"Accepting one's fate..." Göteborg Local Custom Tip by Todd64

Göteborg Local Customs: 43 reviews and 33 photos


One thing to remember is that, except for in certain Opera's, the Vikings never wore helmets such as these. They actually wore more of a skull cap with some sort of partial face shield. I mean really,...would you run screaming for your life in the opposite direction if a hoard of these 'horny' beauties were coming at you full speed? I'd probably just strip down and welcome them with open arms. So remember; unless you want to spend every night here alone, leave that fuzzy blue and yellow fleece Viking hat you bought at the Duty Free in your backpack. The only people who think that it looks cool are the clowns who manufactured it, and they're 5000 miles away in Asia.
Oh, one more thing. Thanx to fellow VT member Maline's passport quote, I'm reminded that the phrase: "Don't mess with me" is VERY IMPORTANT to heed when/if spoken. Although a funloving people, you can only push a Swede so far, so when/if you ever hear these words, realize that they are now annoyed and you'd better back off mister. Trust me on this. ;o)
