After a spectacular drive from Sweden we arrived in Narvik in northern Norway. A picturesque town nestled deep in the surrounding fjords whose major attraction was a rather good war museum dedicated to the battle of Narvik and it's 5 year occupation by the Nazis.
Rural Sweden, while pleasant, was a tad boring so we looked forward to notching it up a gear in Stockholm. The first stop at the Vasa Museum didn't sound like much but we were amazed at just how first class this exhibition was. This 64-gun warship sank on her maiden voyage in 1628 and was raised almost fully intact in the 1960's.
