The Vikings

We finally arrived in Oslo, our last destination for our Scandinavia trip! The hotel we stayed at was fully automated, which was something we have never seen. You get your room cards from those kiosks! The room was really nice for our standards, we were exhausted from the Fjords day  but were still a bit…

Stockholm Part 3: Opa Gamla Stan!

On the third day in the beautiful city of Stockholm, we woke up early to visit the palace located in the old town, also known as Gamla Stan. The old town was a few minutes walk from our hotel, passing by beautiful old cobblestone  streets. We arrived at the Royal Palace and started our visit…
