Scandinavia 2015
As the Facebook people know, tomorrow I am off to Copenhagen, Stockholm, and several other places in their countries.  I am 90% packed. My electronics are charging.  I've only minor things left to do like purchase a couple more ebooks to load up on my reader (I'm not sure my ebook stores will sell if my IP is not American) and get some emergency cash to bring with.

I'm bringing my laptop, so I will be updating Facebook and possibly here.  Photos may wait until I return to get posted, depending on down time and internet speeds.

Little known fact about me: traveling anywhere alone except the US and Canada scares the hell out of me.  I'm sure I'll be fine, but I am still filled with dread.

"except the US and Canada"

So why shouldn't those two places fill you with dread?

Because i'm pretty adept at negotiating English signage. Notvso good at other languages. Case in point, ive wasted an hour today because i took the wrong train twice.

Or today, where i couldnt figure out how to get my nav system to show anything except a high level map. While driving in the city center with no place to pull over to figure it out. Having a second person to navigate and/or just keep an eye out for a place to pull over so we could figure it out.

Overall i enjoy the trip, but i dread dealing with these things on my own.
