Concept: We’re staying in a log cabin. It’s a perfect spring day; not too hot nor too cold. I’ve just made us some tea and we’re sitting on the front porch together looking out at the lake. The water is still and it reflects the blue sky and the many trees all around us. Everything is quiet. Everything is peaceful, and my heart feels as warm as the cup of tea in my hands.
I did a trekking from the Hardangervidda plate to the fjords and this cabin was located in a very remote gorge full of waterfalls from the surrounding glaciers who where melting. The cabin itself was one of the last things that were left of the mining in the area except for some old pickaxes.
Good wood - introducing Portugal’s most idillic getaway. ‘Sublime Comporta’ is an award-winning hotel integrated into the rural coastal landscape, surrounded by rice fields, umbrella pines, vineyards, and miles of pristine white beaches. Heaven!
Good wood - moody but magnificent, with an interior to die for. Lung Hagem’s Norwegian chalet is a wonderful combination of blackened timber and concrete on the outside and paler oak with more concrete on the inside.
