Katrina and I enjoyed our visit in Stockholm with you over the last fortnight. We hadn’t enjoyed the wonders of Stockholm since we were there nearly a decade back as it’s hard to get away for enough time to really enjoy a vacation.
The accommodations you found for us at the Stureparkens Hotel in Gästvåning was perfect as it was, as you promised, small enough to feel cozy down to the communal kitchen! It was perfect for us to have a late night snack and featured a decent selection of rather good breakfast foods. Katrina said it really felt more like the hostels she stayed in during her student busking adventures.
She’s ecstatic about how well the Leaf & Tree concerts went for them. Your publicity efforts were stellar at filling the intimate venues they played. I’m always surprised how superb Medieval music is when played by a trio of a gamba, violin, and llefarydd, my favorite type of Welsh bagpipes! The audiences were very appreciative of their programme of all Welsh tunes followed by an extended encore of Swedish waltzes.
I’m very pleased with the coverage Angus provided for me while I was away. Takes after his grandfather rather well. Time to see if I can get Ingrid, our Steward, to raise his salary as he and his new wife have a wee bairn on the way come summer.
Until next time, Gus
