The ride was pretty uneventful and smooth, though possibly a little more side-to-side rocking that the ICE trains on most tracks. The coaches even lean to the left and right as the train goes around curves. There are lots of tunnels as you make your way out of Stockholm, as I found out trying to make a phone calls right after leaving the station, then basically rolling green (in the summer) hills, trees, and farmland all the way to the west coast. It is quite scenic. To me it looks a lot like Eastern Canada, or the North Eastern US.
The "3-course menu" was pretty basic, but a good sampling of Swedish food I suppose.
We arrived right on time in Gothenburg, so I headed right outside the station to my hotel for the night.
