Today’s post is sort of a snapshot album of my time in Goteborg.
If you look closely this photograph, you’ll see a bit of smoke coming out of one of the chimneys. This sight is always the cause of great celebration in Goteborg, as it signals the fact that the church fathers have settled on their new Sexiest Lutheran Minister Alive.
I didn’t make it to the movies in Goteborg, but I did enjoy not one but two Mexican restaurants. Next to one of them was a gelato place run by an Italian guy. It was the best gelato I’ve had since the last time I was in Italy.
I searched for this guy in 7-Elevens all over Sweden, but I never found him:
Near Goteborg are two extensive archipelagos, artfully named The North Archipelago and the South Archipelago. I only had time to check out one of them. I chose the South, largely because none of its islands allow private motor vehicles. Impressively, your metro day pass also worked on all of the ferries that scoot around between the islands, so all you need to see them is a bit of time and patience. In half a day I got to see a small fraction of what the islands had to offer, but that included a wonderful cross-island hike.
The islands seem to have a contest that I can really get behind.
There were lots of dreamy summer homes on Vargö, the main island I explored.
I shared the island with this very attractive couple and their adorable hounds.
There were lots of picturesque sheep.
Not to mention a picturesque ferryman.
I would have loved to have had more time to explore the islands!
