A Day in Gothenburg

Every now and then, when I want to get out of town, I escape to Gothenburg. Previous to visiting Sweden's second largest city, the only information I had about it was that a band I loved in high school called Division of Laura Lee was from there. And very recently, my mom told me a story of being flashed by a goofy looking man riding by on a bicycle when she was hitchhiking across Scandinavia in the her 20s in the 1970s. So needless to say, I didn't have too many facts to start with. I liked this city from the second I stepped out of the car. There were record stores scattered along the road where we parked, and further down I came to a small neighbourhood called Haga, which is known for its cobblestone-lined streets filled with little cozy cafes, shops and plenty of good people watching. Even further down, after crossing the park, there is even more shopping and restaurants to discover. My boyfriend and I took a short trip into Gothenburg the other day to look for some things to add to our apartment (my third time now) and I discovered an amazing hotel, ate a yummy treat in Haga, and admired the tall buildings everywhere around me.

The outside of my new favourite hotel: Dorsia. Stepping inside was a total dream and now it's my mission to stay there ASAP. Every room is totally different and each rooms decor is a surprise.
