Shocking Stockholm and beautiful laundrettes


We are all always interested to hear what outsiders have to say about our home town.  So you can understand that I was fascinated to stumble across these impressions of Stockholm on the Quora website.

First and biggest complaint? The impossibility of finding a apartment. Now there’s something to talk about at our next course in Housing English!



But it’s not all bad news. Despite finding the booking system a little strange at first, on leaving Stockholm, the writer felt nostalgic for the communal laundry, the beloved “tvättstuga.” You’d be amazed at how many foreigners who have lived here are overwhelmed by nostalgia when you mention it.
