Final Day in Stockholm + Back in Seattle

Last Day 😦
Unfortunately it took us until noon to finish packing the tandem and the rest of baggage, but we finally made it to Skansen, the open-air folk museum. We spent the last afternoon learning how to make linen, felt and sap, visiting a collection of Scandinavian animals including European bison, grizzly bears and reindeer. Finally we caught the midnight train to the airport for a few Zzzs before our morning flight.

The furniture factory at Skansen. A informative stop. We sniffed a bunch of glue - fish and horse.

Making felt from wool at Skansen. The mill wheel acts like a giant old-fashioned music box with protrusions on the turning wheel picking up and dropping the wood pounding blocks as it turns.

Back in Seattle
Thanks Steffen+Audrey and Mike+Steph for letting us stay with them on our week and half back! Friends, it was great to see you guys! We don’t need to cook ribs for awhile now. :). We’re headed out on our roadtrip to New York and back.
