I'm 22 year old girl from Poland living in Umeå. I'd like to meet some people who I can speak english or polish with since my swedish isn't so good, just for a "fika" in some cafe or walk in town or something. I'm free most of the time.

The cold doesn't really matter too much when your sat at "båten" having a nice warm cup of coffee and looking out over the frozen river. Best café in town, or it used to be at least.

Can't sit in the cafe´all night, one has to go home to that nice snug warm bed...that's when the brass monkey takes hold. :wink:

I have July 2000, for a week en-route. Between 11/18C, and around a foot of rain, that's Summer time.
Winter, make that 10,000km South. :wink:

OK I'll give you that one, The summer of 2000 was the worst in Swedish history, I was there for 5 months, it pissed down almost the whole time, I thought I was in Scotland. I remember watching the news and there was a house floating down the river, mental!

Ah, I remember that one. Saw someone with a house by a river near Sundsvall canoeing around their garden. Looked a bit odd.

My granddad reckons the summer of 2004 is the worst one he's seen in his 80-odd year long life though.

OK, now I understand. I'm not surprised you miss Umeå, I love the place. I'll be about 2Mil from Ume.
