Jessica and her husband greeted us warmly on our arrival, and offered some excellent suggestions to make our stay more enjoyable. While we were there, their neighbors also kindly stopped by to say hello and offer their help as needed. We felt very welcomed!
Their home is located in a suburb of Stockholm, but was easily accessible by bus and train to the central city (just make sure you have your transit passes purchased ahead of time to use the buses). Their home is comfortable and spacious, tastefully decorated but not precious, and my son especially enjoyed having the yard to play soccer (and really loved when a neighbor boy stopped by and joined him!); we also enjoyed sitting out on the deck during the long Swedish evenings. There is a store for groceries just a 5 minute bike ride away, and Jessica kindly allowed us use of 4 bikes and directions to a swimming area at lake a 20 minute ride away (which was an enjoyable afternoon for my family).
Although Stockholm is a beautiful and charming city, it was nice to come "home" to Spanga each evening and enjoy the quiet and calm.
