Sunday 12th of June 2016
and we arrived to Go:teborg a few minutes after midnight. The train trip had been kind of OK. I was almost falling asleep, well, I might have dozed off for a few Central Stationen i Göteborg - Train station in Gothenburgminutes. But I didn't want to fall sleep as it would be easier to fall asleep when coming on board Ternvag.

Saturday night and there were more than 2 passengers drinking beer on the train. Maybe some of the passengers were a wee bit loud, but no problem and by the time we were in Halmstad I was almost alone.

And I was not impressed by the family, or if it was 2 families with children, 8 to 12 years old or so. Parents drunk returning form Central Stationen i Göteborg - Train station in GothenburgDenmark where they had bought beer and now they were on the way back home.

Anyway, I might have dozed off for a moment as I was very tired so it was nice to reach the train station in Go:teborg and I just had a short taxi ride to Ternvag in Skarvikshamnen.

And this train trip to Go:teborg makes it to the history books. First time ever I go to Go:teborg with Öresundståget, and of course, first time for me going through the tunnel under Hallandsåsen. They opened the tunnel just after I signed off Ternvag last time and the tunnel was closed. And we Central Stationen i Göteborg - Train station in Gothenburgremember that I was going by buss to Helsingborg last time I signed off.

I got off the train and I walked to the taxi stand and there were a few people waiting for taxi. There were a few taxis waiting, but it was the Scooby Doo companies.

They have a very bad reputation and if you come to Go:teborg there are only 3 taxi company I trust. Taxi Kedjan, Mini Taxi and Göteborg Taxi. And as expected, the taxi drivers at the stand Central Stationen i Göteborg - Train station in Gothenburgwere upset that I didn't wanted to go with them.
- I wait for Taxi Kedjan
- I can go
- I don't want to go with you

None of the waiting passengers wanted to go with these cars and I told them that they could blame themselves for their bad reputation. They prey on tourists coming to town and they charge millions for going around the corner.

I was tired and I choose a Taxi Göteborg even though I was waiting for a car from Taxi Kedjan. The driver didn't know where Skarvikshamnen where and I changed car. The second driver had to call someone to find out where Skarvikshamnen was.

We drove in to Skarvikshamnen after having to show our IDs at the gate. The driver told me that this was Oljehamnen and that he had never heard the name Skarvikshamnen before. We reached Ternvag and I paid the taxi driver and I walked 50 meters to the gangway.
