Enjoyed my stay at Per's place. Per is very welcoming and extended great hospitality including preparing meals, providing helpful tips and directions to places. We had good discussion on topics of mutual interests including automotive trends, environment and energy conservation. He also drove me (actually, let me drive his Nissan Leaf) to the airport on Sunday morning as train schedule was not coinciding with my departure time. The room was comfortable & clean. The apartment is located quite far from city center so best just for night stay and then go out spend the whole day exploring the city. On the other hand, it is just 5 mins train ride to Arlanda airport and 5 mins walk to the train station. If I happen to visit stocholm again, I'd definitely prefer to stay at Per's palce.

Per was super hospitable and very easy to communicate with. He was polite, kind, and generous enough to offer me breakfast and dinner. His family, Safi and Ellie, are so polite and respectful. The area is a 5 minute walk from the trains that take you to central Stockholm and the airport.

Per was a wonderful conversation and person. Place was easy to find and get to, only five mins from the train. Kept in close contact the whole time and made a great breakfast! Would recommend if you want both the quite suburb and easy access to the city by train.

I cant' t stay there.

Response from Per:
I never got a reply why? My room mate, a refugee from Afghanistan, is a most gentle and very kind person. He greeted Sandro by offering him tea or coffee. But Sandro just left. I was away working and arrived later. Sandro then confirmed by SMS that he would not be staying with me. No reason was given.

Staying with Per was exceptional! I felt welcome and comfortable from the moment I stepped inside. Per and Safi are both very sweet, interesting and engaging people. The sleeping space is cozy, the bed is comfortable, and Per made me a delicious warm breakfast in the morning. If I have the pleasure of returning to Knivsta, I would choose to stay here again. Thank you so much!

If Greenland keeps melting and looses all its glaciers sea-levels will rise 7 METERS all over the world. My feeling is that the vast majority of the people on this planet has not yet understood how serious the situation is.
