The last day in Sweden. Heading back to Luleå Station to catch the train back to Stockholm, where our plane back was waiting. On the way, we stopped in Gammelstad, the old church village of Luleå.
On the last full day in the north, we did a little sightseeing tour: the church in Piteå, Öjebyn (the old town of Piteå) and some driving around the countryside around Svensbyfjärden.
We went to sweden for a reason: the 80th birthday of Donald Knuth, the inventor of TeX and overall genius in computer programming.
On our way to Piteå we took the nightrain from Stockholm to Luleå. As we arrived there an hour before sunset (shortly after lunch), we decided to visit the local railway museum.
Day three in Sweden brought us to the Vasa museum. The Vasa was the biggest ship of the swedish marine, built to impress and to dominate the baltic sea during the 30 years war.
On the island of Djurgården in Stockholm lies the worlds oldest open-air museum, founded in 1891. It shows typical houses, dwellings, churches etc. from over five centuries, including museum employees in period correct clothing inside.
At the beginning of January I went on a polar expedition with a group of my friends – at least that is what a trip to swedish lappland in winter feels like. First stop on the voyage: Stockholm.
