I just wanted to take a moment and give a little insight on some Swedish tradition.
Fika is Swedish for coffee break. Fika for Swede’s is more about socializing. Fika is usually accompanied by Sweet delicacies and coffee however you choose to drink yours, I prefer mine black! In addition coffee has some great benefits, such as protecting against Parkinson’s disease, type 2 diabetes and liver disease, including liver cancer. Coffee also appears to improve cognitive function and decrease the risk of depression. Currently where we are staying we don’t have a coffee maker, so we have being making good ol’ cowboy coffee with a filter and honestly its works pretty damn well.
Of course Fika doesn’t only have to be celebrated by Swedes so go on and get your fika on!
