Last week we opened a “question round” and here are our answers ;)
AnnaLi I’m just wondering what you do for a living. I mean, what’s your job?
Sevda I’m an art director for a swedish fashion company. I’m working on the ideas for a compagne, the shooting and all the way to the final layout.
Philipp I study Interactive Communication and Strategies at Berghs here in Stockholm.
Jennifer Where are the best place for shopping, going out or eat something in Stockholm?
Sevda The best would be to pick up a “People Magazine“. It’s a free magazine and you will find it everywhere. They also did a book full of good tipps. Or just go to Södermalm. It’s like “Schanze” in Hamburg ;)
louiseclara What kind of status got your blog for you? Does it belong to your work or is it really free?
Sevda and Philipp No it’s totaly free! We are just writing and posting things that we really like. That’s also the reason that you don’t find any banner or anything else in that direction on our blog. We both earn money from our jobs or savings in Philipp’s case. ;)
theresa What kind of camera are you using and what kind of program are you using to prepare them?
Philipp We are using a Canon 1000D, Metz-Flash and we have a old trashy Panasonic/Lumiux for snapshots and video. It’s a DMC-FX10.
Sevda Yeah Photoshop. But please don’t ask for the whole way ;) It’s allways different ;) If you want to try something, just google for “photoshop tutorials”. I’m sure that you find some good ones.
AnnaWhat are your plans for the future? Are you staying in sweden for a longer time, kids, house or family?
Sevda Oh hard to say! ;) We are no long term planners ;) House would be nice and it’s really cheap in sweden, but we don’t know yet.
Anja Would you do it again? Moving to Sweden?
Sevda Whoa, that’s a hard one. Hmm, I don’t know. Germany is a nice country and you recognize it really quickly when you are in a different country. Sweden is really much different then I thought. It’s not like all germans think ;) Sometimes it feels a bit like Russia (Sorry Sweden ;)) It would be so nice to have a big selection of products. ;) You feel really often that Sweden only has about 9 million people. And then I miss international news, the real journalism! But jobwise it is so much better in sweden and I met a few really nice people. But we are here now, so we shouldn’t think about if we’d do it again ;)
sylvie Why did you move to Sweden and what do you miss? And: How did you get a payable appartment?
Philipp I was raised in Sweden and the final-call came when I got a scholarship for the school I am attending now. The other thing is that Sevda always wanted to live abroad.
Sevda and Philipp And oooohhhhh, we don’t have a payable appartment ;) That’s not possible in Stockholm. You have to buy one. We put a picture and our details onto “Blocket” and sent everyone who had an appartement our link. Finally we got a few we could choose from, but the prices are nothing compared to Hamburg or Cologne.
We miss our friends, long nights on St. Pauli, Astra beer, different cultures, rote Schleife, Lohnfortzahlung im Krankheitsfall, international news, Currywurst, Linsensuppe, that it doesn’t matter how you look like, to be in the middle of Europe, european thinking, the Euro etc.
Nikita I miss the Fleischer, Planten & Bloomen, the Elbe and my best friend Leonie!
And by the way: “Ab heute werden die Tage wieder länger, yeah!”
