I didn't sleep much last night - the bed was very comfortable, but I still had a really hard time falling asleep. Woke up several times. At one point, I checked my phone and saw it was a bit under an hour until I had set my alarm. Checked aetherspoon
's flight status and it said "arriving in 22 minutes" so I had to hurry up and shower, get dressed, etc.
Turns out I didn't have to rush quite that much, because I still had to wait a while at the arrivals gate. Unloading a plane that size takes a while, waiting for baggage takes a while..
We went straight to the hotel there aetherspoon
had a much needed shower, rested for a little bit and then headed down to the hotel's breakfast buffet. Mmmm, food.
We've walked around a bit, taken a two-hour nap, found out the TV in our room wasn't working and gotten that fixed, gone out for sushi, booked our train from Stockholm to Lidköping, hotel in Lidköping for part of our time there - first choice for hotel wasn't available for quite as long as I want to stay there, and we want to avoid traveling on a weekend. Will probably try to go straight from Lidköping to Kalmar in one day to cut down on the number of days spent traveling.
We've also altered our reservation for our current hotel to end a night earlier so we get to actually spend some time in Stockholm itself, rather than being holed up out here at the airport. I haven't been to Stockholm since I was 13.. I wonder if I will recognize anything at all.
