You and me both.  How long are you planning to be in Sweden?

Well first I need to procure tickets to the 8th, still working that out. 

I'm hoping to pop in on the 6th, hang out in Stockholm through the game, and then on the 9th, make my way up north in the morning, or maybe at least take a train to somewhere else for a day on the way up. 

Maybe 3-4 days up north and, if it's possible to check out Norway as well a little, I could scratch 2 countries off my list 🙂 so maybe 8-10 days total. Give or take a day

Nice.. I'm trying to piece together how long I will be there.  I figure once I've made the trip over I should maximize my time.  But... I don't have unlimited time to maximize nor the unlimited funds with which to maximize it.

We are going through the same process.

I understand, my gf will be going with me, so I'm kinda stuck with her time-line as well, but I won't know how much time until she tells me. 

Finding tickets at reasonable prices is tough, that's step 1

So, if you live in ET time zone, be aware it will be light outside equivalent from 2:20am to 10:40 am. 😳

Booked.  I will be in Sweden from Nov. 7 - 13.  (Leaving the 6th in the US).

I really, really wanted to travel to Kiruna and ultimately to Abisko.  I might still pull the trigger, but I will be paying a hotel in Stockholm those nights as well.

More likely, I travel closer to Stockholm and then try a return visit in the "near" future.

Sigh.. if only I could go for a few more days.

I have not yet ordered mine. I'm waiting on my friend to see what days he wants to go but i'm almost certain i will be doing the 5th until the 11th. (Fly out 5th, in Sweden on the 6th^)
