Sweden travel Three way meet in Old town 1 Six generations Relatives with American roots

Travel to Sweden in the summer of 2018

During many summers we have had the great pleasure to take care of and arrange for American realtives coming to Sweden. They wanted to walk on the soil of their ancestors and to meet with now living relatives in Sweden. We have become fully aware of the exitement they felt when they visited our well developed homeland and to be able to meet with contemporary relatives of their own age. Many of us living in beautiful and interesting environments and with the nearness to many sightseeing places well woth seeing.

You have of course to arrange for travel cost and timing for coming to and from Sweden. We hope you will message us well ahead of time. As soon as you have come we will take good care of you. We hope to be able to arrange and take care of your local travels, meals and lodgings. We expect you will be interested in walking on the roots of your ancestors. This could for instance happen in Varmland, Narke or Smaland. And to meet with contemporary relatives living in, or near the neighborhood of our capital Stockholm on the east coast or on the west coast with our second largest city of Gothenburg.

Notice that the value of the Swedish krona (SEK) is very low this year. You get much för your dollar.

American relatives coming to Sweden are often surprised by our high standard of living. And this as we have so many immigrants living here. I remember how surprised I became my self in USA when I wisited the American automotive industry during the 1980´s. And during conversations with Americans realized their limited knowledge about living cirumstances in forrein countries.

This is the reason why I in the last chapter of my book "My sister Christina", translated into English and added to this homepage, have added graphic information about what has happened in Sweden since Christina emigrated and the current quality of life in comparison with the situation in USA.

It has been a great pleasure for us having American relatives visiting us in Sweden during previous years. We have travelled together with them to: Stockholm, Närke and our own country house in Dalsland. Unfortunately no relative has yet visited their roots in the 
beautiful province of Småland. 

Now we have reached the end of month September. Unfortunately we have had no visits this year from relatives in USA.
This despite the fact that we have had an unique event near our leisure time resort Nackeloftet. The extremely beutiful Gota canal, one of the most beautiful canals in the world, has celebrated its 150 years anniversary, with the Swedish royal family present.
However we have had many guests from both Sweden and the north of Europe renting our timber cottage Nackeloftet. My sugestion is that you read this short story about Preserving a cultural heretige - Gota canal.
Notice that all our relatives are free to sty at Lackeloftet for free all the year around. Just let us know when this will suit you.
