So nice catching up with Becca after all this time. She has grown up and become such a lovely young woman!

March looks like it will be a very good month. Becca, the oldest girl I looked after when I was an au pair in Boston back in 1999/2000 is coming to Stockholm for a visit. She’s currently studying a semester in Spain and was able to book a weekend in Stockholm to catch up with her old Swedish au pairs (she had four more after me). Her sister Molly was over in 2010 (HERE) but I haven’t seen Becca since 2005 when I was over visiting the family for Becca’s Bat Mitzvah so I’m really excited about catching up with her.
I’m working on uploading the photos from the Sweden part of the holiday but until that’s done here is a sneak peak.

I’m a bit tired today after a great but intense weekend in Stockholm. I took the train up straight after work on Thursday and was met at the Central Station by Molly, Sabina, Camilla & Sanna. Great seeing Molly again, as I’ve told you before it was over 5 years since last. Must have looked pretty funny when we were standing there, four blond Swedish girls and Molly 😛 Since it was kind of late (just before 9 pm) we went straight home to Sabina’s apartment were Molly stayed and also were I was going to sleep. We went online and video chatted with Ann and Becca for almost an hour and a half I think. Haven’t spoken to them either since 2005 so that was a treat in itself. Poor Becca sat with an ice pack on each cheek since she just had her wisdom teeth removed.
The Friday was the big day, the only day when all of us could be spend the day with Molly. We got ready and met up with Linda (who came down for the day with her family) and Camilla. We had decided earlier that we were going to go sightseeing on one of the Hop-on Hop-off boat tours so we did. Started off by making a quick visit to the Royal Palace and watched the change of guards. A lot warmer than when Simon did that in January this year and it was around -16 degrees. 🙂 We then continued to Nybroplan and had lunch at a nice café. Read more
I’m just sitting on the train on my way back to Jönköping from Stockholm. Been a couple of intense work days but the weather yesterday was so nice I almost forgot I was there in business not in pleasure. It was a bummer thought that the AC in the office (which has huge glass windows EVERYWHERE, was broken so it was very hot in the conference room). Went to a place called Fåfängan today for lunch and the view of the city from up there was really nice:
