    Be prepared to open your wallet - Sweden and Norway are the most expensive countries in Europe. One could easily spend a week in either Sweden or Norway. Oslo- See the Viegland statues in Frogner Park. Take the train to Bergen - or at least to Myrdal. Get off at Myrdal, and hike down the valley to the Sognefjord at Flåm (waterfalls every 200 yards). Take the train back up to Myrdal, or if you have time, take the boat to Bergen.
    Stockholm - if you have read the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy by Stieg Larsson (or seen the films), you might be interested in the Larsson-Blomkvist tours of Stockholm - taking you to all the places that were featured in the books/films - including Salnader's apartment on Sodermalm. If you are a real fan of the films, you could even visit Gnesta, a town the film producers substituted for the fictional Hedestad.

    Sevilla is a very comfortable city. Although I don't know a lot of the details of the man scene, I spent several summers near there, in the last decade for wurk. There was a lot of cruising on the grass along the river. There was a large gay nightclub about a block or two up-river from the Plaza del Toro. Just follow the boys. I think there was a gay gym somewhere in that neighborhood, based on the buff boys in gym gear I'd see, but I don't know exactly where. M/M PDA was quite normal and nobody cared.

    Of course, It may all have changed by now.

    Oh, also, pretty much the whole coast between Huleva and Portugal is a relaxed nude beach. About an hour drive. Just follow the signs to Punta Umbria. Most people discreetly slip back into the pine dunes to have sex, but in the off season or a weekday, some people just casually flip a towel over their asses out on the beach and go for it.

    Sevilla is extremely hot at this time of year and relatively humid so bring the appropriate clothing or lack thereof.
