While (im)patiently waiting for my order confirmation, I've been working on an itinerary for the upcoming family OSD trip. Trusting that my requested delivery date will be confirmed, here are my thoughts:
Sunday, March 24 - Arrive & Volvo dinner.
Mon- Volvo delivery, factory & museum tour. Drive north toward Lacko Apparently, this is Waffle Day. Seems to be a big thing in Sweden? any thoughts??
Tues- Lacko to Oslo. Considered Scandic Byporten hotel after searching for accommodations that meet the criteria - sleeps 4, near rail station, garage parking.
Wed- Rail to Bergen w. fjord tour (the pics I have seen of the scenery really make me want to risk a 7 hour train trip with 2 kids) overnight in Bergen.
Thurs- Bergen & flight back to Oslo. (Cant put my kids & wife through another long travel day.) Board night ferry to Fredrickshavn Denmark. It's my birthday!
Fri- To Billund for Lego House. Overnight there.
Sat- It's a toss-up here. - Best I can tell, this may be opening day for Legoland. Kids would love it but I know that is something we can do stateside. Alternatively, head towards copenhagen. I don't have any plans for Copenhagen but want to make the Oresund bridge part of the journey.
Sun. - Head back towards Gothenburg. Overnight back in Got.
Mon - Return to FDC in a.m. & catch a flight.
Had thoughts of doing a castle stay overnight somewhere. Anyone have suggestions?
