Day 12: Stockholm
We were at the harbour early to board our cruise-ferry back to Stockholm. Standing with my elder daughter - Laura - on the sun deck, and letting a gentle breeze blow over our faces, I realized how extraordinary lucky we were to have seen this lovely land, still unmarked by human ambitions. In the silver-grey glow of the morning light the Åland Islands looked surreal.

At 9am, Viking Line’s Cinderella began its voyage. Soon, we entered the Stockholm Archipelago and progressed at an unhurried peace through the network of breathtakingly spectacular small islands. We had good few hours to take in the passing sceneries, allowing our eyes to look out over the beautiful vistas and nature to wave its magic on my soul. It felt as a quintessence of the entire adventure.

A head of traffic built up as the boat was getting closer to its destination. And finally, another terrific panorama unfolded - a skyline of Stockholm, one of the most unforgettable views one could wish for.

Travelling around the Baltic Sea ensured our path also crossed with some great people, so at the end of the day, we treated ourselves to a meeting with Ryszard, the owner of szwecja.net portal, where the articles from our project have been published for last five years. We drunk some green tea and coffee in one of the cafeterias swapping stories exhilarated by the intensity and quality of what we've accomplished.
