Happy Midsummer!

Happy Midsummer!

If you are working with Sweden, today you are likely to get no answers to your emails, or very short ones. Today is one of the most cheerful days of the year in Sweden where we celebrate with raising and dancing around a maypole.  The typical menu would include the year’s first potatoes, herring, snaps and strawberries. Yummie!

Working with many partners from different countries means many different holiday periods so summer can be quite a slow period to work in European projects… At the same time, June and early July is also the time to finish up everything for the first half of the year. Tricky…

I’m wishing you all a nice weekend!
