I'm now back in Sweden again and starting the Christmas celebrations! My companions and I took a trip to Västervik and boarded a boat to the island of Idö. Onboard the boat M/S Tjust we were welcomed by hot, traditional Swedish glögg (mulled wine). The boat took us out from the harbour and to a restaurant on the island. It was very, very cold as you can see by the snow on the window! The hot glögg was very, very inviting! Once we got to the restaurant we had to choose drinks, I remembered the beer in Frankfurt, so I chose the smallest bottle I could possibly find. This bottle had O.P Anderson in it ... um 40% alc. snaps, spiced with caraway, aniseed and fennelseed. I decided that maybe this wasn't for me either! The food was really, really lovely, the different herrings and all the other hot food. Really nice after the cold journey by boat! It's getting so close to Christmas now, hurrah! More in a moment!
