On a Facebook page for Swedes living abroad I found the greatest inspiration to a collection of illustrations about Sweden. 198 comments (gold mine) about how we Swedes living abroad see Sweden and Swedishness. My creativity jumped up and did a high five with itself (?!) and out came 6 illustrations about my favorite observations from Sweden that I recognize and that I have been thinking to myself that maybe it is just me.. But obviously it is not just me, sooo many more also see this weird things even though we love Sweden ( for a week or two)
If you are Swede living in Sweden you can jump down to the last one because you will most probably not agree or understand the other once ( no offense) If you do read them anyways and think to yourself that I am not fair and don’t have the right picture, that is ok and also typical Swedish.
The illustrations has nicely been put together and published on a Swedish web-based magazine SMUL for parents with kids with Swedish as mother tongue living abroad
