Finally, I’ve made it to this beautiful little Scandinavian wonderland, a haven of socialism and rationality and environmentalists and Ikea and secularism and Swedes (probably the most attractive men and women in the world).
Stockholm, Sweden has been an amazing city not only to visit but also to live in as a foreign exchange student. I understood before my arrival that Sweden worked hard to maintain equality amongst all, no matter your gender or nationality.
