We have a reasonable sleep overnight, there was some duff duff music in the distance but not loud enough to be a problem. Expecting to wake up to rain as the forcast predicted we were happy to see it’s still dry. After yesterdays long walk into town we will walk up the hill and find the metro station today. The tourist office gave us some advice on the train, so we will give it a go after breakfast.
As we walk into the metro station we spot a Pressbyrön, its a 7/11 style shop and the best place to organise a rail pass. The girl in the shop is very helpful explaining more than one person can use the card and how to make sure we get the senior’s rate. I can tell Pam has a real affection for this young lady. Ten minutes later we are in Gamla-Stan.
We still have another museum to go at the Royal Palace however our metro ticket includes ferry journeys so we make our way to the ferry terminal.
It’s well after lunch time when we walk out of the Vasa Museum and go looking for somewhere for lunch. We find a cafe with a view of the harbour, order a pizza and a couple of drinks and sit down for a rest. Suddenly we find we are sitting next to a couple from Western Australia. We have a good old chat about travel and family. They are departing on a Viking cruise of the Baltic tonight.
Anyway we get back to the safety and security of the Hymer without too much delay. So that’s Stockholm done, we’ll continue south in the morning and hope for some warmer weather.
