So I often go on many rants about how awesome it is to be Swedish; but I never seem to highlight a negative aspect. Please see attached images as proof.

Why so serious of a sunburn? Well the weather was 30°C and without a cloud in the sky, I embarked on a weekend of tennis training involving drop ins, organized hits, and all around fun in the sun. My desperate attempt at getting back to my former level, includes many hours on the courts, busting my ass and feeling the burn.

Quite literally. My skin is the fairest of anyone I’ve ever met, and I burn within minutes. Again, see above. This is one of the negative aspects to being Swedish…

At least I’ve got bitchin’ tan lines! I love being pasty white, so why do I have to have colour at all? 🙁
