"MY" Swedish Adventure ~ Förbereda ~ Post 1

It has been a couple years since I first auditioned for the Swedish television show, "Great Swedish Adventure." I did not make the final cut, which was disappointing to say the least. I wrote a series of posts about that adventure starting March 2011. You can find the links to these on the right side of this blog. 

From the time I was cut I believed I was going to make my own Swedish Aventure! 


Although time has passed, this goal has never been forgotten. My plan? I am going to Sweden this year! Yes, that is right, I am planning on going THIS YEAR! I can hardly wait!

I haven't been blogging much, mostly because I don't seem to find the time. I have made some changes this year so I am not quite as busy. Even though I won't be as busy with so many different things, I will be busy planning and focusing most of this year on my trip. 

So, because of this strong focus, I decided to start another series, this time called: "My" Swedish Adventure! 

There will be three sections to this series. The first section will be "Förbereda" which means "preparing." Just as it sounds, I will blog about my preparations and the time leading up to this trip.  

The second section will be titled "Slutligen, Sverige!" "Finally, Sweden!" I am excited to share my adventures with you, especially when I finally do reach Sweden!

The final section, "Reflektioner" will be my reflections of "My Swedish Adventure!" I know I won't be able to "do it all" but I hope to give some wonderful reflections on the trip, remark on what worked and what didn't as well as updates on what I would do if I were to plan a second visit.

I hope you will enjoy this journey with me! Please don't hesitate to leave comments regarding your thoughts and ideas as I go along. They just may help make my journey even better!


Thanks for stopping by! 

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
