    Armchair Travel
    Armchair Travel is one of the most wonderful ways to look into our fantastic, vast world and learn as much as our hearts desire. We can travel to some of our favourite places without leaving home. Through videos, pod casts, books and music and numerous other ways, we can go to places we have never seen, or only ever dreamed of. This way of travelling is a delightful pastime and is good for the imagination and soul. This form of travel at it’s best, makes us want to go and see for ourselves. After all we are curious individuals and have a thirst for knowledge!
    Enjoy sensory and magical experiences as we travel back in time or across the globe, take a trip down memory lane and many more exhilarating moments that will make you smile and fulfill your heart.
    Ready? Let’s explore Sweden, a Nordic country in Northern Europe, bordering Norway to the West and Finland to the Northeast. Sweden’s geographical location makes it prone to cold and dark winters. In some of the most northern parts of the country above the Arctic Circle, you might get as little as three hours of sunlight per day. Although Winter can be tough, Summer certainly makes up for this as daylight hours are long and the warmer temperatures, make Sweden one of the most beautiful places to be in during May to August. The challenges and ever-changing beauty of the seasons, are for you to explore.
    To prepare for our trip, please follow the steps for a relaxing journey. Step 1 – Pour yourself a cup of tea or your favourite tipple, Step 2- kick off your shoes, Step 3 – pull up a comfy chair, ready? let’s go!
    Adverts may be displayed during video.
