That looks like expert travel writing to me. And apparently I should know...

Ganching

Congratulations even though I am wile annoyed not to have been include myself.

I totally agree with your assessment on salty licorice. At the Candy Baron in Santa Monica (where you can buy a single, individually-wrapped circus peanut) they sell "double salted licorice". It's beyond the beyond of nasty.

Poo? Really? I need this for an essay.

ganching

Well to be more technical - biofuel from sewage. In a town in southern Sweden they make energy from the byproducts of the local abattoir. Good luck with the essay.

jim baker

buses that run on poo? are you kidding me what will those crazy Swedish basterds think of next lol

Sydney

Wow Poop I mean CA CA Well at least i needed this for a project this is some good info...

April

I needed all of these for a project im doing and now I finally figured out why my brother is so tall!!! ;)
(because of fact 2)

You shouldn't believe EVERYTHING you read on the internet!! For accurate information have a look at this link http://www.cabe.org.uk/default.aspx?contentitemid=1318

poo thats weird i need this for a social studies report

sweden

Or... Liquorice is "lakrits" in swedish and alt liqourice is delicios and so much better than the sweet one. And we don't nod when we say no, that's an albanian thing. Over and out.

Jennie

number 6 isn't true. Where have you heard that? O.o

ganching

No. 6 is based on an extensive study of Swedish people carried out by myself during my one and only 24 hour visit to Sweden....as I've already said, don't trust everything you read on the Internet!!

lashay

i need to find this for a report and none of this sounds logical.!! peoplee.!! pooo.?! are you seriouss.!

ganching

Yes that one is serious - biofuel is made from sewage in parts of Sweden. In Linkoping in southern Sweden, the town buses run on fuel made from animal carcasses....strange but true. Having said that I strongly suggest if you are using this for a report you need to do more research. There's a link in one of the comments above which leads to a more reliable source of information than you're likely to find in random blogs.

asamaowei

well i want to know how the swedish ladies treat a stranger from africa?are they very romantic?i need to know....

2015 The List Of Stuff

  • 32 5 x Postcards
    I couldn't resist buying 5 postcards at the Ravilious exhibition - counting this as one item.
  • 28 - 31
    Four novels. I went a bit mad in Waterstones. I will have to donate some books to the telephone library this week.
  • 25 - 27
    Stuff from walkthewalk - t-shirt, hat and bra. All a bit tacky but for a good cause.
  • 23-24 Two Books
    Another copy of Time Out Book of Walks - my fourth copy so far? I also bought a book about walking which was a mistake as it involves very little reading but lots of fey nonsense.
  • 22. Packet of AAA batteries
    I didn't need to buy so many but they only came in packets of 12 and my television remote controller had stopped working and I didn't want to be restricted to watching only BBC2.
  • 21. A Hand Brush
    I know I shouldn't have but I did.
  • 20. A pair of shoes
    I also bought a pair of really expensive shoes in M&S. Pale blue loafers which are either a brilliant buy or a terrible mistake. I haven't decided yet which it is.
  • 19. Shoes
    I have to go to a work event next week which involves a bit of dressing up so I had to buy some dressing up shoes. I bought a mega cheap pair from M&S. I resent having to do this.
  • 18. Fridge Magnet
    The only thing I bought in Istanbul. Fridge magnets are the only kitsch objects I now allow in my flat.
  • 17 St Matthew's Passion Programme
    Given free at the concert at the Barbican.
  • 16 Denim Skirt
    I did want to buy a denim but I hadn't planned to buy a mid calf tight one. Oh well.
  • 15 A Pair Of Trousers
    I didn't really need these but I was in M&S and I tried them on and they were very flattering and well, what can I say?
  • 14 Dress
    I feel quite guilty about this and must dispose of 3 items of clothing to make up for it. Another very plain dress but, but it was so cheap and will be very good for work.
  • 13 Charcoal filters
    See 12
  • 12 - Mould Cleaner
    Rock and roll! I went mad in Lakeland.
  • 11 - Packet Of Large Plastic Envelopes
    I bought these to parcel up the items I am planning to sell on eBay.
  • 10 - A packet of 100 tea lights
    This is one item. I don't care what you say.
  • 7 - 9 Three small containers.
    What can I say? I went to Ikea and everyone knows if you try to leave without buying something they send you back to go round again.
  • 2 - 6. Kenwood Chef
    I have wanted one of these for at least 20 years. I bought a second hand one which died after a few weeks. This was in a sale and was less than half price. I now have the problem of getting rid of the second hand one. I am counting this as five objects; bowl, mixer and attachments; spatula; spanner; recipe book; and blender.
  • 1. Pot of Chrysanthemums
    I thought these were better value than a bunch of flowers. They cost £3.50.

A Thousand Things

  • 637 - Book
    I gave this book to my sister as I think she and her husband will both enjoy it.
  • 635 -636 Two books
    Donated to the telephone box library.
  • 633 -634 Assorted Papers
    These included a manual for a phone I no longer own, an out of date Liberty voucher and various other bits and pieces. Recycling bin.
  • 632 - Packet of Pudding Rice
    Sell by date October 2008. Bin.
  • 631 - Grey Dress
    I bought this when I started work after my redundancy. It was grey and sack like and I liked it very much but I wore it to death and it is a little too big. Gone to the charity shop.
  • 630 - Pair of Sheepskin Gloves
    Lost in early March. I think I left them on the bus.
  • 629 -Set of Measuring Cups
    Surplus to Requirements - I sold these in March but forgot to list them.
  • 628 - Tin Box
    I bought this in Tiger, the middle-class version of a pound shop. Donated to a charity shop.
  • 627 - Jug
    This is quite pretty dating from the 30s/40s so hopefully somebody will be pleased when they find it in the charity shop.
  • 626 - Alarm Clock
    Unused for several years and probably not working. Charity shop.
