Our first thoughts for this day were “had we woken in Muskoka?”
Perhaps we should explain...While the ship wasn’t expected to dock in Stockholm until 9:30am, we had been told that the ship would be travelling through the Stockholm archipelago (Stockholms skärgård) starting very early in the morning. The archipelago consists of something like 30,000 islands and islets, and as we woke and opened the curtains in our room we marvelled at how much this looked like Ontario’s own Muskoka area as the ship navigated the cottage filled islands. The trip was not a nice straight sail, with Azamara Journey having to turn often to make its way through the shipping lane. Some of the islands we got to see up close and personal - surprisingly close. We stood on our veranda for a while watching the pleasant scenery pass by interrupted only by getting ready for the day - the first of two in Sweden’s capital city.
