The midnight sun, the snowbound winters, meatballs, herring, Vikings and Volvos, ABBA and the Hives - whatever your pre-existing notions about Sweden may be, a visit to this multifaceted country is bound to both confirm and confound them. Though you’re unlikely to be greeted at the shore by throngs of mead-swilling berserkers in longships, evidence of the Vikings and their pillaging days is easy to find.
Going on Student exchange has introduced me to people from all over the world. In the five months I have been here I have made some good friends whom I feel I will remain in-contact with long after my exchange program finishes. It has also opened my eyes to the possibilities of different career paths and occupations overseas rather than what is just offered in my own country.
