At the end of the day, some of us decided to visit the Ice Bar. A unique experience. Before entering the Ice Bar, the patrons all have to put on heavy winter coats with big hoods to protect against the 19 degree cold. Stockholm, Sweden. On the SCANDINAVIAN TOUR. August 27, 2014.

A brilliant day for our return to the US. Great group, exciting food, incredible landscapes and lots of fun. Stay tuned for mid September’s FROM THE ALPS TO THE RHINE.
