To finish out (roughly) the first half of my European journey, I headed out for two days in Göteborg. Although a bit lazier than I had originally planned, I still had a good time. I started at the Göteborg Konstmuseum; Göteborg’s main art gallery. Six floors of great paintings, drawings, sculpture, and photography; both classic and modern.

After a vegetarian lunch and a bit of wandering I headed to Maritiman museum. The museum has 20 different vessels moored on the bay; a lighthouse boat, mine laying ship, cargo ship, but the crown jewels are a destroyer and 1960s u-boat. The u-boat was fun, cramped, and reeked of diesel (well, really, all of the ships did), but the real star was the destroyer. The Småland was almost entirely open to be explored. In fact, it took me nearly and hour and a half to wander through all of it.

The second day was definitely the lazier of the two. A quick trip to the Stadsmuseum. The big sight there are the remnants of a viking ship. Later that evening I took a stroll through Slottsskogen park. This park has lots of trails, a small zoo, disc golf, and a minigolf course which is apparently becoming a theme of this trip. All in all, this park was one of, if not the best city park I’ve been to in my travels.
