Each Scandi country is unique in its own right, but for the purposes of this post I’m joining them together, and choosing my five top experiences in super Scandinavia.
The may look cute but you might want to keep your distance...
You know the feeling, there you are, strolling through the character filled streets of a beautiful European city on your much anticipated weekend city break, when, all of a sudden, you’re faced with the unsightly view of a drunken stag, complete with Borat mankini, in all his, erm, ungroomed, masculine glory.
