Nell’s Top Five
…Things I love About Coming Home to Sweden
- Hanging out with my daughter (and son-in-law.) My kid turns 24 this year and she never grew out of hugging her parents. She’s smart and stubborn and funny and wins every argument. Being with her makes my heart sing and fills my soul with joy. I wish I could pack her into my suitcase and bring her home to Malaysia with me.
- FIKA! (If you’re new to my blog and have never heard about fika, read here for an explanation.) If you follow me on Instagram, you have seen lots of fika pictures these last couple weeks. I’ve never met a Swede who doesn’t love fika – it’s in our blood.
Chai latte and a chocolate ball with nib sugar
- Drinking tap water. The tap water in Malaysia is not drinkable, so coming home to Sweden where the water is yummy and of excellent quality is such a luxury. I took it for granted when I lived here. I don’t anymore.
- Swedish candy/snacks. These are my favorites: dill flavored potato chips, and Djungelvrål, super salty licorice.
- Rainbow bubbly!! I’m a huge bubbly lover and I drink it every chance I have. And this bubbly is super yummy, but what I like best about it is that 5% of the price of every sold bottle is donated to Regnbågsfonden, a Swedish LGBTQ charity.
