It’s my second time spending a whole winter here in Stockholm and this time I can readily say: bring it on cold weather!
Besides getting a proper pair of snow boots, a winter coat and a blanket-sized scarf, there were other almost unexpected bumps to take care of.
Thing is, it had been a long time since I experienced a harsh winter back in Belgium and here in Sweden, as much as I hate to remind myself, temperatures can go as low as -20 Celsius – probably even lower.
That’s when I had to start taking measures to aid the itchy sensation I started having primarily on my face (read: forehead). It could become so annoying as to prevent me from wearing a hat which, trust me, with such temperatures you definitely want to wear.
