Getting Summer Vibes!

For me, one sign of early summer is when we start fixing the boat. I love the sea and sailing, all the nice memories just start popping up:) The whole family helps, a real get-togethers – So Nice! What can then be more suitable than to take a break and enjoy the sun while indulging a Fika 😊

What is “Fika”?

A fika can take place at home, in a café or at work, drinking a coffee or tea often accompanied with some delicious buns, cookies or pastries. It is more than just a coffee break, it is a reason for meeting up regardless of time, place or occasion. ”Fika” is a huge tradition and social phenomenon in Sweden. When visiting or moving to Sweden it will surprise you how often people use the word and its meaning.  Think of it, how great is that word, a reason for indulging fabulous treats and enjoying someone else’s company. Learn the word and spread the meaning!! – Swedes LOVE it and so will you!!!😉
