Today, my mom booked a family trip to Sweden. This would be great, if she hadn't asked me to tell our former German exchange student that we were coming to visit her in Germany. She was thrilled. Now I have to be the one to let her down. FML

Yeah because any one can just get up and take a trip to another country on a dime

#50 yes. EU. Also it's not that far.

50, a quick and cheap train ride is all they'd need to see one another. It's relatively easy to visit multiple countries when in Europe, it just takes time.

I don't think the mother actually mixed up germany with sweden, but more likely she just changed plans were to go on holiday.

This post gave me ebola

Ah, true. When I first read it I took it as the mom thinking Sweden and Germany were the same.

11- It was sarcasm and mimicry, my sweet summer child.

My sweet summer child? What u just call me?

#42, i believe it's a Game of Thrones reference where summer lasts a lot longer than it does in our world. So a child that was born during the summer where its nice and peaceful, unlike their brutal winter, is sometimes called a "summer child." (Their summer can last multiple years). Or at least that's what i understood. TL;DR Its pretty much like saying you're innocent

That's disappointing, but you can always visit again another time, or try to make a side trip while you're in Sweden. I'm an exchange student now so I know how it feels to have friends in other parts of the world :)

See if it may be possible for her to come with you guys to Sweden? Shot in the dark but it's the only thing I can think of.

Ouch! I'm sorry for you and the former exchange student, OP. Maybe a halfway point could be arranged without major disappointment?

Why'd they tell her that, that's just pure dumb, damn.

There's only Denmark between Sweden and Germany so like 3-4h

Three to four hours is just from border to border. Even from the northern part of Germany like Hamburg or Berlin it's easily 10 or 12 hours to Stockholm and much more to the northern part of Sweden where you can see the midnight sun, which is one of the most common reasons to visit Sweden at this time of the year.

What midnight sun? The sun don't rise at all in the north this time of year ^^

#25 Shouldn't it be the Northern Lights? The midnight sun occurs during summertime. Like #45 said, the sun rises very little if at all in the northern parts of Sweden during winter.

Sorry, I thought about the aurora and in a hurry I wrote midnight sun. Of course the midnight sun would be visible in summer.
