Just the other day we went to IKEA and that was when I realized how much I missed home and Sweden. Walking around in IKEA was a little bit nostalgic because everything is the same! The layout of the store, the furniture’s and the food looks like home.
Everything is also written in Swedish, for a second I actually forgot I was in Australia. Best part of the daytrip to “little Sweden” was the food section. They had Swedish candy! Not only that but also Swedish food like the meatballs and “flädersaft” (elderberry juice). Walking around there and seeing the furniture’s that I have back home made me a little bit homesick.
I have to say that I was impressed by how IKEA has marketed Sweden; even the books on the bookshelves were Swedish! A very cute detail that I, as a swede, appreciated.
