boat to southern archipelago
Vasttrafik tells us that they will start a new ferryline from Stenpiren in central Gothenburg this summer to Vrangoe in the southern archipelago. The ferry will start every bankday by 10:50 and then pass Saltholmen for the journey down to Vrangoe. It will go back again 15:35 from Vrangoe, bankdays, and a little later in weekends.

new website
Currently I am moving.
I am doing the second effort in making my websight more mobilefriendly and are trying with a slightly new design. Earlier I wrote in english on http://www.citygbg.se but are now redirecting most of the english pages here to this new domain. http://www.citygbg.nu/ . My intention is to give you some suggestions on what to see in Gothenburg Sweden. From the beginning I wrote citygbg.se after been guiding tourists from all over the world in Gothenburg and after the guiding I got questions like where to eat, what to see, how you get to the beach and then made a decision by publishing a page with tourist information that "normal" pages did not offer. Usually you see a lot information about hotels and accommodation in Gothenburg but nothing about different museums, the harbour and places around Gothenburg. Like the archipelago, old cultural buildings and how you get a bus or tram. If you got any questions about Gothenburg then please send me a mail and I will answer as soon as possible.

You are getting much value for your money in Sweden at the moment.The swedish krona is falling and it is nearly deflation here because the salary has not been rising for the last years. This means that if you are paying with Euro you´ll get 15% more then last year.

As you propably are aware of these nordic countries where home of the famous vikings that where the first europeans to discover north america. In 1933 one farmer 40 kilometers north of Gothenburg discovered a ship in his field during ploughing. This ship, Aeskekaerr ship is the only viking-ship that still remains from this period. You are actually able to see it in Gothenburg city museum. They are also showing a lot of information from this period.
