We took a wonderful family trip earlier this summer. Here are a few pictures of Stockholm, Copenhagen and London. The Nordic Museum and the Vasa Museum were two of my favorite places to visit while we were in Stockholm.
The Vasa is a historic ship that sank on her maiden voyage in 1628 and was raised in 1961. A museum was built to house the ship, and it is incredible to see in person.
I love the traditional architecture in Stockholm’s old town.
It was interesting to see similar architecture in Copenhagen.
Copenhagen is an amazing city with a wonderful combination of traditional European and modern architecture.
It was a bit dreary and chilly while we were in London, but towards the end of the trip we saw the sun.
I love to read about British history, seeing the Tower of London was fascinating & my kids were spooked!
Some of the beautiful town homes remind me of the upper east side in NYC where I used to live.
This one is my favorite and is so charming!
I loved the Churchill Arms, maybe I’ll be in charge of the flowers in my next go-around.
It’s right near the US Embassy and is the best shop for china I’ve ever been to!
Westminster Abbey is beautiful, but
St. Paul’s Cathedral literally brought me to tears. I was so overwhelmed by how beautiful it is. This is the website where this photo is from and there is interesting information on the church.
We had a really amazing and special trip. It’s back to school tomorrow!
