Hui Chin and I visited Sweden in 2003, when we took time out and visited a few countries in Europe including the Scandinavian countries with our Eurail Pass.

Lulea, by the Artic Circle was another place, that we didn't have much time to really explore, just a few hours waiting for our connection to Narvik.

Hui Chin and I had a quick look around and it was time to catch our train.

George and Mariana, the couple from Romania were there too, heading the same way.

We all came from Oslo to Kemi, Haparanda, Lulea and onto Narvik and onwards.
