Just a few steps from our hotel in Gothenburg, we found a wonderful botanical garden – lovely to walk in and a great chance to rest after a day of sightseeing.

Walking to Gamla Stan, we passed so many wonderful buildings – what a pity the weather was not better!
Having taken a guided tour before, we felt confident we’d remember the buildings – built I’m at a loss now 🙂

Little Red House

One more memory of Sweden – a friend reminded me of our visit to Sweden yesterday and we talked about the little red houses – so I just had to get out a photo of a little red house 🙂

One of the castles we visited on the day of the four castles in Sweden – Skokloster.
It was one of the most beautiful castles we’ve seen – and they had a small cafeteria where I could get waffles for lunch 😀

Sailing through the seven seas

Captain Bear – we found him in a shop window in Gothenburg, Sweden. He looked like he had already seen the seven seas – I hope to someday sail on such a ship…
