Spa Review: Upper House Spa

The Upper House Spa is located near Korsvägen in the Gothia Crown Skyscraper in Downtown Gothenburg and I would say that is the most centrally located spa in a big city that I’ve ever visited.

The concept is brilliant. And outdoor pool 50 meters above the ground totally in glas which means that you can see through the bottom of the pool down to the ground and get a pretty amazing view of the city and the nearby amusement park Liseberg. And the indoor spa have huge panorama windows that gives you a beautiful view of the city. I think this part is pretty genius to be honest. The view of the city from above gives you somehow a kind of peacefulness. This is also the newest spa as I know about in Gothenburg.

The interior is clean, modern with thick ropes as hangers for your bathrobe and a lot of black stone and blue pools. It’s modern and beautiful. Just right for a spa in this location.

The spa itself offers three pools, an experience shower with different kinds of waterfalls. An ice bucket to cool of. Two kind of saunas and a Hamam. Which is like a sauna with hot stone benches. And there is also a relax room where you can lay down an drink water and eat fruit. Other spas I’ve visited had more to offer, but for a few hours which where the case for my evening visit here The Upper House Spa where just perfect. Not to much and to to little but just the right amount.

I enjoyed this spa very much and could definitely good back soon again. Highly recommended and among the best spas I’ve been to.

Copenhagen x 2, booked!

I’ve got two trips planned this spring and both are to Copenhagen, Denmark. There tow different kinds of trips and the first one will be already in March and the second one in May. The last one was book just a few hours ago so I’m super happy about it. Especially because I went to bed last night thinking the it would be a while before my next trip.

The first trip will be a family trip in order to celebrate my moms birthday together with my sister, her boyfriend V and off course my wife G. The plan is pretty simple, to hang out with my family to eat good food and have a relaxed and nice weekend. All tips for good restaurants and things to do are more than welcome. If you got any please leave a comment below.

The second trip will be a hockey trip in order to see IIHF World Championships 2018. So an all day in Copenhagen in order to see three games with Team Sweden as the big game together with two friends. Me and Alexander that’s going to join have been watching and discussing all Hockey World Championships since 1992 together sp its kind of a big deal and its the first time we will watch any of the games live. Super excited about this one as well.

Now are both trips official. I just have to finalize the last details on these trips but I’m so looking forward to both of them. I visited Copenhagen in March 2015 last time and really started to like the city so, I’m real happy to go back.

Here are the post from 2015 if you would like to catch up.

Skiing Weekend!

This weekend I finally went skiing. After last weekends failed attempt to go cross country skiing due to a sick wife we finally made it this weekend.Perfect weather with clear blue sunny skies, a lot of snow and minus 13 degrees Celsius. Doesn’t get much better than that to be honest.We went to a place about 1 hour north of Oslo by car called Brovoll. The only way to get there is by car as I know. This isn’t a ski resort or something like that but an small place that was recommended by Norwegian friends. A small house with a small cafe and just first class tracks for cross country skiing. Where an amazing weekend and getting out into the woods on skies a sunny winters day is hard to beat. The snow covered trees and the meter think layer of snow that covers the ground. The silence of absolutely nothing is breathtaking. When I go skiing in that kind of conditions everything else just disappears. It’s good for me I’m sure it that. By the way had my GoPro with my and just had to try it out. Might come a short video later.Have you tried cross country skiing? Let me know if you want to try Brovoll and I can give you the location more exact.

A place nobody thought someone could live

The last couple of days I’ve found a Norwegian Tv serie with the title “A place where nobody though someone could live”. It’s a tv serie produced by the public broadcasting company NRK and they’ve done 16 seasons. And I just found it.

They follow a person or a family in a beautiful place in Norway where almost no one else lives. The first episode I watched where about an old man that where the only one that live in his village. And it had been so for many years.

Great scenery and fascinating stories. And my wife recommends the show for me and said that we should live like that sometime in life. And I can see the fascination. To live in a little village or so that have stunning views and nature. I think I could live like that for if not all year a large part of it. I think that’s why I appreciate our cottage. It’s not fully like the show but I can find similarities to what I like and my thoughts.

It’s also really funny to listen to dialects especially after been living in Norway. So even if I’m a Swede and talk Swedish I understand the most Norwegian words and part of the language and dialects. It’s pretty similar languages.

Do you think you could live in a place just your family? And in what kind of environment?

By the way I highly recommend you to see it if you can find it.
