Travelling with a large family is very expensive. We can't take the best hotel or travelling methods if we are going away all of us 6. I've promised Oskar a trip to Gothenburg and Liseberg fun park long enough.
We took the bus to the trainstation, then the train. In Gothenburgh we took the tram to our hostel, were we rented a 6 beds room in a very simple standard. But it was ok and went ok to live like this for a few days.
I also realized that this way to travel is far more friendly to the environment.
My goal for the trip were the rollercoasters of Liseberg :). Balder; the one built of wood was extremely fun to ride, with a 70 grade slope, negative G forces and the shaking woodenframe.
Here's a view of Balder and the too short Canon (with loops).
View to the other side of the old Ferris wheel (the new Ferris wheel and a piece of the large rollercoaster).
Gustav; you can see the top of his head, had no problem with riding the rollercoasters at all but the Ferris wheel where frightening, it was too high up for him.
It is interesting to look at people on a fun park. Every one has extremely bad taste (ok I was dressing casual for the day as well). I mean, what to they think of these people; a 9 year old boy with a cap with the words; I love haters, a ca 20 year old girl with a shirt saying; I just came and a troll face, at the hostel a young girl with a neck tatto saying; for you I will (it could be follow underneath but that was all I saw). For me, this is bad taste, what do you think?
We visited Universeum the next day. It's a museum with aquariums of swedish fishes and nature, a tropical hall with huge aquariums with sharks and pirayas, birds and butterflies. A crime lab, space and natural forces exhibition and more.

Last day was travel day. Half the day was shopping at the big mall, everyone were extremely tired and sour. When we got on the train it had no food serving and it got 1 hour late. Half way home we had to change to a bus, yet nothing to drink. We came home about midnight with a whole day of nothing to eat or drink. I think the kids were amazingly patient during the whole trip (in contrary to me).
Imagine travelling with this huge shark balloon.
