Khoollect explores: a Swedish countryside retreat

***Rachel Khoo would like to thank all the inspiring people who helped make the Khoollect studio a hive of creativity. Although the Khoollect studio’s doors have now closed, you can keep up with Rachel’s newest adventures on and on Rachel’s Instagram and Facebook pages – and, continue to enjoy the Khoollect website’s stories and recipes, which will remain available.***

If you’ve been following along with Team Khoollect’s Instagram Stories, you’ll have seen that we’ve taken a little leap out of London over the past week, to a destination where fresh air, towering trees and frozen lakes abound.

Having hopped on a plane from Luton airport during the early hours of Monday morning, the team landed in beautiful Copenhagen where we soon boarded a train for the next few hours. Destination: the Swedish countryside.

Swedish retreat

As a bunch of travel-loving country-hopping enthusiasts, Team Khoollect were beyond excited to see what awaited them.

By late Monday afternoon, we’d arrived in the serene surrounds of Sweden’s southern country region, ready for hot cups of coffee, traditional Swedish baked goods and a good old-fashioned frolic through the countryside.

Of course, the weather during a Swedish winter is a little on the chilly side, and so our bags were stuffed full of gloves, beanies, jumpers and warm clothes. Here’s what else we packed.

Luckily, our Editor-in-Chief Rachel Khoo knows a trick or two about cooking deliciously warming meals and kept the team fed and fueled for the workshops she had planned for us.

Between hitting the little wooden sauna overlooking a frozen lake, enjoying group meditation each morning, taking luxurious walks through the forest, eating hearty fare (and our daily fika!) and snapping nature photos, the team got brainstorming about, and planning, what’s coming up on Khoollect.

We’ve got some super exciting things in the works this year, and are very eager to share it all with you as soon as we can. For now, keep your eyes peeled on our Monday newsletters and social media for clues and news…
