If you ever find yourself in Sweden for a student party, make sure you know what you are getting yourself into.
Perfectly gorgeous, blond people living in their perfectly organized, rich country need to spice things up from time to time (or from weekend to weekend). So…
if this seems flawless to you do not expect it to end so perfectly!
Here is what to do so you party like a Swede:
#1 Know that alcohol is not easily accessible: you can only get alcohol in one specialized store and if you happen to find yourself in a small city, there will be only one of these that will be deserted soon before the closing. So make sure you get there on time.
#2 Start your “night” during the day: Swedes start pregaming surprisingly early so make sure you are on time, you don’t want to fall behind in drinking.
#3 Bring your own drinks, even when invited to someone else’s house. No, these drinks are not to be shared; you will have them for yourself.
#4 Make sure your socks are presentable, cuz you will have to take off your shoes.
#5 Drink! Drink! Drink!
#6 When finally in a club, fall down couple of times, it will be appreciated.
#7 Dance with anyone and everyone, make new friends, become surprisingly close and tell them your story. Further, flirt, make out etc…
#8 Try to make it home somehow
#9 Wake up and erase everything from your memory, avoid and do not say hi to any of your new “friends”. If you are really curious ask your real friends how you got home!
Please note that it takes a while to get used to partying and getting Swedish drunk. Therefore, newcomers, we encourage you to be careful, learn from the wildest party people, and master you drinking skills gradually!
