Fartyg, fartyg, fartyg

Ships, ships, ships.  Goteborg is the place to go if you are interested in maritime history.  The city is a living maritime museum.  We were based near an area called "Masthuggets Torget"  which translates as mast cutters square. The Sjöfarts Museet or shipping museum was worth a visit to see their collection of figure heads and models.  The highlight, however, was the public transport system.  Our 24 hour ticket allowed us to spend the day riding the ferry around the archipelago.
