So sorry I've been MIA for almost a month...No worries though, I come bearing gifts! I just got back from a long weekend in Gothenberg, Sweden, visiting my good friend from Semester at Sea, Mario. He was in town for a couple of weeks visiting his cousin. It was only a train ride away from here in Akre, so I popped over for a visit. (Almost missed my train and about had a heart attack, but that is a story for another time.) Had a GREAT time!
Reunited and it feels so good! (Yea, we're 23.)
I was hoping for better weather than we've been having here in Norwizzle...meh, not so much.
Mario's cousin Chris made us a bomb dinner!
A little chilly
Mario, pointing to Trygg-Hansa: "I think this is the name of the village that we're in right now."
Chris: "Uh...that means life vest in Swedish."
We wandered around a fort in Marstrand...
I love how they built on top of the existing topography, instead of demolishing it.
We made our way to the border of Norway and Sweden.
So I went on a trip to Sweden, but then making my way back to Norway. Go fig.
Ventured into "Old Fredrikstad"
