The Local _ World travel _ Immigrating to Sweden to travel the world

Posted by: sadmerican 19.Oct.2019, 08:39 AM

I plan to move to Sweden to pursue further education and career options after leaving the U.S.
Wanting to travel the world, I would like to use Sweden as my hub/home that I can return to, rest, and build up more savings, etc. before I can take my next trip.

Thoughts, suggestions, or anything else I should consider?

This is silly. Are you high?

Why not stay in the USA, get a degree from a better university, have better and more career options, have more spending power/ ability to save, and use the US as your hub?

It would save you a lot of trouble.

I've been to Europe and I know it's where I want to be. Flying is expensive as hell. I'd rather be in closer proximity to all the places I want to go.
I already have my degree and some savings.

But also I'm just paranoid of getting shot up.

Cool story bro.

How do you plan on moving to Sweden? You should maybe think of that before thinking of traveling the world.

Y''all gotta chill. I've already made my plans and I know how it will work. I was only looking for extra insight, not bullshit deconstructive criticism.

"I know how it will work"

Really? Certainly doesn't read that way.

Are you prepared to be flight-shamed for all your jet-setting? And did you know, there is an anti-red-meat movement, arising in your favourite country?

I am guessing we will start hearing of "eco-suicides" in Meatballia, quite soon, since a high percentage of people there have been shamed just for existing (cause you know, even existing is bad for the environment, right?).

Seriously, you are not gonna save any money living in Sweden, unless you live in the middle of nowhere.

Have you seen the connections out of Arlanda, quite bad. You'll end up having to go to a proper hub just as a first leg on your "tours" (Heathrow or Helsinki, for example). And then if you live in the middle of nowhere (which, let's face it, you will need to, in order to carry out your wacky plan), you can add an extra day each way just to get to Stockholm, which is just a proxy to real gateways (Heathrow or Helsinki).

Good luck, you silly silly fool!

1. Get a job offer. or Apply to a Swedish university.
2. Explain to your eventual employer that you would need a work visa in order to work in Sweden. They most likely won't be aware of it. Complete the work visa application. It would normally take up to 2-3 months for the Swedish migration agency to issue the work visa and then you can move here and start working.

or Get admitted to a Swedish university. Apply for a student visa.

You're gonna regret it very soon though. This is not Europe, this is a xenophobic, racist shithole.

Move to Paris instead.

In my personal experience, there are more rabid, xenophobic, racist SweNazis online than you encounter in real-life in Sweden, unlike in USA or even France.

That is mainly because Swedish society as a whole and by a vast majority is quite secular, inclusive and progressive.

So, please dont listen to the naysayers, and welcome to join the many Americans happily settled in Sweden.

Posted by: champaignepapi 21.Oct.2019, 08:46 AM

@sadmerican

I forgot to say, if you have an EU passport, then you can move here right away and live on your savings until you get a job. I assume that you would move to Stockholm, but if that isn't an option, getting a job in villages like Gothenburg, Malmö, Linköping might be easier. Good luck anyway!

Really? I’ve never in my time in multiple cities in America seen so much neo nazi propaganda like I do with Nordfront in Sweden.

Islamophobic incidents are also amongst the highest in the world in Sweden. That’s not very cool nor welcoming.



Op, what would your degree be in if you were to pursue higher education here in sveriarrhea?

Posted by: Svedallas 22.Oct.2019, 08:27 PM

You do know Sweden is one of the most expensive countries in Europe right??

Doesnt sound like a very well researched plan if you ask me.

Also, you think you can just move and get a job that easily?

See the thousands of posts.

I rest my case here.

It's actually not hard at all.
Many people on this forum can't even spell properly, so using them as a reference is not legit.

What?

I got hold of some devils lettuce and thought you meant it was unwise to put people you talk to on Internet forums down as a reference on an employment application because of their lack of ability to spell or grammar. Yes, I’m using grammar as a verb.

But I like how you type. So can I put you down as a reference? Can you write me a letter of recommendation so I can get into The world famous Lund university in the big stad of Sweden?

Living in Trumpty's Ahmuricah is still far, far better than living in the über-socially-restricted Greasy Meatball.

And that ain't sayin much...

I'm just going to assume that naysayers hate their own country similar to how I hate my own.

What über-social-restrictions are affecting you, and how?

Here is a simple example...

Smiling and saying hello to strangers as you pass them on a fairly empty street would be considered odd and semi threatening.

A ship was sunk and a motley assortment of passengers arrived on the shore of a desolate and deserted island...

Years went by and eventually they were discovered and saved...

During their time on the island, it was discovered that the Englishmen created a football league, the Italians created a winery, the french opened a restaurant, the Germans formed an army and provided police protection and the Swedes???

They are still waiting to be introduced!!!

Love 'em or leave that's how it is!!!

You wanted to live among them they didn't move to you!!!

"What über-social-restrictions are affecting you, and how?"

I don't have the energy nor the slightest interest to relive these things for you.

And if you really are asking that question sincerely, I would definitely think twice about moving to Meatballia, especially for such a casual reason, since it tends to indicate to me, you've no idea what terrible mistake you will be making.

Even with Trumps Amuircuh, you will be taking 5 steps backwards moving to the Meatheads.

But you can google "Swedish opinion corridor", "Swedish consensus culture" and "Sweden + Jante's Law" for starters. None of that does the nastiness of Meatballian culture justice...it's far worse in reality, than it stands as written on paper.

Conform or be cast out, is basically the theme of the Meatheads.

So just like you meatheads blame Sweden for the choices of the norwegian nobel peace prize committee, you now try to apply a concept coined by a dane, writing in norwegian, describing a society in western Denmark to Sweden. What's next? Trying to pin icelandic internal politics on Sweden?

What are you smoking? Not weed cuz you Swedes are too stupid to wrap your heads around that one.

Must be meth... you are oblivious and lash out randomly.

Face it, your society fuggin suuuuucccckkksss. The Norwegians and Danes as well. They all scared lil biotches

Yes, I too thought it odd that you Meatballs couldn't even come up with your own brand of social restriction, and had to copy it from the novel you so described.

Even North Korea could forge its own way.

But hey, I'm impressed you'd your head extracted for long enough to connect those dots!

Kudos to you!

Do I? Having trouble with "you'd your", are we?

Can you guess what it means?

If you guess what it means, and you get it correct, I will call your mommy, and ask her to make your favourite sandwich!

And I will also push for her to give you a gold star on the calendar!

The only contractions he is aware of are what he sees when looking out of mommy’s womb.
