Why this blog?

I love living in Sweden. I love Swedish people. I love Swedish values.

I was born in England but Sweden has, quite simply, become my home. After 15 years of living in Sweden, and working with cultural awareness training, I decided it was time to share my observations on life, culture and society.

My views, my perspectives and my experiences in this cold and warm country in the north.

    (Feel free to correct my English, Neil.)

  2. Great idea! You always have such interesting reflections about us Swedes, like that we have to be so so trygga, trygga, trygga. Looking forward to read more!
