Dec 21, 2007 - Scandanavia/Eastern Europe

Our highly anticipated Christmas and New Year adventure! Took months to plan (Thank you Alexo!), and a few more months to actually get it finalized! From figuring out train and bus timings, to booking hostels in the thousands of places we were visiting, to actually getting seats reserved in the trains and ferries (most of them!). Here I should mention that the crew bought 'Scanrail' tickets - tickets that allow train travels anywhere and at anytime around Scandanavia. Ours were 5 day tickets, hence allowing us to commute freely anywhere...

The most interesting thing in the church is a giant clock built in the 1300's. It has a calendar well until 2130 something. It is a...

Feb 12, 2004 - Discovering Scandinavian roots

Although we landed in Malmo and promptly bussed out of it, we are officially counting Sweden as one of the countries we went to. We saw a beautiful sunrise and the most amazing and potentially expensive bridge in the world. Not only does it connect two of the globes's most advanced nations but it also becomes a tunnel en route to Copenhagen, Denmark. Once in Copenhagen, we quickly donned our gloves and toques (did you know that hardly any Europeans and Antipodeans know what a toque is?) [By the way, an Antipodean refers to those from...
