It's been wonderful to be back in beautiful Sweden!
I especially enjoy the great public transportation system - such a contrast to what we have in the United States.
This time around, the apartment that the University of Gothenburg has provided for me is not in walking distance of the School of Business, Economics and Law where I am a Visiting Professor, so my commute has been by public transit.
My favorite mode of transportation here is trolleys! I have a month's pass of unlimited travel and it is money well spent.
There are three types of trolleys (also known as trams) in Gothenburg, based on their ages (vintage) as well as a trolley that one can rent for special events and that flies the Ukrainian flag (my heritage) and is featured below.
the largest tram network system in Sweden. Some of the various trolleys that I have ridden are below.
Sometimes though, I will purposely hop off the trolley one or two stops before my final destination so that I can walk (another favorite mode of transport for me) and experience the beauty of the landscape here as well as the architecture. Below is my favorite tree in Gothenburg.
