Took a small vacation to Sweden for a few days. Landing in Gothenburg the view from the plane was one of the most stunning landscapes i had ever seen, so so green. A small town where there is no darkness... yes, we had no night. Summers in Gothenburg are well known for their long days. At 1am the skies were an ombre of beautiful blues into black in the far distant. The aged buildings and monuments gave character to the streets. With names i couldn't pronounce i knew i was in a foreign place, yet the towns' friendly people made us feel so unexpectedly at home. Maybe it was the mix of the sun, light rain, and the sweet summer breeze, but coming from Dubai it was so refreshing to be able to take a deep breath and not feel suffocated by humidity.

Walking along the Avenue with its countless cafes, restaurants and bars with outdoor seating, all complete with folded blankets on the seats in case of weather changes, it reminded me of how much i missed this setting, Dubai being unbearably hot right now to do the same. The food here also didn't fail to impress, breaking my usual healthy eating ways (or at least what I've convinced myself it to be), i indulged in a passionfruit cheesecake and cappuccino in the towns busiest cafe also named Cappuccino. (Well you can't go to Cappuccino and not order one). Sitting outside under the sun, huge winged rivals eyed up my delicious desert. A very persistent seagull circled me and made many attempts to try to grab and fly away with my cake until i was rescued by one of the staff there.

For dinner we headed to Caleo, recommended by a friend, it was the best of fine dining. I ordered a duck which tasted so good i can still taste it today. And i have never tasted a sauce/puree which had such a punch to it. My partner also (on numerous occasions) expressed how perfect his steak was. A definite thumbs up, if your ever in the area, make sure you try it there, i highly recommend it.

The term "inn" historically characterized a rural hotel which provided lodging, food and refreshments, and accommodations for travelers' horses. To capitalize on this nostalgic image many typically lower end and middling modern motor hotel operators seek to distance themselves from similar motels by styling themselves "inns", regardless of services and accommodations provided.Want to know more?
