Hello everyone… and here I am in Sweden for a couple of weeks. Having had my “summer hols” last winter in Oz and NZ – I thought I better have more “summer hols” in Europe. (Well if I don't get away travelling every month I get withdrawal symptoms. ) Each summer when my dear friend, Lesley, comes back from Dubai where we used to teach together we have some holiday time together… a...

Sounds like you are having a fab time, missing some great weather here though. Your house swappers are lovely, we took them out for a drive yesterday and showed them the local pubs etc then ended up at the harbour for a drink. I hope you are being good and not eating too much cake!!! See you soon Much love xx

Great to hear your still on the move!
Hi Lynne I don't know how you keep on the move as you do! It seems to me that you're really only 21 but have had a hard life! My son Danny has been saying that he would love to visit Sweden so if you hear of any potential house swaps for next summer please let me know. All the best for the rest of your travels. Susan

House swap with Sweden in 2012 anyone?
Hi Lynne, I must agree with your friend Susan... how do you manage to travel so extensively and frequently? It sounds lovely though. We're enjoying our house swap with Holland and will stay until August 13. The weather has been changeable, whereas Sweden has had super weather or so it seems. We've mainly kept to the South West coast in Holland. Couldn't help noticing that Susan Dempster's son may want to swap with Sweden? My plan for 2012 (when I'm retired) is to stay for as long as possible in the UK. Maybe try and arrange a chain of exchange partners/families like you did in Oz and Nz. Anybody interested out there?

Very Fetching Hat
Lynne - I would have thought you'd be all set after a summer downunder with the most amazing array of hats! The forest looks so inviting and the huts and houses are very cute. We've never been to Scandanavia but maybe one day we will get a swapper who wants to come here (but it would have to be in their summer!). Have a great time.
