Today I flew to Stockholm again this morning for a leadership course at work and took a flight back home to Gothenburg and every single time I use the app App in the air. Suprisingly, this might be one of my favorit apps and I will break it down for you and explain why.
- All the info I want!
Yes, that’s right. It gives me all the info that I want, when I need it. When the check-in closes, when boarding starts, what gate I need to be at, when it leaves, when I should arrive and delays of there i any. Just magnificent. This is just how I want technology to work.
- Tracks me
This might be scary to some people but I find in fantastict I can look back and see where and when I’ve been to different places in the world when I’ve been flying. I even gives me home many kilometers and how many hours I’ve spent flying. In fact it even tells me what plane models I’ve flue with and what airlines.
- Beautiful and Easy
The app is just beautiful and shows with great grapics the statistics and the trips I’ve done on a map and then there are small acheivments thats fun to reach and really simple and easy to use.
Bonus. It works with my Apple Watch which feeds me the most importat info that I want without even have to take my phone out of the pocket.
BAO Kitchen is located in the “old town” of down town Kungsbacka, Sweden. Rather close to the central station and Kungsbacka square. From what I know this is a rather new place that serves Asian fusion food.
The interior is probably best described as green and rustic with focus on nature and natural material such as wood. Not the most cosy vibe when I first looked in from the street but once you got in and got you table it was much better than expected and a nice relaxed vibe.
How about the food? I tried a bun meal and a salmon bowl. The buns where probably the best buns I’ve tried and the bowl where real good but not the best I’ve tried. Still very high class and this is without a doubt the best restaurant I’ve ever tried in Kungsbacka. The food where good, exciting and something new for me and as the same time high quality. Best restaurant in town! I highly recommend this place.
Tried this place for lunch a Saturday with my dad. Zocalo is located in the shopping mall Frölunda Torg which translates into Frölunda square. Service where good, not exceptional and not bad but just what you should expect.
The interior of the place is classic modern and stereotypical Mexican not the Swedish taco Mexican but the more real Mexican way. It had potential to really become great with some minor adjustment such as more vibrant color and so on but I didn’t. Despite all this the interior where over what I’ve expected from this place.
However, the real deal for lunch is the food. The menu where full of Mexican dishes and flavors but the taste where just not what I wanted. The food where barley okay. I would so much like to write something else but I just couldn’t.
This is to sum up a place that I would not recommend.
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.
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.
So a while ago I saw the latest Jack Reacher movie and I just have to start of my saying that I really like Tom Cruise as an actor he always delivers. In fact he might be one of my absolute favorite actors. However that was not what Inentirely thought I would write about. I like the actors okay but Cruise and the young girl really makes something of this move. The story is a Lee Child story and he is one of my favorite authors so it’s good but but as good as the books.
It’s action packed as you expect it to be. The stenography is good. As well as the photography that tends to be action based in my opinion. So I would recommend this movie!
First of all I just want to say happy new year everyone and thanks for reading the blog during 2016. It’s amazing to be able to run this blog.
2016 have been an intense year but I first realized when looking back at it on new years eve. So I though I would summarize it a little bit. And I have an idea of split a deeper review up during the next month.
So 2016 started I started out on my trip to Bali. Which was my first time I spent new year outside of Sweden. Bali was amazing and among the best trips of my life and right now I can see a lot of people posting from Bali on social media and I just want to go back soon again.
However the trip ended and I returned back to work and my home in Oslo. Back home in Oslo i cross country skied as much as I could and when X-games visited Oslo me and friend went and saw the big air competition which where amazing.
During the spring I celebrated my 29th birthday and I did so in Florence, Italy which where great. Don’t think I ever been to a city where I’ve eaten som much great food and been drinking so much great wine and with great I really med GREAT!
Just two weeks after my return to Oslo I went back to Italy. This time I stopped in Milan on the way to Cinque Terra where I hiked for 5 days with beautiful views.
The summer I spent in Sweden as usually together with my family and during the summer my grandpa on mother side past away. But I also had a real nice summer. Most of it by my girlfriend G’s family’s cottage in Dalsland but also on the Swedish West coast that pretty much is Swedish summer to me. I also climbed hiked up the Norwegian mountain Gaustatoppen and meet my mom’s cousins and their children which where about the same age as me.
The autumn has I not written som much about on the blog but where among the biggest changes this year. I got a new job in Sweden that meant that I moved form Norway back home to Sweden again. However, I still travel a lot to Oslo and Norway because my girlfriend G still lives in Oslo. Much of the end of the year have been going to establishing my self back in Sweden. Taking up contact with friends in the area. Started to train lifeguarding again.
It’s been an intense year and I already now know that 2017 might be a even bigger year for me. I will let you know soon what this hint is about.
I got to admit that I’ve never been more afraid of going on a roller coaster than this one and I had not planed to go on it but as I built up my roller coaster confidence during the day I went. What a ride, this is the only roller coaster ever that made me scream out of pure joy on adrenaline ever.
This 126 meters high and 167 km/h fast roller coaster is beyond anything else I ever tried before. This is excitement and this is a thrill and I love speed in controlled forms and here you go from 0-167 km/h in 7 second, you 90 degrees right up into the sky in 126 meters and then fall back. This is something I can promise you that.
I would without a doubt recommend this if you dare to go on it and I rank it 5 out of 5 points. Amazing!
Attached a little video from TheCoasterViews on Youtube if you’re interested to check it out.
It was a long time since I had one of these post on the blog but now it’s time again for a roller coaster review. This is a review from when I visited Six Flags Magic Mountain last summer that I first now could publish here on the blog.
So Twisted Colossus where just re-opened and it as a big roller coaster, trust me in fact its the longest wood and steel hybrid roller coaster in the world. And it gives you quite some time on the ride, especially if you compare with the Swedish and Norwegians roller coaster I’ve tried earlier that often are real good but short. This is something else. It’s not the most extreme ride I’ve tried but it has some cool hang time where you hang over another ride that’s real cool. It’s a real exciting ride with its share of thrills and I really like it.
I would rank it 4 out 5 points and I would definitely recommend it. I attached a video from Sharp Productions at youtube if you want to check it out.
Yesterday I visited the restaurant Hvaskjer (Norwegian for approximately what is happening) thats located in Torshov. First visit to this place and I really like it I can say you that much already now.
So lets start with the exterior, it all looks like a cinema or a small venue for concerts which is also is and a bit luxurious in the put side. When you get in you get a hipster vibe, modern, good food, rustic and focus on meat. Very dark interior which I can have a hard time to like often but not this time because the make their concept to 110% without any compromises which I really like. The open kitchen where you can see how they make your food over the open wood fire just makes it great.
And this place is a restaurant that really have focus on the meat and it’s very obvious that it is that way. I had the burger of the day which probably is the most innovative burger I ever tasted anywhere in the world. I was well composed and with Asian taste influences and probably the best meat I’ve eaten in a burger, might be of all time or might be just in Norway. Not sure about that yet. If you like fires they are perfectly crispy and just perfect inside as well but I think they would be even better without the Parmesan cheese and the spices. But still top notch fries.
If you like burgers or meat at think this is a must visit place. I will go here again just to try out the meat very soon I hope.
However, I have nothing bad to say about this place and I really want to review it with top review but I just can’t. I can not say what it s but there is something missing that I cant pinpoint so I will rank it with 4 out of 5 points as close to 5 points as it possible gets and I will more than recommend this place.
If you want to check this place you can find more info on their webpage: http://www.hvaskjertorshov.no or at Yelp: http://www.yelp.no/biz/hvaskjer-oslo?utm_campaign=www_business_share_popup&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_source=(direct)
