Feeling Christmassy!

We had Daniel's Mum and Dad to stay this weekend, and no visit to Gothenburg in December would be complete without a trip to Liseberg. To reach Liseberg theme park we took an old 1920's tram that they only run during the Christmas period. It had beautiful wooden interiors and is complete with a driver and conductor in old fashioned uniforms and white gloves!

All of the rides at Liseberg are shut during the winter, but instead they cover the park with just under 5 million tiny fairy lights and have lots of little market stall selling Christmassy produce.

They even had an ice bar, which is made from the same ice they use to build the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi in the North of Sweden. I don't think the bar staff looked as though they were enjoying themselves too much!

I think our tree needs a few more lights before it can compete with Liseberg!
