    I had the chance to go to Sweden to live a few years back near Gristlehamn,wish id gone now.Thats the part of Sweden id like to go to live,being an area of lakes and islands.I like the Swedish attitude and the freedom to roam and camp in the wilderness so long as you do it responsibly and respectfully.
    The only thing that would put me off now is the change in immigration policy in Sweden and the imminent changes with Britain and EU due to Brexit.I have an ex army friend who has lived in Sweden several years and has been denied citizenship so when his employment contract finished he had to return to UK which he was not happy about.Sweden is one of the few countries i would definitely move to but that kind of uncertainty bothers me.
    I absolutely HATE the immigration policy now.

    What do you need to register a vehicle in Sweden?
    For instance here we need insurance, an MOT and road tax.
    You have to have a certain minimum level of insurance, you have to pay tax on the car and the car has to pass the yearly inspeciton.

    I forgot to ask: what's a MOT?

    They sound great! where can I get some?

    I have considered moving over there, I guess my windows of opportunity is about to run out.
    If I could get more info on which specific candy this is referring to, I'll send you some if you want me to. :-)
    Zambaku, do you know? Is it Turkisk peppar?

    The salty candies can be found everywhere in Sweden, just visit any random food store and they will have them. Such as ICA or Konsum.

    The name of the salty licorice can be many, there are many types, here are some pictures:

    Most Swedes know enough english to communicate with without trouble, but they might use some wrong words. Like if you ask them if they are interested in something you can hear "Sorry, I'm not interesting" XD

    Land can be expensive in Sweden, it depends on the location really. But you can find some friendly farmers that sell you a bit of forest land for cheap. General rule of thumb: Stay away from the area around Stockholm if your looking for cheap stuff =)

    I don't really know what you need to register a vehicle in Sweden since I don't own any vehicles, sorry.

    MOT (Ministry Of Transport) test is an obligatory safety yearly test, cars have it from three years and HGVs (over 3500 Kg) have it from the first year. The test is performed at government licensed stations (cars) or DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) for HGVs.
    The test covers lights, indicators (turn signal), steering, brakes, tyres, emissions and body condition.

    Ah! Yes, that's what I meant too, with "yearly inspection". :-)
