South of Gothenburg, Sweden's second city, is the Southern Archipelago and the island of Brännö. The port is about a hour tram ride south from the city center, the Island I visited is another 20 minute ferry ride from the port.
If you have a Gothenburg tram day pass it also works for the ferry, the timing worked such that as I arrived at the port, the next ferry was to the island of Brännö. I asked the ticket desk attendant and she recommended this would be a good place to visit.
Ferry's proudly show the flag of Sweden.
The ferry makes a few stops before arriving at the port of Brännö-Rödsten, the route to the port passes closely between other islands.
The island i scattered with cute little homes.
The ticket office person recommended visiting at least two places on the island, one was a look-out-point and the second was a cafe. I decided to walk to the look-out area first, just follow the signs to Utkiken... Which I assumes means lookout area.
Atop the hill was this little hut, it was locked.
But looking inside, the walls are covered with photos and there appears to be a guest book. I was not able to sign the guest book since the door was locked but if someone visits this place and it's unlocked, please leave a note for me.
This is the view looking out over the sound.
I was very lucky to have great weather on the my full day in Sweden. The day before, when I landed it was raining and I believe it was raining for weeks before my visit too.
Lots of houses have these very artistic mail boxes.
Also on the island was a museum, but the museum was also closed except for a small closet on the side of the building which contained a bookstore. If you leave 5 Kronor (Swedish dollars) you can take a book.
I had only an hour and a half to stay on the island before the return ferry arrived. If I missed the next ferry it was an additional 2 hour wait for the second one. After visiting the look out, I went to the cafe but by the time I got to the cafe it was to late to order food. So i decided to have a local beer and a cookie.
The cafe also had statues of boats and other marine things all over the place.
The return ferry was different from the one I arrived in.
