Pretend to be Nordic at Home
You may have had to put your travel plans on hold for now. But that does not mean you can’t enjoy some Nordic culture. Here are a few suggestions that will keep up your enthusiasm for all things Nordic. Now you can pretend to be Nordic at home, at least until things are back to normal.
Pick up Nordic cooking: Here are some recipes to get you started BBC/Nordic/Food.
If you can’t cook, won’t cook, buy some Nordic sweets and treats from the Scandinavian Kitchen or Totally SwedishBinge on Nordic TV series: Skam, Borgen, the Bridge, the Killing Klovn, Check the Internet Movie Database for a list of the best ones
Make yourself a playlist with Nordic music only: A-ha, ABBA, Björk, browse Spotify for some super-duper playlists.
Make your home more Scandinavian: Keep it simple, declutter, take good care of your plants, get wooden furniture and warm textiles, let the light in, buy a cheese cutter and make everyone take their shoes off.
For the more extreme ones: Get green and purple lightbulbs, create your own Northern Lights show.
Close the bathroom window, cover the door gap with a towel, leave the hot water running, you now have your own private Sauna.
So if you’re staying home for the time being, take off your shoes! (seriously, take them off) brew some strong filter coffee, light a few candles and make your life hyggelig. Plan for the future: You won’t have to stay home forever. But in the meantime, you can browse our trips and plan future holidays!0
