Uppsala by bike

Sorry I have not continued with my trip blog but the summer has whizzed by and I have been working on new designs for the summer markets.

Here are a few more pictures and details from my trip.  My next big stop was in Uppsala.  My 5th great grandfather attended the Uppsala University in the 1700’s.  It is such a young a vibrant city.  You have to love university and college towns.  There is always so much to see and do.  Best city for biking I have ever visited.  Lots of great places to rent bikes.  Worth the little bit of money it cost to rent one.  It’s the best way to see the city and of course head out to Gamla Uppsala.  This is a must.  And a great trip on the bicycle.  I took the main highway out to the site but discovered there is a lovely walking and biking trail that winds through the woods just behind the Royal Burial Mounds.

Here a few photos of Gamla Uppsala.

You can just make out the spires of the Domkyrka in the distance.  More from Uppsala later this week.
