I am an American living in Sweden.  These are my observations, experiences and humiliations in the city of Stockholm.

I also write books about some of the strange and funny things that happen to a Texan living in Europe.

And I host my own podcast where I chat with other expats living in Sweden. It’s also called Life in the Land of the Ice and Snow and can be found on Spotify, iTunes and anywhere you get your podcasts by just typing in “Life in the Land of the Ice and Snow.”

  1. Great Blog! I am an American living in Sweden too! Your experiences resonate with me. I look forward to your posts!


    1. Ah! We are all over the place! So glad you like the blog. There are so many odd differences to comment on. Some fun, some very very strange (why do they like to hop around like frogs?). I’m checking out your blog too! You have some great stuff on there. I’ll pass it along to my friends!


  2. I am so glad I have found your blog. I am American, but have some Swedish in my blood. Can’t wait to follow your adventures. 🙂


  3. Thanks for the like on my Random Thoughts post!

    Great blog. As someone who is also living far away from home, I can relate to a lot of your writing. You have a new fan.


    1. Thank you! I enjoyed your bucket list but it makes me feel bad since today I can’t even manage to change out of pajamas. 🙂

        I am envious of that. I’m stuck at work, and when I get home from work I’ll be on the computer doing a writing test for a prospective job in France.
        Cause I look pretty darn good in pajamas! lol.


  6. Pleased to have happened on your blog. I’ll explore further. Regards from Thom at the immortal jukebox (drop a nickel).


  7. I did enjoy these short and succinct observations, thank you!


  8. Have enjoyed reading a few pages of your blog, good work!

    I’ve just moved to Sweden from the UK in the last few months, and have found things pretty hard going so far – I enjoyed the light approach in your mini-blogs.

    Keep it up, you have a new follower!


    1. Thank you so much! Oh, this is the worst time of year to move here. I promise the summers are great! It’s all ice cream and sunbathing. No one really works. 🙂
      I find you have to have a sense of humor to get through moving to another country. Now when I get something wrong or embarass myself, I say, “well at least I have a new post for my blog.”
      Good luck here!


  9. Sweden’s a fabulously weird place. It sure gets under the skin, though. After many years living in Vaster Norrland, we’re now in France but hanker after the damn place. Maybe another move North is required. Best and good luck with the blog, of course. I used to run one, mostly while in Sverige (http://swedishbullshit.blogspot.fr/) haven’t bothered for over a year, France seems such an ordinary sort of place, I guess, in comparison. Maybe have to resume……


    1. Maybe a summer place in Sweden then? 🙂 Enjoy France! And I’m sure you can find enough weird stuff if you really look. Just find some public transportation somewhere. haha! But from your blog, it looks lovely with a house in the country. Believe me, you are not missing slipping on ice.


  10. Hi there!
    I’ve nominated your blog for The Liebster Award!
    I hope you will accept. 🙂 Have fun and happy blogging!


  11. An easy going blog, I loved it!
