Sweden Part I: Gothenburg

Hello! I’m back from my week off and we manage to pack so many activities during this time. My rascal went to the cinema for the first time to watch Kung Fu Panda. She also went on her first holiday to Sweden with my husband, my parents, my brother and course moi. I have an Aunty and five Cousins who we haven’t seen for two years. It was so lovely meeting them again and visiting Sweden after more than 15 years.

I have decided to split this post into three parts as we visited three cities; Gothenburg (Goteburg), Jonkoping and Stockholm.

First stop was Gothenburg where my cousins are based where we spent three days:

Salhuhallen Goteborg, indoor market in Kurgstorget


Gotheborgs Utkiken (The Lipstick Tower) and views from the top


Inside a lovely Sweden ‘Handmade’ shop which also sells yarn and fabrics.

Lisberg Park, on a Dala Horse (the Swedish people makes these by hand)

A Swedish Moose (pronounce as ‘elk’ in Swedish) at Slottsskogen where they have the largest stuff Whale at the Natural History Museum in the Park

We also went on the Paddan boat trip where, at a two points, you have to sit on the floor so the boat can pass through two low bridge (cheese slicer), the Gothenburg Art Museum, Universeum (not advisable to go in when it is more than 30 degree celcius outside as it has an indoor rainforest) and the open tour bus. Part II will follow.
