Viking women reveal all…allegedly!

Viking Woman 

There are two questions I am constantly asked about Sweden

1) How cold is it?

and

2) What are the women like?

I have to say in answer to question one, I have only really felt cold on one occasion since I have been here. I am refusing to wear gloves and my North Face arctic coat until its really cold.

In answer to Q2? Thats not the sort of question a gentleman usually answers, especially when he knows there are some Swedish females who read this blog. I do think that after reading what Viking women really wore  (nothing like the above pic apparently) that  the Swedish women should go back to Viking tradition a bit more and wear the fashions of their female ancestors…. 

Unfortunately I have had to remove Montchans blog from the North, it appears her blog has been deleted which is a shame as it was an enjoyable read, hopefully she will be back soon.

Todays Swedish Word of the day is kläder -clothing
