In July, that is...
We've been wanting to travel to see my sister and her family in Stockholm for years. She really wants us to come and leaned on us pretty heavy this year. Well, today we found a great flight from Toronto to Stockholm through Reykjavík. It's actually the most direct (and cheapest) flight we could find.

Too bad you're not going in February. Sammy Lind and Caleb Klauder from Foghorn Stringband are heading over there for a short tour. They'll be hitting Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Ireland. I guess there's no telling where old time music might take you! Cheers, Scott

I'd sure love to go with you. Have a good time! Make sure you arrange to have a banjo when you get there.

I've flown to Germany and Norway a few times via Iceland Air and have never had any complaints. If you have the time, I recommend looking into the possibility to stay over in Iceland a couple of days and do a bit of sightseeing. It is a fascinating country. The airport (Keflavik) is 50 kilometers from Reykjavik, so you won't have opportunity to see much out of the Keflavik's windows. I doubt you will be disappointed with the service you get through Island Air, and the price is usually much better than other airlines. Be prepared for a jolt when you see the prices overseas, especially with the dollar sinking so low against the foreign currencies. You probably have already checked out all the interesting things to see and places to go while you are there. Stockholm is a very interesting city with its layout and uniqueness. Be sure to take a tour through City Hall, which among other interesting things is where the Nobel Prize is awarded. Check out the ship Vasa ship museum. The ship sunk on its maiden voyage and is on display in a building there. It is called Vasamuseet. They do have a Hard Rock Cafe in Stockholm, but I don't remember seeing any banjos there :-) Good luck on your travels!
