Hi! The name is Tobias, but feel free to call me Toby. During my week I’ll discuss what it’s like to join a maritime education with no former experience of being at sea. I’ll also discuss why I chose to not chase my journalism career, and what it’s been like to move from a small town in Småland to Sweden’s second largest city, Gothenburg. I’m usually known as @finkladd.

@ctomw Oh, I'm going deep on the subject. Meanwhile, enjoy the last model they ever released.

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 11:12 p.m.

I'm just about to go to bed. It has been an exciting first day! Not too many trolls, only one international incid…

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 9:55 p.m.

@honungsbi2009 I said Surströmming was rotten, not fermented.

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 9:28 p.m.

This only proves my family even more correct.

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 9:26 p.m.

@wahlskog Ooh! The windy city! One of the many cities I want to visit some day.

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 8:32 p.m.

@kazemaruYB I don't know... Perhaps we need to see more Swedes abroad?

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 8:26 p.m.

@kazemaruYB Yeah. I did. I should've worded option 1 differently.

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 8:16 p.m.

I just removed the tweet about surströmming. Geez, that was the most controversial thing I've ever tweeted judging…

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 7:59 p.m.

@Lettybird It says scones in the recipe book.

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 7:03 p.m.

All I know is that Liechtenstein's a small place, Padre. Sorry I can't give you a better answer.

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 6:43 p.m.

@FruJonsson A great one, in fact! Thank you for your wonderful week!

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 6:43 p.m.

Please, Svea, I'm trying to watch TV!

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 6:18 p.m.

Kex. I'm not a true Gothenburger yet.

I'm going to watch a few more episodes of Fargo, the TV-series. I absolutely love it! The acting is spot on. I'll…

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 4:59 p.m.

@pdx_photoman That'd probably fall under option 1 as well.

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 4:56 p.m.

@MikeNicolella I hope you would feel welcome if you would ever decide to come here!

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 4:50 p.m.

I'm sorry that I forgot about expats! I suppose Option 1 is the one to go for.

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 4:50 p.m.

@maxarthurp @Fotbollsdamp Indeed they were... I hope I match up to his week, despite my constant bickering about local history today.

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 4:48 p.m.

@djShmeeJay Dang it! I forgot about expats! I'm so sorry if you feel left out!

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 4:45 p.m.

@xgebi Well, I'm glad to have you here!

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 4:44 p.m.

@ilthea Oh! What did you while you were here?

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 4:43 p.m.

@mocy1983 You are always welcome to come here! How's your Swedish working out for you?

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 4:40 p.m.

So how come you are following this account? I'll leave a poll, but feel free to elaborate if you want to!

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 4:30 p.m.

It's already pitch black outside. Sigh.

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 4:05 p.m.

Yeah. It'll happen soon though! Once I turn 20 in February I'm allowed to bring home some "souvenirs".

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 3:58 p.m.

Correction about Surströmming: (I'm still sceptical about its edibility.)

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 3:51 p.m.

@valerie78635351 I'm sorry but I don't know what Higge is.

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 2:59 p.m.

Smörgåstårta is the food item that would be the death of me. I would eat until I would explode.

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 2:20 p.m.

Ah! Internship! That's the word I was looking for. It's four periods à three months each.

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 2:19 p.m.

Not exactly. It's named after the river that flows by our town, Emån.

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 2:13 p.m.

Yet another church. This one has been converted to a Second Hand Store.

*Ding-Dong!* Who's there? The 70's and the town is growing faster than ever! Aparment blocks! Public buildings!

@sweden Jan. 1, 2018, 2:01 p.m.

This is the second active church in Bodafors. The Emåkyrkan. Beautiful design.
