"You are leaving us? That's a shame. Where are you going to next?"
This was the usual line of questioning and it as if they were expecting the answer that I had found another newspaper or magazine to work for instead. But my answer was always:
"I'm moving actually."
"Oh? To London?"
How I Learnt to Stop Missing England and Love the Herring or A Decade in Sweden is my account of the those little differences that make Sweden Sweden and England England. How does an Englishman cope with the prospect of eating fermented herring, saying "yes" when he doesn't want to or learning to tell the time from scratch?
This book will answer those questions as well as taking a light-hearted look at what it takes to live in Sweden from a Brit's perspective.
