Day two in Gothenburg! On Friday, we had a bit of a lie-in to recover from a long day of traveling. This was the view from my bed. Each one of the bunk beds had a little net where you could put all of your essentials, and a socket. So handy! After freshening up a little and putting on some clothes, we went to the kitchen to have some breakfast. The cereal we had bought turned out to be quite tasteless (we should’ve known, because the packaging said fullkorn – which means wholewheat– and utan tillsatt socker – which means no added sugar). Next, we went to the supermarket to get some bread for our picnic.
We decided to go to the southern archipelago that day, so we took the tram to Saltholmen, where you can take a ferry to the islands.
We went to the Pressbyrån to get some new tram tickets. Good thing: tram tickets are also valid on the ferries, so you don’t have to buy a separate ticket!
We took the ferry to Asperö, which is a small island with about 400 inhabitants and, according to the magazine we read at the hostel, a child-friendly bathing spot. I thought it sounded like a nice place to go :)
We made a little walk on the island, and then we had lunch at the beach. It was soo quiet there! There were lots of rocks, too.
Sunbathing on a rock is not that bad!
We played UNO.
Even though it was not that hot, I still wanted to take a quick dip. The stairs were covered with slimy plants (sorry if I ruined the idyl there) and the water was ice cold, I still managed to stay in there for about thirty seconds. Haha! :)
As the sun started to set, it started to get a little chilly and we decided to go back to the city. The sunlight in the woods was so pretty.
On the tram.
On our way back, we stumbled upon this beautiful church, which was called Oskar Fredriks Kyrka.
“Ken opening the door.”
We made a little walk in the city before dinner. As we were walking through the Haga Nygata, we saw this shop called Kawaii (which means “cute” in Japanese) with lots of kawaii stuff in there.
We had dinner at an Asian place. The staff was not very nice, but the food was delicious (I chose the noodles with grilled vegetables!) and we still had a nice time.
Stay tuned for part three! :)
