Rachel and I made it to Sweden for new years. This winter was unusually hot and there was hardly any snow in all of Europe and Sweden was no exception. It sounds strange to say it was disappointingly warm but there was no snow so that is how it was.

The Swedes are the nicest people. The log cabin we rented in Mora on Lake Siljan was owned by the nicest couple called Peir and Anita who ambushed us on our first night and forced us to drink Glogg (Swedish mulled wine) heated and served with raisins and almonds. Yummy.

And we nearly managed to ice skate on a frozen lake but it was raining on the day we tried and no one else was skating and we didn’t want to fall through the ice so we chickened out. Book book book.
