Hey, I am Daniel Reed and thanks for reading my blog. In April 2014, my girlfriend and I finally packed up our life in the UK and moved to Stockholm. It took 6 bags on a plane and 4 courier boxes (30kg each) to get here but after 2 years of talking, we did it. Since then we are just two twenty-somethings living life in this fantastic city.
Blogs from expats in Sweden
Would you like to work, live, move to Sweden? Or just to find out how is life in Sweden? We've got much more than travel brochures: read blogs written by expats living in Sweden!
Scribbles from a New Yorker recently arrived in Stockholm by way of Sicily. Consummate urbanite feathering my nest, seeking cozy country comforts and learning how to be an American abroad. Obsessed with gentle living, fresh flowers, Mexican food, candlelight, historical/art fiction and meandering my way through multi-national immigration bureaucracy shenanigans. Also: a voracious reader/knitter and speed talker. Drinker of milky tea/coffee and classic cocktails. Enjoying newly-begun expat life, one horrifically-mispronounced word at a time.
The main purpose of my blog is sharing my expat experiences with my readers. I am interested in language, culture, people and society, self development, fitness and animals. So, if you visit my blog, you will find most of those topics being covered from an expat perspective. In the pursuit of developing a steady writing habit, I dared myself to write a post each single day of the coming year starting Feb 27, 2014. Occasionally, I will use the "365 Days of Writing Prompts" e-book as a guide for ideas when I happen to run out of those. You are very welcome to drop by to read, comment or just to say hi!

As an architecture student, turning architect, turning a wife to a Swede - I try to capture some of the events in my life, as well as my professional interests and general comments about Sweden on this blog. It is growing everyday, and so am I.
