I'm glad you ended up tolerating Liseberg. I do think part of your dislike could also be the weather that day. I mean, we had such fabulous, cool weather the whole trip and then to show up to Sweden on their hottest day in like ever years was rough, especially towards the end of the trip.

Yes, it didn't help that Sweden felt more like Virginia that day (I had ice cream for lunch).

Yeah, I was really tired by this point, too. The whole "up early in Poland" thing was supposed to result in a mid-day nap in Sweden, but due to the flight snafu, I was just up for A Very Long Time the day before Liseberg. And, another fun side effect of my scoliosis is a complete inability to sleep when not fully and comfortably lying down--or, to put it another way, I can't sleep on planes or buses.

We also just encountered a lot of weird stuff in the morning at Liseberg that kind of put me off--but it recovered. Not my favorite park of the trip, but still at least "good."

"This is Pontus. I understand that his job at Liseberg is just dealing with coaster enthusiast groups. Which sounds like the kind of job you get assigned in hell to me, but he was awesome."

This is right up there with my all-time favorite captions in an Erik & Smisty trip report! :P

Just an aside, but I think both their names look so sweet on the front page of the site...

Erk & Smisty's... ;)

Part 5: Ships & Meatballs

While Holland was probably our favorite of the three countries we visited, Stockholm was our favorite city. After the official end of the TPR trip, we hung out there for three more days, doing Erik & Smisty stuff.

This is that.

Great stuff, I "learned" plenty of new "facts" from your captions.

Well, that's very nice to hear. But I for one am glad it's over. It took me a month! At least I can console myself that Chuck, Larry, and AJ are still on Holland parks.
