Day 33-34: Stockholm, Sweden

The changing of the guard. They do it in Sweden too.

KPMG in Sweden....good times.

If they can give a million dollars to each Nobel Laureate, you'd think they be able to scrape together a few million to host the Nobel Prize ceremony in a nicer place. Or maybe we're just bitter that it cost $15 each to go inside.

Klarakirke. Veddy nice.

Seeing a bison in our third country this trip, we hereby declare it as our official Troggeymoon mascot. Woohoo!!!

You're supposed to be able to see seals in this tank at Skansen, aka 'Wee SWeeden.'

A volunteer folk dancing group at Wee SWeeden. They don't even get paid to dress like this. Oh snap!

Wee SWeeden + flowers with a lot of pollen = random India-like picture?

Day 31-32: Copenhagen, Denmark

Amelienborg Palace and the Marmorkirke (Marble Church, nothing to do with MarMar).

Fresca commercial?

"What would I give if I could live outta these waters? What would I pay to spend a day warm on the sand?" Anybody?

Hey Mom, Norwegian burnt almonds in Denmark!

St. Albans Kirke.

Library Garden at Christiansborg Palace.

Sometimes being adventurous doesn't pay off. Exhibit A: Buying Karrysalat. It's actually soupy macaroni salad with a lot of curry powder packaged over a month ago. Does that sound good? We learned there's never a point where you're hungry enough to eat this stuff.

Day 30: Home to Calgary to London...never again

Do we look like we got up at 4:45 AM to go to the airport?

The Calgary Tower. The excitement on our faces is equivolent to the to the ugliness of this concrete monstrosity.

Day 25-29: Home again

5,032 miles...

and 15,320,000,000 dead bugs later. Doing our part to keep the insect population down across America.

Stay tuned for Northern and Eastern Europe!

Day 24: Oregon Caves & Crater Lake

Oregon Caves.

Sigourney Weaver should be showing up any moment now...

..or Indiana Jones...
...or William Shatner...

...or the Goonies...

...I've got nothing for this one.

Some lake.
Some lake with us in front of it.
Reasons 1 through 1,000,000,000 why we didn't camp there. These are clouds of freakin' mosquitoes.

Day 23: Redwood National Park

Fern Canyon.

Where's Marty? Hint: He's the fern wearing shoes.

Big tree.

What's the opposite of a bird's eye view?

I wish I'd taken a video, because this was AWESOME!!!x5

Does the trail really go up here?

Defending our lunch from evil Bluejays.

Day 22: ???

Wanna know where day 22 went? So do we!!! 450+ miles later we were in...

Day 20-21: Yosemite National Park

This Sequoia's actually taller than Marty, if you can believe it.

An American Black bear and her cub...which happen to be brown. Blame the pioneers for that one.

Sunset at Glacier Point.
Ansel Adams took his famous photographs here. Can we get $50 for this picture?

Showers are hard to come by in Yosemite, so you take what you can get.

I'm not sure this is the easiest route...
...but the view was worth it.

Who besides homeless people cook on the side of the road?

Bidding farewell to our campsite...

Day 18-19: San Francisco

The New Tacoma Narrows. The Sun gives it a Burn so it appears red, almost like the Golden Gate Bridge. Then we won $50.

Aw cute! Getting your kids picture taken with a homeless guy in front of the Ghiradelli factory!


Stepping foot into Ross Alley in Chinatown. Then we got mugged...

...and sent to Alcatraz.

Marty wasn't an Indian...

...but Leah was.
