Great photos that bought back a lot of happy memories - spent a summer in Sweden and Norway in the late 90s. I think I even managed to spot our Gothenburg hotel (Eggers) in your pics.

Nice pics! I live on the West coast of Sweden and haven't had the opportunity to visit half the places in your album. I better get busy as there is so much more to see here than my own back yard.
