Only airline operating from Pier C going to Stockholm is KLM. (Big surprise there. There's a KLM sign to the side.)

1 Aug: KL 1107, 0655-0855
Sun's up from 5.59am to 9.33pm.

Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

I just want a good old fashioned, eat a lot of fill-in-the-blank, ride something until you throw up kind of amusement park task. That's what I want to see on TV.

Confirmed. Gate C15.

Our timeline's fine so far. A TBC could still work, but to have Phil host one Pit Stop in Sweden, then run off while teams run another leg on the spot? Looks a little strange...

For those unfamiliar with the reference Arlanda is the name of the Stockholm International Airport (hence airport code ARN) and Grona Land is an amusement park in Stockholm. Here is a description of a visit there, including a picture desribed by Richard Bannister:

Oops, I read it wrong.  :-[ There's a tracking service here (click on "current vessel's track"); Victoria is headed towards Tallinn, the Baltic Queen is headed the other way.

Technical note: No streetview in Sweden, but they have adopted the Mapjack technology to the Hitta website (here, with a view towards Grona Lunds).

Boingo,

Thanks for the Grona Land info. It looks to me like a smaller version of Copenhagen's Tivoli.

The first location is PIKK St 26

which is the home of the Knights of the Blackheads
Here is the House of the Blackheads website:

Here is something about it:

Teams were instructed to look for this green door:



The teams  (some of them??) headed off to a cluebox next to the House of Parliament...

primefun has been hassled and harassed by production, so let's give him a huge welcome when he arrives...these pictures and videos were not easy to get!

I'll let him tell us the rest!

the time of the pics in the port are basically 5 minutes past 10 so it was literally an hour and a half ago. didnt take many pictures, only 3, so rest are on videos, at one point thought videos would be much more valuable...
