Flat in Stockholm, close to the city, the sea and the outdoors. An early summer exchange?

We live in Lidingö, an island suburb of Stockholm. Being close to the city, the sea and the outdoors, you have a variety of activities within reach.By car, you reach the centre of Stockholm in 10 minutes, by public transport in 20 minutes. From our apartment there is a short walk to the tram stop on the one side and the shoreline on the other, with a great wiew of the sea.

We live in a 4-room apartment (96 sqm ) in a calm neighbourhood in a three storey brick house built in the 1950s. There is a large living room with a balcony, three bedrooms, a bathroom and an additional toilet. In the fully equipped kitchen 4-6 people can have a meal together. Nearby there are two playgrounds, one for younger children right behind the house and another bigger, newly refurbished also close by.

About Our Family

We are: Anna, (46) who works as a minister (Church of Sweden) in the parish of Hägersten and Sören (45) who is a manager at a software company. We are the happy parents of Martin (16) who is on his way to become an actor and Simon (14) who would love to become a basket player.

Lifestyle

Lidingö is very suitable for biking and in the spring and summer we love to bike around the island. As a family, we also sometimes like to challenge ourselves and try something we have not done before: we have taken summer courses in film animation, improvisational theater and stand up comedy. We appreciate travelling as a good way to learn and expand our horizons. We have had five great exchanges through Intervac: Paris, France 2011, Valencia, Spain, 2012, Fribourg, Switzerland 2013, Graz, Austria 2014 and Liepaja, Latvia 2015. In 2018 we are planning a longer vacation in the USA in connection with two different work related conferences. A one or two week exchange during this period to enable us to experience more of everyday american life would be very interesting.
