So after a quick lunch and very elongated factory tour we headed back to the delivery center to get a view and test drive of my new car. The rep went over everything with us, and although I was a little saddened that I would not be driving off today because of two missing red Swedish license plates, I was happy none-the-less to take the car for a test drive on their "closed track" (basically an enclosed road that went for about 200 yards). I was so excited to be driving this new car that I even let Ashley drive (she has driven stick once since she was 16). This car's clutch is a joke...I don't even think my dad could manage to stall the thing (and if you're wondering, no Ashley did not stall at all).
So after a test drive we headed back to Gothenburg to our new hotel. After checking out our new digs we headed outside to (GASP...) enjoy the sun. YES, the sun had come out so we took full advantage by sitting atop the steps of the Goingsplaten looking down over Poseidon and the Avenyn for a few hours, taking in the rays.
After relaxing for a few hours we took a long walk around town since Ash had yet to see much of it. We made our way back through the Hage (old town) through the University area and over to the Linne' district before heading back toward the Avenyn
Tomorrow we will actually (cross your fingers!) get the car and head out to Stromstad and camping on the Koster Islands a few hours to the north of here...
Until next time:
Catch ya on the flip side,
