One of the wonderful things I took away from my trip to Sweden and Norway is a reminder to get back to your roots as a human being. To enjoy the simple things and embrace the beauty of nature. I love the swedish trandition of Fika. Fika dates are where Swedish people take a coffee or tea break and enjoy it with something sweet with friends and family anytime of the day. They love to come together as a family or amongst friends and cook a delicious meal together and enjoy it outside (during the summer at least). It is a breath of fresh air considering the ubiquitous American way of eating out all the time. Traveling is amazing and I can't imagine my life without it. We all live in our own little bubble but to step out of your comfort zone and embrace the unknown is certainly worth doing. Yes, things may not go as expected or you're jet lagged like crazy or maybe you're tired of dragging that rolling luggage on cobblestones but despite any inconveniences traveling allows you to grow and brings inspiration when you need it most.
