After a fruitless search for shoes yesterday in Stockholm, today in Gothenburg we stumbled across the cutest clog workshop. And they've been made in the area since the 1930s, originally by the parents of the storekeeper, no less. Needless to say I'm in love and in a bit of pain - they're hard to walk in but hopefully that will sort itself out.
So now there's not much more to do than drink another coffee and eat another kanelbullen (cinnamon bun) and/or kardemommeboller (cardamom bun). And go back to the shop to buy another pair or two :)
Cinnamon buns - I've almost eaten too many of these, if that's possible.
Buns with vanilla and jam - mmm!

Supermarket shelves and shop window displays are about all we've seen of Stockholm so far, as we arrived on Sunday afternoon and most things were closed, but I think I'm in love. It's cold but the sky is blue and everything looks beautiful and spring-like. And the sun sets late - around 9pm, I think - which is weird for us as the temperature is less than 10 degrees celsius (a lot less than, I think!)
Tomorrow will be a day for buying warmer clothes and walking and walking and walking and looking at lovely things. And not buying AU$10 cups of hot chocolate, as we did tonight (delicious and necessarily warming but definitely budget breaking!)

It's so nice to go from Autumn in Melbourne to Spring here (we're currently in Budapest, another unplanned stopover and the weather is amazing.) Here are some snaps of the spring flowers and plants we've seen along the way. Happy Saturday :)
