I also went to visit a storage facility. I explained my needs to them and while I liked the people, I really didn't like the location. It was hard to find, which means that in the event of an emergency, if I need family to get to my things, they would barely know where to go. But I won't count them out yet.
I brought several guidebooks on Sweden. I purchased one on Sweden in general, one of Stockholm in particular, one on Scandanavia, and one on Swedish culture. They will be good reads to provide me with some important preparation.
Finally, I set up a phone call to speak to another American expatriate in IBM Sweden because I think that they'll be able to provide me a lot of assistance regarding what things I need to take into account.
Well, I have to go now...the work continues in terms of throwing out things, organising and deciding what will stay and what will go, and making a ton of other arrangements.
