What I Know About Sweden

Greetings, friends!

So I got accepted to Lund University in Sweden for January 2013! This will be my blog for all things exchange related, but it’s a bit too early for that, so I will try not to write a big long post until I actually get traveling. In the midst of securing housing, visa, preparing to fly over, etc, I thought I’d spend my first blog (pre-departure) on what I currently know about Sweden. Hopefully when I look back on this post next August, I will have learned a significant amount more than what I know today. Here goes:

Sweden:
-Population 9 million
-One of the largest countries by land size in Europe
-Beautiful people
-Brands: IKEA, Ericsson, J Lindeberg, Saab, Spotify, Volvo, H&M
