Day 2 - Swedish Madness

Yesterday we spent the day shopping in the Swedish madness on the Avenyn in Göteborg, since we tend to do everything last minute, including our Christmas shopping! Lots of hussle and bussle, just like in the states, except I don't understand what anyone is saying to me. Also, just as I predicted, flat, knee high leather boots are all the rage. (just as we discussed Eeps!)

We ended the evening with a trip to Liseberg, which is the biggest Christmas market in Scandinavia. It is a beautiful place lit up with thousands of lights, with lots of little shops, crafts, and many places to eat and have a bit of glögg, which is the Swedish version of mulled wine, and it is tasty!

We then went to the top floor of the Gothia Towers for julbord, which included every type of herring you can think of, ham, salmon, meatballs, sausages, and I even tried some reindeer.

It was a fun-filled day and great to see the fam too! Today we will finish our shopping and hopefully find some time to relax. Perhaps I will be hitting my Rosetta Stone lesson 2!
