I’ve lived in Northern Sweden for two years now, and I’m enjoying it for the most part. But I have to say that I miss Norwegian landscapes – the variety, and being able to see the sea and mountains at the same time. This part of Northern Sweden is flat and filled with industrial tree plantations. And mosquitos. It’s a good thing that it’s only a 7-8 hour drive over to visit family in Mosjøen, a small aluminum processing town, dramatically squeezed in under the mountains by the sea.
