Some initial facts on Sweden: Sweden is a small kingdom in north Europe but the king has no political power and Swedes love to exercise their democracy with more than 80% voters in the elections. Sweden is for its size and 9 million people surprisingly successful in music and the third largest music exporting country after the US and UK with groups like ABBA, Cardigans, Ace of Base, Eagle Eye Cherry, Europe, Roxet, Yngwie Malmsteen and Sahara Hotnights on the list. In international studies Sweden is often ranked as the top country in the world in life quality and environmental issues. Some examples of successful Swedish companies are Ericsson, IKEA, Electrolux, ABB, SKF, Volvo, Saab, H&M and Skype. Alas most of them are more multinational than Swedish today. So the reputation that Swedes are good at what they do is well deserved.

Swedes also love their countryside, summertime at the beach swimming or fishing or in their summer house (there are plenty of cottages to rent in Sweden and a great way of exploring the country). The access to nature is easy and Sweden has a law called “allemansrätten”, all mans rights, giving all people access to nature if they are behaving responsible and not causing any disturbance or littering, this includes privately owned forest and lands. Wintertime downhill and cross country skiing, snowboarding are popular sports.
