Jun 15, 2015 - Göteborg

Monday, June 15 Breakfast at the hotel offered good variety—egg, meats, cheeses, breads, and Swedish pancakes! By the way, Göteborg is pronounced yur-te-borry! The only real plan I had for today was Maritiman, a collection of ships you can explore, including a Swedish destroyer, a submarine, and a freighter. Well, that was enough! I think we spent about 4 hours there! We were poking around the destroyer, reading signs, when a young woman guide offered to help. We spent a couple of hours (!) talking with her. She has one year to go to...

Nov 3, 2007 - Gothenburg, Sweden

Gothenburg or Goteborg pronounced 'Yoteburg' is the second largest city in Sweden. A newly married couple hosted me on my day there before I headed to Berlin. There is not much to see in this city but I had a good time with my hosts. Adriana walked me around the city, treated me to Indian food and took me to a fun pub/club that night. Johanne pronounced (Yohan) her husband, worked mostly during the day but cooked us a really nice dinner. They are opposites. Adrianna is more outgoing and does not mind cleaning dishes while Johanne is more...
