2015 - Lund, Sweden

Caught the train to Lund, Sweden tthis morning. My friends, Joel and Sarah, met us at the train station. What a great day! Coffee at a Swedish coffee house! Wandering through the 11th Century Cathedral! The church had a fascinating crypt in the basement. Hm. I wonder if I can convince the seminary to bury me in the crypt of the new building.

The day started really early at 5am when the sun woke me up and I decided to do some last minute packing... I have been practising putting on my big backpack a few times in the house before the trip, but everytime it was with the help of Marcus. And this is the first time I put this on myself and I wouldn't say I was doing that too elegantly. ;-) But I managed nonetheless.
