How to find home in Sweden?.

Sorry, this blog post is not about looking for accommodation! However, it will help you find a piece of your native home whilst in Sweden. If you live in Gothenburg and are tired of searching for a warm cooked meal, hair extensions, chocolate, or a soda unique to home. Your search has finally come to an end.

Supritha did a post on how to find a little taste of home in Stockholm which you can read here. I, on the other hand am going to focus on Gothenburg.

When packing to come to Sweden for the first time, some NFGL alumni told me not to carry too many clothes. Rather I was told to concentrate on things that I would miss from home. This is one of the best pieces of advice I have ever received. As I have often re-given it during my time in Sweden.

So here goes:
