If there’s one thing I’ve learned from spending time in Sweden, it’s that this country is very proud of ABBA. Today Nick and I took the ferry to Djurgården where the ABBA Museum happens to be and we spent a considerable amount of time inside.
Yesterday I finally met up with Nick! His train got in from Malmo around 2pm and we checked into his hotel. For the past few days, I’ve been a bag lady.

It’s been getting dark pretty early, so around 4pm I had no choice but to return to Johanna. She was significantly warmer than the outside but still pretty chilly, so I threw another log on the fire.
Kolarbyn Eco Lodge is the main reason I booked this trip to Sweden. When I heard Nick was going to be playing a few shows here I started researching the country and as soon as I found these fairy huts in the forest, I was sold.
This morning when my alarm went off at 2am Los Angeles time, I made a promise to myself that the next time I book a plane ticket, I will spend the extra $30 on an easier flight plan rather than worrying about the bottom of the barrel, cheapest deal I can find. Anyway..

I love this city! Cologne has most definitely been added to my list of favorite places that I’ve been lucky enough to explore. I was fortunate to have been there on a perfectly clear day, and the colors that were brought out by the sun were incredible.

On my most recent work trip to Europe, I chose to stay an extra day and explore London. This was only the 2nd day I’ve spent in the city, the last one being many years ago. I figured I would re-acclimate by sticking to the major sights and experiences the city has to offer.
It’s been a couple of years since I’ve last been to Paris… so obviously, a trip to the French Pharmacy was on the agenda. City Pharma is the pharmacy to stock up on skincare and other goodies.
Here are just a few more photos of Edinburgh to wrap things up:
Scot Monument. My favorite.
The birthplace of Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone.
The memorial for my favorite childhood (true) story, Greyfriar’s Bobby.
I fall for cities and Edinburgh was my first love. My grama was born here, so it’s tradition in my family to make the pilgrimage to Scotland at a very young age. It’s the most special place I’ve ever been and no matter where I travel to, I compare everywhere else to here.
