Gothenburg Travel Fair a Sign of Spring

Winter is about to lose its grip of Gothenburg. A sign of spring is the annual travel fair TUR. As a kid I went to collect stickers and candy. Exhibitors still give out stickers but who collects them theese days, honestly?

Later I went to collect information about travel destinations abroad and to be inspired to travel.

Nowadays I visit the fair to discover more on Sweden, the country to which I have returned after expatriate life.

The fair opens to the public on Friday March 22 and closes on Sunday. 500 exhibitors, more than 90 countries and regions represented make sure there is something for everyone to discover. There are usually great offers and packages too. See official website here – in Swedish.

My tips to you
– comfy shoes
– backpack for the catalogues

My pro tip
– lightweight cabin bag with weels. The best. Particularly for bookfairs.

Happy hunting!
