An Expat Talks about Moving to Goteborg, Sweden

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Goteborg

Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.

I wish I had brought some American measuring cups/tablespoons. It was too much trouble to have to convert all my American recipes to metric. Wish I had also brought cold/flu medicines, because you can't find the strength you're used to in the US, except in prescription form. I wish I had left all my dress clothes, because I wasn't working in an office setting, and so they were very impractical to have and not used. Also wish I had left most of my shoes (especially the ones with heels), because those are impractical as well. Goteborg was very rainy and snowy, so some of my shoes were just ruined.

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

We lived in a flat. It is very typical of a lot of people from there.

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

We subleased from a friend at my boyfriend's office.

Are your housing costs higher or lower than they were in your home country? What is the average cost of housing there?

Higher than where I'm from in the US. We paid like 7000 sek for our flat and it was TINY!
