Many of us agree on that escaping to a ski friendly resort in the deepest of winter is the best way to make use of the cold and dark season. At ski resorts there is plenty of light and we keep ourselves active during the lightest hours, collecting vitamin D from the sun and letting out steam in the white slopes. Have you never gone for skiing holiday you are missing out on the best part of winter.
The Alps have countless destinations for anyone looking for good skiing conditions, beautiful nature and an interesting after-ski life with good food, beer, open fires and evennight clubbing. Val Thorens is a great destination if you are looking for a livelier place, situated on the peak of a mountain it is a favourite place for many winter holiday makers. Val Thorens especially attracts a young crowd who likes a good party in between skiing adventures.

Where I live we quite often get tourist and many of them are from Sweden. Once I was talking to one of them when he suddenly took out a round little object from his pocket, opened it and what was inside looked like dirt. He made a ball out of it an stuffed it under his upper lip, spat once and continued talking. I had no clue what he was doing and as the well behaved person I am I didn´t ask. But I think he saw my expression. He took it out again and asked if I wanted to try. I could feel the smell from far away and I now know why he looked so satisfied. I did what he had done, and swallowed maybe half of it. I liked the taste of it, but it took some spitting to get the juices under control.
I asked the man where this product was sold and he showed me a site on the internet. He typed Snus Switzerland and immediately a webpage popped up. There they sell swedish tobacco of all sorts. Not only to swedes but all over the world. To anyone who wants it. The guy showed me some of the labels they had and recommended the pre made ones. The snus was in small bags. That way I didn´t have to spit as much he said. Well, I ordered a few boxes of the snus and now I know I can go to Sweden and look like a proper swede!

There is all of us normal people, and then there is a small bunch of extraordinary people with amazing skills and tremendous guts. I love watching video captions of people accomplishing extraordinary things. There is a fine line between being curageous and plain stupid, of course, but who are we to judge..? LIVING ON THE EDGE!

So, I'm quite a regular traveler and I have traveled with many different airlines over the years. Some things are obvious, like receiving better customer service when traveling with more expensive airlines, and expecting less when flying with low-cost ones. No biggie. But there is still quite a remarkable differnece between airlines within the same category, which is quite surprising, when thinking about it.
I personally have two favourites when it comes to customer service, when all otherthings are put aside. My first pick is always SPirit Airlines, becuase the Spirit Airlines customer service is impeccable. When I find reasonable priced flights with Spirit, they are always my first choice. Also the Southwest Airlines customer service is really good. They answer promptly and always go out of their way to help even with the smallets matter. I really appreciate that in an airline.
I know other people find customer service not all that important, and prefer to always just book the cheapest flight, but having traveled a lot I have also been in several situations where I have been dependeing on customer service. All is well when you get it, but hell when you don't. So, yeah, it matters.
My next trip goes to Chicago and I'm flying with Spirit Airlines which makes me feel confident. I found a great deal and I also know that they will help put with any inconvenience that might occur. Looking forward to it!

If you want to be successful in blogging you have to use lots of pictures. Text is interesting, but it's the pictures that make people feel attached, and the more personal you dare to be with pictures, the better outcome. People's faces, especially happy ones, and cute animals are always safe bets. Use pictures and personalize as much as you dare and you have a great starting point for your blog.

Nowadays all of us turn to the Internet for most things, not least inspiration. I spent many months on sites like Pinterest and Instagram before taking the leap to remodel my bathroom. The problem is that the more inspiration you search for, the more confused you get. There are so many amazing ideas to realise when it comes to interior design, and it's quite challenging to know what suits you best in the long run. Trends are temptations, but most trends feel out of date within as little as a year. So what do you do?
I think it's important to stick to some kind of basic preference as a base. What still get your juices flowing today that also got them flowing five and ten years ago? Chose that for the basics (i.e. tiles and sink). Then you can go a little bit more crazy with details or things that are easier to change after some years (i.e. wall colour).
I also recommend to make sure you speak the same language as the remodeling firm you chose to hire for the job. I was so lucky with mine - not only were they really attentive to my ideas but they also guided me out of a few traps that I was setting for myself - AND they came up with some ideas I had never even thought of. It was an amazingly fun process and I loved working with the pros at Kerkinni & Friends in Minneapolis.
The bathroom is my favourite room in the house now - I have even had some of my morning coffees in there since the remodeling project was done. It inspires me!
