Next up on the Nordic Expedition, we head off to Gothenburg in Sweden. The land of ice and beautiful people (or so the Swedes keep telling me).

Okay, that’s a Swedish stereotype but to be fair, there was a lot of ice around and beautiful people so…

Right… now, where was I?

Oh yes, so we arrived in Gothenburg after a rather early flight in which required a mini nap at the hotel, however, as flights only cost £8 from London you can’t really complain I guess.

We found the flights on Skyscanner; couldn’t believe the price when I saw it.

To be fair, Lloyd found it, so I can’t take all the credit.

Anyway, fresh from my nap, we headed out to explore Gothenburg.

Didn’t I say there was lots of ice?

Faffed around the harbour for a while…

Sated and toasty, we headed back out to brave the cold.

After a long day wandering Gothenburg we made our way back to the hotel before a night out in town but I got distracted by the swings!

Dropped the camera off at the hotel and went off exploring the nightlife! Most random question I got off some stranger;

“You’ve come from London to Gothenburg… why?”

Easy answer on this one; It’s one of the most laid-back European cities I’ve been to (in a very good way) with some of the friendliest people albeit rather icy when it gets colder.
