Sweden was my second to last stop on a 7 month trip before I made it home to California. It was June and the sun almost never went down. You quickly learn that the Scandinavians rarely ever stay inside during the summer. If there is any excuse to do something outside in the sun they will be there. Midsummer is one of the biggest holidays of the year, and everyone gets into the spirit. But once again due to bad planning I booked my ticket to depart Sweden the day before midsummer began, so I missed all the fun.

GO: Head over to the Karlsson’s Garage for some authentic Swedish meatballs, and you are brave try the 4 Black’s.
