Flee markets, they’re everywhere

July 28 – Quick post
Today Olle took us to flee markets. So what about the fleemarkets in Sweden? They really are e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e. Swedish people like to go to flee markets (Loppis in Swedish) and it’s something typically Swedish, but it depends on the type of person of course. For some people it’s like stopping by at the supermarket.
Gävle, the city where we stayed, has 80.000 inhabitants and 8+ fleemarkets. Not just small ones, no also huge ones! Just follow the ‘loppis’ signs on the road and you’ll get there.

Today was also the last day at our host family. SO we took some photos of the house and gave presents from our country to our host parents.
I brought a basket with me, filled with typical Dutch things, from erwtensoep (pea soup) to stroopwafels (caramel waffels). My basket was packed with all kinds of stuff and it weighed like 4 kilos! That’s why my luggage was so heavy.
Well, they really liked it and I was glad they were happy.

Time to pack my bags again..
