So we are at 30 days until our trip. My wife and I are super excited. All our flights, hotels, and dinner reservations are booked. And we completed the final finance paperwork and signed contract this last weekend so we are official, official now!!
Our car is a 2019 V90 T6 in Savile Grey with basically all the options. It was built on 4/24, so it is there waiting for us.
I thought I would share our quick trip here as many others have done. I've found those very helpful in the planning of our trip.
I heard back from the FDC that my requested accessories (Polestar, sunglasses holder, load carriers, and illuminated trunk plate) are being added. I'm also contemplating the iPad holder and split exhaust tips, but we'll see...
As for our trip! We leave California on Friday the 16th. We go through Copenhagen and land in Gothenburg around 3pm on Saturday. We are staying at the Clarion Sat and Sun nights. Going to have dinner at The Barn on Sat night and Norda on Sun night. Plan for Sunday is to explore Gothenburg. We have some things we'd like to visit if possible:
- Cafe Husaren (really want to try a Hagabullen)
- Museum of Art
- Skansen Kronan
We then take delivery on Monday 8/19. After the tour we are driving up north a little to Smogen. Staying at Somgens Hafvsbad and will have dinner there that night. On Tuesday we are going to explore up in that area. There looks like a cool animal sanctuary and watercolor museum to visit, but playing the day by ear. We'll find somewhere to eat on Tuesday night. There is also a Scotch maker in the area I really want to tour.
On Wednesday we head back into Gothenburg and will be staying at Hotel Pigalle. Dinner on Wednesday night is at Thornstroms kok. Thursday will be a "what-ever" day. The Volvo Museum looks interesting, but that may be to much car stuff for the wife in a single week. We'll be having dinner at Atelier in Hotel Pigalle on our last night. Then on Friday we drop the car off in the morning and catch a flight that afternoon to head home.
I will be sure to post photos from the trip once we are there.
