It is hard to believe that was just 4 months ago. What a great trip. I came home with most of the money I took and a few extra pounds because so many meals were provided!

^ I know! And I'm still trying to get over (not really) China two years ago, and last year in Japan.
Unfortunately, most of my money did not come home with me. lol. But that was okay. And
I stayed about the same weight-wise, until I got back home. Then, I lost some weight!

Life goes on. :wink:

Scandi Tour SOUVENIRS!

Every tour I do, brings home several 'additions' to the household. I rarely go for stuff that serves no purpose,
other than to sit on a table of a shelf somewhere. Most souvenirs I get, I try to get useful ones, like coffee
mugs, a towel, candy (yum), that sort of stuff.

But I do pick up from time to time, things that just beg to be bought. Yeah, I'm that easy, heh.

Here's some of what i picked up along the way...

My t-shirts. And we got a free one at Djurs Sommerland, too! There's also a couple of tour shirts there,
one from Sarkanniemi (Birds Land), one from Tivoli, one from Tusenfryd... and Helix. (o:

This was my favourite (bought) shirt on the tour. And 1883 is the year Grona Lund opened!

Mugs, drink cups, and even bottles figure into my usual assortment of things to bring home.

Close up on the drink containers, including my first (at that time) Coke "Name" bottles.
Hadn't seen them until this tour. Now, they're everywhere, including at home.

Stuff to (mostly) eat, including lots of candy and leftover goody bag treats.

I bought this at Tysenfryd, then gave it to a friend on her musical show's opening night.
So - much - marshmallow!
Resize of IMG_6167.JPG
When I fist saw these (at Djurs Sommerland) I laughed out loud. And bought them of course!
And after having both, the sweeter liquorice was more to my liking than the salty.

Personal products, like soap, a towel from Skara Sommerland, even a Liseberg-branded pack of wetnaps!

Some pins, a couple of fridge magnets, a few toys. And one music CD from Farup Sommerland.

Wait. What's that glowing in there?...

Here's two more videos of light-up stuff I bought on the tour,
specifically on the overnight ferry, from Stockholm to Helsinki.
They were all bought in a children's toy store, at the front cashier.
And while the glasses did look a lot like shooter glasses, that's ok.

Here's the light up "ice cubes" being tested out...

Bill, did you have to take a spare set of luggage for your souvenirs? :lmao:

You picked up an awesome collection! That salty licorice is a LOT of fun to prank people with, especially people that love the normal stuff. I bought some online for my mom. Her face: PRICELESS. :lmao:

^ LOL nope. :wink: Not for this tour. I have gotten rather good at packing what I pick up along the way, without having to deal with an extra bag, etc. That said, I have in the past (hello Tokyo Disney Resort!) put a lot of stuff into a 2nd carry on bag, which so far, every airline I have ridden has allowed me to do. But that's rare for me.

So with that, here's the rest of what I picked up on the tour....

This was the tour for lanyards, passes and medals! Along with the one we usually get on a TPR tour, Grona Lund and Djurs Sommerland gave us VIP passes and lanyards into their parks. And then there's that AWESOME TPR Grand Prix medal we got at Power Park.
Resize of IMG_6175.JPG
A little snow globe from Sarkanniemi park, bought in the Dolphin Show gift shop.
Resize of IMG_6177.JPG
See? It works! (o;
Resize of IMG_6179.JPG
Tags on my TPR bag - Liseberg/Helix dog tags; Bon Bon Land's farting dog that's a little flashlight (and no, not out "that" end, sadly); and a smart little souvenir from Sarkanniemi that holds a generic coin, used to get your shopping cart. Brilliant! Doesn't work over here, sadly.
Resize of IMG_6180.JPG
PowerPark; Linnanmaki (on 'wood'); and a Djurs Sommerland pirate. Arrrrrr.
Resize of IMG_6183.JPG
And these are all on the new, awesome TPR bag we got for the tour! With a side
holding net for bottles, too! Thank you Elissa and Robb for this!
Resize of IMG_6184.JPG
Two caps. One free (thank you Hansa Park), the other I bought at our bonus park, Sommerland Sjaelland.
Resize of IMG_6186.JPG
A neat "t-shirt" tag I found at Linnanmaki Park It has all of Finland's cities on it! And a couple of pins.
One I found (ACDC woo hoo!) and one for a Liseberg coaster I really, really enjoyed!
Resize of IMG_6189.JPG
And they're on the new vest I bought in the mall where Fun Park (and a bonus credit) was.
Resize of IMG_6190.JPG
I got into some of my candy exchange stuff immediately, when I got home. This variation on the Kinder Egg was interesting. Like pudding. Don't remember if there was a toy with it, or not.
Resize of IMG_6192.JPG
And Duty Free to bring home! Three Iceland liqueurs from the Reykjavik airport.
Resize of IMG_6193.JPG
The flavours are: Rhubarb; Crowberry (crowberry?); and Blueberry.
Resize of IMG_6202.JPG
The Skara Sommerland towel, draped over the guest room bed.
Resize of IMG_6203.JPG
Wait! What's there on the bed?
Resize of IMG_6205.JPG
Aha! these souvenirs are all Stella-approved, lol!

The Twister shot.

I think she and I bonded during this run. Awesome coaster!

This shot was taken by Hanno, at Tusenfryd on their Super Splash coaster. I love my OMG expression on it, just before getting drenched. Great shot Hanno, thanks!
Resize of IMG_6228a.JPG
After that, I dried up as best I could, then got myself a mug shot, Viking style.
Resize of IMG_6230.JPG
Not an on ride shot. More of an "on ferry shot". I liked it! This was taken as we went on board our overnight ferry, from Stockholm to Helsinki.
