    • Easiest way to travel from Helsingborg to Osby, Sweden

      Sweden Mar 26, 2015 at 6:45 AM

      Hello, I am planning to study in this particular school in Sweden, http://ekbackeskolan.nu/, and I want to know if there are any places to stay in Helsingborg that have reasonable prices. I was supposed to stay in Osby, but I believe that Helsingborg has more things to offer, I don't mind the travel time as long as my place is relatively close to Osby.

      public transportation

      Eksjö Mar 25, 2015 at 2:35 PM

      Some of my ancesters were from Eksjo, Hult and Ingatorp in the 18th and 19th centuries. I will be spending 4 days in Eksjo in the spring. Is the bus transportation adequate for getting to and from Hult and ingatorp in a day for my exploration? It appears to be a rural area so not sure if the bus is regular and reliable. I'd rather not rent a car.

      bike trails

      Umeå Mar 25, 2015 at 2:45 PM

      I will be spending 3 days in Umea in the spring as some of my ancesters were from there. One of them was born in Umea and her mother was born in Boggbole. I see there is a bike path that connects Umea to Boggbole and Boggbole Manor through the woods? I'm traveling alone and although born in the country, I never felt comfortable in the woods by myself…nuts perhaps. Is this area safe? Is there a bus that goes there in the summer? Would a taxi be wiser? I will not have a cell phone with me. There are ruins of an old sawmill in which my Gr…grandfather worked that I would like to explore also. Any knowledge of this area or suggestions? Norlin and Linstrom were a couple of the names. Is there an old cemetery in the area also (LOL)?

    • Decent place to rent in Osby, Sweden

      Sweden Mar 15, 2015 at 12:25 AM

      Hi there, I accepted an offer at this school, Ekbacke IT School (you can find their info here - ekbackeskolan.nu/vara-utbild... Osby, Sweden. I'm a foreigner of the said place and I wanted to know any good place to rent there for a while. Usually how much is the average monthly rent cost in Osby, Sweden and what are the things I need to know before i sign contracts (as i'm unsure if the setup is different from that one I'm usually accustomed with). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    • Osby / Ekbackeskolan

      Sweden Mar 4, 2015 at 11:54 PM

      Hello everybody! My husband got a job in a little town Osby in Skane southern Sweden. For me (without prior knowledge to Swedish language) it's most likely impossible to find any decent job, so I was thinking of going to study instead. I googled a bit but so far the only school I found was this one http://ekbackeskolan.nu/  which apparently doesn't offer any courses in English so it's out of question for me. Are there any other opportunities in the town or the near area ? I thank you a lot for your time !

    • Help - Tour destinations and what to do in Laxån, Sweden

      Sweden Mar 17, 2015 at 10:38 PM

      Hi there, I'm taking a short vacation in Sweden and I'd like to know if any of you are familiar with the small village called Laxan? I saw few references like this link (http://laxon.se/) but there isn't much information about the place and apart from it, it's way too confusing. There's Laxon, Laxa, Laxan. In spite of this, I've read great reviews about it's nature abundant place. In any case, any ideas where I can tour around and get great photo shots (scenary, flying hobbies, etc)? What hotel is recommended there and what food, etc. Any suggestions would be a great help.

      My wife and I are planning to visit from Scotland for a short break in July. We are not late nighters and we are looking for a hotel which serves dinner as well as breakfast. Or a hotel with a number of medium priced restaurants nearby. Also a location which gives easy access to Hop On Hop Off buses/boats/tourist attractions. Any advice would be appreciated.

    • Telephone services from US to Sweden

      Kalmar Dec 23, 2014 at 8:29 PM

      What s the best way to allow our daughter to call us from the US while we are visiting Sweden for a few weeks? We heard about a company that would allow us to carry a prepaid cell phone that would allow us to receive incoming calls at no cost. We use all prepaid cell phone service (Net10 and Virgin) now at home so we don't have phone service that would allow calls to Sweden. We would like to purchase prepaid cards for our daughter to use before our trip.

      Any other suggestions?

      Thank you.

      trains to vimmerby from stokholm

      hi,
      i'm going to go to Vimmerby this summer. Last time I was there, there was a train route via Lingkoping (and , as I checked, there is such possibility now). But , as I checked connections in the Net, there is no such possibility in August. Does anyone there know whether there will be some changes in train routes or it is just problem with booking system ? Many thanx in advance

      My daughter is moving to Lund to work in a Montessori school there. I'll be flying over with her and staying for a month. Has anyone any suggestions on the most affordable place for the two of us to stay? We'd prefer some place in Lund, because we'd really like to walk everywhere. But if that's cost prohibitive, I'd of course appreciate any suggestions.

      Am planning on being in Lund, Sweden for several months with my daughter and wondered if anyone was interested in a house swap for that period of time (possibly around September 2013 or later). My home is a lovely two bedroom, two bath with a garden of berries, apples, vegetables, flowers and lots of rhododendron. Ten minutes from town, but country-like setting a mile from the ocean.

      I am confused. My ancestor came from Ljungby, which I thought was in Kronoberg lan but now am wondering if there is a Ljungby in Kalmar lan also. Their births were registered at St. Wi parish in Kalmar lan, 1833, but once found a list of the parishes in Kalmar and could not find St. Wi listed.

      SKIING in Sälen, Sweden

      Salen Jan 18, 2006 at 7:23 AM

      SKIING in Sälen, Sweden

      Hi all,

      We are an Irish couple heading to Sweden in a couple of wks and have a few questions that we were wondering maybe someone could help us out with. We fly to Stockholm on the 4th of February. Kind of last minute notion we got in our heads....

      TRANSPORT
      1. We hope to take the bus/train to Falun. Is there a bus from Falun to Sälen?
      2. Or is it necessary to go all the way up to Mora or Malung to get the transfer?
      3. Bus/train? Which is cheaper? Can we get tickets when we arrive in Stockholm or should we book before?
      4. Is it possible to rent a car in Falun/Mora/Malung to drive and drop-off in Oslo where we plan to spend a couple of days also? Can you recommend any car rental places? (It seemed from www.sj.se there are no trains to Oslo at all on those days... so car rental a possibilty...)

      ACCOMODATION
      5. Is it possible to book for just 3 nights (e.g Sun, Mon, Tues) in the Sälen ski resort or do we have to pay for the full “short week” (Sun - Thurs)?
      6. What is the best/cheapest hotel/cabin/holiday village? (We are 2 people)

      SKIING
      8. Can we get a Ski-pass when we arrive or should we book it before?
      9. Likewise for Ski-hire...
      10. Likewise for Ski-lessons...

      Thanks a million!!!
