Rubbish, most of the worlds best sporting opportunities are in the U.K. or USA, name me all these world renowned Swedish sports stars again?

Skiing is not elite in sweden. Every town has a lit track in winter. Downhill is cheap enough for any working adult to afford and tens of thousands of families go to ?re, s?len, Idre etc every winter. Some every month. Lots of kids ski just as part of normal school gym lessons

I don't have that problem, I find people say hello outside the city, even in the suburbs.

When I moved here the biggest thing that took time to get used to was the lack of small talk but part of that was not speaking Swedish at the time and then it was cultural differences around the small talk.

When you did down into how the Swedes are it makes sense. They just don't talk to people they don't know.

The old joke in Stockholm was that if someone said hello to you they were either drunk, Finnish or both.
