Sabine has arrived in Stockholm, but her household is still in transit. Actually, the latest news from the moving company was that her belongings are on a ship named "Stuttgart Express", en route to Southampton, England, and scheduled to arrive at Stockholm in early October.
On Saturday, out of curiosity, I googled for that ship, and was completely amazed about the amount of information I could find.
The "Stuttgart Express" is a 16-year old cargo vessel, 294 metres long, and with a deadweight of 67680 tons:

According to the ship's itineraries history, the Stuttgart Express has left Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Saturday, August 29 at 20:30 UTC, and reached the English Channel on Friday, September 4, around noon. Though, it didn't stop in Southampton, but went straight on to Antwerp, Belgium, where it arrived at the port on Saturday, September 5, at 9:30 in the morning.
The ship spent Saturday in Antwerp, and left for England early on Sunday morning. However, destination was not Southampton, but a place on the southern bank of the Thames estuary:
No idea what it did there, there seems to be no port, but maybe it has bunkered fuel. Anyway, it left that place this morning before five,
heading for … Bremerhaven, Germany.
Right now, the Stuttgart Express has passed the island of Norderney in the Wadden Sea:
No idea when it will arrive at Southampton to disembark the container, but somehow, the next four weeks have to be spent.
