The day we leave NYC is always such a thrilling day; the trip awaits in hope and excitement. We are anticipating less pleasant weather in Tromso than they usually have this time of year, if the current weather forecast holds. We are hoping things work out in Stockholm so we can leave the airport during our long layover and take a walking tour of the old town and eat at the famous herring wagon:
the old town, which requires a trip on a bullet train from the airport
even I will eat herring...I think....
It's going to be 80 degrees in Stockholm, lovely weather for a walkabout. Our coats and rain gear are packed on top in our suitcases, so when we arrive in Tromso we can grab them easily.
