We timed our trip to include Sweden’s annual mid-summer holiday with traditional folk dancing. And as pictured below, everyone can dance around the maypole.

Volvo’s factory is located in Göteborg, aka Gothenburg, Sweden’s second largest city, and the perfect summertime tourist destination. Of course, I’m biased. I have Swedish ancestors and cousins, and my grandfather immigrated to America from this port city.

Next up, an article about last November’s Curaçao trip. And if you aren’t sure where that is or haven’t been there, stay tuned! ITN is filled with real travelers’ tips and advice on international travel.
