May 25, 2012 - Stockholm, Sweden - Day 17
PharmSCAN Blog report: May 25th/May 26th On our final day in Stockholm, we spent our morning with Peter Hulten from the Swedish Poisons Information Center. He was very welcoming and generous with his time, even though his schedule is quite busy. First, we began by discussing the differences within the practice of pharmacy along our Scandinavian journey. We compared and contrasted the various countries visited to the practice of pharmacy we are most familiar with, the United States. Next, we took a “fika” break which was thoroughly enjoyed...Jump to full entry
May 22, 2012 - Stockholm, Sweden - Day 14
The PharmSCAN team arrived in Stockholm, Sweden late Monday night after a train ride through the beautiful Norwegian/Swedish countryside. After a good nights rest, the team was ready to enjoy our two free days in beautiful Stockholm. The first stop on our journey was Gamla Stan or 'The Old Town' in Swedish. This beautiful city center has been in existence since the thirteenth century and its cobblestone streets are hundreds of years old. The island itself is situated in the center of Stockholm harbor allowing us to get great pictures of the...Jump to full entry
Mar 20, 2012 - Sweden
When I got off the plane in Sweden I was shocked because the time there was 6:00 P.M. and my watch said 12:00 P.M. It was the summer time and so the temperature was only in the upper 60's. After that I went to go to a football game. Everyone there were talking in Swedish luckily I was able to under stand it because i spoke Swedish. Once I got there I heard this big discussion about the captain of the football team. He got removed from his position because he was discriminating someone. I meet up with my cousin Peter at the game and later...Jump to full entry
Mar 19, 2012 - New Zealand here I come!
I´m going to New Zealand and I can´t barely wait! It going to be so much fun, me alone in this adorable country. But first I have to do all preparations. It´s boring, but it worth it all, because who doesn´t want to go to New Zealand? Here in Sweden our degrees is under the zero, because it´s winter. While in New Zealand it´s summer and it´s going to be hot! So I no longer have to freeze to death when I´m out. Today I´m going, and the flight goes from Arlanda here in Sweden 17.15 and then it will land in Amsterdam 19.25. There I can buy...Jump to full entry
Mar 7, 2012 - Back on the ice ledge again...
I'm back in my native Sweden and while it's a bit chilly I'm really having a lovely time seeing friends and family again. Isn't it strange how when you return it sometimes feels like you've never really been gone at all? That's a very positive feeling for me. I's been pretty much exactly two and a half years since I moved to London after all... We've had some very nice late winter days lately, blue skies and sunny though a bit of a bite in the air as it's a couple of degrees below 0... but it's not bad at all really. Of course, first thing...Jump to full entry
Mar 4, 2012 - Less then 24 hours left....
Even though we knew that this day was coming it still has felt a little unreal. We are actually going to the US and now in less then 24hours we will be in the air on our way to London! Can't believe it actually. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed and keep checking and double checking my to-do list. Gosh I sure hope I haven't forgotten to add anything to that list. Have I got everything with me? Is everything that I needed to get done before I leave taken care of? And last but not least, What if we oversleep tomorrow and miss our flight! I...Jump to full entry
Mar 3, 2012 - 4 more days or.....
Well I thought we had for more days before we leave but Eric and Julia informed me that I don't know how to count. I was counting Saturday day 1, Sunday day 2, Monday day 3 and Tuesday day 4 but they told me WRONG! From Saturday to Sunday is day 1, From Sunday to Monday is day 2 and from Monday to 7 am Tuesday is almost a day which would make it day 3. I guess I have to agree with the kids on this one =) Today the kids just want to hang out at Sophie's apartment where we are currently living. Her apartment is small but cozy so it's like we...Jump to full entry
Mar 1, 2012 - Only 5 more days...
One day closer! Yesterday was a busy day spent tying up loose ends. We did have a little good bye visit with some friends and that was nice. We woke up this morning with the Swedish spring sun shining through the window. I heard from my Aunt Cathy in LA that we should have nice sunny weather when we get there too. I hope so, these whitey bodies of ours need sunshine =) Today we're going to head on over to Julia's godmothers house for lunch. Another friend of ours will be there too. Feels a bit strange for all of us to be saying good bye...Jump to full entry
Feb 29, 2012 - Only 6 more days.....
Tickets are booked and suitcases are packed. Now all we have to do is wait. That's the hard part. I am really grateful though about not being able to get the airline tickets for Friday since yesterday Eric came down with a monster of a fever. I actually had to take him to the hospital. He was screaming in pain his tummy hurt so bad! Poor thing, i thought maybe he had appendicitis or something and was thinking "Oh No!! Not now" But then I got thought well better now then next week. Anyway it turned out not to be his appendix. Today his fever...Jump to full entry

Jan 22, 2012 - O'week cont. & Stockholm
Hejsan! So think I was talking about Scav hunt last time- we won! Had to go get a bunch of photos and find special cats and stuff, but we won this massive bag of swedish lollies- half of which were disgusting & tasted like salt! What the hell Sweden?! Tues- Had some international fika (coffee & cake) and then were meant to have the international welcome dinner at Snerikes nation but apparently half our group forgot to sign up so we just played in the club instead! Did manage to crash someone elses breakdance circle in true Jonah style, and...Jump to full entry
Jan 19, 2012 - Stockholm.
19 January. The train was a so called a “double-decker”. Normally, I don’t like to travel with those. They are in my mind narrow, squeezed and overcrowded. But not this time, for the very first time, I had a seat on the upper floor and instead of 40-50 other persons around me, it was only 5 others persons, which I had to share the area with. With other words it was plenty of room. Unfortunately this train did not go the nearest and quickest way to Stockholm. So I had to go the long way, via Örebro and Västerås to Stockholm. But it was a...Jump to full entry
