On our way to Stockholm via the Swedish archipelago

In the middle of the night, Celebrity Constellation entered the Swedish archipelago. This is a string of islands from the open Baltic Sea up to the capital Stockholm. Crossing this beautiful nature reserve takes about 4,5 hours one way. Even at night, the sun was already up and shining brightly. It only becomes dark for a few hours a day during this time of the year. It was a relaxing journey to the capital of Sweden and we were already up at 4 in the morning.

In het midden van de nacht vaarde de Celebrity Constellation door de Zweedse archipel. Dit is een groep eilandjes en natuur van aan de monding van de Baltische zee tot aan Stockholm. Het doorkruisen van dit natuurgebied duurt ongeveer 4,5 uur in iedere richting. Zelfs ’s nachts was de zon reeds op en baadde alles in het licht. Deze tijd van het jaar wordt het slechts enkele uren per dag donker. Het was een rustige vaart naar de hoofdstad van Zweden maar we waren reeds op om 4 uur in de ochtend..

  11. What a beautiful place with enormous homes! It's neat to live in a place with the sun shining 24 hours a day, but the winters are no fun covered in darkness.

  23. these are all lovely, and it looks as if you and Kristel have been having a lovely cruise. The one building almost looks like a windmill without the windmill on it. What is this building used for? Do you know? sorry to overwhelm you with comments, but am behind as I was out of town, then had a busy week at work.
