Travel to Sweden in 2019

During many summers we have had the great pleasure to take care of and arrange for American relatives coming to Sweden. They wanted to walk on the soil of their ancestors and to meet with now living relatives in Sweden. We have become fully aware of the exitement they felt when they visited our well developed homeland and to be able to meet with contemporary relatives of their own age. Many of us living in beautiful and interesting environments and with the nearness to many sightseeing places well woth seeing.

You have of course to arrange for travel cost and timing for coming to and from Sweden. We hope you will message us well ahead of time. As soon as you have come we will take good care of you. We hope to be able to arrange and take care of your local travels, meals and lodgings. We expect you will be interested in walking on the roots of your ancestors. This could for instance happen in Varmland, Narke or Smaland. And to meet with contemporary relatives living in, or near the neighborhood of our capital Stockholm on the east coast or on the west coast with our second largest city of Gothenburg.

Notice that the value of the Swedish krona (SEK) is very low this year. You get much for your dollar.

American relatives coming to Sweden are often surprised by our high standard of living. And this as we have so many immigrants living here. I remember how surprised I became my self in USA when I wisited the American automotive industry during the 1980´s. And during conversations with Americans realized their limited knowledge about living cirumstances in forrein countries.

The Swedish Institute is a public agency that encourage interest and trust in Sweden around the world. They operate in the fields of culture, education, science and business and to promote development. On their website you will find lots of information. Look for "Sharing Sweden". They have a new projekt: "Stories from Sweden". They will also be published on Youtube in four parts to begin with about: integration, durability and gender equality. Later they plan to produce more videos.         

In the last chapter of my book "My sister Christina", translated into English and added to this homepage, I have added graphic information about what has happened in Sweden since Christina emigrated 1867 and the current quality of life in comparison with the situation in USA.

It has been a great pleasure for us having American relatives visiting us in Sweden during previous years. We have travelled together with them to: Stockholm, Närke and our own country house Nackehultet in Dalsland. Unfortunately no relative has so far visited their roots in the beautiful province of Småland. 

So far this year 2019 we have one family that plan to come to Sweden by Midsummer 2019. Near our cabin in Dalsland is the extremely beutiful Gota canal, one of the most beautiful canals in the world. It did celebrated its 150 years anniversary 2018. My sugestion is that you read this short story about Preserving a cultural heretige - Gota canal.
Notice that all our relatives are can stay at Nackeloftet for free all the year around. Just let us know when time will suit you.
