I’ve been kind of bad with keeping up with my trip on here. I’m leaving Budapest for Krakow this morning.
I just got back from buying a replacement suitcase. It’s a little bigger than the one I brought with me, although it’s not hardshell. The price was roughly $75.
I’m going to try and duck tape the other suitcase, but I don’t really expect it to work. However, maybe I can use it for some light weight things.
Here’s a suitcase problem that I never expected to encounter during this trip. I brought some duck tape with me, but i don’t think that will solve this problem.
I guess it’s an excuse to buy a bigger suitcase if I can find one at a decent price.
I am currently sitting on a train on my way to Stockholm as I write this.
This morning I boarded a 5:56 am train which left out of Oslo heading to Flemingsberg, Sweden. I will then change to a city train that will take me ahead into Stockholm.
Here are some photos I took today during a Hop On Hop Off tour.
It’s interesting that I travel all the way to Gothenburg, Sweden and on this Tuesday morning I turn the TV on to see Donald Trump making a guest appearance on a 1996 episode of The Nanny with Fran Drescher.
This is the hotel (Hotel Opera) where I’m spending Monday and Tuesday nights.
I have actually been in Gothenburg before. Forty years ago (1979) while serving in the Air Force in England at RAF Bentwaters, I caught an overnight ferry from Felixstowe, England to Gothenburg, Sweden. The day that I arrived in Gothenburg, there were posters everywhere stating that Abba was performing in concert in their arena. It was quite a treat to be one of probably only a few Americans to see Abba perform in their home country.
One of my great memories of the European Cold War era.
Bringing some water bottles was one of my best ideas for this trip.
