Our summer road trip included getting to see quite a bit more of Sweden including Söderköping, Kalmar, Öland, Göteborg, Fjällbacka, Sälen, Mora, and Falun.
Söderköping was the most charming little town, situated near the eastern end of the Göta Kanal. Kalmar and Öland are worth a visit especially for history buffs, both boasting impressive castles. Göteborg is Sweden's second largest city, vibrant, lots to see, and full of culture. Mora and Falun are located in Dalarna where the dala horse and falun red come from (same red many Swedish houses are painted).
