Finding the perfect getaway can be a challenging business; you want to feel at ease, relaxed and replenished, but where can you find a spot with the perfect amount of privacy mingled with life-changing views?

Well, this tree hotel in the northern Swedish forests offers rooms perched among the pines with an awesome aesthetic landscape to boot.

It's essentially something straight out of a dream, with different room types like the Bird's Nest, The Cabin and the UFO (legit a flying saucer).

Each of the seven available rooms are all modern variations of tree houses designed by Scandinavian architects, which allow you to bond with nature in the lap of luxury. 

The Tree Hotel is so private and remote that you have to fly all the way from Stockholm to the Lulea Airport, and then the hotel organises for a car to collect you, or for a train journey.  

You can totally disconnect and enjoy the natural lifestyle, as well as possessing that crucial WiFi in case you need to post an emergency Instagram of your incredible surroundings. Oh. it also has HEATED FLOORS and towers.

There's also a gorgeous restaurant on the property which makes sure to serve only local ingredients. Daytime activities include dog sled tours, ice fishing and photography walks.

You might need to tap into your savings to afford this one, however. Prices range from about €113 to €680 per night, depending on the time of year and type of room.

Maybe add it to the bucket list, or find a sugar daddy to help you out (joking…joking…)

Absolute boujee-ness goals.



Ireland mainly sticks to core subjects, even in transition year when students have the freedom to test various modules.

But something that has never popped up before is fishing on the curriculum.

Yep, transition year students from CBS James Street in Dublin are taking part in a new joint initiative by Inland Fisheries Ireland and eir which involves classroom lessons, fieldwork studies and practical exercises on fly fishing.

According to The Journal, it aims to teach students about fly fishing with the hopes of making it into to a lifelong hobby for them.

In recent weeks the students enjoyed class trips to Annamoe Trout Fishery in Wicklow and Courtlough Fishery in Balbriggan, where they practiced their rod skills and fished for rainbow trout using the methods that they have been taught in class.

Suzanne Campion, Head of Business Development with Inland Fisheries said: “We hope that the lessons learnt on important issues such as conservation and environmental protection will stay with students through life and that ultimately they will become custodians of our rivers and lakes.

"We also endeavour to get them hooked on fishing for life so it was fantastic to see a huge amount of skill evident in this group.”

Would you have fancied taking on this subject when you were in school?



Posing up in matching flat caps and warm geansai, David Beckham and his eldest child, Brooklyn, certainly looked like the perfect father-son duo on a fishing trip yesterday.

The 16-year-old even got lucky: catching a huge John Dory fish off the coast of Dover that even the captain was impressed with.

"Not bad for his first time fishing," his beeming dad wrote on his Instagram account. "A nice John Dory that the captain said its the 2nd biggest one he had seen. Very proud."

That's not all the pair got up to either: the teenage son of Victoria and David also had his first driving lesson. And rather than slumming it in a battered old banger, Brooklyn was treated to a spectacular, vintage ride. 

Indeed, with his flat cap still on, he undoubtedly embodied the roaring 1920s. "First driving lesson," he said on Instagram. "Very Gatsby!"

Mr Beckham recently returned from a trip to Cambodia, where he went to see the work carried out by his UNICEF fund, and evidently is enjoying a bit of down-time with his family on his arrival back in England.

With his wife, he has three other children: Romeo, 12, Cruz, 10, and three-year-old Harper.

Despite spending a considerable amount of time in Los Angeles, Brooklyn's earlier Instagram snaps of their trips betrayed his love of rural living in the country of his parents' birth.

"Loving the country life," he captioned one image of him dressed in a traditional Barbour wax jacket. Another shot showed him out on the sea. "Fishing with my dad," he simply wrote.
