Day 1: Arriving to Stockholm
It was around 1:30am when I took a shower and was finally ready to go to bed. We were to leave to the airport at 3am to give ourselves plenty of time before our flight to Sweden, so I got up around 2:15am having slept for only 45 minutes. Klara and Laura were on a few minutes after while myself and Sylwia were bustling about. They seemed to be very excited and itching to move on. We packed up and set off to the airport as planned.

Here it is: the Baltic Sea. The place that had been in my memories since my early days. I’m closing my eyes and taking myself back to those days when as a young boy I used to spend the whole summers playing on its white beaches. It’s a small handful of experiences that made me feel happy.

Now, I’m coming back there after many years. I don’t know whether the area presents any interest at all for you, but if it does, let me take you with me and my family on our 6000 km long journey alongside its coastline.
