It all started with the winning of 2 first class Continental RTW tickets from the American Express Wishlist way back in 2007 equivalently delivered with 560K miles. 6 years later with the merger of United and Continental, topping off the account to 700K miles with credit card offers, and a planned Leave of Absence from work, this trip is actually taking place starting 4/3/2013 and ending 6/28/2013.

It is quite funny to think that tomorrow will be the 87th day of our travels and although we are looking forward to our United Global First Class flight home, neither of us are sick of travelling. This trip has truly been amazing and I really urge anyone thinking of taking extended time to travel to just do it. It will change your perspective on many things and you'll get a wonderful feel for what the world's different cultures are like. We chose to spend more nights in most places than I think others would do, and even if you get to a point of exhausting the tourist items, its very nice to just try and act like you are living there and have a normal day where you know where to go and how to get there and look forward to your favorite café, bakery, restaurant, bar or club!

Tomorrow we move on to our final destination on this 87 day journey, Amsterdam. One last place, and we picked one of the most fun at that. Then on June 28th we will be flying home.
Here are some Stockholm pictures for you to enjoy.
