Depending on where in Sweden your "friend" lives, he might need a *lot*
of persuasion :o
Luleå is right up in the very north of Sweden, for me on the west coast
of Sweden (Gothenburg) it is a 1250 km drive one way, i.e. a two-day
trip or 14 hours of non-stop driving in one day. Sweden is a country
with very long distances.
