Happy Travels - This is Gothenburg :)

I've divided my Gothenburg photos up into four sections - this first selection is my postcard 
series of what Gothenburg looks like. First impressions on arrival at the airport - I was 
already smitten...



It was so clear skied and sunny! There was a lovely crisp coolness with blue skies and
sunshine nearly every day... Gothenburg's Summer is very much like Brisbane's Winter :)









There were some great bits of street art and a lot of road works and improvements to
infrastructure going on.... It made me wonder about the Swedish economy in comparison 
to the rest of the world, and they seemed to be doing really well if the buzz and hum on 
the streets is anything to go by ;)







Loved the bicycles lined up everywhere :)







Gothenburg is one of my new favourite places and I'm already plotting how I can 
get back there again. Thank you Gothenburg!

  6. Must be said I love all of Scandinavia. I love their style, the cool light, the beautiful architecture, the emptyness of the cities, oh I could go on. Your photos make it all look so beautiful.
