A Visit to Sweden

We took a day trip to Sweden! I just loved the idea of taking a half-hour train ride to another country!

We first went to Lund-to see the historic university there (yes, that was DH's choice and you can see how delighted he was.)
Wandering about-into museums and churches- we saw this absolutely wonderful floor! Double wedding ring anybody? I'm thinking of giving drafting this a try.

Now I have seen lots of half-timbered buildings-in England, Denmark, France and Germany but this is the first time I have ever seen a half-timbered brick building! Brilliant!
Then it was on to Malmo...but it was getting late and cold so we just looked at the wonderful red and white lighthouse from afar. (Its right in the center-behind me! :)
And its back to Copenhagen. This was taken on the bridge through the not very clean train window.
