Stockholm is a wonderful city on the water. It is the gateway to the Stockholm archipeligo with over 30,000 islands in the Baltic Sea. The old town is a labyrinth of quaint cobblestoned streets with charming cafes and shops as well as the famed cathedral and palace. Stockholm is very accessible by bike with many green areas.

Sollentuna is a northern suburb of Stockholm. There is a quick suburban train that takes only 15 minutes from Sollentuna station into Stockholm city. There is a good bus and underground transport system too. Within Sollentuna itself are a number of lakes and a nature reserve for good walks and biking. We have a ladies and mens bike that you are free to borrow. Sollentuna is on the motorway E4 that runs right up to the north of Sweden. Stockholm has an extremely good ferry system to Finland and to the Åland islands in the Baltic. The Stockholm archipelago has 30,000 beautiful islands and there is a ferry service to the larger ones. Even bikes can be taken on the ferries. Maps and tourist information provided.

The map marker is a general indicator of the local area only.

We are an international couple married in 1975 and still going strong! Sue is from Australia and Kjell is from Sweden. We have three adult children and six grandchildren. Two live in Sweden and one in India with his family. We have worked in various countries in Asia with aid and development through various Christian organisations and missions. We are active in our local Lutheran church. Sue is a tour guide with a Swedish travel agent and takes a group of Swedes to Australia every year. We enjoy active outdoor activities such as cycling, walking and canoeing in the summer and skiing and skating in the winter. We also enjoy travelling and particularly like to return to Australia every 3 years or so to enable Sue to keep up contacts with her friends and Canada where Sue's sister lives.
