Hej! and Hei! : August means events in Uppsala, Stockholm, and Helsinki!

Beginning August 3, I’ll be in Scandinavia. My Swedish & Norwegian inlaws have given me a list of things to see, but you all know I’m completely fixated on the boats. Expect lots of photos of the Vasa & the harbors & more boats & more water, and from the events below too!
