Travel Sweden and carry a map of Sweden with you and take your time to chat with the locals. They are very warm and receptive people with a strange love of their country and language. The only barrier that can come between you and the people is the language barrier factor. To avoid this ask your tour agency to provide you with a bilingual tour guide who can converse in both English and Swedish.
