Welcome to my blog!

On a late summer evening, on July 2005, I arrived in Stockholm Arlanda airport with my wife and two young sons, hoping to find work and live in Sweden.

Three years on, a lot of things have happened. I am now settled in Stockholm with a steady job, living in our own apartment and our children are in good school and University.

It has not always been easy. I could not speak Swedish, getting personal number took three months and we had to live in old rented apartment using my savings. I did not get any work for nine months, experienced the cold winter of 2005 for the first time. But the snow and winter of Stockholm was new to me and it was fun and it was wonderful.

I have now worked in the computer industry for nearly three years. I have worked with Swedish Satellite TV company, medical institution, publishing company and with computer consultancy agency. I have made friends, learnt to speak a little Swedish and understand how most things work in Sweden.

I want to share my experience with you and I hope that through this blog pages, I can give you lots of practical information that will help you to settle in Sweden. I hope you will find the information useful and most of all enjoy reading the blog pages. Please leave your comments and may be you can share your experience too with all the readers.
