The winter in Seattle has been too gray and wet for my body, so I am embracing and looking extra forward to our coming trip to warmer destination. Craving sun & d-vitamin.
We are still waiting to hear back from Höganäs county in Sweden regarding our building permit (soon 10 weeks have passed). The delay is due to making the garage taller than the allowed height. The process then is to let neighbors give their opinion, so together with Fiskarhedenvillan we have been trying to solve it. We hope our last adjustment will be approved. For now, we can only wait. Once we get the GO, we can “order” the house and finally book the EXCAVATOR to turn our lot upside down. As you can see below – we still haven’t been able to walk in. We are not sure what we bought ;). Its a jungle, but we love our jungle.
Speaking of jungle or well forest, I found this fun vacation spot. It obviously has nothing to do with our summer house but my goal with this blog is also to write, share and inspire with other ideas and discoveries I stumble across. So, today I am taking you to California.
I found this wonderful spot located in north California (close to San Fransisco) called Autocamp. A cool camping place in the hearts of Sonoma´s wine country. Perhaps you true campers do not consider this is to be the real deal but for me being more the hotel gal´ that prefers the comfy beds, the fresh towels, wine & fruit …;), this sounds and looks just perfect for moi!
My love for Airstream trailers goes way back before Dr. Dreamy Sheppard showed up with his in Greys Anatomy :). I just think they have the coolest design and are so classic.
We are often in the look out for fun long weekend ideas and for us with 3 girls we need to alternate and do different things to keep them all happy. I certainly love exploring new cities but I also think its important & healthy to experience something a bit more authentic, like being in the woods and far away from it all. After almost 10 years in Seattle, a place known for its outdoorsy lifestyle I have learned to appreciate the outdoors much more. So Autocamp looks like a fantastic spot for us to visit. Take a look.
Autocamp offers super luxury Airstreams as well as tents. All of them designed and with top of the line comfort. Sounds like a nice mix of camping and hotel. They have a cool main club house, a small store, a big bar as well as hang out areas, indoor and outdoor fireplaces. Of course they have wifi (if you really cant be without it for a weekend).
Below images from their restroom and showers. It certainly doesn’t look like the camping bathrooms I have visited during my years. No, far from it. This looks like a SPA in comparison!
Here´s how one of the tents look like. Just imagine, don´t need to spend the first 2 hours putting up your tent (which in some cases can lead to tiny irritation and arguments ;)). At Autocamp, its already made! Not sure about you but I have never stayed in a tent that looks like this. Nope. Obviously I realize the experience and fun with camping comes with putting up your own tent, creating your own fire, catching your own food etc etc… but please don´t hate me for liking this idea as well….;)).
Autocamp is of course located in the forest, easy to go on hikes, make picnics, rent and go on bike rides. There is close by canoeing and you can also take the car and drive out to the ocean if you feel like that. Just chilling and reading a book sounds like a wonderful idea as well.
Earlier this fall we went on an American style family RV trip with another family and we both said afterwards that we want to experience this again. So much fun. Obviously driving your own RV is slightly different but this place could maybe be the next fun experience we do? What do you say M?
