As you know, I’m in Stockholm. My Olympian pre-bikini, two hours a day, 7 day a week fitness routine has taken to me on a daily sweatathons through the Haga Park, in Solna just North of the capital. Today I decided to conclude my tribulations on a mountain bike ride around the lake, followed by a refreshing dip (of a toe).
For those in search of something a little more soothing, there is The Radisson Blu Royal Park Hotel with a lovely spa, pool and gym. Although the hotel itself feels a little abandoned in a Twin Peaks David Lynch sort of way you can always stop over to use the spa facilities, roam the park and tuck into a hearty lunch on the gorgeous terrace overlooking the lake.
