So, it’s been a while since my family and I moved to Sweden after weeks of planning and packing. We were more worried about finding Indian spices and ingredients for our daily food than anything else.
Our first weeks in the country we were surprised by how much of history Sweden was able retain over centuries. Old, yet strong buildings, cobblestone streets and picturesque bridges made up the ‘Gamla Stan’ – the old town, connected to the the more modern areas by a well-planned transit system – buses, trams, trains, subway and ferries.
There is so much to admire about this country and its culture and I wish to dedicate a section of the blog to it.
Before I go, I have to say, one would wonder, that people who have lived here for all their lives, seeing at least 50 winters come and go, they would be used to it, but no. Nobody likes the winter and ever since I landed here, everyone said – “Winter is coming!” with all the seriousness of a Game of Thrones character.
