Something we will not have the same access to in Sweden are the Alps. We drove 40 minutes to some friends and had a day filled with sun, snow and fun. Or kind of. That was after we got stuck on the snowy/icy road, which required the use of snow chains that we thank God had left in the car from when we bought them two years ago. That was also after we ran out of gas (in the middle of trying to get up that icy hill). But when we were done with that we had a supreme lasagna late lunch and dessert. That is when we headed up the mountain to go rodeling. Or sledding if you like. About 1.5m snow (that is more than 4 ft) and a perfectly prepared sledding hill was a lot of fun!
