Back to road trip planning!

We are right now in the process of choosing hotels. Since both me and my friend Henrik loves the Mondrian hotels we wanted to see if we might bump in to some on the way. And we will - Mondrian at Miami South Beach. Jackpot!

Reseplaneringen är igång igen!

Just nu håller vi på att välja hotell för resan. Då både jag och min vän Henrik älskar Mondrians hotell ville vi se om vi faktiskt skulle stöta på några på vägen, och det ska vi - Mondrian hotell på Miami South Beach, jackpott!

This is a picture from Mondrian in West Hollywood where we stayed last summer for a few nights. We attended to a crazy pool party and I do believe our new friends at the party were to blame for destroying one of the nice tables you can see on the picture. Crazy times indeed.

Det här är en bild från Mondrian i West Hollywood där vi bodde några nätter förra sommaren. Vi festade på ett crazy pool party där jag tror våra nyfunna vänner råkade ha sönder ett av de fina borden ni ser på bilden. Galet kan man säga.

We first fell in love with Mondrian hotels in London 2 years ago. The best hotel Iv'e ever stayed at with fantastic rooms, good service and a roof top bar. Mondrian in LA was also good, even tho the rooms were a bit smaller.

I really hope that we will end up choosing Mondrian in Miami. We need to check every one off the list, right?

Första gången vi förälskade oss i Mondrians hotell var i London för 2 år sedan. Det är det bästa hotellet jag bott på med underbara rum, bra service och en nice roof top bar. Mondrian i LA var också väldigt bra även om rummen var ganska små.

Jag hoppas verkligen vi väljer Mondrian i Miami nu. Vi måste ju checka av alla deras hotell på listan, eller hur?

So I bought this one this morning.

Or not... But I really wish it was for me. I am sending this gift as a present to a customer. I sure hope he will be happy for it., I would have been :)

I om the other hand is as poor as one could possible be. Maybe putting all your money on travel isn't the smartest choice when you need to eat, pay rent and also live... Well, well, Like I would stop with that.

Time to go to bed soon. This week will be full of work, gym classes and packing. I have finally signed the contract for my new flat. and will move during the weekend. Super excited!

Good Night

We made it. Woke up at 5.00. On a Friday.

We started the day (night) with a great 1 hour yoga class. It felt amazing to be up that early (Once we actually woke up) and move the body to great music.

So this is how it actually looks in Paceville at 06.30 when sober people are dancing together.

It felt really weird being at a club, in PV, without a drink in my hand, dancing, on a Friday morning... sober. But I am SO HAPPY that I did it!

It was a great experience and I would love to do it again. We even got free breakfast and juices to start the day in the best possible way. What a nice way to start the weekend :)

Enjoy your Friday!

I guess London gave me a really hard time. Have been home in bed the last 3 days feeling like crap.
Today I needed something positive to think about so I made my favorite sandwich with poached egg and avocado.

The sun was shining today so I went outside for a while and sat down on my balcony. I sat there for 10 minutes eating my toast before I realized that it's not summer yet... It was freezing.

It is time to go back to work tomorrow but before that my friend Nickie and I signed up for Yoga and Rave party at... Wait for it... 5,30 in the morning. I have been to paceville many times during that time, but not sober while working out... This is not my smartest idea.

Will let you know how it went tomorrow if I'm still alive.

I hope everyone had a great Valentine yesterday. My day was very slow since I was home from work so we decided to stay in and cook.

Valentine's dinner last evening at home; 4 course dinner with wine and good music.

Toast Skagen

Toast Skagen with Sancerre as Amuse Bouche.

Home made fish soup with saffron and fresh fish and mussels as starter.

Big ass steak <3

Steak with red wine sauce, asparagus and potatoes together with a bottle of Valpolicella Ripasso. Yes please!

For some reason I never got my desert... Had been looking forward to that Chocolate Fondant the whole day. Maybe next time :/

With love

The last day at the conference went well. As usual the last day is always more relaxed and people start focusing more on the bars then the business.

We headed in to central London in the evening for a dinner at Heliot steakhouse at the casino. The salmon I have was probably the best salmon I've ever tasted. Yum!

After the dinner we went to a bar that we came across last time, Waxy's O Connor. The Hobbit / Harry Potter interior is pretty fantastic and the further in you go in the bar, the more rooms you discover. I can for sure recommend going there for an ale at a Saturday night evening.

We met up with two Norwegian ambassadors from the conference who is also famous MMA fighters. We had Chinese and went to a bar after that. They were super nice and I have never felt so save before :)

The night ended after dawn and we realized that the infamous bar Clique is not only to be discovered in Malta but also in London. Not to be recommended :)

All the best

When we visited London last time in December we realized that wine at a Piano Bar is the best possible way to start an evening. Everybody in the bar are in a good mood listening and singing to the Piano man.

We decided to go back this time and spent Friday evening at Piano Smithfield. The piano man always plays these famous songs that everybody knows the lyrics to. People are singing and dancing and I love how happy everybody is. A cliche I know, but I got so happy when he played Billy Joel's Piano Man.

We had a very late dinner last night at Duck & Waffle. It was a great place with nice food, open 24/7 apparently... Came back to the hotel at 02.00, took a shower and fell asleep.

We started early today at LAC and it has for sure been a long day. Had some good meetings and met all the folks from Malta at the conference. I think we had the nicest looking stand by far.

I am enjoying a beer at the moment, looking forward of going back to the hotel for a shower. The only thing we have planned tonight is a visit to a Piano bar. We did that last time and absolutely loved it.

Enjoy your Friday!

I started the day with a fantastic avocado sandwich and a kiwi. A very green breakfast. It definitely beats the horrible airport food...

We are at the airport now, ready to go. Let's hope the trip goes fast so that we can arrive soon and get our first cocktail.

I only have a team dinner planned tonight, better take it slow first :)

Talk next time in London!

Time to go back to London!

I lied when I said that I did my packing yesterday... Well, I started but I have of course left half of the things for tonight (Read: Tomorrow morning)

The taxi is coming around 11.00 which will give us enough time for a beer at the airport. It is going to be 2 though days at the conference but I am really excited. Can't wait until I get to go back to My palce soho for this amazing breakfast and Sketch for their cocktails.


See you in London! :)
