Hello from Sweden!

We made to Sweden without much issues. We got just a couple of hours of sleep over the Atlantic, but Henrik did the travel quite well (as always so far). We lucked out and got an empty seat between us on the long flight so that helped. But the whole "get on board, go to sleep, wake a couple of times and that's it" is no longer our mode of traveling. The small price we pay for parenthood!

We had access to the business lounge in Chicago, but we didn't want to stay in there when it got crowded, mostly because Henrik was a bit on the active and loud side. The play scape nearby was a much better option, and he got to roam around a little before being on the flight for 8.5 hours.

Connecting in Stockholm was tight but we made it without problems. We even got our luggage with us!

Saturday was a tired day, we played around the house and went for a walk, but bed came very early to catch up with sleep. Today Henrik spent a few hours with his grandparents while we went downtown to pick up a few things and just walk around a bit. They're getting along great.

We've started a smugmug page to provide a bit of pictures from our trip so far. It's available at our SmugMug album here. Unfortunately we forgot to bring the color calibrator, and the MacBook seems to need a calibration. Apologies if the colors are off.

A couple of photos are so far are withheld because I wanted to let Brandy blog about it herself. :-)

Oh, and one final note:

Sunrise today was 1.52am. Sunset will be at 11.25pm. It's great to have lots of sun but it's always hard to take good photos when the light is too sharp. The light at night is awesome though, once we've caught up with sleep we'll definitely explore it more.


  1. so glad you made it safe! enjoyed looking at a few of the pictures you've taken so far. crazy that it is light there for so long.

  2. Wowee! That's a lot of sunlight! Have a great time over there! It's so nice that Henrik gets to see his family so often. :)

  3. Glad you had a safe trip. Hope you guys have a great time. It reminds me of Alaska when it was light most of the time.
