My talented boyfriend, Tom who's a teacher and also an Illustrator (@jomtonesillustration) just drew this! It's me in front of Turning Torso, an icon of the Malmö skyline and Scandinavia's tallest building. Designed by architect, Santiago Calatrava, it was built to replace the Kockums Crane (The bastion of Malmö's skyline, previously). #MySweden Photo: @scandinathan
I just realised, I haven't introduced myself fully yet. My name's Nathan (@scandinathan) and I live in the Sorgenfri area of Sweden's third largest city, Malmö with my partner, Tom (@jomtones / @jomtonesillustration) (to the left of me) who's also Welsh. We both come from Wales' second city, Swansea and moved here, together in July 2017 partly because we're Scandiphiles/ Nordic Nerds and party because of Brexit.?? We have been received by Malmö with open arms and have truly fallen in love with the place. It's a hub of innovation, good food and has easy access to Copenhagen and the rest of Europe. It is here where I've been able to hone my craft as a food writer, set up a breakfast pop-up, @brekkieklubben and newly made English guide for Gourmet food tour company, @matkaravanmalmo, as well as being the Fika guy for @malmo_cm. ?? Is there anything you'd like me to show you this week/ want to know about me? ??????? #MySweden
What annoys you the most about your city/neighbourhood?
I awake to a foggy Malmö. Very appropriate as Malmö is one half home, to the Crime drama series, 'The Bridge/Bron/Broen' along with the other half set in Copenhagen. Hugely popular in the UK, I'm currently re-watching it and noticing how many scenes are filmed in Malmö. Have you seen 'The Bridge'? #MySweden Photo: @scandinathan
One job I do here in Malmö, is I'm the English language tour guide for Gourmet food tour company, @matkaravanmalmo. Today I showed around two great guys from New York around @malmosaluhall. I showed them: @falafelandburgers, @malmstensfisk , @lanthandelmalmosaluhall, @limhamnskottovilt, @hedvigsdalpizza, @mollansost, @stjakobssaluhallen, @chocolattehelsingborg and @favvoglass. My picks of the foodhall if you're ever in Malmö! #MySweden Photo: @scandinathan
