I am cruising through the Stockholm archipelago, on my way to Helsinki. My word selection in the previous sentence was deliberate — I am on a Viking Line cruise ship! My EUrail pass covers a shipping line from Stockholm to Finland, but it also gives massive discounts on this cruise. I only paid $40 for a bed in a cabin I am sharing with a French dude. Also, I just booked my ticket to Beijing — I had many choices for my layover and I went with Cairo. It is a longer and more expensive ticket than the one via Brussels, but the people watching will be much more interesting. Also, I selected the ‘Muslim’ special option for my meals. I am hoping they reward me for this with something tasty! Regardless, it will be interesting.

I had a spectacular time with my Swedish friends from Stanford: Robert, Erik and Andrea. Highlights included the vasa museum and homemade elk burgers. The Stockholm archipelago is gorgeous.
