My brother, for all his many visits with us here in Sweden, had never been to Stockholm. So we fixed that on this trip … though somewhat at the “last-minute” because although we offered it up early in the itinerary planning process (as we do every time he comes over) … he declined, saying he …

Survived Stockholm, and its sense of style

I spent most of the past week up in Stockholm working a big corporate management event for my company.

Staggering up to Stockholm

I’m tapping out this entry in the Awesome Note application on my iPhone because the WiFi access included in my 1st Class ticket aboard the X2000 “fast train” is not working in this particular car.

Backing into Stockholm…

Greetings from the X2000, the Swedish rail system's “express train” to Stockholm. In this case, express means a four and a-half hour journey rather than a six hour one. The Mothership and I are embarking on a 30-hour adventure in Sweden's capital city, which may not sound like a lot of time…but keep in mind …

How not to see Stockholm in six hours…

This is been a really busy but interesting week, starting with a one-day business trip to Stockholm on Monday.  I was asked up to our parent company’s corporate headquarters to assist on a communication project for the CEO, and when the CEO calls…well, let’s just say it would not be a wise career move to …
