Lana in Sweden

Directory > Europe > Sweden
Travel, crafting, restaurants, everyday blog is about experiencing life in Sweden as a mom, as an artist, as a person who is new to the Swedish culture. Everyday is an adventure and an opportunity to learn something new about others (and about yourself). Sometimes laughing (so I don't cry) I share the joys of what makes living the expat life so incomparable with any other way of living.

  • About me: I'm an artist and writer, living abroad with my US Diplomat husband and 4 kids. We've lived in Greece, Austria, The Netherlands, San Francisco, LA and now Stockholm, Sweden. I love experiencing new cultures, places and people. Sharing my perspective with others helps me see the world isn't such a big place after all. There's so much we have in common, but what makes us different is also what makes us endearing. As I travel the globe, my viewpoint expands, my recipe folder grows and my heart enlarges. I don't know who I'd be without all the people I've met along the way, teaching me about life and broadening my views. It's not easy packing up a family household every couple of years, but it's worth it when you consider that what we've gained is so much greater than anything we've lost.

    “I forgot to get the pictures I painted,” says my 5-year old Maggie, leaving me to wait at the preschool pick-up as she races back inside the building. My eyes scan the parking lot now filling up with cars. I glance at my watch. Another few minutes and it will be packed with moms and dad...

  •  DON?T SNOWPLOW THE SLOPES OF LIFE:Memoirs of a Five-Year Old in Ski School
    It was the first day of ski school and I watched from a distance as my 5-year old daughter, Maggie, lined up with the other girls and boys her age, wearing skis (some for the first time). From my bird’s-eye view on a sunny balcony, the training hill appeared as an island of manmade snow surrou...
