Stockholm was a very clean, pleasant, sterile city. very expensive and really didn't hold my interest for very long at all. I would rather have gone to another city that had more joie-de-vivre. But getting there is beautiful. You slowly pass through an archipelago of islands that has fantastic scenery and calm perfect waters.
Wow, Russia..As a child of the cold war it boggled my mind that I would actually ever get to stand in front of the Hermitage. But here we were, and it was everything I had hoped it would be. Well except for the heat! I could go on and on about the beauty of the palaces and bore you to death with the details. I'll save that for my friends and family. All I will say is that I won't soon forget it all.
Oh man, Copenhagen is a fantastic city, not too big,not too small, I recommend paying a visit to the area known as Cristainia,for a very "Amsterdam" like experience (if you get my drift) and walking around enjoying nature for an afternoon. Note, watch your wallet's.. I spotted a pick-pocket gang there,but hey, that can happen in any city on earth.
