Opening Sweden - FIKA
In continuation of my Swedish stories today I'll tell you about "Fika") What does that mean?
Our evenings we spent in favorite pubs. One day we had a chance to talk with the waitress, who told us about the concept of "Fika". Finally, a purely Swedish jargon))) "Fika" means Swedish tradition to make a break from work for a cup of coffee. Swedes organize such a break every two hours and it takes no more than 15 minutes. "Fika" is often carried out with colleagues, friends or family. It is sometimes accompanied with sweets, cookies or buns. Nowadays, it is not just a coffee break, but any break in general. Seems to be similar to siesta.
Have more "Fika" breaks, friends, relax and be happy!
Always with gratitude and love,
