North to Norway

Seems I'm bad luck for the home team...

After a rather long night/day on the ferry (I was able to sleep this time - calm crossing), that had some amazing views in the morning:

I arrived in Stockholm, and hoped onto a train to Gothenburg. It's Sweden's second largest city and seems very cool. I arrived in town and found my hostel after a 45 minute walk, dumped my gear, and headed out to see a Swedish Elite League hockey game. Very cool vibe (again), in a very cool arena, but unfortunately the home team lost 3-1. I've now been to three non-exhibition games, and in each case the home team has lost. I hope I'm not bad luck as it appears the NHL has finally got their act sorted out so I'll likely be able to see some Oilers games this spring - we should be kicking ass with all the practice a lot of our players have had!

Spent most of the day wandering around in the rain checking out the old part of Gothenburg and seeing some museums in town. Based on what I've seen I'm really liking the city, and will likely spend another day or two here on my way back down to Copenhagen in a few weeks after my time in Norway.
