  1. It`s interesting to read about your first days in Sweden and your loyalty and impression of the “Swedish model”. And you have noticed how important “fika” is!
    Welcome to Sandkärr!

    • Great. Be sure to watch the Dragon Tattoo films if you have to seen them yet. Really, really good. Hollywood won’t be able to top them.

  2. Hi!
    I took a look at your blog and I think it’s very useful because of the information you provide and the experiences you share. I work for InterNations.org, the largest social network catering to expats working and living abroad. Our 600.000+ members interact with each other in a secure online & offline environment about their individual and shared experience abroad. Your content suits very good with ours related to Sweden. Therefore we are interested in submitting a sponsored post to your website.
    Is this something you might be interested in?
    I’m looking forward to hearing from you! I really appreciate answers, even if they are negative 😉

  3. An American who Married to a wonderful Swedish woman for 6 years. We have a 1 year old baby boy! Moving to Gavle in about 4 years. Your blog has been very inspirational for me. Thank you so much for the updates and sharing your experiences.

    • Chris, Thanks for you kind words. From my own experience, it would be hard NOT to thrive in the society that Swedes have created. True, they have their problems, but compared to most of the rest of the world, this is a paradise. I am sure you will do well when you move here, especially with a Swedish wife you can help you navigate the language!

  4. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences! I am interested in emigrating to Scandanavia from the Bay Area and am finding it difficult to get a good picture of what it might be like, and your posts really help. Do you have any advice or suggestions? I’m single, retirement age.

  5. I know it is a while since you updated the blog but it has so far made interesting reading. I love Halmstad and generally the west coast of Sweden having first visited in 1998, nothing like a stroll along Tylösand beach when the sun is setting. I had to smile when you made it in the Halmstad paper, snap, back in 2010 after an event at Hotel Tylösand I planned! Cute dogs also, from someone else who has a Jack Russell!

    • Yeah, I only kept the blog for the first year after we moved here. People insisted I keep it going, so I kind of half-assed it the next year but it has been dormant since. Glad you have found it interesting. My initial purpose was to document our first year here and dive into all the Swedes traditions, etc., from my point of view.
