    Christian Lapper! Love this article.

    This just made me realize how much I love living in Malmo, and how grateful I am to be able to be here. Everything is at 15min walking from me, going to work, doing groceries, enjoying activities with friends and the locals, it's amazing!

    Christian, you've just given me heimwee :-)

    I lived in Amsterdam some 25 years ago and something that made it quite cozy from what I remember is the variety of boutiques, restaurants and cafes, small art galleries and antiquarians, that give Amsterdam and other cities their unique character. This contrasts the chain concept stores repeated over and over again that are perhaps more common in other cities and make them, arguably, more anonymous. Agree?

    @... Totally! Endless chain stores suck the character out of cities. However, when comparing to the UK, I think it's the lack of chain restaurants here that I most enjoy. There's something slightly soul-destroying about being served up the exact same dish on every high street.
