“On first glance, a more industrial side of Sweden but actually an attractive and relaxed city.”

Our trip to Gothenburg was the second part of a Sweden holiday which started in Stockholm. Since we were already in the country, we decided to get the train across to Gothenburg. Despite being over 450km apart, the train was scheduled to only take 3hrs 15mins and the tickets (booked in advanced on the national train operator, SJ, website) only cost 420SKE total (~£21 each).

“There is something about Stockholm that made me feel right at home before I had even left the airport.”

Stockholm has always interested me as a city; Whilst I would also love to see Scandinavia in the summer, it is a country which is also used to the cold and you see a different side to a country when the sun isn’t continually shining. So, when we needed to take holiday late in the year, Sweden seemed like an obvious choice. Coupled with a visit to Gothenburg, the first 3 nights of our 6 night trip were in Stockholm. So here it is, the highs and lows of our trip to Stockholm:

“A delightful but windy first trip to North Wales, enjoying the beautiful scenery and slower pace of life.”

Our first visit to North Wales had us based in Bala, on the edge of the lake. We were staying at a residence owned by my company, so I shan’t be saying much about the accommodation (it was very comfortable and we even had our own mini ‘hallway’). We also ate most of our food there, so I won’t be commenting on that either (it was all really tasty). However, we did explore a bit of the ‘local’ area so that I will review.

“A historic English town which retains it’s medieval charm.”

Shrewsbury was a ‘stop-off’ point for us on our way to North Wales. I am always drawn to staying in quainter historic market towns rather than bigger cities, simply because they usually are nicer to walk around. Shrewsbury didn’t disappoint on that front. The town really has kept it’s ‘old feel’, with the layout of the town seemingly unchanged over the years. The centre of the town is littered with narrow streets and lanes, which are full of cute looking shops and cafes.
