A Travellerspoint blog

From Washington to Stockholm

My First Trip to Europe!

"Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends." - Maya Angelou

I am very excited for my first trip to Europe. This is a very special trip because as most of you know I have fallen in love with a Swede (Joakim, aka J, aka, Sotnos, aka so many other names that I will not share at this time...)! Therefore, this first trip is even more exciting because I will meet J's family, see the town of Maristad - where Joakim is from, and visit Stockholm! Needless to say I am very excited because to top it all off J has gotten us tickets to see Stevie Wonder in Stockholm!

This is my first trip to Europe, but Joakim has spent the past several years travelling around the world (for work and for fun)! There are so many places that we plan to visit, many are places that J wants to share with me and many are places that we will explore for the first time together.

This blog will document the next chapter of our life together as we travel around the world discovering new people, new places and new cultures, and it will consists of stories and photos of the things we most appreciate including: architecture, art, history, food & wine, music och waterways! We also hope this blog will be the best way to share our sojourns with our friends & family who are sprinkled around the world!

Please enjoy!

Puss och Kram (Hugs and Kisses)
