Friday night we went for a beer with some other recent arrivals...pub was absolutely packed out. You've have thought they we giving the beer away........which they weren't of course. You know when you've been in Sweden too long when you have more than one at £5.90 per 0.5 litre !! On Sat., went for a walk around the park land and gardens at Gunnebo Slott, a stately home built in 1700's. It was only about 20 minutes drive from home. Was very much off the beaten track, but was only about 5 miles from work... read more

Went for a drive to the Vatterfjall Nature Park with great expectation of what we would see.....not a waterfall in sight..so much for trying to be a smart **** with my translation. Anyway a nice walk and picnic...and another truly wild-animal. Gotta be worth 20 points on I-Spy wild animals, 10 for the red squirrel and 10 for a slow-worm......... read more

Bit wet on saturday...went for a walk around Slottsskogsparken, a large public park on 5 min drive from the centre of town. At the top of the hill is a deer park....hence the 'cheating' animal shots, except for the red squirrel which was wild.... read more

I feel like I have been travelling at the most sensational time of the year, although fresh and a little cold at times, the sun is normally shining, the sky is a beautiful blue and so far I have only had three or four days where it has rained on my entire trip – not bad considering I have now been on the road for eight weeks. When I arrived in Goteborg it was late on Friday afternoon and I checking out the map that I had been given I found that 200mts up the road from my hostel was Slottsskogen Park, a beautiful park (about 140 hectares in total) that was covered in snow, I felt such a real sense of peace, even though I was in the middle of quite a large city.
