Today we started one of our side trips – taking the train to Stockholm.
Oslo Central Station is a very busy place. There were delays due to problems down the line, but luckily not the line we were taking.
The first part of the trip headed southward to Goteborg. Paul liked that we stopped at a place called “Ski”, even though it is springtime.
The scenery reminded me very much of BC, especially northern BC with trees, lakes and farms.
We also saw some churches and castles (Aunt Faye take note).
We passed by a dam.
And some things that we weren’t really sure what they were. The big blue circles in the background and the log structures in the water.
Arriving in Goteborg, we switched to the high speed train the rest of the way to Stockholm. We will visit Goteborg a little more on another trip in June. On the way back we will take the high speed train direct from Stockholm to Oslo.
More farms, trees and lakes on this part of the route.
Plus some cranes and a UFO landing spot?
The hotel we are staying at is a lovely 1800s building with marble stairs and an ancient elevator. The hair dryer isn’t all that new either.
Looking forward to exploring some museums over the next two days – though only a small selection as Stockholm has 89 museums and we would need a lot longer to be able to explore them all.
