Flew from Austin to Chicago to London, UK to Copenhagen Denmark. My Sister and niece were at the Copenhagen Airport to receive me. Took the train to Almhult Sweden.

Almhult is home to the First IKEA Store in the World

Train Station Malmo, this is on my way back to Älmhult from Copenhagen. I had a round trip Ferry from Copenhagen to Oslo, Norway.

The pictures below are Hassleholm, Sweden.

Below -  Ishana (my Niece) and Sunny (brother in law) went to see Absolute Vodka factory, Ishana was along as she was promised McDonalds. Absolute factory was closed to visitors, we did a walking tour of the town.
