Hi brooklynmom and RMZ

There are a few of us english speaking (expats)living in or around Växjö. You'll find our group on Facebook and we try to meet up for a fika/lunch ... or drinks.

Hope this helps!

It's me, same as "brooklynmom" but i had to re-register because for some reason I was not allowed to post again. Technical problem that the local doesn't seem to be able to solve. After weeks of this I gave up. So here I am as Brooklynmom2.

Just a quick update - we signed a contract on our sweet old house (built in 1927) in Vaxjo last week. We are getting the keys August 1st. So Sweden here we come...

Just realized last night that I'm going to have to learn how to behave in Sweden. A Chinese woman via New York is bound to experience some cultural faux pas in Sweden. For one thing, we aren't accustomed to following most rules, which we generally view as something there to be broken. Not in Sweden of course.

Mark Base i see that you found me smile.gif

PS, RMZ, whomever you are. I'm not allowed to send a message to you (what's up with all the restrictions on this site!), and I'd love to connect with you. Please email me at We are moving to Vaxjo end of July from NYC. How about you? Where are you moving from and when?

Växjö is nice and greencity and I am sure you would love living there smile.gif

But compared to newyork it would be boring hehe because In växjö after 6pm everything would be closed so it is boring I love a city when i go out at 3am i should see many ppl

so Växjö is relaxing and sleep place smile.gif but I m sure you would have good time during summer smile.gif especially going to Evedal to get some sun lol we are dying for sun:P
