Luggage + Liseberg

Today was extra special for us not just because we got to visit Liseberg and not just because we got to visit with family and friends. It was extra special because our luggage finally caught up with us. This has become a bit too common for us. We had a short connecting flight in Frankfurt and that’s where our luggage stayed. And with Frankfurt getting snowed in, we were without our luggage for 2-1/2 days. No worries, we rolled with it.

Liseberg is a theme park that opened in 1923. It reminds me of the spirit of Cypress Gardens in Florida. It is a historic park with many traditions including a medieval village, Christmas village and several story-themed areas but stays current with modern roller coasters, a Scandinavian market emphasizing the latest designs of home goods and shows.

Today, we watched an ice show called Snödrottningen or the Snow Queen. It was very good. It ended with a fantastic fireworks display.

Below are some pictures. Cheryl and I are very fortunate to be able to spend time with our daughters and their boyfriends Andreas (Ashley) and Noah (Tara). And we enjoy having Cheryl’s sister Tonya with us too. And Andreas’ mom is a fabulous host going above and beyond for us. Thank you Annika!
