Saying Goodbye to Swedein

This morning we pretty much just had to pack up and head to the airport. It was a beautiful morning!
The early morning (8am) sunrise cast a beautiful light on the old town.
By the time we got to the airport that beautiful clear sky had turned gray and was dumping big fluffy snow flakes. It was really beautiful.

So on day one we went to the grocery store and bought a package of noodles. We have basically subsisted on those each night. We decided to finish them off today, so we brought them in a plastic bag and had the rest of our pesto on one side with soy sauce we found in the airport on the other was actually pretty tasty, but looks manky.

The last time it snowed was about a month ago, and not a bit of that had melted, so today's snow just added on top of last months. Apparently this is the first time in 15 years that they have had a proper snowy winter with ice on the water and all.....that make for the complete Sweden experience, so I am glad we had snow.

By the time we got back in to London it was about 7pm, time to have some real food....the noodles had worn off by this time so we decided to celebrate our last night together going to our favorite cheap pub Wetherspoons.
I am going to miss Hannah a ton (she is going to Morocco in the morning). She has been such a life saver and we have had so much fun together (as manifested by this trip). But she has promised to come to San Diego, so we'll see if she keeps that promise. Sure hope so!
