For the past 4 days I’ve enjoyed a mini vacation with my mother. We took the fast train to Gothenburg, approx. 4 hours ride southwest of Stockholm. I’ve not enjoyed a train ride since I stopped with my weekly commute to Linköping in June so it was nice to be on a train again and see the beautiful Swedish landscape pass by. Yeah, I know, it’s boring grey November and it’s not as beautiful outside as during the Summer or Fall, or when the ground is dressed in white, but I enjoyed the ride anyway. 🙂
We saw a musical (The Addams Family), went to a museum, the botanical gardens (only the greenhouse, it was way too cold and windy to enjoy the outside garden), ate lunch with a relative, visited a Christmas market (my first of the season) and enjoyed a simply amazing Saturday dinner at a restaurant called Norda. I found the restaurant because the guy who won the Pastry Chef of the year award came from that restaurant. I need to take my hubby down to Gothenburg sometime so he can enjoy the food as well.
