When I first came to Hotel Tylösand I was 17 years old. It was my first trip to Sweden, and it might seem like a strange choice for a Russian girl to choose Tylösand instead of making a more ordinary tourist trip. But I was no ordinary tourist. I came to Sweden with my friends to see Per Gessle during his tour in 2007. We just had to come and see our favourite musician’s hotel and of course the Roxette/Gyllene Tider museum at Leif’s Lounge. And I immediately fell in love with Tylösand.
During the following years I returned to Tylösand again and again. I stayed at the hotel, enjoyed the spa, had wonderful dinners at the Tylöhus restaurant, sunbathed at the best beach – and in 2018 I married my loved one at S:t Olofs chapel, where Christof Jeppsson played Gyllene Tider songs for us during the ceremony. When we tried to find a church for the wedding, I googled ”the most beautiful churches in Sweden” and the first link I got was to the Tylösand chapel. It felt like destiny.
I have always felt that Tylösand is a perfect place for me. A place where I get strength to dream. My biggest dream during the last years has been to move to Halmstad and be able to see sunsets at the Tylösand beach every day. And when you dream and keep your hopes high, your wishes come true. In May 2020 we move to Halmstad. And I can look forward to having wonderful June, July, August in my favourite place on earth.
