Last weekend I ticked another country off the list!
This weeks city was Gothenburg – where Batman lives =)
I stayed at Slottsskogens Hostel, which was walking distance to the city centre and close to a few sights. I arrived quite late on Friday night so it was straight to bed for me, but Saturday I was up and on the hunt for a currency exchange and a supermarket to get breakfast. Scandinavian countries are known for being expensive so I was wary to be careful to save money where I could.
I walked around the small parks based in the city then I headed for the Universeum to take cover from the looming rain. Worth doing if your into science and / or animals.
I took a stroll through the Haga district, up to a beautiful view over Gothenburg at Skansen Kronan then onto the Botanical Gardens. The gardens were covered with many brightly coloured flowers, and it was free! Nice and peaceful if you want somewhere to relax or take a picnic and soak up the sun.
Sunday was a walking tour run by the hostel, which was was a walk then history but still fun listening to the Italian guy chat away. I meandered through the central city, back to near my hostel where there is a massive park called Slottsskogen, but the rain stopped me from perching somewhere so I headed home.
Monday I caught the tram out to Saltholmen, to catch a ferry through the Southern Archipelago islands. They are rocky islands and the southern ones are mostly car-less. I got off at Vrango and went for a nature walk and had to make a run for it to grab the ferry back. It was unfortunately time to make my way back to the city to collect my things and head to the airport.
Until next time x
