Swedish girls seem to be the objects of legends. In the minds of most, they are the ultimate when it comes to beauty and they are highly sought after, so much to the point of becoming a cliche’.
After spending a considerable amount of time in the Scandinavian region, I have come to this conclusion:
- The stories are true and I’m still trying to wipe the smile off my face
My traveling buddies and I all decided that Sweden should no longer be called “Sweden”. It shall henceforth be known as “When Supermodels Work At 7-11.”
Here’s the kicker:
I’m not surprised at the beauty but I’m blown away at the sheer AMOUNT of women. The ratio of girls to guys has got to be 2:1, 3:1 or higher.
As a single guy traveler, this is without a doubt a HUGE plus.
Although beauty is one thing, can they hold a decent conversation? Are they fun? What are their personalities like?
Just because they’re hot doesn’t mean you want to spend all your time with them just because of that. But this is true anywhere, not just here.
