Vacation summary

It's time to sum up this year's Scandinavian vacation. Last day today.
Bags are getting packed, the DS, PSP and other gadgets are getting charged and we are all gearing up for our long trip.

It's kind of lovely to think back because it's been some pretty packed six weeks with lots of fun things to remember!
After last years holiday, we did some thinking and tried to plan this year differently, so we would actually be relaxed and rested after it, instead of even more tired! Last year, we trained around everywhere, and visited six (!) big amusement parks. Fun yes, but slightly exhausting too!

It made a big difference to our holiday to have cars to our disposal both in Denmark and in Sweden. It also made it more relaxed to have made up a travel plan already before coming, and mostly stick to that. That meant less decisions to make on the trip itself.

I want to send a huge Thank You to all our friends who opened up their homes to us, we really enjoyed visiting you all and feel very privileged having so many good friends up here in Scandiland!
So Thank You to Claudia, Vivien & Linn; Thank You to Dorte, Lars, Lukas, Anna & Magnus; Thank You Thomas, Signe, Mikkeline & Konrad; Thank You Anne, Frederik, Malthe, Daniel & Ida; Thank You Fredrik, Eva, Tilda & Emma; Thank You Jens, Karin, Max & Tilde and Thank You Sam, Kicki, Maya, Charlie & Jack.
