It was a different kind of sketching; it was more a diary of moments than a studing of the foreign architecture and landscapes.

|We were travelling from Zurich to Stockholm in one go: 24 hours (almost). This is where the train gets on the ferry to Denmark|
|And then, somewhere in the middle of sweden, we ate something, but hadn't the right tools with us...|
On the ship again the next day: Vaxholm is lovely, Ramsö is the only island, where the ships goes, since "its still winter"
|This is a bit mean: Marc was sleeping in the Bus back from Vaxholm|
|Välkommen! This is the view from a funny cafe on Djurgården Island, were we had a coffee.|
|Eating and drinking wonderful in the "gamla stan", the old town of Stockholm: Elk-goulash (lovely!) in the Sta. Clara Bierhaus.|
|Best thing at the Bierhaus: the cellar: Open Jam Session every wednesday, for the students. I had to be quick - the jazz was driving!|
|change of musicians|
|At the Restaurant in the "Skansen": Some little plants on the table and window ledge|
|We left Martina behind in Stockholm and took the ferry to Visby on Gotland. It was such a wonderfull day, the sky was blue and the sun was warm. We took a stroll around the old city wall, were i tried to catch the evening sun.|
|And again, trying to catch the shadows of the evening sun on the hilly terrain and the majestic city wall towers.|
No Sketches on the 11th...An elderly couple invited us to show us around their home-island: Fårö, in the north of Gotland. Such wonderful Landscapes!! But it was a thight day, and I couldn't sketch - i did so in my mind!
|A lovely little Crêperie in an wonderful little house in the old part of Visby. The inside was completly painted white/gray, everything was made of wood and the crêpes were delightfull!|
|And then, at 4 P.M. the ferry MS Visby took off - the 15 minutes before i drew the view through the bended windows on to the harbour buildings.|
|On the train from Kalmar, where we only stayed the night, i did some color sketches of some views i encountered in sweden.|
|This is already in Hamburg, were we had 4 hours between trains, in the night train back to zurich...the thought bubble is an insider...|
