Easter is one of my main family holidays (Christmas being the other), and apart from a few I have always spend Easter at my mothers cabin in Lyngen just outside of Tromsø where I grew up.
Lyngen being one of the top selections of free ride skiing in the world (totally subjective of course…) I always find tremendous peace and the opportunity to really recharge my batteries being back there.
My mother has insisted in keeping the cabin without electricity and water, so heating the cabin with the fireplace and getting snow to melt for water to wash the dishes, really means that ones focus is being shifted for a few days.
This year I was so lucky to be accompanied by my friend and her husband, which just made my yearly Easter- getaway even better.
As the cherry on the top we even had AMAZING weather the entire time- what more can one ask for?
I mean, you cannot ask for anything else than this view!
I finally (after 4 trips to London) found the energy and motivation to also work out the two days I was there.
I love running as it takes you around, is good exercise, does not require too much equipment AND kick triggers the ever so great endorphin rush ❤
So, as we were staying close to the river Thames that became my choice of path.
Additional bonuses: great weather and sunset !
Just had to show the hotels’ great breakfast!
I went to Rome to meet up with my mom and aunt who came for a weekend.
Started the first day with a seightseeing bus, booked tickets for them to go to the Vatican museum today (btw- if looking to book tickets- book from an android phone- 10€ cheaper…) and ended the evening with some aaaaaamazing food and wine at a restaurant recommended by my fantastic boss!
Totally hungover today, but off we go to enjoy Rome 🙂
Lovely weekend in Val di Gardena with my sister-in-law and her friends. They all came from Norway on Saturday afternoon, so I went up there, skied on my own on Saturday and then skied with them on Sunday. OMG the weather was amazing, the pists were great and the company were world- class.
I’ve been in London since Thursday, in meetings until Friday afternoon and then enjoyed the weekend with my love.
We’ve been eating our way through London, which is really sad honestly-need to be better here!!
Was supposed to stay at the same hotel all days, but had to split it up since my work pays for everything but the weekend obviously, and managed to boo two different ones, so had to change hotels on Friday and then again on Sunday- annoying… !
Anyway- lovely stay in London 🙂
Brewdog- so classic it hurts a bit…;)
My favorite area (street…)-Carnaby
Sooooo good Indian food-Dishoom Soho
Classic Camden town
Tomorrow is all about meetings and returning home to Italy- got to love it 🙂
