Go hide in Scandinavia

June 30, 2009 | 2 Comments

Fancy getting away from it all: Try these little hiding places in Scandinavia.

Our Louise loves the idea fo this hotel near Stockholm – it is in the middle of a lake and you have to sail to get there. Shown in the image above, it’s called Utter Inn.

Jonas likes the idea of getting away from it all in this beautiful Lighthouse hotel in Norway – and Henrik would love to stay in theis fancy pancy igloo in Finland.





Denmark didn’t have any unusual hotels, so Bronte got in a bit of a huff, but she did say that if you ever get stuck about 7 KM south-west outside Slagelse on Zealand in Denmark, you can waste the time waiting for the next bus by visiting Trelleborg, the site of an old Viking fortress. There’s not much there now, except some sheep and a few huts (not the real ones, dummy). Potential hotel?


Looking for Joey…

Back in the Eighties, Jonas went to his first ever concert. It was Europe and the song of the moment was The Final Countdown. He had curly hair and so did Joey Tempest, the lead singer. Peas, pods and all that.

We’ve just heard heard that the guys are touring again – more details on their website here about their gig in Derby on 16th August – www.europetheband.com

The guys at ScandiKitchen are excited, of course. Will it be the same as back then? Will Joey Tempest still have big curly hair? Will they wear tight trousers? Will they do The Final Countdown on their new tour?

Do you have any cringy EUROPE stories? We’d love to hear them and may even rewards you in nice coffees if we see fit.

A bit of trivia: Did you know that Joey Tempest’s real name is Rolf Magnus Joakim Larsson? Talk about killing the magic. Sorry.

Who’s who?

We’re not quite sure why, but there they are…

Meet Dave and Bertie. They run a company around the corner from Scandi Kitchen called Watermill : www.watermill-london.com. Basically, they think up great ideas and they are very good at it, actually.

Here’s footage of Dave and Bertie growing 20-second beards. We feature in one of these videos, thank you very much. Proud.
