This is a regular event hosted by the Tsukuba Information Center usually on the 4th Wednesday of the month.
Sweden is that dark and cold country up north! How can you survive there? This is what most people ask me about my home country, Sweden. Most people picture us living in total darkness in an igloo and keeping polar bears as pets. They also picture us as a peaceful and happy people.
From my point of view, some of these things are true and others are not. Swedish people are living in a country in the far north in the extreme cold and darkness in the winter, but the country becomes the brightest and the most colorful place in the summer. Sweden is a country of changes, because every season looks different, and it also looks different depending on whether you are in the south, the middle, or the northern part of the country. Therefore, it is hard to know where to go in Sweden and what the country has to offer. So let me give you some advice about what you can experience in Sweden regarding culture, cities, countryside, beaches, skiing, surviving the cold, or experiencing the archipelagoes of Stockholm. Sweden can offer you a lot and where you should go depends on what you want to do. Join me for a ”trip” to Sweden and learn what the country in the north, the country of changes has to offer you!
