Scenery from Västerå Airport to Stockholm
I was only in Stockholm for 2 nights - enough time for me to do some sightseeing and go the the NHL game.

I stayed at the Stockholm Sheraton hotel, and when I arrived there was ESPN promo stuff everywhere... interesting.  When I checked in the man on reception told me that they were overbooked and instead of having my lake view room would I mind having a interior view room and they would throw in breakfast.  The whole reason I chose this hotel was because of the amazing views so I chose to stick with the lake view room - turned out he actually meant that my room wasn't available so I got upgraded to a superior room... HURRAH.  I soon realised that there was a downside to this - the Sheraton was one of the hotels that was hosting the NHL stars.

.. and it wasn't the team that I support that was staying in the hotel, it was the St Louis Blues (which will be referred to in future as 'The Enemy'!!)  My luck got even worse... not only was I staying in the same hotel as The Enemy.... but my room was on the same floor as theirs... and not only that, but it was in the middle of all of their rooms... I was surrounded by The Enemy.  I couldn't go anywhere without seeing them, everytime I left my room, got in the lift, went to the bar, they were there.  So I did the only thing I could do - I wore my Detroit jersey everywhere :)  To be fair to The Enemy, they are really nice guys, seeing as I kept seeing them everywhere a few of them spoke to me, and even apologised for beating the Red Wings!
