ever been to Sweden?

twice, each time around an hour or two, this is how long it takes for the ferry to re-pack, change passengers and start back to Poland. does it count? ;)

haven't seen any bike around the ferry though. ;)

I don't know about Norway and Swedem. I believe it's a bit expensive. But Finland has some marvellous sheds. The dark wood they use, and their rustic, idiosyncratic charm is almost enough to make me want to go there.

marvellous sheds.

of great interest to donkeys of course...

Sweden and Norway have never really interested me, Iceland on the other hand. Not been but I think its a place I would be making plans to see in the next couple of years.

Spitzbergen - now that sounds interesting, not only for humans, but donkeys and polar bears too.

Lived in Stockholm for about 6 months, give or take. Lovely place shame it was so expensive and the people were mainly tuned into mig.fm. Nonetheless had an enjoyable stay. :)

I knew a man who went to Sweden for six months. He was hoping to meet a tall blonde Swedish lady.
He met a short brunette.
He returned to the UK with a stolen bicycle.

Been there last year and really, really liked it. Love the language. The music. The people. The parks. The architecture. The history. The food.

One have to be a rich Pole to come to Norway or Sweden , Sweden is not as bad as Norway ,but both countries are very expensive. Bring as much food and drinks as you can if going to any of these countries. Alcohol is ridulously expensive. In Norway a bottle of "cheap" vodka is about 125PLN ,in Sweden its about 100PLN.

A Bottle of Dworek vodka in Norway is 150PLN!!

Hejsan!
Ja, jag har varit tvaa gaanger i Sverige, i Goteborg och i Boraas. Goteborg ar en absolut vacker stad.

Unfortunately though, I'll have to continue in English (or Polish), as this is PF.
I've never been to Ystad, although of course I've heard of it.
Next on my trip though is Stockholm, 'Staden paa vattnet'! (Miasto na jeziorze).

Hej daa!

Can't really get an idea of why people speak so much about Sweden.
Sweden has and is nothing, compared to the other Scandinavian nations.
Originally, Sweden didn't even have connection to the sea westwards, and Scania with its surroundings never ought to be described as Swedish territory.

Porta > That's why, our stores is crowded constantly by desperate Swedes, who load their wagons and whole tourist busses with our spirits. Norwegians come here as well, but it's much easier for the Scanians to do so.

- A nice sense of humour. Gives you the taste of Sweden.

I think I'd rather abstain from visiting.

Sweden is a great country (like many others)
Great persons came from there.
The Nobel prize is named after the Swedish Alfred Nobel.
The Celsius degree system comes from a Swede called Anders Celsius.
What about ABBA, Eagle Eye Cherry, Europe, The Hives, etc.
Beautiful girls. Good national football team...
Viking (Rûs, Varegues) descents.
King Zygmunt III Vasa.

:) LoL

Hej, Dan88Swe!

Varifraan i Sverige kommer du saa? Jag kanner ratt bra Goteborg,Boraas och Bohuslan. Tyvaar har jag aldrig varit tillbaka sedan 1989, och det ar ju ett styck tid. Naagra manniskor hade berattet mig, att de flesta svenskarna talar engelska, nastan som sitt modersmaal. Det var inte sant, darfor att, maanga unga studenter kunde forstaa amerikanska vardagsidiomer, men de gjorde saa maange fel, att jag inte kunde fortsatta prata med dem. De ville garna forbattre min svenska, men de hade ingen lust till, att jag skulle vilja korrigera deras 'misatagar' paa engelska!

And now (Forum Rules) in English. I loved Sweden; its cooking, its landscapes, culture etc. and was forewarned that most of them spoke English. I was disappointed (besviket) though that their English wasn't better than it actually was. Gosh, even educated Poles often speak better English (more classically correct, that is!) - -:) I found it immeasurably more practical and enjoyable to speak Swedish, rather than English, with them.

Hi! Marek
Yes I think you'r correct, we always want to be so great, and show off our language-knowledge, but unfortunately we'r not that good I think.

I live right now in Lund, south of Borås you can say. I am from Laholm, north of Borås. This city much bigger, but also it's compact. And if you will complain thats ok :) I hope you understand. Your welcome to ask anything.

Go' mor'ron, Dan Gunnarsson!
Appreciate your prompt reply as well as your e-mail (which I just answered!) No, your English seems about par for the course, at least for most Swedes whom I've met during my sojourns (uppehaal) to Sweden, not to mention those whom I've also met abroad. No understanding difficulties I can see thus far.

Hope to be in touch again soon!

I don't agree with that. I found many more Swedes speak English than they do in Poland. In Poland more people under 40 speak more English, but in Sweden even older people know it.

Morning (in fact it's not morning here, hehe)

No understanding difficulties

Thats great

in Sweden even older people know

Yeah! i think you'r right there, it's most truly because they are sending english Television at most and many people even just are learning because they will travel abroad and such things. I don't know about english in Poland, but I don't think that's that usual.

Well, if you wonder anything, just ask.

Bye!
