So far, Sweden hasn’t had its best summer ever this year. In fact, the average temperature have beer far lower than normal, and we’ve had lots of cloudy and even rainy days. More people than ever have chosen to spend their vacation abroad, and the travel agencies in Sweden are all enjoying record sales.
I haven’t been bathing much at all. I love to go swimming, and in Gothenburg I have easy access to both lakes and the ocean, so usually that’s one of my favorite summer activities. This year, however, I haven’t been bathing in the ocean since I went for a naked swim on midsommarafton.
Until yesterday, that is. Yesterday I braved the low water temperatures and went with a few friends to the sea and had a refreshingly cool bath. I really look forward to the hot springs of Budapest in a few days’ time.
