Känna känna! I'm moving to Stockholm on January 20th. How about we put together a fika or something the last week of January? I'll be a bit south of the city but happy to travel for a meet up. Any interest?

O hai future Swede-to-be! Welcome to the land of knäckemacka and winter depressions! Irl mefimeetup sounds fun and scary and nice, I'd be interested ^^

Yay! I hope this time it will work out, we've had a dismal record of meetup attempts here. January is still within the range of new-year resolutions being upheld, so chances are good!

Perfect! I was talking to Eko who is new in Sweden so I will get hen into this thread as well. Fab!

I’m so happy people are into it! It’s also nice to be moving back to a country that uses hen! I am bringing a light box with me so I am ready for the gloom. Where should we meet? There is a thrift store with a coffee shop that I kind of like; I’m also a fan of fusty fika places with old furniture but they are pretty pricey. Also like Bio Rio at Hornstull. I’ll be coming from Bredäng; where’s everybody else located? What kind of place is good for a meet up?

Dee Grim, I just listened to A Legacy Denied. Really enjoyed it. Don't be scared. I bet everyone is nice in a good, not boring way. Personally, I'm a gregarious introvert. I like to meet new people, and I'm chatty but then I have to go home and curl up in a ball alone for several hours to recover.

Welcome to Stockholm then.
Would gladly partake in a meetup too.
its been a while - once we had one at my son’s restaurant - Babajan - its still there at Katarina Bangata 75 (www.babajan.com) but open for any other suggested venues as I cook the lunches there. can get anywhere on my electric bike unless there’s a half metre of snow.

Yay! Where in Stockholm doesn't matter much for me, public transport get's me anywhere.

End of January is a good time - Knut is past, and sportlov not yet on. Looking forward to meetup! May even start lurking regularly again :)

I am 100% in, only constraints are:
* My spouse is flying to Sweden on Jan 26th, she would be interested in a meetup but the first few days will be unpacking chaos
* We are an hour train from Stockholm so can't get there on a weeknight before 1830 and need to leave for home by 2130
By then I will have been three months in Sweden, will be good to hear everyone's experiences... thanks for getting this started!
