Episode Info:

Florence Wetzel is an American who fell in love with Sweden. Despite traveling to Sweden on several occasions she delayed moving there. In this episode, we discuss what it's like to have obligations that delay certain decisions in your life. In Florence's case, she returned to Jersey to care for her sick mother.

After her mother passed, she knew it was time to make her way back. Although she hadn't traveled for long periods in quite some time, she didn't allow her fears to stifle her. She created a plan and dedicated herself to see it through.

The New Jersey native now lives between the USA and Sweden, spending three months in each country. However, her long-term vision is fixed on her Scandinavian part-time home; she's currently studying Swedish, with a view to applying her skills as an author to the language.

The result was Wetzel's debut book released in Sweden: The Grand Man: A Scandinavian Thriller. It's a detective novel about a journalist who gets drawn into the mysteries of both Palme's assassination and Larsson's lost manuscript and is set against the backdrop of the Swedish jazz scene.

In this episode you'll be inspired by the following: 1. If you want to move abroad, you can start right where you are by taking lessons in your home country and begin to build a network in the country you want to move to. 2. Don't take yourself too seriously. 3. It's never too late.
