Remember these photos back on December 21st (on my Birthday actally)? We've had some more snow since then…
Sun! And Starbucks! Wille's a happy camper. Sara, a longtime reader and fellow Starbucks fan sent Wille this cool mug from the States. Wille is over the moon! Starbucks actually opened it's first coffee shop at the international airport here in Stockholm last week. You need a ticket abroad though because it's past security.
Tender moments between Mini and Bonus are rare, they are usually in disagreement about most things. I caught them getting along for several minutes on Monday though. That was the day I couldn't get to work due to the cold weather; -22 C/ -7.6F.
Speaking of housekeeping, there were some really fun and useful comments to the hotel toiletries post the other day and also tipping came up. Do you tip?
Us Swedes are horrible tippers and I'm sure hotel staff abroad are not happy with us staying in their hotels. There's
not a tipping culture over here. We're used to people getting decent pay I
guess. Over here it's norm to tip at restaurants and in taxis but that's basically it. I also tip our hairdressers (who always look really surprised and say it's really not necessary, but I was brought up to) and when I'm abroad I do tip at hotels (always at the end of my
stay and probably not enough) and whenever's the norm there. When in Rome, you know, but what's the deal where you are?
