Thank you! The housewarming will be in about three weeks.

I'm a senior lecturer at the Uppsala University Campus Gotland. My appointment there is part-time, but I'm planning to increase my contribution from about 50% to 66%. We got tired of paying exorbitant rents and decided to buy a place that we could rent out ourselves in the summers. Gotland is sort of the Hawaii of Sweden, a hugely popular tourist destination, and just about everyone on the island who owns real estate rents it out to visitors if they can.
