Mon, 18 Feb 2013 | By loveisknowledge | Views [298] | Scholarship Entry

The moment I touched the ground I could feel the energy of a historical action as it flowing through my body. You could almost feel the 'talking' of the past and you must listen. You feel like wind is talking to you. Everythime you lay your eyes on of ... Read more >

My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

Sun, 13 Jan 2013 | By wanderlust22 | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

At the age of 7 my first camera was the prehistoric Ricoh L20. Taking an interest in photography as I got older, people were surprised by the angles/depth I would capture effortless. Yet it wouldn’t become a passion until my early 20s. An exchange in ... Read more >

The Electronics Conspiracy

Mon, 3 Sep 2012 | By vagabonds | Views [777]

The computer and the "smart phone" (if one is savy enough to master the technology) can be a real aid to travelers.  We have been using our MacBook to scout out World Heritage sites and to find hotel rooms.  Booking.com seems to be the go-... Read more >

Impressive Nordic Impressionists

Fri, 31 Aug 2012 | By vagabonds | Views [1957]

I was a bit surprised (and not a little disappointed) that Sweden isn't chock-a-block with leggy, stewardess-type blondes.  And where are all of the saunas?  The biggest surprise of all may have come at the Konstmuseet, Goteborg's ... Read more >

Tanum Rock Carvings

Thu, 30 Aug 2012 | By vagabonds | Views [1820]

It is unusual for us to rush through a country, especially one as beautiful as Norway.  Of course we will see more of Norway on our cruise next week, but we also wanted a chance to see some of the places the ship will not go to.  When we were confronted ... Read more >

The Ice Age really left its mark on Sweden, scouring out the thousands of glacial lakes that define the countryside.  But a more remarkable thing occurred 10,000 years ago when the thick ice finally melted.  The land north of Härnösands, unburdened ... Read more >

Villa Fridhem, Härnösands

Thu, 23 Aug 2012 | By vagabonds | Views [1196]

Sometimes you stumble upon a place and just don't want to leave.  Like Villa Fridhem in the town of Härnösands.  The B&B is a bit off the main road and even our SatNav couldn't locate it.  (We've gotten to referring to the GPS as "her,"... Read more >

Falun Copper Mine

Tue, 21 Aug 2012 | By vagabonds | Views [2037]

A rainy day in Sweden looks much like a rainy day in Minnesota, which may have a lot to do with why so many Swedes settled there.   Fall is in the air even though August is barely half done.   School started on Monday and many of the tourist sites ... Read more >

Vasamuseet and Skansen

Sun, 19 Aug 2012 | By vagabonds | Views [1210]

Eat your heart out, Clive Cussler!  The Swedish warship Vasa, a true marvel in the 17th Century, sank less than an hour into its maiden voyage.  It was poorly designed (too narrow and top-heavy) and was insufficiently ballasted.  Since the king ... Read more >

The Nobel Prize, A Dynamite Idea

Sun, 19 Aug 2012 | By vagabonds | Views [1146]

One of the benefits of winning a Nobel Prize is a free trip to Stockholm.  Well, maybe not. The recipients visit in the cold and darkness of December, not on a beautiful sunny August day.  At any time of the year Stockholm combines the old world elegance ... Read more >
