In the spirit of adventure, my family and I have decided to move to Stockholm. This will be the first time I’ve worked in a different country (and in fact the first time I’ve lived in a different country).
What’s been easy
The new company I’m moving to, 0+X, have been great. They’ve provided guidance on all the steps I need to take as an immigrant and even found me a really nice apartment.
What’s been fun
What’s been strange
They are much less afraid of having electricity in the bathroom than in the UK.
Every possible food item seems to be sweetened as much as possible.
Apartments, if they have washing machines, will have them in the bathroom. Turns out it’s just the UK that would put them in the kitchen.
Talking to people here made me realise a lot of Traditional British dishes have really strange names. Leading to the creation of: british-food-generator.herokuapp.com
Self service checkouts are less trusting than in the UK. You have to scan your receipt to open a gate to leave the shop. Before learning this I may have crashed in to a few barriers.
