I spent the mid summer break in Gothenburg where I stayed at the very glamorous Avalon Hotel.
Gothenburg is very different from Stockholm but charming nevertheless.
Coming from Australia I had no idea that mid summer was such a big deal in Scandinavia. Unfortunately the time I spent in Gothenburg was affected by the mid summer break. Shops - closed; art galleries and museums - closed. Luckily the gardens were still open and the famous amusement park, Liseberg.
I'm not one for rides, so I concentrated on capturing the colour and movement of the amusement park with my camera.
I was mesmerised by the beautiful gardens of the Garden Society, which were much more my style, complete with maypole for the mid summer festivities.
As it was so quiet, when I went out early in the morning to take photos, I had the whole town to myself, including the magnificent Gothenburg Cathedral.
I have every intention of returning to Gothenburg next time I'm in Europe because I don't think I saw it at it's best.
Come back on Wednesday, as I have some baking for you, that's if I can work out how to upload my images to a new site. Wish me luck!
