You got a lot of stuff to do before you get on that plane to Sweden and I’m sure the last thing you want to be doing is sitting on the tarmac when you remember you’ve forgotten something. Better to get all of the important things out of the way while your mind is still in the States so let’s go over a couple of the more important items.

- Did you contact the postal carrier? Make sure you do this sooner rather than later. You don’t want your mail stacking up. That’s a clear indication to any burglars that your home is up for grabs. If you’re really paranoid about the welfare of your home, you can check out this site quortek.com for pretty much anything you ever wanted to know about home security systems.

- Do you know some of the phrases? You don’t need to be an expert. Might be nice to know how to ask for the bathroom in Swedish or where the nearest US embassy is. You only need to know enough to move about unhindered.

- Do you have a money belt? These are incredibly handy at keeping your money safe. Tourists are often the target of pickpockets, doesn’t matter where you go.
