How long have you lived in Stockholm?
I moved to a suburb of Stockholm from the countryside when I was four, and then moved into the city in high school – so about five years ago. I shared a tiny, tiny flat with a friend and slept in a bunk bed. It was kind of awkward sleeping in the top bed if she brought someone home. I couldn't bring anyone home; the bed was too unstable. But I once brought home this giant sparkly Christmas tree in July.
What is it about Stockholm that makes you want to stay?
Aside from my friends and family being close by, I really love how close it is to nature – the archipelago, beaches in the middle of the city, and all the parks. I don't think Stockholmers really understand how unique it is that we can actually swim in the water all around us. In most big cities, if you so much as dip your fingertip in some canal, you will get all kinds of diseases never before known to mankind. Our water is clean but a bit too cold to swim in unless it’s summer.
