Leading up to the across the globe move, there’s quite a lot playing on Randy’s mind.
“I understand that the first couple of months it is going to be challenging because there is a lot to adjust to... After that, I can start to enjoy all the things in Sweden.”
Randy lands in Stockholm next week and is looking forward to a busy first few days.
