Before we left on our trip, we extended an open invitation to anyone and everyone, encouraging people to join up with us during our travels. (That offer still stands, by the way.)
And Michael’s family took us up on it!
His parents and sister met up with us in Sweden, and they traveled with us to Norway too. So just FYI, they might make some appearances in upcoming blog posts. (I promise we really do know them, and we didn’t just pull random people off the street to engage in our antics.)
And amazingly, we found all of our names while walking along the streets of Stockholm and Oslo, so here is a Scandinavian introduction of the whole fam!
And this is Michael. (He should also look pretty familiar.) Aka my husband, and the other half of The Travel Medley.
This is Michael’s sister, Jessica. We were only able to find her last name, but it still totally counts. (In fact, I personally think it’s even more impressive than just finding “Jessica.”)
And this is Michael’s mom, Lisa. (A part-time owner of this flower shop?)
And last, but not least, Michael’s dad, Wayne.
When we found “Wayne’s Coffee,” I was stoked! However, Wayne managed to stay calm and collected.
But then there was another one! And it was even more exciting!
AND THEN THERE WAS A BIKE TOO, YOU GUYS.
Occasionally, we also take pictures together. Here’s the whole group.
