Something Swedish

Links

Fun:
Scandinavia and the World Comic: This is the best comic to read if you are looking for something to both entertain and educate. Each country (mostly Scandinavian but many countries are featured throughout the comic series) has a persona according to how that country acts, is perceived, the history of that country, how countries actually interact with one another. Under every comic is an explanation, from which I actually learned a lot about Sweden.
Swedish Television

  1. Very helpful thank you.

  2. I married my husband and he is from Halmstad as well. I am from Buffalo, NY. He moved over here though while I finished school. We are saving up money so we can move to Sweden. We met on an online game too! Thanks for this blog! It makes me feel like it can be done and won’t be as terrifying as I though it would be. D:
