We say goodbye to the stellplatz in Stockholm this morning making our way north through the cities maze of freeways.
A couple of last comments on Stockholm as we leave. It is an amazing city built around a cluster of islands with waterways in every direction. Many beautiful buildings and palaces, classic public artwork and lots of interesting museums. The fact your can look over the water and see the spires of churches in every direction. On the flip side its a very expensive place to stay, eat, drink and visit museums. As beautiful as Paris but much more expensive in our opinion.
We are heading north this morning rather than south (the way home) to visit the town of Sigtuna. Pam’s cousin Iris lived in Stockholm for some time and recommended a visit to Sigtuna (Iris also recommended the Vasa and it was great). Sigtuna is only 40 kilometres north west of Stockholm so its an easy drive on the freeway.
We finish our visit to Sigtuna with lunch in the park before heading south again. We have no choice but to drive through Stockholm again, but being Sunday afternoon the traffic is reasonable and we are soon heading south out of the city. We have entered the co-ordinates for a farm stop about a 100 kilpometres further south, so we’ll see how we go.
