Mmmm cheese!

Yesterday we spent the day wandering and driving around Gothenburg trying to work out which areas we would like or not like to live in. Daniel is still waiting to sign his contract but hopefully we'll be moving around April/May time. We liked the areas of Majorna, Masthugget and Kungsladugård to the west of the centre of town, so will start looking for a flat there as soon as Daniel signs his contract. They were close enough to the centre of town for going out and shopping, but far enough out to feel as though they had there own little community. We've heard some horror stories of how long it takes to find a flat in Gothenburg so fingers crossed we'll be lucky and it won't take too long!

During our wander round town we came across a tiny little cheese shop, and popped in to see if they had any really strong cheddar as it is one of the things we miss most from home. We were given 3 types of cheddar to try ranging from 12 to 47 months old! The 47 month old one was so strong it made my mouth itchy! We decided on a 36 month old one which was really strong and tasty, so now we know we have to move to this part of Gothenburg to supply our cheese addiction!

Good luck with the big move. I certainly hope you get to be near your cheese shop. I really miss decent cheese as well. The stuff they sell here is so tasteless and lacks a really nice texture.

And don't forget those great British snags from Dave Taylor!

Oh best of luck on your move. My fingers are crossed for you that you get the flat you want.

I love cheese. I would have so much fun with you tasting all kinds. My sister and I really have that in common. We can go to the cheese shop and get a wide variety and have a nice long chat.

Take care, Connie

I love the cheese shops here in Sweden. There is not as much variety of cheese in South Africa, although that is changing with public demand. There is a super cheese shop in Helsingor. I don´t remember the name of it, but you cannot miss it if you go walking through the streets.
