what is that scandinavian feeling?

To me it is a lot of things but at the same time hard to explain, and I guess that’s why it is so fascinating and deep in my heart. I have now lived away from Scandinavia for over 8 years, but for some reason, the feeling is stronger than ever. It is not about location or origin but simply a mix of coziness & calm. It is a warm atmosphere that invites you in and makes you feel welcome but at the same time a cool freshness that hits you like a winter breeze. It is wrapping yourself up in a nice comfy blanket with a hot drink and a cinnamon bun. It is simplicity and minimalism, focusing on the little things in life. It is wooden houses, reindeers, knitted jumpers, fjords & mountains, hygge..
Whether you are from Scandinavia or just have a nordic state of mind, I’d love to see what you think.
