I’ve been to Sweden a couple of times this summer. My Dutch friend Chantal visited me and we went on a 4 day trip to Gothenburg. We took the train, it took 4 hours. I had booked us a room at a lovely boat hotel, a tiny bit outside the city center, but close to the central station.
On the second day in Gothenburg, we visited Trägårdsföreningen. It’s a park full of flowers, trees, a lovely cafe, a big restaurant with an outdoor area and green grass big enough to host conerts. We saw them build a stage, so I think a concert was just around the corner. As you can see, the sun was shining and it was a lovely summer day. All the different flowers / plants were amazing. I love walking in gardens like this one.
On our last day in Gothenburg we had to leave the hotel before noon. The train didn’t leave before 18.00, so we had quite some time to kill. We decided to spend the hours in the park, since we had our luggage with us and didn’t want to walk around with it. And after all, it was sunday, so not many shops were open and we didn’t want to spend much money. We spent the hours sitting in the park, reading, watching people going by us rating their outfits (socks in sandals is a BIG NO NO!) and eating a lovely lunch at the cafe. Chantie had a lovely salad and I had a yummy ham/cheese sandwich.
We took lots of photos in the garden. At least I did. Here are the photos I liked the most.
There will come more photos from Sweden and Gothenburg later. Hopefully I’ll be able to share some in a few days.
