The city where bicycles dominate

After reading through some of the comments on this blog I came across a brilliant video someone had referenced to me, made by the BBC.

It talks about Lund and its popular bicycle culture….very interesting and a must share for the TotallySweden Blog and the rest of the blogosphere!

Totally Sweden

Posted in Sweden with tags , , , , , , on February 12, 2010 by Stephen Johnson (Jonk87)

Firstly, a big hello to anyone who is reading my blog.

My name is Stephen, I am a 22 year old male from Newcastle Upon Tyne. I am currently studying Public Relations at Sunderland University.

I am writing this blog to discuss the differences between Swedish and English culture.

My girlfriend has recently moved over from Lund, Sweden. She currently has not met any other Swedish people in Newcastle. I am curious to see if there are many, if any out there.

I am using this blog as a tool to try and reach other Swedish people living in the North East in the hope that she can meet and make friends with others from her homeland.

Please feel free to comment, ESPECIALLY if you are from Sweden, living in Newcastle.
