Xana: Thank you! My first choice was the photo on Stockholm by Plenty, but I changed my mind "at the publishing moment".

Photolicious: No, this is where they work. Being a modern family the King and Queen moved out to the country when the children arrived. They live at Drottningholm palace just outside Stockholm.

I ask for more pics about Gamla Stan, such a lovely place. Summer nights were fabulous there in 1967.
"La Ronde" used to be a good french restaurang. I spent some hours looking after Bernadotte in this palace.

Deslilas: Thanks for reminding us, the Old Town is truly unique and we do have more coming up so stay tuned.

Everyone, keep those wishes and suggestions coming!
