We are back from Sweden!
Our weekend trip to Stockholm could not have been better. The boat Silja Symphony was really nice, with a good buffet (including real Spanish tortilla de patatas) and cozy cabins (not sure if that is the propper word).
During our time in the boat we were able to play in casino and win 58€ 😀 and to take a short and extreme walk outside. God it was windy outside!!
I found Stockholm to be a nice place with beautiful buildings. We enjoyed a healthy breakfast in a small café and walked around the old Gamla stan.
The most amazing thing was to visit in the palace after seen the guard change. The palace was incredibly well decorated with such a taste that I found myself with mouth open in almost every room. I cannot talk about all I saw there because it would be endless entry. But as a detail I will mention the incredibly big lamps and carpets.
After the palace we ate in a rather small restaurant ( small but good) and went back to the boat. We arrived in Helsinki on Monday.
What surprised me the most of this trip was the beauty of the sea at night. It looked like an endless black velvet cloth moving and shining under the moon glow. Wonderful!! No wonder why my father likes sea so much!
Anyway, it is Thursday today and we have more new things in home: carpets, chopping board and some boxes. I cannot wait for Christmas to come and get all decorations around.
