Swedish things you miss in England

Recommended Posts

Oh... hehe

 

- Swedish cheese. I hate cheddar. I *censur* hate cheddar.

 

- Firs and pine trees. I ahven't seen a single fir or pine tree in almost a year. Driving me crazy.

 

- Swedish lakes! Oh, you can have a lake of your own a summer day. Just drive around a look for one. They're everywhere. There are no bloody lakes around here. And it's a million miles to the nearest coast

 

- metres, kilometres and kilograms. Why is everything in feet, miles and pounds (or even stones!). No idea what people say. Britain - go metric!

 

- Swedish housing. So much better. We have real floors (no carpets!), good insulation and tripple-glazed windows.

 

- Swedish traffic (that is you can drive for an hour without meeting a single car)

 

- the low population. This country is overcrowded. So overcrowded. Sweden only had 9 million people and a size of three times Britain. but Britain has almost 60 million people.

 

That's about it, but if I moved back to Sweden there are a couple of things I'd miss

 

Like... CUSTARD! I love custard. And tea. Good English tea. You can't get that in Sweden. There is nothing more heavenly than some good old sponge cake with custard and a nice cuppa.

 

And... the TV is better here - still bad but alot better than boring Swedish tv.

 

And... people are more friendly around here. You can talk to someone on the bus. Impossible in Sweden.

Sir vali, I agree with everything here apart from cheddar (which I quite like) and the benefits of tea and custard (which are not for me)...scary!

 

Yeah, English girls are too bitchy.

 

I had better avoid commenting on this though... laugh.gif
