In a couple of weeks I have a trip planned with my wife and her parents to travel to Sweden to visit with extended family. Despite my username It will indeed be my first time there. In fact my wife's family hasn't been back to the homeland for about 20 years and then only while her Dad was on a year long sabbatical. As a barefoot runner.... I am just trying to get a feel for what to expect in terms of the cultural response to running without shoes through the woods and town streets of that country. I think we'll be about 45 minutes outside of Stockholm... with some extended travels into that city as well as into the countryside. Anyway... I don't mind being considered an odd outsider... I just don't want to offend anyone. It has been a while since I frequented this forum... but I remember a couple of members were from that region. Any info will greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. S. Pimp.
