Just to say hi to all forumites, I am very happy to be back. Was away for 5 months working abroad (in my home country of Sweden) and traveling in the central Europe as well. I learned a lot from you guys, keep this great forum alive please. If any of you travels to Scandinavia, I would be happy to give advice - no commissions here!
The main resorts are Salen och Are in Sweden och Drammen in Norway. The last one is particularly good late in the season( April). During Xmas and New Year it gets dark too soon, and it is overcrowded, but there are plenty of pists with lights. The resorts are of a high standard and more quiet and family oriented. Everything must work so efficiently and safety is a priority. Best time is Feb-April. Swedes are now happy that they did not join euro currency with its current problems. Economy is doing very well with swedish crown being independent. Rand and crown are nearly on parity, funny enough.
No John, that is an urban legend, based on few very early nudity involving films and some famous blondes in the past. Likes of Greta Garbo, Ingrid Bergman, Lena Andersson etc. Tiger Woods, Figo and many more have fallen for blond blue eyed swedish babes as well. The thing is also that girls up there feel totally emancipated and very demanding; like to pick their guy themselves and that surprises many foreigners who consequently consider them to be loose. But one has to accept this, be a good and contributing partner or its byebye, as what happened to Tiger.
