So much candy!

A while ago my boyfriend came to Linköping to visit me, and since we had a car we decided to explore the area around Linköping a bit. One of the places we visited was the Cloetta store in Ljungsbro, about 13 kilometers north of Linköping. Cloetta is a candy brand that is quite popular in Sweden, and one of their factories is in Ljungsbro. Close to it, they have a store where they sell a lot of different candy, including some ‘faulty’ candy, that for example has a mistake on the wrapper. This candy can be bought for a discount. We decided to check it out and we bought quite some different things, some of which are very popular in Sweden. For example, we bought Kex, which is very widespread, and also Ahgrens bilar (cars). Here you can see a picture of our haul 🙂

 

If you are now longing for candy, you do not actually have to leave Linköping: Cloetta also has a store in Gamla Linköping, where they sell mostly the same things.

Another visit to Arbetets Museum in Norrköping

A few weeks ago I visited the Museum of Work, or Arbetets Museum, in Norrköping. I have been there before, and have also made a post about it before. Since I was in Norrköping again a while back, I went back to this museum. They had a few new exhibitions. I took pictures of one of them, which was an exhibition about refugees, which had pictures about different refugees from different countries.

There was also a ‘better shelter’,which is a form of emergency housing for people who have fled their homes. It was very interesting to see this in real life, and it is great to see what people are inventing to make people’s lives at least a little bit better.

As mentioned in my previous post, I went on my first Erasmus+ Youth Exchange in March. It took place in Pescara, Italy. I figured it might be interesting to tell you a bit more about this particular youth exchange, and how I experienced it.

Erasmus+ Opportunities

When people talk about Erasmus, the mobility program of the European Union (and several other partner states), most people just think about going on an half-year or year-long exchange. This was what Erasmus was originally when it was started 30 years ago. In 2014, the programme was renamed to Erasmus+, combining a range of schemes for education, training, youth and sport. Since the introduction of Erasmus+, there are a lot more opportunities available than only going on a longer-period exchange. Some examples are: trainings for teachers and youth workers, internships, European Voluntary Service and youth exchanges. Read entire post »

Clothing library at Elsas Hus

Posted in: Fun things! on 18 April, 2017 by Sacha

Recently I discovered a new concept in Linköping that I am very excited about. I already knew of its existence for a while, but I had not yet found the time/courage to go and check it out. However, recently a friend of mine asked whether I would like to join her to go to the clothing library at Elsas Hus (I feel like all I write about recently is Elsas Hus… but they just have a lot of cool projects!). I saw this as a good opportunity to finally check it out and so I joined. It was very cool! There are a lot of different kinds of clothes in different sizes. As a person who loves second-hand shopping, this is an amazing concept. You can borrow up to four items per month, and after that month you can bring them back again and pick out new ones (or re-borrow the ones that you really like!). Previously the membership cost 200kr per year, which was already very cheap. However, recently the board decided that the clothing library will now be free! If you find yourself in Linköping and you like second-hand shopping and/or cheap clothes, then definitely go past the clothing library, which is open on Sundays 12:00-16:00.
