    We spent a rather chilly weekend here in Gothenburg. The wind was truly icy and we couldn't spend too long outside without a hot drink to warm up! We went to most of the places recommended including the some uber cool coffee houses. I walked about 14 kilometres on Saturday but somewhat less yesterday as we had snow... it was too cold to keep the camera out all the time and the RX1 that I also took hardly got a look in, both batteries died in the cold despite me trying to warm them in my hand!

    Indeed, we looked at the temperature in Malaga longingly..... 30 degrees, plus, there was no obvious religious aspect of Easter here whereas we enjoy the processions and coming together of our local town in Spain over Easter normally.
