Surprising things about Sweden I have spotted so far
1 I thought they would be hot on recycling but other than glass there doesn’t seem to be much effort where we have stayed
2 There is an incredible amount of bird life. Even in the city there is lots of birdsong. Walking Jeffery a short walk today there were over 30 bird nesting boxes out. Several of them were occupied. In another place there were owl boxes mounted on electricity pylons.
3 Sweden seems to have lots of low level graffiti on the lines of “Sven was here”
4 Stockholm as a city is so full of water and boats. There are marinas everywhere and lots of the boats are stunningly beautiful wooden craft maintained to high spec.
5 They do good beaches. Little beaches they create on lakes or rivers.
6 The most likely cause of injury is cyclists not cars. They are everywhere and cycle lines weave in and out of pavements. One has to have one’s wits about you.
7 Their English is superb. We have not encountered anyone young or old who cannot manage a conversation. They put us to shame who can say” Hello”and “ Thank you”.
8. Many more men looking after children in the day time as seen in various parks.
