By: Magnus Fri, 08 Oct 2010 09:35:13 +0000 It’s a pure coincidence that I’m living in London. After university I
figured it I should go live abroad, and England seemed like a good
idea at the time. I love the chaos that is London and all that it
offers. I enjoy wandering around, getting lost, not knowing what I’ll
find next. And if I’m ever homesick, I can always go to IKEA.

By: Elin Fri, 08 Oct 2010 09:32:25 +0000 I grew up watching all the British series, like Monty Python, Blackadder, Absolutely Fabuolous, The Young Ones … And I loved mostly British bands like Depeche Mode, The Cure and the whole ‘Madchester’ era.
I lived in London for the first time back in 97, and have since then moved back and forth a few times, I just knew that’s where I wanted to be.
I think it’s a Swedish thing to like London, it’s so special and ‘cool’ to be able to say to people back home that you live in London, work there and everything you get up to in London is so much more impressive than doing the same things in Stockholm!
My group of friends (Swedish and other cultures) often celebrate major holidays with lots of Swedish foods (bought at IKEA of course) and TV shows. And teaching my friends and boyfriend Swedish expressions and words always has hilarious outcomes!

By: Johan Fri, 08 Oct 2010 09:31:15 +0000 I moved to London mainly because of the music scene. I’ve lived here for 11 years now
I love the offer of entertainment, multi diversity and cultures.
I started eating Kalles Kaviar, which I hated when I lived in Sweden. And we still try to celebrate Midsummer, eat Crawfish in August and have Christmas parties (on the 24th).

By: Maria Fri, 08 Oct 2010 09:30:10 +0000 I moved to London seven years ago. There’s so many things to do and opportunities here that you don’t get in Sweden – you can get a job in London on the strength of your personality alone! Since living here I’ve had loads of fun, worked and lived in different places and met people from all around the world who have become lifelong friends. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, there’s still so much more to explore…
Swedish things to check out are the Nordic bar, the Swedish Church – which holds a fantastic Scandinavian Christmas market each year, and IKEA.
