On my very last day in Gothenburg, I took another trip to the Southern Gothenburg Archipelago. This time, the ferry brought me to a car-free island called Styrsö, which is home to about 1500 folks. Most of them seem to own a «flakmoped» – a three-wheeled moped, usually built (or modified rather) on that island, the number one vehicle on there. By the way, I passed another island called «Köpstadsö» with the ferry – its 100 inhabitants’ (it’s 300 in summer) prime means of transport is the wheelbarrow.
Boom, that’s it. Another island in my next post.
A few snapshots I took while randomly strolling around Gothenburg. Except for the «Liseberg» ones (that’s the theme park), those were taken from my apartment/bedroom/home. More soon.
Not much blah blah here, just a few snapshots of my international Gothenburg friends, our brunches, walks along Delsjön, Slottsskogen, and one of these rare sunny days walking around the city. Don’t complain about the dust on the negatives, I was in a hurry.
It was on the first or second weekend in Sweden that I went to Vrångö, a wonderful small island in the Southern Archipelago of Gothenburg. We picked the most beautiful, sunny day we possibly could for this first of many excursions. It was warm enough even for a wonderful picnic – including hummus! We was a fairly big group of international design and arts students who had only just arrived in Gothenburg and were about to start their exchange studies.
I went to Gothenburg in January for my studies in photography and stayed until the beginning of July. It was cold for the better part of these almost six months. There surely were some sunny days when everyone seemed to just soak up the sun. I heard, though, that there had not been a colder spring in Sweden for many years. I still had a fantastic time in this beautiful city that somehow just feels like a small-town to me – not least because I met a bunch of wonderful people. These are some snapshots I took within the first week.
