To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Star Alliance, travel writer Robert Reid has been challenged to visit 5 locations on a Round the World ticket to enjoy five unique cultural experiences.
“My second challenge brought me to Stockholm for the first time in my life. Here Star Alliance and founding member Scandinavian Airlines challenged me to see Stockholm from a whole new perspective, by hiking across the perilously high rooftops at dawn – my worst nightmare. After filling up on a Scandinavian breakfast and with the help of a local guide, I conquered my deep-seated fear of heights, geared up and set to it. Taking part in this challenge and putting my nerves to the test has created a lifetime connection to the city and its people that will stay with me for a long time.”
