@randal_htx it’s been raised quite a lot here too. 200 (20€) for 4-10 rides depending on length/zones. A monthly pass is 790.
@the_steve_meme ja, dom tar över himlen finna kvällar på
@Jumi_Ferreira awesome. Great spring weather. Making chocolate sauce. Holiday tomorrow and Tuesday.
I’ve tried to answer all your questions. But maybe I missed one or two. Send it again. I’m here for 35 more minutes.
Chocolate sauce. Again. http://t.co/ptmLHKLp
@KingTutsWWH I’ll try to make my self clear regardless of language then. I speak Swedish English and German
@Twiger love the ladies!
@Jumi_Ferreira are you enjoying your evening?
@kasaharamay we love esparagus
@sbartelt nope not in Stockholm. Have to go further north.
Hot air balloon over Stockholm. http://t.co/3ym7qHv1
Our dinner table. Sea breem, esparagus, almond potatoes. http://t.co/5NyPYaFj
@Marionstockholm thank you so much!
Some veggies as well! http://t.co/fHVBNTqW
@Wly home made chili? Had that last week at a party. So good!
@cutiebee2 no it isn’t. You should be asleep by then! Sleep tight.
@jodyquine thanks! I will tell you and the other followers at 9 pm (2 hrs)
@jarek_pawel in Sweden you are allowed to pass through someone’s forrest or field. Even set up camp 1 night. But not in someone’s garden.
@Mikaels91 gin & tonic
@jmcouceiro I just experienced the same on my iPad. Like reading Braille.
@cutiebee2 var så god!
@Wly you bet!
@cutiebee2 I don’t know about Denmark.
@popkewitz thank you so much!
@Twiger not sure… We both have missing pieces some time…
Me and my GT on our patio. Waiting for the BBQ to heat up. http://t.co/ooWC3Xxp
Above us only sky! http://t.co/1EYdXKgL
Wonder if tweet about “free passage” over private property will lead to misunderstandings. Always good to ask owner before setting camp!
@stefaniefleur weekend is the best end!
What have you learned about Sweden this week? What would you like to know?
This has been such a wonderful week. All questions & feedback from so many followers. I’ve really enjoyed being Mr Sweden. Universe next!
@Macotor it’s 6.30 pm here, so yeah dinner time!
Waiting for the BBQ. Having a gin and tonic in the evening sun.
@moasandh that is true. Every system has loop holes. And the higher purpose is to have a well educated working force.
@eleni_sson premiär på ny grill. Vi åt sea breem och sea bass förra året. Minns bara inte vilken som var godast…
@chrismada9 today in Stockholm is great. 15•C and sunny with some clouds. BBQ tonight!
@LowGmaN yeah, there are books. Also we learn from parents and in school.
.@katepopay @peopleofuk wondering who will be mr/ms universe though!
@astonadam nice to hear!
Education isn’t “free”. It’s financed through taxes.
@anneliepop I wish you a pleasant flight and a nice stay!
@MaithaQayed thank you!
@LindaMachado thank you!
Just realized: come tomorrow I’ll be able to call myself “former Mr Sweden”
@FizaIsa luckily it’s only once a week. And this much only once a month.
I’ll keep tweeting from this account until 9 pm (it’s 3.30 pm here now). My last tweet will introduce next week’s curator.
I have really enjoyed this week. If you wanna stay in touch with me I’m @PeterSvenonius as usual tomorrow.
Ahh, the excitement of shopping http://t.co/KRNeGdi9
The most popular place among families on a Saturday http://t.co/wVRnK1bg
@khaverluk22 stay out of their garden etc. and if unsure ask owners.
@randal_htx nope. Out of sight, ie in a Forrest or field
Our garden right now. http://t.co/Zch72JE5
With #allemansrätten comes great responsibility. To paraphrase a certain super hero.
@smamat no, I went with my family on a friend’s sail boat. I think the barge with your own cabin and meals is rather expensive.
@JohanKaluza actually I think it’s hazel nuts that are not included, deemed to valuable way back. Other nuts are ok
@MWhalan they property owners shouldn’t feel bothered. Always best is to ask permission anyway.
The purpose of free passage & freedom to pick & eat berries & mushrooms on someone else’s property is for hikers way back. #allemansrätten
@JohanKaluza I think specific hazel nuts are not included, deemed so valuable way back. Other nuts ok like berries and fruit.
You are not allowed to break branches of trees, or make a fire without control or on an open rock. #allemansrätten
While enjoying the freedom within #allemansrätten it’s important to remember to show respect to others and property owners.
I traveled Goeta Kanal when I was ~10. Awesome experience with the locks, lakes and scenery along the way.
Hazelnuts not ok. Other nuts ok. #allemansrätten
I’m brushing up on Swedish deep lakes. Hornavan is the deepest. Vättern 6th or 7th.
The berries make it possible for someone to organize berry picking and sell for profit. Not the usual intent of #allemansrätten
And nuts are not included in #allemansrätten
Set up camp: not in someone’s garden or plain sight. But in their Forrest or field. #allemansrätten
@PeteHullah no. And not in someone’s garden or plain sight. But in their Forrest or field.
In Sweden we’re allowed to walk over & set up camp (1 night) on private property, pick & eat berries & nuts in the forrest. #allemansrätten
Lake Vättern has its own archipelago. @LassieLowrider can tell you more.
Lake Vättern is the deepest and second largest in Sweden. It connects with Trollhättan (West) and Berg (East) coast through Göta Kanal.
@Ingyplingy yeah, did that earlier this week, first when it trended in Sweden, and then when it went global. hilarious.
@Judes_photo thanks. Cherry blossoms are the best.
@Annemcx tack sjaelv!
@missalways thank you so much!
Ok Swedish followers: what is your favorite fact or sight that you would like to tell the world about?
@AjSheterline thanks a lot!
Good morning world. Well at least it’s morning here. My last day as curator. Mixed feelings about returning to @PeterSvenonius tomorrow.
@erikssonvagen you are not alone. My father for instance doesn’t like salty licorice either.
@slidingintoold that sounds like great fun. Watching or driving?
@valeskocracy I’ll check it out!
@impeus what’s in a Yorkshire mixture?
Funny things happen when previous weeks’ curators get retweeted… http://t.co/nkb9lfVi
@armstrong_RN sounds tough. Sending some digital caffeine for you.
@juliamargareta I like those too! Turkisk peppar is now available in three varieties, one with soft chewy licorice in various shapes. Great!
@mandalaya Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday = 4.
Any bets that my wife DIDN’T fall asleep while putting the kids to sleep? #lonely
@appleforbrain they are very popular. Only car we still produce in Sweden.
Realizing that not everyone gets to relax on Saturday evening. Big up to all of you who are working tonight.
@BrianR0bson I like Wallander too!
@sarahemily_11 a group of us spent a lovely afternoon relaxing in the Olympic park.
Watching “Murder in paradise” (British series). Later we’ll watch Suits (US series). What are you watching?
@tracycat better luck next week!
@sarahemily_11 lovely! I’ve been to Munich, last year of high school. My sister lives outside cologne with her family.
@LillemorSR det kan den gott göra!
@v4sch did you see their April fools day ad this year?
@HWvTilburg we have a wide assortment, if the kids haven’t eaten it all. I’m still full from dinner. Waiting a while.
@BrianR0bson do you like the bridge? It didn’t cling to me. Best show this year is Sherlock. Can’t wait for next season.
@JerseyTjej what’s your favorite sort?
@khaverluk22 me too!
@tracycat sorry don’t understand
We are fortunate to be able to take one day of vacation Monday to get a four day weekend.
Tuesday, May 1, is a national holiday. On the day before, Apr 30, we celebrate that spring is here, “Valborg”, lighting bon fires & singing.
@LillemorSR vi har inte plats för fler träd på vår tomt. Hade gärna haft äpple och körsbär. Har plommon och vinbär. Rönnbär räknar jag inte!
My favorite candy is very Swedish: a bag of mixed pieces. Called “smågodis”
Famous Swedish candy includes: Swedish fish, salty licorice. The most liked on Facebook is “raspberry licorice skulls” http://t.co/hV97m6VO
Saturday evening spent at home. Food, wine, candles and maybe some Swedish candy.
@Livsnaturist Uppsala does it best. We normally celebrate outs Uppsala w friends who live there. Not this year though. Other plans at home.
@LillemorSR glöm inte granatäpple och kaktus!
@metaphysikhall I would volunteer to stay on then!
@ddimitriadis so your kids eat candy everyday or never? Ours would love everyday.
@LaurelHounslow I have been tweeting mostly in Swedish. But now I think I will continue in English. And use Swedish when swedes @ me.
@popkewitz sounds nice!
@popkewitz so not like here. Where it is dark, cold and snowy in the winter.
@chrismada9 thanks Chris for the compliment.
@TonyEmmerson I have honestly never tried them. My five year old prefers “Mamma Scan” the rest of us prefer home made meatballs.
@popkewitz what’s it like in the winter?
@brickstarter I expect a feeling of uselessness come Monday. What should I do with my life etc.
@popkewitz anything blossoming. Or is it fall there now?
@tdh don’t think it will be enough. The pr work behind this account is like any other celebrity account. Good tweets aren’t enough.
@tdh yes. But I could adjust that. For instance tweet in english all the time. Wondering I that alone will multiply my following count.
@nselby at the moment 1/40. But I’ll try to bring some with me. Gained 10 followers last 10 minutes alone.
@Hamada_san1 most subtle, right ;)
@smuttysteff hi steffanie! Thanks for joining.
@chrismada9 everyone should just follow everyone!
@brickstarter all tweeted out?
@tdh I’ll still be me and with so many followers being in Sweden I think main difference will be quantity. 40x my ordinary follower count.
I love having 28 000 followers. Wondering what it will be like Monday when I return to being @PeterSvenonius
Love seeing all the cherry blossoms from all over the world. thinking about driving in to Stockholm for a live view before it’s too late.
@AndersFinn tried that. Didn’t like the UI. And for this account I’m not allowed to add apps. Don’t have master password.
@LaurelHounslow there is a saying here “paltkoma” as in “coma after eating to sturdy food”.
@idealabdigital nice. But what I really need is a developer to join our team during 24hbc
@deirdrebeth added! Thanks.
@liesbethbos it can be reall cold in the mornings, almost freezing, and then heat up at noon. Impossible to dress basically.
@tommlie back then the Swedish tourist board had a different strategy…
Waiting for my business partner. Time for business development. On a Saturday when the sun is shining. That’s either commitment or foolish.
More than 3 hours of stand up comedy clips now. Keep em coming for the curated YouTube list! http://t.co/VM4q8OPc
“@Annemcx: @sweden thought you said, ‘the computer doesn’t show all emotions’. which is also true.” True too.
@ohhsotweet added. keep em coming!
Lucky I have the Twitter App both on my iPhone and on my Mac. The computer doesn’t show all mentions.
@Hau_nS_E you think? On the other hand when it rains here, it pours…
@liesbethbos pack a rain coat and sweater. Think layers.
@tommlie looks really nice. What are your plans for this Saturday?
Awesome spring weather in Stockholm today. Blue sky and 14•C. http://t.co/F8GO8DpR
@robsearch you don’t find time. You take time. :)
@lyreskog hur firar du?
@Macotor I think humor is very important in life. If u want to see funny swedes, check stand up clubs in Stockholm. Eg Big Ben @ Folkungag.
I plan to participate in #24hbc June 10-12 Sthlm. Create & launch a web service/online business in 24 hrs. Have you done something similar?
@SebLindstrom fine thanks. Playing with my iPad. Unfortunately no skiing this season. Had knee surgery a year ago. Still not 100%. How r u?
Been watching all the standup comedy clips you sent yesterday. In total +2hrs of fun. Keep em coming!
@deirdrebeth I can’t get the clip playing on my iPhone. :( Flash?
@oldschooldsl what is xenforo?
@erinvk pikelets or fritters or Swedish pancakes (smaller) have been common suggestions by other followers. Thanks for your input!
@LaurelHounslow thanks. Long since I had blood pancakes (“blodpalt” in Swedish). Hard to find blood at the super market.
May I ask a favor: it’s my friend @lyreskog ‘s birthday today. Send him some love! Thanks.
@Marionstockholm vi hade “utan dina andetag” under vår vigsel för snart tre år sedan. Finaste Kent.
@Idpadida I have worked with great translators. Unfortunately no budget for that this week. Just me and the algorithms.
@Marionstockholm bara en gång. Inte ordentligt. Kändes bra.
@penguin_charl gymnasium. 18 years old.
Five year old has crashed in front of the tv. Me and eight year old are still watching. Wife out to dinner. http://t.co/qORtqCay
@designify taco Friday is really popular. But we’re trying some new recipes this week.
@designify yes. Pea soup and pancakes on Thursday. Chicken on Friday according to a tv ad. But more common tacos. Saturday is fiesta.
@Swedcitywoman small pancakes or fritters or…
@penguin_charl feels like a lovely evening!
@penguin_charl I’ve seen pics on Instagram. Must. Go. There. In. Person.
@twheatcroft added to the list. Will watch later.
The corn and bean things are different from ordinary pancakes (just egg, flour, milk, salt).
@L_Kettlewell it is Taco night. The police are coming…
Swedish pancakes, crumplets, pikelets, patties, silver dollar pancakes, crêpes, fritelle, flapjacks, fritters, cakes. You guys are fabulous!
The “things” were made of corn, onion, garlic, eggs, flour, beans, salt and pepper. Fried in some oil. About 0.5
Cm / 1/5″ thick.
@A_Silvers ah, of course! :)
I’ve really tried to use correct English this week. And then having that all blown away by stupid platelets.
@A_Silvers fritters because they are fried in oil? I didn’t bake them in the oven.
Ok. We didn’t have platelets for dinner. Stupid google translate. Anyone know what the accurate English word for small pancakes is?
@texastoasther small pancakes. In Sweden we call them plättar. Stupid google translate.
@A_Silvers I wasn’t sure either. Hence the (?). Stupid google translate. What are they called?
Thing I haven’t done this week: seen the cherry trees blossoming in Stockholm. Hope they are still there on Wednesday.
Tonight’s dinner: corn and black bean platelets (?) with tomato sauce, cous cous and red pepper. http://t.co/ESNxeok7
@Marionstockholm den tror jag blir årets låt.
@Shield God natt! Sov gott!
@The_Step_Beyond I like my ordinary job though. Just wish I could get this much attention. :)
@Shield Thanks, I’ll check it out! Now: Dinner time here in Sweden.
@The_Step_Beyond Great experience. Full time job. Scary. Exciting. I guess I’m gonna experience a great hangover on Monday at 700 followers…
@ribblefizz added this one to!
@Shield thanks, I’ll check it out!
@The_Step_Beyond we have a long weekend as well. Tuesday is a national holiday, and I took Monday off! Enjoy your weekend!
What do you think will be the song of summer 2012? Here is a Spotify playlist of 1999-2011 http://t.co/KL6BGiib
North/South America just woken up: What’s your favorite standup comedy clip? Curating a YouTube list. Send URL!
@MahbubS that’s the best, when you can’t stop laughing at work. awkward glances is the best.
@MahbubS next week I’ll be influencial about pumpkins…
@Shield One question: Looking with online panels to make a survey. Any tips?
@steeljaw watching it right now, laughing!
@Shield I have only worked in Sweden and rest of Scandinavia/Finland. We are creative and use new media for best ROI.
@AndyCSP I can only imagine, my three performances were such a high! Any clips from your performances? Curating a YouTube-list!
@rejohansson ha ha, watching it right now
@RebelRevell sounds like an essay with great fun in it!
@LowGmaN I will check out Wayne Brady. Ricky is hilarious.
Keep sending those great stand up comedy clips! I made a YouTube playlist, already 60+ minutes! http://t.co/VM4q8OPc
@LowGmaN Any favorite clips with them on YouTube? Trying to put together a curated list…
@The_Step_Beyond the tweet got stuck in draft. good day! it’s 2 pm here in Sweden now.
What’s your favorite stand up comedy routine? Send link to video on YouTube or similar.
@Britt_W ha ha. Kul!
@LowGmaN not by me. Yet. Do you have a favorite comedian or act? Please send link!
@The_Step_Beyond good morning!
@HollyInAlbury hi. I have no experience on the Swedish sex worker industry. Sorry.
Link to my standup routine in the BungyComedy Final (Swe). I didn’t win, but it was really fun and a great experience. http://t.co/r6PCDNB3
In my standup routine I played on my resemblance to Swedish PM Fredrik Reinfeldt. Maybe I can get an official gig if he is double booked.
If I didn’t have my day job I would definitely persue a standup comedy career.
art year I tried standup comedy through “BungyComedy”. It was a great experience and one of my biggest adrenalin rushes ever.
Yesterday the minister dinner mixup went global. I have been told I look like Swedish PM Fredrik Reinfeldt. Maybe I can get a dinner invite?
@Shield Bra för dig. har du varit i Sverige?
@Shield Today we discussed marketing managers roll in the organization, mixing long term and short term. ROI and creative.
@CcAaTtTtIiSs 3 ways to deal with that IMHO: Mute, Unfollow, or Follow other active accounts. :-)
@tinefuchs That’s a really good question! I’ll try to persuade people to vary. Any inspiration?
@randal_htx jag tror the pirate bay är stora här med, men jag vet inte.
Panel includes Lowe, Gothia, SEB and AMF. http://t.co/UFqMZ3Xz
My day didn’t start the way I had planned. It’s been a real energy drain. I’m gonna try and shake it off with some sleep now.
@55words some 12 years ago. Best skiing ever. And I have skied a lot in Sweden and Austrian alps.
@Marionstockholm enjoy your evening!
@popkewitz meine Scwester wohnt in Deutschland seit zehn Jahren.
@ohhsotweet well ok then!
@tommlie of course!
@Blahuset you mean like sci fi? Not sure but have RT.
Or Canada or south America of course. The link in precious tweet about minister mixup was from a us site.
@ohhsotweet by three you don’t care about the cooking…
@tommlie sounds really hard! :)
@popkewitz das macht spaß hoffe ich!
@Phylissisme we (or my wife) did a 1000 piece last week. They are really good, wooden puzzles. Inherited from my grand mother.
If anyone in the US missed this. Yesterdays story of the day in Sweden is now global… http://t.co/JzBasr4f
@Phylissisme 500. So rather easy.
Puzzling. What are you up to? http://t.co/v0wCa27g
@chinkeathong I’ll try to make a visit soon.
@sophieliddy g’day mates!
@indigocat oh that, now I know which one you mean. I haven’t tried it though.
@Swedcitywoman I think it was in Yosemite
@retsiv I would really like to go. Right now we are focused on other things with family, house & work. My god parents say it’s wonderful.
@EvaLisaS Det finns en sida för Rotation Curation redan, borde alltså länka därifrån för att skapa sidan Curators of Sweden?
@glitterfittorna I guess if you asked for a visit today you would get hand cuffed to your seat…
@slipperyseal my mom sat with the pilots one entire flight. they didn’t speak swedish and asked here to talk to the Swedish passengers.
@indigocat What is Harakiri Korv?
@EMCP_ I think we went to Yosemite National Park.
@slipperyseal I never got to sit in the cockpit during take off or landing, just in flight. That must have been so cool!
.@EMCP_ I also remember the national park we visited when traveling HW1. You could drive through a giant tree. And great water falls. Name?
@indigocat Sweden offers many different sights and experiences. Lappland is very big and famous for midnight sun for instance.
My cousin is traveling in Australia and New Zealand at the moment. Seems to have the time of his life, based on the FB pictures.
@OneandonlyHelen I was in Edinburgh, where there is a castle that inspired JK Rowlings when writing Harry Potter.
@EMCP_ I was the coolest kid on my block when I got home with boards, wheels, trucks, stickers, tshirts etc directly from the factory!
@EMCP_ Another friend of my parents lived there and they managed to get us a special tour of the skate board factory. Bought so much!
When I grew up it was really easy to gain access to visit pilots in the cockpit, that has changed after 9/11.
@FizaIsa Yes! Make sure you say hi if you see them… ;)
@chef_andreas don’t remember the names of specific slopes. just that it was the best skiing ever for me. Double Diamond FTW!
Where would you like to travel next? Besides Sweden, of course ;)
.@EMCP_ We drove HW1 from LA to SF, making stops along the way including the skate board factory in Santa Cruz.
I have visited my god parents in 5 cities in 4 different countries – one being Greenland. But not Singapore yet.
My god parents live in Singapore now, but have moved all over the world (he works in the airline industry).
Beijing was really impressive, a mix of ancient culture and the booming development.Would love to go back.
I have been to Beijing in Chiina. For 56 hours. It was when my mother left the airline industry and we did many short trips.
I’ve been to USA: New York, Florida (multiple), Boston, Atlanta and California (Drove HW1). Canada: Vancouver en route to Whistler skiing.
I love to travel, really spoiled as a kid, since my mother worked at Austrian airlines and we got to fly virtually free on stand by tickets.
One of the great things with being the curator is that you guys are following from so many different countries and cities.
@NotTheCar Rain on midsummer is sort of a given. Guess it has to do with that it’s the start of summer, and we like to eat outside.
@WeAreUkraine some April’s are warm, other cold. I haven’t noticed a trend.
@frasermorrison3 that’s today! Not even sure if I have the right channel in my tv subscription. Thanks for the input!
@laughing_lisa I work as a consultant, helping clients, mostly B2B companies, develop their sales and marketing. So, I sell myself :)
@laughing_lisa hi Lisa. I have been to Atlanta once. On my way to Florida.
@iciousicious I can see that! If course we have warm jackets etc. but come April and one tends to forget looking at the temperature.
@kabbes yes. So common that it’s used ironic.
@maycontf health system has developed over last decades, eg private operators and rationalized. I think we hire at least some foreign md’s.
@cmon_now I don’t think that they are very common. Don’t think I know of such official zones. More someone living really secluded if needed.
@cmon_now That sounds strange! I’ve been to California twice, and it was really warm and sunny every day. Really liked it there. Drove hw1.
@frasermorrison3 no. Is it played this week? I’m not that into watching sports. Although I will watch Sweden in the semi/final of any sport.
We talk a lot about the weather here in Sweden. It varies a lot during a year and especially this period. winter 1 day, summer warmth next.
Good morning (or good evening/day/night depending on where you are). It’s 7 am here. Cloudy 6C and some light rain. Typical “April weather”.
@EvaLisaS now we’re talking! Tack!
@skemmo hi Steve and thanks a lot. It’s great fun doing this. Cheers. /Peter
@vickylicious21 no. There are other laws preventing that. Of course discrimination exist though.
This got me thinking. Read. Think. Act. http://t.co/yCMbShdQ
Now I’m gonna sign off and get some sleep. But all you that are awake can keep tweeting me. My phone is on mute!
Earlier today I tweeted about our paid family leave in Sweden. Send any remaining questions you might have, and I’ll answer when I’m awake.
@Britt_W The same URL twice? Read it. Great post!
@Britt_W I like to think it helped. But still it is a long way to go till 50/50 split between parents. 2035 is the current prediction.
More curator projects from various countries and cities can be found on http://t.co/UjJwSIud
@55words I think Margareta enjoyed dinner, and the attention afterwards!
@asaminoz Got it.
> Of course she was allowed in. Since she has been interviewed by lots of media and is of course present on the official dinner photo.>
> However the invitation was sent to one of the other Margareta Winberg, a 67 year old retired work therapist, who showed up for the dinner>
> One was former Swedish minister for agriculture Margareta Winberg, a name she shares with only some 20 other Swedes. >
Funny thing in Swedish politics this week Lena Ek minister for the environment invited 11 prominent people to a dinner to honor their work.>
@najza They were awesome! Trying some new recipes this week. So far 2 out of 2 have been excellent.
@kiabroome hej Kia!
“@richardksmith: I’ll start in England & prob come into Sweden via lund area. Prob 2 weeks” What should he see? Where should he go? #Malmoe
@iam_pakistan I can only imagine. Hopefully your account can spread the word and bring necessary help and change.
@iam_pakistan cool. How is life in Pakistan?
@Ellieott_ aha, tack, då vet jag. Tvungen att förenkla lite.
@cynicaloracle nope we are not related. He is a famous Swedish heavy weight lifter. Lennart “Hoa Hoa” Dahlgren.
@Paulrobby I’m the bald kid in the picture. And Hoa Hoa is also almost bald/shaved today.
@Ikoof never heard before. Will try to find on Spotify.
@Passport2fun lots of space. Although Stockholm is about two million people today so it gets crowded.
@AmbroosV yes. We met about ten years ago at a national library exhibit, where our poster was one on display.
@najza thanks for replying. I’m about to make Danish Krebinetter for the first time in my life. Any pointers?
@Ikoof yearly tax declaration
Another photo from the same campaign with me and Hoa Hoa. http://t.co/ee9fv4o3
Ok guys, I’m gonna leave to pick up our youngest now. And then cook the Danish specialty “Krebinettes” for dinner. Talk to you later.
@jmcouceiro Yeah, I realize that these thoughts are very much based on ones situation right then and there.
@Lutz_ek She lives outside Cologne. But she is not on Twitter.
@ben_turner I think that is very individual. And it’s not like the kids staying with their parents for 18 mnths doesn’t meet anyone else! :)
My sister lives in Germany, they have a really hard time finding day care before the child is 3 years old.
Baking with sourdough is still very popular. In general there is a lot of talk about eating healthy, organic and from local producers.
Today we get our bread from local baker Atilla and Solveig, who bakes fresh bread for their neighbors every Saturday.
The sour doughs have died a long time ago.
When I was on paternity leave during fall of 2005, I baked a lot of bread using sourdough from wheat and rye. Soothing, tasty, and cheap!
@lucho870601 I can’t answer that, sorry.
I would have gotten paid family leave, but couldnt risk losing clients by being “gone” for six months. Sad. But true.
Our youngest daughter was born in March 2007. At the same time I quit my job as a marketing manager and started working as a consultant.
I missed out on that with our youngest, which I can regret sometimes when she still, at age 5, prefers to cling on her mother.
I was at home five months with our eldest daughter (now 7). Before she started day care at 18 months.
@lucho870601 the whole tax system is to complicated for me. I’m just a consultant… ;)
@lucho870601 they are not given gooney in the first place, it is my tax money that is used to pay. we tax everything a couple of times here.
@luthfisk tack för den länken. hade ju varit trevligt om admin som raderade hänvisat till den direkt. nu förstår jag!
Seems Wikipedia guidelines are not on my side in this case. I’ll just have to work on getting published or win a sporting event. :)
@luthfisk värt ett försök… :) får fila på mina bokmanus istället.
All the grants are subject to tax, as any income.
There are two levels of paid family leave, the high at 80% of your salary up to 25k SEK or 1k/day. The last days “only” pay 90 SEK/day.
@smamat he has more than one, or at least he had. The most famous is Bronco’s Bar, w big servings for body builders…
@jameslosey Yes, SEK 25k/month (approx 2500 Euro or 3500 US dollars)
@LennartO Yes, I got them. And I’ve RT them to all of the followers of this account.
Wikipedia admins said my page was “irrelevant”. Perhaps this week one of you guys can help me prove they’re wrong?
I tried to make a sep page on me linked from Hoa Hoa’s on the Swedish version of Wikipedia, but it got deleted by the admins over and over.
@patrickgjackson Thank you!
@smamat Yes, he has at least a daughter of his own. She is probably my age and has taken over his restaurants now.
@patrickgjackson Oh, okay. :)
@hildgrim I’ll try that…
@xareena ja, men som egenföretagare och konsult har jag ibland inget val.
@hildgrim nope not here. at home right now.
@xareena oftast blir det så, att vi kan jobba hemifrån, om barnen inte är alltför sjuka. och då får man inte ersättning.
I have a signed 50×70 cm poster of me and Hoa Hoa in my office. Everyone was supposed to bring a picture of them self for the wall of fame.
@toughwzrd Yes, that is it.
@sherlaimov No we had a referendum in 1993 and “No to EUR” won (really tight race). So we kept our Swedish Krona/Kronor (crown/crowns)
Since I’m not getting paid from visit Sweden to act as curator this week, I guess it is okay to tweet while Vabbing. But better not tell.
@patrickgjackson why is that?
@JosephFinn Yes. And remember that I’m simplifying as much as possible to fit 140 characters.
@cfaherrero no it isn’t. but you can stay at home full day, but only apply for half day insurance for instance. if you have a flexible job.
@sherlaimov That is a very complicated question and I guess there are a lot of factors involved in the exchange rates.
@bananders Nope, he was “just” famous. They needed a baby, and someone knew someone who knew my mother.
Many thought Hoa Hoa was my father, which he is not. He was famous, and they needed a baby. Someone knew someone who knew my mother.
The campaign got international attention as well. Have you ever seen it before? In what wountry?
The campaign photo with me and Hoa Hoa is well known in Sweden, and still used in articles and text books to illustrate paid family leave.
@talkingdingo well, basically, yes! and sickness is exempt from the 480 days, once they are in day care/pre school.
“Vabba” doesn’t cut me totally from work. I can do most things via phone/computer. Harder for someone with a job where presence is required.
We have a word for when you are at home with ill kids. It’s called “VABBA” abbrev. from “Vård Av Barn”, translates “Caring for Child”.
@hildgrim yep, that was me. my earliest claim to fame!
The “Max Fee” means that I pay less for day care for my kids, than my parents did for me 30 years ago.
Day care is subsidized w tax money but you also pay a fee. The fee depends on your income, but is never more than SEK 1260 (1 child).
If you earn more than ~25k, then it is quite a big difference from working. Some employers offer a “top up” to 90% of your actual salary.
While on paid family leave you get a grant from the government instead of your salary. Simplified: 80% of your salary, up to SEK ~25k.
@AiglosMP Let me know if you have specific questions or topics that you would like to know more about!
.@trinnybopper Kids normally go every day. Unless you are on family leave w another kid. Then 15-30 hrs max day care (depends on county).
@oneplusiphoto total. but you can split it however you want. we took most of it before 18 mths (day care). rest during summer/vacation.
@aolmedo the mother gets 14 days before the estimated birth date. Some deliver 2 weeks after that and get a full month.
In 2011, fathers took approx 1/4 of the days. The prognosis for 50/50 split at the current pace is 2035.
In 1974, when the paid family leave was introduced, fathers took about 0,5 % of the available days (6 months then).
Lennart “Hoa-Hoa” Dahlgren is a Swedish heavy weight lifter who was chosen for the ad campaign that started in the late 70′s.
Increased paternity leave (fathers) was the message in ad campaign in the late 70:s where I was the baby in the arms of Lennart Dahlgren.
> Except for 60 days that are ear marked for each parent. There is an ongoing debate on how to increase fathers’ share of parent leave.
Altogether we have 480 days of paid family leave per kid – until they are 8 yrs old. It can basically be divided as the parents choose. >
Daycare/pre-school is common from when the kids are approx 12 months, but some start at 18 or 24 months.
We also have the possibility to stay at home with our kids on a longer basis, mostly used from birth until start in day care/pre-school.
Taking care of ill kids is covered by the parental insurance, and I get compensation for lost salary from the government (tax supported).
Speaking of our parental insurance. I’m at home today with our 7-year old daughter, she is ill.

@rivalg Not that I’m aware of. Today he runs a couple of restaurants, and did really well in a popular tv game show.
@aidanthefiddler I’ll tweet about that later.
@miimser I’ll do that from now on, when I think the question and answer is of common interest.
@Kubikles You wish…
@rivalg Yep! No, that is Swedish heavy weight lifter Lennar Hoa Hoa Dahlgren. And he is not my dad.
@ddimitriadis It doesn’t work like that. Next week another Swede will be in charge. Is there anything you would like to know more about?
@alisonbeech If you ask me I will say Stockholm. Don’t miss Vasamuseet, The Old Town and a boat trip in the lovely archipelago
This is me. Back in the days. http://t.co/apGn1Roj
@KatelynTatti I will tweet what I want. But I guess replies can be more direct. Thanks for your cheer!
But first: open both my eyes fully, wake up the kids, get dressed and have some breakfast before going via preschool/school to my office.
Today I thought I’d tell you a bit about the excellent parental insurance in Sweden. For which I have posed naked. Some 33 years ago.
Keep sending your questions and I’ll try to answer them throughout the day.
Good morning from another sunny day in Stockholm. This time of the year it often means just a few degrees above freezing point @ this time.
Sorry if I spammed your feed (5 hrs ago) by adding “.” before all my replies. Stopped now. Was trying to give general info to all of you. :)
@kolhjem it’s not my favorite pizza though. I prefer prosciutto/other dried meat, artichoke, esparagus; or maybe classic w banana/curry ;)
@kolhjem short answer: it’s good. Basically it’s a pizza covered with kebab meet and sauce. Maybe a green pepper (pepperoni in Swedish).
@lisacaswell got it. Sorry. Stopped now.
@Marthanna tack! Och tack för skjutsen. Ha en fin dag!
@ThatGuyOscar i will be up before you go to bed then. need to catch some sleep now. cheers.
@ThatGuyOscar there are probably some 8 hour time difference or so if you’re in Dallas. Time here is 1.14 am right now.
@OrkunEti Not sure if it is *really* necessary, but they sure look nice. I mostly use my card anyway.
@Count_Stuff yes we understand each other most of the time.
@AndreBusque not sure, you would have to check with our national school board or one of the schools.
The local time here is 1 am, so I’m gonna sign off now. Tomorrow I’ll leave the kids at school/preschool and then I would love further talk.
@Schatteleyn Sorry about that.
.@ronindotca @mjsm But… it’s a magic place…
Anyone? “@ryanmagnuson: @sweden – Any advice for healthcare workers? I’m getting my MD next year in the US, but I want to live in Sweden.”
.@mjsm Yes, right next to Narnia and Middle Earth.

.@gmcugolferMark sure. [attached daim]
.@iciousicious no not in general
.@richardksmith hard to say. Depends where you start, how long you plan to stay and your interests. Any more details?
.@hezymundo no we don’t have a minimum wage. But strong unions and entry level wages is effectively the same.
.@xLarys yes I’ll do my best. Do you have specific questions?
.@juffery what is your specialty?
.@mansoorb96 depends where you are traveling from and how. The largest international airports are in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmoe. >
.@fR00s we use Swedish Kronor (crowns). We choose not to convert to the Euro back in 2003.
Do you have questions about Sweden or Stockholm? Feel free ask to them.
.@Marionstockholm my favorite is the one at Hoetorget
@AndreBusque > you can get a job after university studies. (for some even after gymnasium).
@AndreBusque education is tax financed, i.e. “free” and we also get monthly grant/loan to pay for food, rent, books, beer etc. >
@Mike_Quist I try to do that every day. Carpe diem!

@TheCatCantina nice. Where is it?
@Bradagidag klart du får. Och sen göra något åt det!

@Bradagidag Högst rimligt, eller hur *ler*
@JCELaw Awesome picture!
@latzky Nice! what brought you to Sweden and Gotland?
@israelubeda I can understand why you think that. It’s a really popular place to visit among Swedes.
This is where I’m right now, my friend Emma’s office in the old tram hall in Stockholm. http://t.co/CkEkjFnO
@ChristaVdK Now I see, there is only the two towers and not anything behind. Looks really nice!
@SirWB Do that. If you know before Sunday I can send them a Hello from this account.
@Kriegaffe Glad you like it. Not my kind of music unfortunately.
@TheEmpressive The bridges look really nice. How old are they?
.@CaptainRaison Awesome scenery!
@SirWB Yes, it’s nice down there. One of my clients has its head office in Malmö. And my godparents lived there long ago.
@ChristaVdK Is that a bridge or a lock (gate for boats) in front of the church?
@beta75 Interesting to see if my RT gives a boost in views. Make sure the clip is accessible in all countries!
@Marionstockholm Yes, I live about 13 km south of Cenralen in Stockholm, or about 6 km south of Globen.
Great song by Swedish band Mando Diao “Gloria” http://t.co/FO5Azbvv
@SirWB Are they on Twitter?

@israelubeda I MUST GO TO BARCELONA!
Anyone? “@LowGmaN: @sweden I know this is off-topic but… any good places to brunch in Fridhemsplan on a Saturday?”
@LowGmaN Long time since I went to brunch (live outside with kids now) but you have the places along Norr Mälarstrand or on Hantverkarg.
@immellda This was a company trip. The first was me scouting, the second the actual trip.
@immellda Then I’ll go there next time!
@israelubeda Post it here or a link if you have it in any online service like Flickre or similar.
@JaapKlaver Nice with the wind mill there!
@SirWB Wow! Looks a lot like the north shores of Fårö, which is a small island north of the bigger island Gotland, where we spend our summer

The Michael Jackson tribute (last tweet) was shot at the underground level of Sergels Torg. Here is a pic from today. http://t.co/wMHwSsEQ
@simont38 don’t know why they do that. Feels a bit unnecessary if they only rt other content.
.@simont38 yes. Common in restaurants , hair dressers and when you use a handyman in your home. No receipt given. But decreasing now.
Michael Jackson tribute flash mob organized by Bounce http://t.co/6bV24s1B
.@simont38 Also handymen, but through a tax rebate to private customers, thus making black payment without receipt white.
@simont38 The Tax Auth have worked hard with hair dressers and Restaurants the last years.
@aslanovich Yeah, I know. Not so popular among taxis, buses, trucks, which is the reason. Also to avoid accidents when going into tunnels.
@TheEmpressive We are only nine million, so we need to learn English and other major languages
@aslanovich Last year Flak were allowed, this year banned altogether. Leaving many disappointed students behind.
@aslanovich when was that?
@TheEmpressive generally we speak good English, kids learn it from first grade now. So I think you would do really well.
@wzhkevin Saw that now! Followed right back.
I work as a management consultant, specializing in sales and marketing. I mostly work with B2B companies.
@wzhkevin Be sure to follow me then, petersvenonius
@Britt_W thought you did :)
.@eleni_sson I hope the cherry trees blossom this week.
@JuancHenao managed to remember that this week. But I do forget from time to time. Most common is the iPad making a sound when email arrives
@I_adik but I love sitting up during light nights in the summer. So I think I’ll go with good drapes and blinds instead.
@nikkischei you got the oil… :)
@TheEmpressive good morning when you wake up. Hope you remembered to mute you client so this didn’t wake you
@indigocat world cup is played in may I think to allow NHL players to join their national team. A great month to visit Stockholm!
@BergLindWall every time we win something. And when students finish gymnasium.

@harizxcvbnm sounds really nice and exciting! Thanks for sharing.
@mazzamozzy it’s a seminar on email marketing. Which is one of the marketing tactics I use for clients.
@mtobinod I’ve only been to Vancouver in Canada. On my way to Whistler mountain.
@mtobinod then let me start you up with a good morning once you wake up! (hope you muted your phone)
“@jacobmollstam: @sweden Starring Helena Bergström and Kjelle Bergkvist. Soon in a theater near you! ;)”

@mazzamozzy nope I’m a management consultant specializing in Sales and Marketing. But IT is a very important tool.
@mariawilliamson I’m grateful every day.
.@rarsson nope. The opposite. Only legitimate email marketing where recipients have opted in to receive news and promotions. Very effective!
.@MaithaQayed not sure. We are meeting at a place called “Taste The Restaurant” which serves really good lunch. I’ll take a pic!
@outoutout one of the reasons why we fell for our house and bought it!
.@Britt_W I’m in Stockholm. Work in the city and live in a house just outside.
.@auldzealand best tip for any curator is to mute your phone when you sleep, since followers are all over the world.
.@I_adik I love the light. But not in my bed room when I try to sleep. :)
@Mike_Quist exactly! But no Tom Hanks in sight.
@dosespressos I managed to get back to sleep. Overslept instead, so now I’m late for the morning seminar.
@I_adik it gets really light really early during the summer. Have to order those blinds soon… :)
@Linn91_ Scary! I hope you are ok and that you managed to calm down and get back to sleep.
@_EulaliO I guess if you are visiting that is ok. But I really need my sleep… :)
@WeAreAustralia how nice. Enjoy your stay in Stockholm.
@popkewitz thanks! I managed to get back to sleep.
@PeopleOfUK yes, this is so nice.
@auldzealand managed to get back to sleep. Overslept instead…

@Rinkosky thank you for the translation. It was fillet from wild salmon, which was served with new potatoes, fried vegetables and a paste.
@coachholmberg yeah, I know!
In the afternoon and evening I have three meetings, all related to various startups I’m involved in.
Now I’m off to work. First I will attend a seminar on email marketing. Then write a proposal for a client. Finally lunch with a dear friend.
Here is a pic taken just now from our house. The sun is shining and the birds are chirping today. http://t.co/QRDNk3UJ
Good morning guys! Gotta get ready and on my way to the seminar. Will tweet on the subway, in about 40 minutes.

@KatieKitney I say Swede!
@HaudIgnota Additions > Add Marker Hope it works
I look forward to answering more questions and telling you more about myself, Stockholm and Sweden tomorrow. Good night!
I’m about to go to sleep now. I have muted my phone, so feel free to ask questions throughout the night!
@FriederikeHell Did it work?
I’m sorry if I’ve missed answering anyone. Pls get back. Or if I’ve answered you twice. Trying to keep track of all mentions Keep’em coming!
@crofterbecca What’s your favorite whisky? I like the peet smokey ones from Islay.
@s00sie Hej! We look forward to having you back.
@Mickael_L innovate and build strong networks with other countries.
@suellewellyn There should be a restaurant guide to Stockholm in English. A tip is to look for highest rated restaurants: Svd.se pastan.nu
You can add your location to this wiki map http://t.co/kii6JfSI
@tommlie I love the water. Take a trip on a boat, in Stockholm and to any of the Islands outside, like Grinda or Sandhamn.
Really curious if my personal @Klout score will be affected be this weeks activity, although it is another account than normal.
Tomorrow I will have more time to tweet during the day, although I start with a seminar on email marketing at 8-10 am CET.
@suellewellyn I think you mean La Isla, you entered at the corner on the street level?
I think I have caught up with all lovely mentions/questions from you guys now. Thanks for your interest – and patience.
@suellewellyn Yes, I live in Stockholm (all my life) Was that Cuban salsa bar in Kungsholmen? >
@johnmckeag I’ll go to the Vasa Museum if you go to the Guiness Factory. Deal?
@crofterbecca but the word whisky has gaelic origin, right?
@Mickael_L I think there are as many examples as there are businesses. The challenge is to do a little thing better everyday.
@schwierczok I think the best way is if you can live with Swedes and do what they do in their everyday life.
@johnmckeag > There is a saying that you don’t explore your own town enough. Guess it’s true for me…
@johnmckeag Yea, it’s great. My eldest daughter went there with her school a couple of months ago. I haven’t been in 20+ years. >
@fooduileihpos It’s been a great day, you guys are really nice and interested. I’m trying to keep up with all mentions/questions.
Anyone that can help? “@1EdwardFuller1: @sweden who are THE cutting edge/ or most prominent Swedish poets now?

.@MahmoudElsayed I’m fine thank you. Just finished 2 meetings and I’m now en route to pick up the kids from school/pre-school. Then dinner!
@sveinnbirkir how do you keep track of who’s the same family or related?
@FriederikeHell I’ll do my best. Feel free to ask specific questions.
@FriederikeHell another place to add to my “haven’t been yet”-list. How are you doing?
@Fedgovy good afternoon! Would love a beer and some moules frites right now!
@erikssonvagen hi! Are you working in Jakarta?
I need to get a map so I can pin all different countries and nationalities talking to me! Any tips on digital maps I can use?
@andrew_amb thanks. My cousin is traveling in Australia and new Zealand this spring. Hope to go there someday too!
@tommysollen No French for me. Only Swedish, English and German.
@roboseyo We make fun of Norwegians.
Now I have to leave you guys. Have another meeting. Will continue answering questions & telling you more about me and my life L8ER. Cheers!
@LLStarlight Hi! Where in the US? I have been to the east and west coast a couple of times. Drove up Highway 1 in California once. Awesome!
@prasetyapanjhe the sun just burst through the clouds here in Stockholm. But still only about +6 degrees. Spring soon, I hope!
@Marionstockholm hooray for us then!
@imzeiger Hello! Have you been to Sweden? My sister lives with her family outside Köln since about ten years back. Auf wiedersehen!
@kaxkatten Yes, that was long ago. Now we inherit our parents surname.
@peregr1n The Viking days, when Swedes ruled the world. Not in a good way though!
@Ikoof Hello! Is it warm enough to swim in the ocean all year?
@randal_htx ¡Hola! Where in Spain are you? I’ve been to some places along Costa del Sol.
@nanakahl Hello, and thank you.
@CLRgrrl How are you enjoying Solna? I worked in Solna 2004-2007. Don’t miss Haga and the new soccer stadium.
@mrmyle Hi Belgium! How is Manneken Pis doing today? My sister’s sister-in-law lives in Liege. Welcome to Sweden!
@loremori Buon giorno! We have sun here now too, although only about +6 degrees. I look forward to real spring weather soon!
@iciousicious Hola! How are you?
@schwierczok Thanks. I’ll do my best! Let me know if you have specific questions!
@saraloveswill Hi! Hope you remembered to mute your phone so I didn’t wake you up in the middle of the night…
@Peri_Kleous Are you going to study in Uppsala? If so, what?
@tenoq I work as a management consultant, specializing in Sales & Marketing, mainly for B2B companies.
@skippychalmers racism is a hot topic in Sweden, with last weeks “cake scandal”. After the last election, 2010, SD entered the parliament.
@NiGhT__NuRsE Hi! My cousin is in NZ right now enjoying buggy jumping, diving and just having an awesome time.
@BlueRoseNZ Sleep tight. My cousin is in NZ right now.
@iGugge Hello Hofors!
@lucullus > For instance, I can request a copy of someones drivers license and passport photo.
@lucullus good question. I have no idea actually, although a lot of information is publicly available in Sweden. >
@liesbethbos Skansen is great, not so much a zoo as a collection of old Sweden. I think they are open at night, but check the web site.
@UltimateHurl Nice to meet you!
@avonwy Fine thank you. Trying to keep up with replying to all your marvelous questions and comments!
@Marthanna you should seriously change to that! :)
Done with training at the gym. Now a quick lunch and hopefully time to answer you guys before my next meeting in 70 min.
On my way to the gym. Quite cold today (6•C). But hopefully spring is around the corner! http://t.co/yniJXNZ0
@CanadianKelli it used to be like that. but long ago. nowadays we inherit our parents surname.
My surname is a latin form of Swedish name Svensson, which literally means “Son of Sven”.
Please ask me questions, or just say “hi” from your part of the world.
Done with my first meeting today. Tried to answer all the mentions from you nice guys. Soon of to the gym for a nice work out.
@liesbethbos I will do my best. Please get back if you have specific questions.
@tommlie July is a great month. You probably won’t see that many Swedes though, since we are all on vacation in July!
@judycopywriter God morton! I’ve been to Edinburgh in Scotland. Great place!
@anverket Thank you!
@ahmetyv What would you like to say? It has to be in English.
@noviaNonoov Hello Novia!

@evelinaander I’ll do my best!

@idrinkmusic Lot’s of places. I’ve been traveling quite a lot. 1 that springs to mind is The Great Wall of China. History, power, scenery…
@sunstarter Thanks a lot!
@DJDarren I’ll do my best!
@EmSeaDee Hi to you!
