Baltic Sea Change

Goodbye Budapest. Goodbye to traveling alone. Goodbye to bunk beds and security lockers and sweaty nights without climate control and lines for the bathroom.

Goodbye to complete independence. Goodbye to the privileges and pressures of setting my own itinerary every minute of every day. Goodbye to one kind of irresponsibility, and hello to another.

Hello Stockholm. Hello family!

Hello to free little shampoos in clean showers, to Mom and Dad treating to nice meals, to pre-arranged plans and snap-happy photographers. Hello to safety in numbers and someone to watch my bag while I go to the bathroom and people to talk with at every meal.

Hello to the Crystal Symphony.

Hello comfort. Hello luxury. Hello family. Nice to have you back.

And helloooo assortment of pickled herring!

Location:Stockholm, Sweden
