We started our holiday with a flight from Heathrow Terminal 5, which was, contrary to what we had heard, really fantastic. Quick check in, and a fantastically designed building, where every last detail had been though of - recycling bins, infrared toilet flush/taps and even very comfortable chairs - all basic but important stuff. We flew to Stockholm which was just amazing and spent 2.5 days there. Then we got on a cruise ship for Copenhagen - just for a day, then back on the cruise ship to the UK - 6 days all in all. These are a few of my favourite pics from last week:
a suspension bridge at night (it was so dark, the exposure took ages, and camera shake set in)
The sea was so calm at some points that you could barely even see it
The Jewel of the Seas - the enormous ship we were sailing on!
waiting for us on our bed each evening was an animal made from towels
This embroidery was a very small part of something much bigger at Harwich International station
the back streets of the old town (or Gamla Stan in Swedish) in Stockholm
ceramic tiles, which were part of a shop front design in Stockholm - the shop was called 'PUB'
detail of ceramic tiles from 'PUB' shop
The sun setting over the sea - leaving Stockholm
Copenhagen canal side shops and boats
of course, I also made a few purchases whilst I was away - I accidentally found the Panduro Hobby shop in Copenhagen - all three floors of it. Will show those purchases next time...
