Went over to "sign" for one of our XC60 demo's. Had a great time.

The treatment we recieved was first class.
SAS and the people at the Radisson were wonderful.
We went on the factory tour, did the Brand Experience.
Tried out the City Safety feature on an XC60 D5.

The food was hit and miss. Food at the Radisson was first rate.
Really like the restaurant there. Some of the places around weren't so great.
Service on SAS was wonderful. If you can, make sure you upgrade to Economy Extra. the extra room,free booze and better entertainment are well worth it.
We had a lecture at the factory from one of the interior designers, he showed us a couple of sketches of what they are looking to do with N/C interiors in the next few years.

We too a train to Stockholm for a few day.
Beautiful city. Lots of history. Saw the Vasa museum and the Royal Palace.
Of course, we hit the Absolut Ice Bar. my favorite bartender of the whole trip. He was basically pouring straight vodka!

Bottom line, it is a unique experience, if you have the time and wherewithal
I wholeheartedly recommend it.

Is it served any other way?

So now you see what I have been so excited about for the past 7 years http://********************/smile/emthup.gif Glad you had a good time.

I was in Sweden for the S80 launch, so it wasn't my first time.
What was nice about this was it designed to give us the customer experience, plus some behind the scenes things.

The parts you don't like...well... you can thank the CCCP for those
. The nice parts such as Tallinn's old city, Pärnu and the Isles are wonderful. So are most of the people.

Now you can see why I spend a month and a half every year in Stockholm. Your timing was great with USD 1 = SEK 9 (compared to SEK 6 last summer). I hope it lasts until June!

I've heard it is nice, but yes, the country is probably struggling to get up to the standard of living of Sweden, Norway and Denmark. But I would love to visit. In fact, I'll be in Oslo in just over a month.
