Although I grew up in the north of Sweden, the Gothenburg cold is hard to stand. -8°c here feels almost as cold as -30°c in Luleå (close to the Arctic Circle). I almost don't want to go out these days, but it's ok because I have so much work to do and being indoors when it's freezing cold outside is special.
Now I do have to go out though, because I'm meeting friends for beer at the local pub and it'll be so much fun. I'm prepared with salopettes, curling boots, duffle coat, thick mittens and a beret! Cheers!
