Hale from Småland.. little south of Jönköping...great place,no traffic lights even. 8)


Lovely place to pass a driving test then smile.gif

I went to Jönköping last spring and it took aaages to get there. Småland's too big for it's own good.. I think.

Isn't Småland where the film "Mitt Liv Som Hund" is based or at least filmed, looks nice on my dvd!

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.


Don't believe we are much of a help to poor "Bluey".

Thinks she's done a runner anyhow. :shock:

I love that film!! In fact, last year I bought Expressen for the first time in my life only because they gave away the dvd for free. It was just as fantastic as I remembered it, if not more. Don't think I ever got around to reading the paper.


I believe most of it was filmed in the "glasriket" area of Småland. Haven't really explored the area myself but it looks nice on my dvd too smile.gif

Just about the opposite direction to where I'm from then (Holmsund).


Edited due to overusage of the word "cool". Not quite sure what happened there.

At least we're keeping the thread alive until someone who is actually in Umeå comes along.

It's been dark in Umeå for around 7hrs.
Don't believe there's that much night activity on a Monday...all in bed.
We are in for an extended wait. :wink:

Aah, the old watch tower at Omberget. I dragged my sambo up there once in the middle of winter but he didn't like it much as the stairs were quite steep and the tower was creaking a lot. When I lived there my friend and I used to climb up there all the time to have a cigarette away from our parents. Those were the days..

EMS - Båten's ok, but Schmäck is far and away the best fika in town.

Do I win a prize for being an Umebo?

Yes, you win a date with Blue!


Not familiar with Schmäck, whereabouts is it?
