Most regular readers know that one of the main reasons I got into the points and miles game was because of Sweden. I love this place even when it is kinda a rainy day and summertime is just stunning with the sun almost not going down in the southern half of the country and it not going down at all, for a while, in the north. Amazing.
This latest trip worked out just about perfect, and like most of my travels with Delta, was never fixed it place until it was all over. I started with a 125k SkyMiles award ticket (mostly on Virgin Atlantic) and then switched to a paid ticket (using a bump voucher) to earn MQMs. My Global Upgrades cleared both ways and I even ended up taking the largest one day bump I have ever had ($6,000 – yes please, Delta)!
But today I thought I would just share quickly why I so love visiting this stunning country and while my main reason for going is to see family, the location I visit is well worth a car ride to the airport, 3 flights, a bus (or UBER) ride, a train ride, a boat ride and a bit of a walk. Take a look and btw you can click any of the photos for a full screen slide show (and keep clicking them for next, next, next).
And I leave you with I think one of the most stunning and amazing photos I may have taken ever in my life. I happened to wake up just before 4AM one day with the house flooded with light as it always is this time of year. Everything outside was so still I had to go outside and was able to take the shot below. Gosh I love points and travel! – Rene
