The flat city

June 22, 2011

I grew up in a quite flat city and Berlin is flat as well. Gothenburg was the opposite of flat. What I love most about flat is that it’s easier to ride a bike and that you can see so far away – the clouds! Oh the clouds! I missed that so much in Gothenburg. Last week I started missing one thing (wow, one…!) from Gothenburg: the fresh shrimps.

    I have just been 2 days in Göteborg – I love the Swedish shrimps and had it for lunch both days. I might move to Götenborg next year from Denmark… Can you recommend any good Göteborg-based bloggers?!

    we have so many huge hills here in Lancashire, especially in the town where I live. It's almost impossible to ride a bike unless you are an athlete!! I absolutely love the artwork in the last picture…brightened my day!

    My partner and I love flat cities because we love to rent a moped during our vocations and comb the city in and out. Savannah and Miami were awesome and now we are considering Portland.

    O Sandra, I too love the flat and view! I was born in and live on the Canadian Prairies. My first Mountain experience was driving a standard DAtsun up a street so steep in Vancouver, BC! Stalled of course, out of fear and nearly 'kakked' myself. ha. Love your 'in the glass' photo, orange-wrapping-flower-thingy…o all of them! xo Su

    Those clouds are absolutely perfect and oh how I miss the seafood in Australia…

    The piece in the last photo is by the artist Gould. Him and his partner Various are really amazing. We have them in the gallery I work at!
