more than two years ago, when david and i had been dating for less than a week, we got together with our friends steve and melissa one afternoon. somehow the conversation turned to travel -- travel to sweden, in particular. i told them i would love to go back sometime, and david said that, despite his full-blooded swedish heritage, he has never been. neither melissa nor steve has been, either, and melissa suggested that we all go, and that i be their tour guide.
initially, i laughed. i haven't been to sweden in 14 years, not since i was on a choir tour for two weeks. granted, i had studied there for six months during the winter prior to that tour, but it's been 14 years. what good would i be as a tour guide? and yet, it would be a trip to sweden. we agreed we would plan for sweden 2008!
last night, we met to discuss timing and an incredible offer for lodging that we simply can not pass up. so, we are going to sweden for ten days in july 2008! ja sure, you betcha!
i have a feeling i'm going to be frequenting sites like these over the next few months.
