We of course went to the U.S., Orlando in particular, to see John’s parents and family. We also went to Sweden and had some memorable experiences in our travels in my country. I have already mentioned in some length our unforgettable trip to Bergslagen west of Stockholm and what we would call middle Sweden. (Chapter 23).
