Well it is going to be a very busy few months ahead for me. First thing is that I need to apply for my Swedish personal number. Will look into that next week.
Due to work I will be traveling a lot more than I first thought, mainly to London, Paris and Barcelona. This will begin in December and will last for approximately 18 months to 2 years. I will essentially be out of Sweden for at least one week a month and from what I have read I may not even need to apply for a Swedish Personal number as if you leave the country to fly to another EU country every three weeks then you are still classed as in transit.
But we shall see.
I just came back from a good two day trip to London, caught up with some friends, relaxed but of course got stressed out with the ridiculous travel system there. Seriously it’s only a matter of time before someone dies on the tube due to overcrowding. They shut seven stations on my way from Acton to Victoria and I head at least two announcements of people being on the track. It’s just 14 months until the Olympics and I’m afraid the tube is in the worst state I’ve ever known.
But enough about London.
It snowed here in Sweden last night and the drive back from Skavsta to Norrkoping was horrendous. Luckily my girlfriend is a good driver and managed to navigate through the blizzard that faced us, though we almost had a crash when we slid on the ice. I know understand why Swedes must have winter tyres on their cars. I’ve been in some bad snow in Scotland but if that is just the start then I would hate to see what winter is really like.
But we survived.
Speaking of survival check out what I managed to get into my suitcase without breaking. Happy days!!! This means no insane prices from the Swedish store in Stockholm and at last I can actually enjoy my chips J
Have a good weekend all.
