To be Swedish means

That you're constantly aware of any sunlight.
If there's sun, a great stress explodes within.
In this land of darkness, you must somehow seize the day.
Preferably by taking a long, long walk.
Or just bask in the sun.

Cause you really don't know when you'll see the sun again.
Sunlight is the most stressful thing for a Swede.
At least to me.


  1. I know what you mean! I felt exactly the same way when I lived in Northern England. In fact, there are lots of funny editorials on exactly this subject when "summer" starts.

  2. Har bott i Philadelphia i över fem år och det tog ett tag att släppa solstressen. Men efter ett tag inser en att här skiner solen hela vinterna plus att den värmer. Tror ni kommer trivas utmärkt när ni flyttar!


I welcome any comment, so happy to hear from you.
