Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Around the World: Sweden

Around the World: Sweden

From the North Pole, we headed over to Sweden. We enjoyed a meal of swedish meatballs, mashed potatoes, lingonberry jam, and peas. We also had some elderflower and lingonberry drinks - yum!

We learned about vikings! We read books and colored a viking boat.

We even made some viking ships and sailed them in the fjords we set up.

After learning about vikings and boats, our study took a different turn and we learned about St. Lucia. We let the girls dress up and serve our fika coffee and treat. The little one added a few, um, additions to her St. Lucia outfit. ๐Ÿ˜‚

For our fika, we had tea (itโ€™s traditionally coffee), and some little tarts with lingonberry jam. Yum!

I think itโ€™s safe to say we all loved Sweden! Stay tuned for our next stop!
