Day two in Kalmar, Sweden we woke up excited to hear we would be meeting students from Linnaeus University!
We related meeting with students at Linneaus University to a play date arranged by parents. David and Jodi thoughtfully coordinated with Anders Fröjmark of Linnaeus to arrange a casual cook-out between students. What a success! We enjoyed delicious food and delightful conversation with a variety of students. Our discussions ranged from light hearted travel talk to dep political an philosophical musings. The students were warm-hearted and welcoming. At our table, we had Siiri, a student from Finland, and Adam and Patrick from Sweden. We are all life-long Facebook friends! We learned Swedish words, shared stories from home, and offered connections for future travel meeting people along our trip has truly been a highlight of such a unique and magical adventure. Go Kalmar!
