Trip Report In Pursuit of Vikings, Fjords and Cooler Weather, thursdaysd Goes North

Jump to last reply

Since I can choose when I travel, I rarely choose to do so in July and August when I expect the crowds and the northern hemisphere heat to be at their worst. But I live in the US, and when my niece announced wedding plans in England for the end of August, I decided it was finally time to visit Scandinavia, where I could at least hope for cooler weather. Like most of my trips, though, this one grew, in several directions. I left home for Boston on July 10th, and will fly back from Barcelona on Halloween.

Although I have been traveling for a couple of weeks already, as yet there have been no Vikings, no fjords, and precious little cool weather, as I have stopped off in Boston, Potsdam and Berlin, and have three more north German towns to go before Copenhagen. I have not put up a TR for Boston on Fodors, but I have blogged it. You can find those posts, and photographs to go with the text I'll be posting here, on my blog:

You'll also find a "Getting There" post, with my new travel rule: do not connect through Heathrow!

Before I left on this trip I participated in a thread on this board on whether AC was needed in Berlin in the summer. I thought at the time that the fanatical anti-AC poster was nuts. I now know he is nuts.
