We got a tip off Gothenburg had the best fair (amusement park) in the whole of Sweden so we had to check it out. Just a 10 min tram from central we arrived Liseberg. Its not cheap, they charge like a wounded bull but its well worth it, the place is off the hook ! We got there about 4pm and stayed till about 10:30pm. If you can avoid going in school holidays, do so, otherwise expect to spend a lot of your time queuing for rides !
I have to give a special mention to the "Haunted House" at this place ! Maxi said it was his favourite ride back in Oz and begged me and Troy to go with him. I was skeptical as most haunted house rides I've ever been on have been pretty average. After much hounding, we payed the extra 40 SEK and went in. No word of a lie, it was the best ride in the joint. You walk through all these different scary rooms and basically get the living crap scared out of you. But its also kinda fun, 2 thumbs up from me !
We opted for an early night in Goteborg as a big day down in Tylosand awaited, after the fair we smashed in a Kebab and hit the hay early.
Early nights are not my friend, I was wide awake at 4am. We hit our hotels (The first G) buffet breakfast like there was no tomorrow. The food at this place was amazing and the service was even better. If your heading to Goteborg anytime soon i highly recommend it !
Full of delicious Swedish meatballs we rolled downstairs to central station and jumped on the fast train to Halmstad. I really dig trains and the whole experience was fun for me.
Unfortunately we arrived to a not so sunny Tylosand beach where we got to meet the lifeguards and hit the water. The water over this side is a little warmer than the Baltic sea so our crew and a couple of the lifeguards from here went out and had a really good 3km beach run followed by 3km board paddle. Felt really good to be throwing the arms over, we even got a couple of fun waves was out the front. The lifeguard service over here is twice the size as Tofta and they also train all their junior lifeguards at the station. Im really looking forward to getting to know everyone here, learning how they work and having as much fun as on Gotland. I'm going to need all of you to do a little sun dance for us though. If my iPhone powered by TravelSIM is correct, mother nature isn't going to be kind to us over the next couple of days :(
We have a pretty exciting schedule ahead so hopefully I'll have an interesting read for you'll in a couple of days !
If not we'll all be singing this
I'LL BE BACK
