Quote: Between Easter weekend 2004 to April 9, 2005, I spent two weeks in Stockholm. With the Stockholm Card, a 7-11 coupon, and directions to a kebab shop, Stockholm is fascinating and inexpensive. Well, except the drink at the ICE BAR, but it is a must!

Good, pleasant environment. We stayed on the ship. It was very clean and furnished nicely. The only problem was that the wood floor is noisy. But still, highly recommended.

This is chillin' to the extreme. Cool surroundings and warm (as in friendly) atmosphere. A must for every tourist visiting Stockholm. Family-friendly, with children-sized coats. Part of the fun of the freeze is assisting the other amazed (or frozen) guests take photos. Remember, this is real ice, and it's around -4 C, and coats and some shoes are supplied. It's a great way to end a day or start a night out. The Ice Bar opens at 4pm and closes around 10pm.

I am obessed with writing postcards. Not only on my frequent journeys but almost daily, I sent cards from Heidelberg. It is a great way to keep in touch and be creative. I usually reserve the tourist cards for grandparents and others not fond of my humor. It is a long story... Anyway, I try to use free postcards from numerous restaurants and shops in most cities.

As of May 2005, all overseas postcards cost the same postage. Can you imagine the surprise when I pulled out small poster-sized postcards purchased at KortRex at the...Read More
