After our stay in Copenhagen, we headed off to Sweden!

Our first stop was Malmo. Not only is it the first city on the other side of the bridge connecting Denmark and Sweden, but it’s also the location of the biggest Ikea store in the world. Unfortunately, it wasn’t open when we were there, but we did see it as we drove past.

What we did do was park the car and explore the rest of the city. Where we parked, there was a cute little church – we used the steeple as the reference point to get back to the car.

The streets of Malmo and buildings are beautiful and it was great to look around first thing in the morning before the town was swamped by tourists.

It the centre of Malmo is the City hall, which is really quite impressive.

Malmo’s Central Station is also a really nice building on the canal.

After looking around Malmo, we headed off to Gothenburg – the big city. We decided not to stay in the city itself, but about 30 minutes by train outside the city beside a lake.

Once we settled in, we jumped on a train and headed for Gothenburg – the first thing we noticed was a hotdog stand that we had to get a picture in front of. πŸ˜‰

The streets of Gothenburg were fantastic and picturesque. We wondered around for a couple of hours taking pictures and enjoying the sights.

One thing we also noticed was the great statues all around the city – here’s a few that we took pictures of. Bec’s favourite was the seahorse… unicorn…. in gold – Keith’s favourite was the knife fight. Β πŸ™‚

After wandering around for a few hours we were in need of a nice meal and some drinks so we met up with a friend of Keith’s from Sydney – Jonna! It was great to catch up and talk about the differences in countries we’ve been travelling through.

It’s hard to believe that we were in Denmark this morning, Sweden this evening and will be in Norway tomorrow! This continent is crazy!!

      The Franks stand was the first thing we saw after getting off the train-pretty funny πŸ˜‰
