Yours truly will be taking over Lund for 10 weeks as an international student. I'lll have a lot of time off, so hopefully I can get away once in a while. How are the Swedish people, the whole Swedish atmosphere? The only thing I have heard so far is that Sweden doesnt have normal periods of light and dark, depression is high, and its damn cold. Anything to add to that? Thanks!

Sweden is supposed to be a beautiful country...so I hear

I am visiting my Swedish sister for 5 days at the end of May in Stockholm....The people there are beautiful...lots of materialism...lots of culture.....yes, it is cold...but, thats why they have spas, saunas, and alcohol over there....

check out Ryan Air's flight deals from London to Stockholm...unbeatable price!!!

I spent a month in sweden a couple years ago, and it was beautiful! I was staying in a small town outside of Goteburg. It was really nice, everybody was beautiful, but it wasn't that cold (I was there during July). If you can, try to get to some islands on the westcoast, they are so beautiful and warm in the summer. We were swimming in the 20 degree water! Just watch out for jellyfish and lighting storms! Those islands are so cool, because they are just covered with little summer houses, but there are no roads, everyone takes a ferry or boat to get there, and they either walk or cycle around the island. If you are in Goteburg make sure to go to the Liseberg amusement park and pay a visit to the HangOver rollercoaster! Stockholm is also nice, although it was a little rainy when I was there. But worth checking out. I was there on an exchange and staying with a family, and wasn't really old enough to go to/appreciate a bar or pub, but I'm sure there are lots of nice places around.

I'm going to be in Sweden as well at the end of July/Early August, and will be going back to Goteburg, stopping to visit friends in Lund as well! Should be nice!
