I spent every single day of vacation I got this year on a 10 days vacation in Sweden ending last week. It was nice, and it has been 8 years or so since I last visited Sweden in the autumn. The general image of Swedish autumn is that it is cold, dark, and rainy. That is how it started, but there were some nice days too.

One good thing about going there in October is that no one is on vacation in October, so you can find everyone you know. I usually go in the summer, since that is the best time to visit Sweden, but then lots of people are on vacation and you cannot find them.
