Part four of the Gothenburg story! We woke up pretty early on Sunday to continue the shopping trip we started the day before. For someone who’s living in a country where nearly every store is closed on Sunday, it’s such a nice thing to go on a shopping trip that day! According to the weather app it was going to rain so I left my beloved Birkenstocks at home and wore my white Converse instead.
I don’t know if you’ve seen them before, but these are the blue trams of Gothenburg. I like trams so much more than the metro, because at least when you’re in a tram you can do some sightseeing. Still, we decided not to take the tram because it was a nice morning for a walk, and what’s the point of doing a city trip when you don’t want to walk a little bit? :)
Just on our way to the shopping district.
So I didn’t exactly snap a lot of pictures when we were shopping, but if you’d like to know what I got, go check out my haul video!
When we were done shopping, we went to the Röhsska Museum. They had an exhibition about Picasso’s ceramics (did you know Picasso made ceramics, ’cause I didn’t!) and one about the history of design, which was pretty nice to see. I always think it’s nice to go back in time just a little bit. They had a lot of furniture, but other things as well (they even had an iPhone there, which I thought was pretty weird). Oh and the best thing about this museum? It’s free for people under 25!
Just chilling at the silver exhibition.
When we were done at the museum, the rain had finally kicked in, so we decided to look for a nice café to sit and maybe play a little Boggle. We ended up at this cosy café in the Vasagatan, which was called Frank’s coffee. I got a chai latte, and it was really nice to sit there while it was raining outside.
Making myself feel at home.
Afterwards, we decided to have dinner at this Korean restaurant called Yammy Kitchen in the Andra Långgatan, which was just the best! I had the noodles with grilled vegetables, once again, and they tasted really good. For desert, we all shared some banana yaki (deep fried banana with syrup and sesame seeds) and tempura ice-cream (deep fried ice-cream), which was delicious! And the staff was really nice too.
Stay tuned for part five, which will be here soon! :)
