The Life of a Swedish Student


Michael Peyron is one of the first friends I made here in Sweden, because he worked with KTH's welcome committee for international exchange students.  He is around the same age as me and has been a really fun guy to be around!  We usually study together or go out to the many orchestral or jazz concerts hosted in Stockholm.

*Also a quick note: Michael is a very goofy guy...  it was very difficult just getting photos of him, much less ones where he is being serious!

What is your full name?:

My name is Michael Peyron.


Where do you live? What is your house like?:

I live in Ropsten, which is a cape located at the eastern part of Stockholm, Sweden. I live in an apartment with my dad. I do have one sister, but she currently lives in London.

What is your family like?:

They are very fun to be around. I like to watch movies with my dad (who is a really good chef, by the way!) 

How do you get around?:

I use Storstockholms lokaltrafik (SL), Stockholm's municipal train and bus company. I have my license, but I don't drive very often because I don't like to drive.

(*My note: gas prices in Sweden are also very expensive compared to those in America, at around $5.80/gallon!)
