...If so, I will be entrenching upon your soil from June 4 to 11.
Ok, more info. Thanks to Volvo and the Swedish Tourism Board, I'm getting a free trip to Sweden to promote this CAR + VACATION contest (what a charmingly straightforward name) through the power of food blogging (to come on Serious Eats). I hope that isn't seen as selling out, although if I ever drop, "I LOVE VOLVO, YOU MUST BUY A VOLVO NOW!" into conversation for no reason, now you know why.
Seriously though, the woman I'm in contact with on Sweden's tourism board has been super helpful and is working on making a food itinerary based on the kinds of food I like. This isn't like other press trips where a tourism representative guides you from restaurant to restaurant. Oh, another thing that makes this trip awesome: I was allowed to bring a guest, and Kåre secured a week off work to come with me and be my driver (in a Volvo, of course).
I know, I'm insanely lucky. I get to spend a non-vacation week with the boyfriend I sparingly see in a country I've wanted to visit for years, all without going broke. I figure the luck will be equalized down the road by cancer or a natural disaster or something.
I don't know our exact itinerary, but I've been told the general driving route: start in Gothenburg, go up the Swedish West Coast, turn back south, stop again in Gothenburg, go further to Skåne, and end somewhere near Malmö. We'll go to Copenhagen to fly home since there we can get direct flights.
Sooo...I doubt I have many/any readers in Sweden, but I figured I'd check if anyone is in those cities. I don't know what we're eating, but I do know it wouldn't hurt to have extra eaters! :)
