on the road: göteborg

by kmcopeland

Back in January, the Swede and I visited Göteborg, a town north of Malmö on the west coast of Sweden. Everyone talks about how it combines the best parts of Stockholm (the beauty) and Malmö (the working class vibe), so it’s been on my “to visit” list pretty much since we moved here a year ago. And even though it coincided with an unexpected work assignment due on Sat. at 1 pm and an even more unexpected a snow storm, it was a lovely weekend.

On Friday we saw Anna Ternheim in concert. She’s touring for her new album, which is amazing, and the concert was one of the best I’ve ever been to. If she comes to your neck of the woods, go. Saturday’s snow storm put a kink in our plans for a walking tour of the city. But Larssons don’t quit. We drink (all day). Our tour took us to a couple of very cool places – the Öl Cafe by Järntorget, a cute bar in Haga, and Hagabion. It’s definitely a city I look forward to visiting in the summer because, let’s face it, everything in Sweden is prettier in the summer.
