This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

An American in Sweden
« on: June 15, 2010, 12:48:26 PM »
My sister-in-law is both Swedish and pregnant.  I am very excited to tell you that baby-to-be will be baptized is Sweden.  If all goes well, I will be making my first trip to the Old World within the next year or so.

I have no doubt that the community here is either well-traveled or native to many corners of the earth.  I ask you: If one was to spend two weeks in Sweden, what would you do?  As a resident of the USA and a gamer, I crave a sense of deep history that I find lacking in my native land.  I know next to nothing of Sweden.  Also, I consider myself a "foodie," fond of tasting everything and bringing flavors back to my dinner table.

What does one see in two weeks of Sweden?  What does one eat in Sweden?

Finally, I might consider learning some of the language.  I am not strong with languages but I am proficient with Spanish in addition to my native English.  Would any member of this forum recommend a specific text or other tool to learn practical modern Swedish?
