How to escape an avalanche on skis...

Perhaps like doing a backflip over it, as this Swede demonstrates? He rode that baby like a wave.

Pretty impressive.

World Championships in Naked Luge

Last week, we reported on the Norwegian World championship in Topless Tobogganing.  It seems we were not aware of this slightly more popular event in Germany:  World Championship in Naked Luge.

This year, swedish male supermodel Marcus Schenkenberg took part and finished fifth.

Go Marcus.

Marcus is the one to the right.  No, not him, the other one - the one with the non wobbly bits.

World Championship in Topless Tobogganing


Consider yourself pretty good at tobogganing?  Well, then, how about doing it topless?

That's how they do it in Northern Norway.  Those tough vikings.

In Laukvik, Lofoten (inhabitants 450), you can enter this prestigious competition and get yoru chance of glory as you slide down the hill with your boobies out.  There is a category for men, one for women and one for the best and winter body.

For more information, click here for the home page

The Championship takes place on 17th March 2012. Details on home page on how to enter and where to stay.  We promise, should you decide to enter and represent England, to spondor your, eh, underpants.

The photos here are from last year's competition. 

We're considering entering in Topless Smorgasboarding for next year's winter olympics.

Tops3Sweden's entry?

Laurvik's Mayor?

KIKK the ball around - fancy playing some footie?

Did you know our Anna is a super duper footie player?  Well, she is.  She played much higher level than all of our guys here put together.   In fact, most of our gals at SK are into football, which is why we were so happy to find out that there is, in fact, a Scandinavian Women's Football Team here in London.  They are called KIKK and they are looking for players.

So, if you are of the Scandinavian female kind and you enjoy kicking a ball around (and you're good at it too), get in touch with them.  For all of you who just fancy joining in the support, get in touch also:  it is much nicer to play with people on the sidelines cheering you on.

You can read much more about the ladies here

Come on, Japan... Move. You're in our way.

Cue the army of "Roligans" (They're still called that, really?).  Cue crates of Tuborg, pallets of hot dogs and cue abuse of your wife's lipstick used to paint flags on your cheeks:  Now is the time to stand and be counted.  Denmark needs a win in South Africa in order to continue in the World Cup.

Tomorrow, 24th June at 19:30, Denmark will take on the mighty Japan.  Will they buckle under the pressure and perform a bit like Wayne Rooney on a wet Wednesday?  Or will we finally be able to stop talking about glory days of 1992, Schmeichel and the Laudrup Bros?

Here are some match statistics for you:

  • Last time we met - and the only time - was in 1971. Denmark won 3-2.
  • Japan has scored only 9 goals in 12 WC games
  • Denmark is currently ranked world no 36, Japan no 45. Don't worry, this means very little: England is currently ranked as number 8. Well, they are.

The Danish press is surprisingly low on banter for this game, choosing instead to focus on Wozniacki who's the Dane at Wimbledon.  Well, it rarely happens we're any good at Tennis. Or football.  Or skiing.  Actually, we're only really good at handball when it boils down to it.

Watch the game tomorrow at the Sports Bar in Haymarket (Tickets are £5 and for that you get a spot in the bar as well as a Carlsberg).  You can also watch it with the other Danes at Zoo Bar via www.scandinavianparty.com - buy tickets online.

Yes, we stock flags, Tuborg and hotdogs.  Buckets of encouragement is added free with any purchase.

_MG_1927 Stockholm Culture Festival "Carnival"

All good things come to an end and so it was time for us to leave. Following the grand finale of the Culture Festival on Saturday night, we awoke to the pouring rain (being British I believe it is my duty to always talk about the weather) and the knowledge that team GB were third in the Olympic medals table. Go team GB!

On reflection, we think Sweden has the answer to London's knife crime problem - Swedish female police officers; that is if the two we saw are a good representation. Gone would be the thoughts of knifes, in the hope of being searched thoroughly by a female police officer!

Our final day took us to Stockholm's City Museum where we learnt about the city's "filth" and "prohibition" - even chocolate was banned and servants could be jailed for wearing silk! The horror!

As we stocked up on choolate with Daim (no longer prohibited), Stimorol chewing gum and Swedish literature, the call came for us to reluctantly catch our flight. I did try to take SK to new heights of the mile high club (not that one!) and serve tea in my SK t-shirt, but was not successful. I think I lacked the lucky SK mug, so will try again next time. In retaliation I ripped a page out of SAS's 'Scanorama' magazine, to help plan my next holiday to Sweden. If I were to only travel to Sweden for my annual holiday every year, I would be very happy.

Until next time....

Go Sweden

We're all going a bit football mad at Scandi Kitchen.  Even the Danes are wearing blue and yellow - mind you, only because we failed to qualify for the championship ourselves.  Go Sweden, we say.  First game is on 10th June.
