Three Days in Stockholm (Nordics Part II)

After a week in Montreux, we are off to Stockholm. The second of five cities we visited in March.

Getting to the Airport

Seldom making it to post, let me share our hectic travel day. Transport to the airport took double the time. We always take the train, but someone coordinated a car for us - the driver ended up driving on the shoulder for about half of the trip.  Weaving in and out of traffic.  Later we learned this was all due to the Geneva Auto Show.  We arrived at the airport 60 minutes before take off.

After passing through Customs, we are separated getting through Security.  Flying on a partner airline that does not recognize 'travel companion,' Bill was through security in two minutes, waiting.  It would take me at least an hour.  Then I saw several passing the line due to flights boarding, and I followed them (it was worth a try, right?).
