A Merry Swedish Christmas

Swedish Christmas blondes

Have yourself a very Merry Swedish Christmas! Yes, I’m busy writing up the nitty-gritty of the Iron Curtain and all the details of the #ironroute project but let’s not forget where I was just before that!

Can sweet hearts, scented soap and cosy candles  tell you everything about a country? Of course not. Can they warm you with simple Christmas cheer? Of course! So, sit back, relax and enjoy – have a very merry Swedish Christmas! I’ll be back with #ironroute seriousness soon enough…

Disclosure – I went to Skäne as a guest of Visit Sweden. All views, words and fika tastings are all my own. As usual…And I wouldn’t write about anything here unless I thought it would be useful and interesting. Otherwise, well, what’s the point?

    I love these photos. So cheery! They make me want to go (even more) to Sweden!

    Yep, there’s such a feel-good factor to their decorations. Hearts and warmth everywhere. I loved it.

    These are absolutely gorgeous photos, Abi. I really want to visit the Christmas markets some year, though I am a bit curious about the funky boxer shorts.

      Ha! Aren’t they great? It seemed such a curious mix…Sweet hearts and sugar combined with some very racy Christmas clothes…Those boxers were just the start!

    The warm lights and cheery reds make for a magical wintry scene and just the idea of glögg med pepparkakor puts me in a festive holiday mood! Not too sure about those undies, though :-)
    Very nice photos.

      No…those undies clash two very different ideas in my mind! The glogg remains great, though ;-)
