With the cold, dark, windy days here in Gotland, I’ve been indulging in the Swedish tradition of fika! Fika is basically a coffee break during your day, where you sit down with friends, co-workers, or family and indulge in a hot cup of tea or coffee and something sweet. It generally happens around 11 am and 3pm. The cafes and coffee shops here are particularly cozy. There are always fresh flowers and plants, lanterns outside, and candles everywhere! Fresh cinnamon rolls and pastries are displayed beautifully of course.
