We finally visited the Aeroseum which is one of the most interesting museums in Gothenburg after so many years of living here. The museum is a huge subterranean hangar, where aircrafts were hidden at the beginning of the 1950’s. Since 1999 they decided to turn the place into a history museum.
We made a day trip at the weekend to Öckerö and Hönö, which are two of the islands nearby Gothenburg. The ferries are the only way to go to the island by car and they are free because they replace the bridges, as it was decided not to build them.
This time we went to Vättlefjäll for hiking, not for camping as we did last year. The environment was completely different than in the summer. I could hardly recognise the lakes we were canoeing on. They were frozen, the leaves and bushes were gone and the weather was freezing cold. There were different tracks around the lakes with different lengths. Since we did not have much time before sunset, we picked the 6.6 km one.
Last Saturday we drove to a well-known waterfall Älgafallet on the border with Norway. We followed some signs and checked the GPS to find the place, and when we did it felt like the middle of nowhere.
Christmas is on the way and the city is lighting up accordingly. Among many Christmas market options we picked one from a list and visited last weekend. It was in the garden of a castle which is 40km south of Gothenburg. The market was open for two weekends only, so it was very crowded. People with traditional costumes were selling lots of different items from decorations and leather gloves, to woolen cardigans and cookies.
We took a very nice walk in Slottsskogen last weekend. It is the biggest park-forest in the center of Gothenburg, with a huge playground “Plikta” for kids. I have never checked that part of the park out carefully before. During our walk I realized how fun it would be to play there.
We took a ride with the scooter on Sunday. It wasn’t very warm, so instead of having a picnic, we decided to see some parts of Gothenburg we haven’t been to before. Barış made the plan, so I just enjoyed the ride.
