Sweden 2015 Part 1

Well I have been away from my blog for awhile now.  So to get back into writing again I will post some of my photos and experiences from my trip to Sweden.  In the 3 weeks I was there I visited Stockholm, Uppsala, Nyköping, Vasterås and Härnösand.  Also took a side trip to Helsinki, Finland.  Sweden is one of the most beautiful countries I have visited and I was so lucky to meet up with family to get the inside track on things and avoid the really touristy stuff.  Although I did do a bit of that as well.  Landed in Stockholm on May 1st and spent the first few days recovering from jet lag.  Made it to Gamla Stan on Day 1 to see where Johan Clason (my 6th great grandfather) had his first business.  On the way I passed by the corner where Johan first worked.  Very different from the early 1700’s but I did get a picture of the street signs on the exact corner.
