Time for Coffee?

If you’re planning to visit Scandinavia this year with The Mighty Fine Company be prepared for coffee and cake!

Northern Europeans love to ‘fika’ (go out for coffee). In fact they love it so much that, certainly in Sweden, the coffee breaks come thick and fast (typically every two hours). And the great news is that, as well as the liquid refreshment, there’s always cake too! From cinnamon rolls to almond rusks and chocolate cake, if you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’re in for a treat!

So why not settle down with a cup of coffee and a slice of cake and find out all about our holidays in Scandinavia?

Viking Talk

As an isle that has been fought over many times, it is small wonder that many “foreign” words have crept into the English language. Yet, it may come as a surprise that one of the greatest contributors to our language is the Viking race.

The Vikings were renowned for their barbaric behaviour and it is, therefore, quite fitting that many of the words they bequeathed to us are, actually, quite brutal. For example, slaughter derives from the Old Norse word, slatr, meaning butchering and the word, anger, is a slight variation of the Old Norse verb, angra, which means to grieve, vex or distress.
