Stopped by one more VW dealer on the way to the airport. Only a mk8 GTE in the show room. Really wanted to see a MK7/7.5 CSS or TCR. It was cool the dealer had classic VWs in their showroom. I also wish we had the 5 door RS3 in NA. Love that car.
Back in Stockholm for the weekend. Went to the Vasa Museum this morning. Super interesting and photos don’t do it justice. This thing is huge!

Thanks for all the advice on what to see and where to go.
We made it to Västervik today with a visit in route to an old mine shaft.
I was claustrophobic as hell as a child but I managed this without feeling overwhelmed.
Västervik is a beautiful old town. I walked until it got dark and had the...
My wife would disagree.
Ah ok. The Cadiz through me off.
Germany is on my list one day as that is where my fathers family hails from.
While walking last night we came across This old street which reminds me of Diagon Alley from Harry Potter. I wish I had a real camera here with me.
