For what it's worth, the most amazing display of northern lights I've ever witnessed I watched from omberget in Holmsund.

They probably chose to air it around midnight because it's such old news.

QUOTE (007)
gals. furu is going from umeå to arlanda. do all trains from umeå stop at arlanda? (i don't think so, but i would imagine many or most do)


Ah, I was reading it the wrong way around I guess smile.gif

As far as I know, all trains heading from the north into Stockholm stop at Arlanda,

Also, there is a mini hotel thingy at arlanda that rent out pretty cheap rooms with a bed and nothing else, just like a box for sleeping. I stayed in one once, and tiny does not begin to describe it. Very small, but does the job. They even rent out rooms by the hour if you're that way inclined wink.gif

Try searching for Arlanda rather than Stockholm and you might find it.

Some trains go all the way to Umeå, while some only stop in Vännäs and then you have to get on a bus from there to Umeå and get off at the hospital (NUS) or the bus station. If it says Umeå C i guess the train will take you all the way there.

Mind you, one time when I was going there they made us all get on a bus in Vännäs anyway, only to change their minds after a while and stick us back on the train again. I wasn't too amused having to drag my luggage around for no reason at 7 am when I could have been sleeping still wink.gif

hi furu. if you end up taking the train to umeå, don't bother making your way into stockholm as the train actually makes a stop at arlanda on the way up.

just thought i'd help you save some time and money smile.gif

I wouldn't worry about it, you already have your annual leave and pension sorted out, which are the kind of things you have to made sure are in your contract when you're not covered by a collective agreement. Your individual agreement with them seems decent enough, so no need to worry about a collective one.

I share 36 sq m with my boyfriend and have been doing so for the past three years (before that we lived even smaller). With not a lot of stuff it works just fine, although I'm definitely looking forward to moving out in the summer and getting something three times as big.

I'm from the area in question and I can tell you that yes, there is indeed a train track between Umeå and Holmsund. However, it is only cargo trains that run there apart from one day a year (tågets dag) when you can take the train from Holmsund to Strömpilen for a small fee or perhaps it free, can't remember exactly.

There are tons of people commuting from Holmsund to Umeå daily and plenty of buses to choose from in the daytime (evenings are a bit worse).

Botniabanan is allegedly going to be up and running in 2010.. we'll se about that.

Hehe, you can usually tell from a few blocks away.

It's really tasty stuff though, but you don't want to put too much fish in your "klämma" as you won't be able to taste all the other things. I like mine with a lot of mandelpotatis, a bit of red onion, a tiny bit of gräddfil and just a few tiny pieces of strömming.

It's best to eat it in summer, when you can keep the smell outdoors, even if the flies get a bit annoying.

I don't know what it is you want to apply to or so, but just thought I'd let you know that even if you apply in April you can send your grades in later. For example, people who go to gymnasiet here and then want to study at university the term after will apply in April but not get their grades until June, at which point they will send their new grades to VHS who deals with the applications.

Your komvux should have a studievägledare who will be able to help you work this kind of stuff out.

Well, it is customary to put place and date on pretty much everything you sign in Sweden. Wouldn't have thought it needs approving.

They won't have made your eyes worse, but they are the glasses equivalent of tube socks - they have not been designed for you and the lenses will most likely not be centered correctly, in front of your pupil. This can give a prism effect forcing your eyes inwards or outwards and causing various problems (I actually heard of a guy who wanted to sue Clas Ohlson because his reading glasses gave him splitting head aches).

Anyhow, evakaram, if your sight is getting worse it's probably just time to increase the power. Happens naturally with time as the lens grows and becomes more rigid.


Meseost.. you can definitely get them cheaper than that if you don't go for all the extras and the fanciest frames.
