Blast From the Past Travelogue: Paris, day 1 — October 2010

December 8, 2010

Blast From the Past Travelogue: Stockholm- September 2010

November 14, 2010

Choosing to stay in Stockholm was kind of random on my part.  All I’d ever really heard of it was that it is a beautiful city.  And it certainly doesn’t disappoint.  The city is made up of little islands and the architecture is next to none that I’ve seen so far.  Granted, come 2 weeks […]
