We found this fantastic video of Kosterhavet Marine National Park by Knut Bergsten and it made us long for summer…
If you’re a foodie, then pay attention!
You need to visit Gothenburg, Sweden. The city is arguably one of the best destinations in the world when it comes to food. We have already discussed the merits of Sill (that’s Herring, remember?) but how does Gothenburg hold up when it comes to food for the refined palates of gourmands?
Very well indeed thank you! In fact, Gothenburg has no less than five Michelin-starred restaurants and a whole host of contenders that cater to gastronomical travellers with the most acquired tastes.
Take a look here for an overview of ten great Gothenburg restaurants and check out the video below for a tour of the aforementioned Michelin-starred eateries.
Next on the list of interviewees is Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist/All-around Musical Genius, Kristoffer Ragnstam, a native of Gothenburg but a rocker of the world. “Ragnstam specializes in an exuberant type of rock, with strains of everything he’s ever heard – musical and otherwise — found like footnotes in his songs…” declaims his website, and come to think of it, declaims his music as well. The eclecticism and yet simple appeal of his music draws listeners like moths to the flame – which of course is a perfect segue into the topic of the interview: his new music video for Who Set the City on Fire.
Explore West Sweden: Your newest music video, Who Set the City on Fire, was a single continuous shot. What was it like filming for it? Were there any nerves about not making any mistakes? Or did you just shoot and go with it?
Kristoffer Ragnstam: The whole idea behind my new EP is: one take, be proud of who you are, and have fun with it. That idea left us pretty open to options how to make the video. But the Director “Markus KoKoKaKa” had an idea of trying to get the live vibe out of the song and with a homemade touch of it. He nailed it!
The lobster fishing along the west coast of Sweden begins on the third monday in September every year. 7 AM the fishing starts and thousands of boats start searching for the black gold.
If you ever want to see adult Swedes jump around like frogs, then come to Sweden in late June.
Solstice is an astronomical event that occurs when the sun to reaches its northernmost extreme. Summer solstice in the northern hemisphere will happen around June 21st and we will experience this year’s longest day and shortest night. In Sweden this day is called Midsummer’s Eve and is celebrated throughout the country with food, drink, song and dance.
We will be talking quite a bit about Gothenburg in this blog. It is the second largest city of Sweden and the gateway to West Sweden. Gothenburg, or Goteborg as the locals call it, has a pulsing cosmopolitan vibe with top restaurants, shopping, nightlife and culture. But more on this later.
We found a promotional video on YouTube from Goteborg.com which gives a pretty comprehensive first look at the city. Enjoy!
