Does anyone have advice on how one could get from Belgium to Stockholm and back? Ridesharing might work but it's a long distance. I can't seem to get prices on trains and trains take ages, like 1 day. And we can't fly. So I don't know how to get there. :(

Thanks for all your help. I had no idea there was a ferry. That's an expensive option but it would be rather fascinating. Also less of a headache. I'm going to look for ferries out of Belgium, the Netherlands, and Germany even because the expensive train ride is from Germany up north, not to Germany. Plus they're are often blablarcars to everywhere in Germany out of Aachen. I actually researched the trains extensively but had the same problem Sal did. They wouldn't show me the price. I tried all 4 national railway sites without much success, except that the price on Swedish rail's site caused my eyes to bulge out. Even the price from Copenhagen to Stockholm via rail was ridiculous. Worse comes to worse we can take a bus for 116$ for two people each way. It takes 22hrs though but there's only one short correspondence (forget the English word).

Driving is more expensive because we need an automatic and we'd rent it a week. If we rent it just one or two days they charge you for not returning it to its site of origin. And because I'm 24 they charge me a penalty (my husband is 26 but without official papers I don't want to risk that). But thanks for your help. Worse comes to worse we'll combine blablarcar with bus or all bus, but I'm going to look into the ferries because that would be an interesting way to go. And perhaps then I can visit Norway IF I could ever get the Scandinavian ridesharing site to work for me so I can see if there are options to Stockholm because even Bergen to Stockholm or Oslo to Stockholm by train is ridiculous.

I wish I hadn't bought these tickets...especially for Scandinavia....

Warning: ferries would be an interesting way to go for about five minutes. After that, it'll just be a) boredom, and b) vomit. Ghent-Gothenburg (and you'd still need the train from there) isn't a fancy cruisy ferry with cinemas and fine cuisine, I don't think. It's just a freight ferry that you can also buy passenger (or car) tickets for. Although shorter ferries from Germany to Sweden might be more comfortable.

Regarding trains: as I say, prices are definitely available after a couple of minutes looking from Brussels to Hamburg (SNCB site) and Hamburg to Stockholm (DB site).

Yes, I did. I spent three days in Tokyo, and then I went on a one-week tour through central Honshu by train (Matsumoto, Kyoto, the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route on the Kii peninsula, and finally Osaka). It was a great holiday, with lots of interesting things to see and some fascinating experiences. I'd have loved to have more time though...

I'm spending 2 days in Arkansas (Little Rock) next week to release some stress and just be tourists for 2 days. The first day we're doing Little Rock stuff but does anyone have any advice for the second day? We have to drive back to Illinois but we'll have time to hit a few things quick as long as they are 'moderately' on the way back northeast up the highway. I was thinking of maybe just swinging through the Ozarks but I'm not sure how to attack it in just a few hours.
