Sweden by the Numbers

with one comment

A few weeks back The Traveler’s Notebook published my piece Sweden by the Numbers, a fun little collection of stats from my last trip to the motherland.

Since I’m feeling a little need for Sweden today, I figured I’d post a quick excerpt:

Bags of Swedish candy brought back in suitcase: 6

Meals that included potatoes: 10

Meals of blood pudding: 4

Days with less than two fika (coffee break): 1

Starbucks sightings: 0

IKEA sightings: 3

Postcards sent with photos of topless sunbathers: 3

Topless sunbather sightings: 0

It’s an interesting exercise to reduce a whole trip down to pure numbers. Whole article is here.
