Hello Everyone

Jade here (SpiderZA).

I am born and bred in Cape Town, South Africa.

We are hopefully moving to Sweden through my Husbands work soon.  Not sure if Gutenberg or Jarfalla yet.

I would love someone to bounce questions off until we go over, be warned though....I can ask a ton of questions :D

Hope everyone has settled in nicely or at least that your plans are going smoothly :)


Jarfalla will be close to the capital, if you are moving first time to the country.

Thank you Raun.

I have looked at the maps so many times although it really means nothing to me since i don't know the country :(

I was looking at the map this morning and saw that Uppsala (Which has 2 schools that might suit our needs) is workable as a living area should my husband work in Jarfalla?  Would you say it is advisable or should we look elsewhere?

Do you know what the rental market is like?


Hi all!
