The last I saw of Sweden




Sixteen days ago I got up very very early and my father drove me and Johan to the airport. We went from Luleå to Stockholm, from Stockholm to Copenhagen and from Copenhagen to Berlin. It took 10 hours and we were both so excited and also a bit frightened because we weren't sure that the apartment was really ours - the landlord hadn't received our contract yet. It was a strange feeling to pack together our home in Gothenburg before Christmas and then be away for 2 weeks and go to Berlin straight from my parents.

Oh Sweden, I wonder when we will see eachother again. I've always wanted to know what I would miss if I left Sweden. Now I will know :) I already know one thing and it wasn't unexpected: the selection of candy.

  1. I have been enjoying the story of your move quite a bit. It's also kind of like you're taking a tour of my genealogy. You've covered Sweden, you're in Germany, and now if you just hit Norway and Ireland, you'll have a map of me. :)

    I'm so happy that things are going so well for you and Johan. I look forward to seeing the transformation of your apartment. It's inspiring because I'm doing a bit of that in my own home as well.

    Cheers!

  7. In Deutschland gibt es auch einige Süßigkeiten, die ich wärmstens empfehlen kann (ich wohne seit 1 1/2 Jahren in Stockholm und vermisse die dort immer): Kinderschokolade Riegel (die kleinen), Leibnitz Butterkeks mit Schokolade, Choco Crossies... dafür gibts Kanelbullar, Lussekatter und Semlor in Schweden, das gleicht fast alles aus ;-) Herzlich willkommen in Deutschland und Glückwunsch zur tollen Wohnung! Sieht traumhaft aus, beneidenswert (jetzt nicht unbedingt all die Arbeit, aber der Rest...)

  10. Som jag saknade lösviktsgodiset när jag bodde i England.
    Vilken fantastiskt fin sista bild av Sverige iallafall.

  11. vilken utsikt! om du längtar efter lösgodis, kanske du hitta något fint i dem många kiosker i berlin..- men det är inte jämförligt med dem 3286378473 sorter på ica såklart.

  12. it sounds crazy to me that you'd leave sweden; i'd do anything to live there! (but then, this is coming from a scandinavia-phile american hopelessly in wanderlust). i loved berlin when i was there (though not as much as stockholm) and i look forward to all the photooos.
