Farewell for now, good luck, but as the saying goes a change is as good as a rest. It freshens things up.

Good luck, but why would A Dutchman be against cutting down the trees?
How else are you going to make all those clogs and windmills?

Tot ziens en veel geluk. I really hope that you find what you need back in NL.

I really understand being away from an aging mum - mine lives on and island off the UK where if you are not taxed or born there you can not go currently (I am neither). However I hated living on that island as a young adult so would not ever consider going back.

I loved living in NL and if I decided to ever leave Sweden I would want to go back there smile.gif it was the first place I ever really considered home.

After 8 years in Sweden it is time to say goodbye and move back home.


Unlike the majority of posts on this forum, this was a fascinating insight into your perception of Sweden during the last 8 years. Thanks for taking the time to write it.

Mine are a more realistic portrayal of life in Sweden

I'm a little sad my country's not going to welcome a nice person like you wink.gif , but I'm happy you're jumping into a new adventure - even on well known, old ground.
It was always a pleasure reading you, Cootje!
Wish you all the best. biggrin.gif

Hello Rita,

Even though we are not moving to Italy, we decided to use the profit from the sale of our properties here to look for a holiday home in Umbria, since it is such a lovely area, and when I showed the wife the YouTube clip you send, she was sold. So you might see a Dutchie coming by there ocacionally!

How is Sweden racist? I am honestly asking you this. You can say they discriminate against foreigners but that isn't the same as racism. As a nation they are not racist in the way Italians are, for example.

Very nicely written @cootje! Adios and good luck back home!

I am going on my 6th year here in Sweden over two periods, and still loving it smile.gif lets see how long this stint lasts.

I am in love with travel, nature & wildlife/birding - so far the work-life balance that Sweden offers me helps me indulge myself quite well.

Try being a black man driving a car in the USA, they'll just stop you and shoot you for the heck of it.
