A cozy sauna spa in Mama’s Pocket

Finnish archipelago in winter

A few months ago I had a chance to visit a cozy and original site called Herrankukkaro (“Mama’s Pocket”) built upon an old fishing village. It was located in the Turku archipelago in Southwest Finland and used mainly for business meetings and team building.

Herrankukkaro has put effort to their own sauna spa area because they want to cultivate the Finnish cultural sauna heritage. The spa has four different smoke saunas, including the world’s largest smoke sauna for up to 124 people!

The  place is probably at its best in the summer time, but I think it had a special, almost magical atmosphere in the winter. During my stay the weather got cold extremely fast and I saw something impressive. I witnessed the sea freeze. Never seen that before!

A perfect skiing day

Hot tub in Colorado
This week we have finally had our long waited winter break. Both Kati and I packed our families and travelled to the mountains to find snow and to enjoy some time off with our families. Kati and her family had a great time in Colorado while we enjoyed  beautiful Vermont. Yesterday, after getting back home, we chatted about our experiences.  We both had a similar recipe for a perfect  day. And this is how it goes:

1. Take a sunny day
2. Add lots of snow
3. Ski with your  family or friends
4. Relax in sauna or hot tub afterwards
5. Treat yourself to a tasty dinner
6. Have a long and good night’s sleep

Enjoy at least once a year!
