Next stop on our road trip was Gothenburg, Sweden! We made our way there via the Øresund Bridge - a half bridge, half tunnel connecting Denmark to Sweden and then up to Gothenburg where we stopped in first to meet some moose in Slottsskogen Park right in the middle of the city. I was completely shocked at just how big moose are! They really are massive creatures, with massive legs - and absolutely tiny, spindly spider legs. As one of the moose sat herself down I wondered how she managed this without snapping her legs in half. After a day in the park we headed out for a nice swedish meal and settled in for the night.
The next day we headed into the city and started the morning with a delicious Kanelbulle each. And let me just repeat myself: delicious, delicious, delicious! Afterwards we spent the day wandering through the streets of Gothenburg which is really a beautiful city with wonderfully unique architecture and the sweetest little trams (although watch out as they will happily run you over when you have a green walking man).
Although we didn't really do any shopping on our trip, if you are looking to shop (or even window shop, as we did), I would recommend popping into the Haga district. A quaint little neighbourhood in the middle of the city with a range of boutiques, bakeries and cafes down streets of cobblestones lined with wooden houses.
With hunger creeping in, we headed across and had a peek into the Saluhallen, an indoor market with a wide variety of foods from Sweden and around the world before stopping for a delicious lunch at the "Fish Church" Feskekörka. The fish market is also indoors and full of both fresh seafood and ready to eat meals and snacks. We had salmon and herring with mashed potatoes and lingonberries and dill.
