Jan 19-20, 2017 – Travel
Left New York from Newark airport at 5:30 arrived in Stockholm at 7:30… after passport control, I went immediately to The Radisson Blu Hotel inside the airport to rest for a few hours as there were eight hours between flights to my final destination ..Sundsval airport .. one hour from the venue I would play the next day in Nylan – the home of Box whiskey.
Although I didn’t sleep at the hotel it was good to lay down for a few hours before getting ready to take the flight to Sundsval.
After a short one hour flight I arrived there at about 5 o’clock and was met by my great friend Peter Soderlind and his terrific 11-year-old daughter Sags .. also my friend.
Peter .. a fan of country/Americana music… has worked for Box whiskey for five or six years. We first met several years ago when I was touring with Carrie Rodriguez and look forward to seeing each other whenever I come this way touring.
It was approximately a one hour drive to my very comfortable lodging… the Kraam Hotel .. not too far from the Box Whiskey distillery/venue which Goran Grini and I would play tomorrow. After a great dinner at the hotel’s upscale, yet very warm, restaurant I finally caught up on some needed sleep.
