My Motivation For This Trip Itinerary:

Ten years ago to this date, when I made a back-packing trip to the European mainland (covering Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Italy, France, Spain and other places), someone said to me, "So you’re not going to Scandinavia?". Their glowing description of the area set the seeds of curiosity for me to plan a back-packing tour of Scandinavia one day.

Since the best time to visit Scandinavia is late spring or early summer, I booked my flight tickets to travel to Scandinavia near the end of May.
