Under one roof

The plan for this travel was actually to go to scandinavia. I had the idea to travel trough holland and sweden. But the call came from friends in France, so I gave up planning to go with the flow and a few days later I´m already on an Island.
So you can imagine, how surprised I was when I stumble in Calvi/Corsica in a Hotel that is run by a scandinavian Company with a particular concept of bringing the swedish culture to french speaking countries. When I first enter the hotel, I realize that the staff is unusual. The sexy receptionists, the cute bartender and also the cleaning personal is very young, mostly around 20, good looking and full of energy. They speak to each other in swedish and prefer to speak in english with me and not french. That particular scandinavian ascent that makes me smile all the time. Suddenly I have these questions in my head, where do they all come from? How do they live here? Is this little Hotel more a village with the character if a soap opera? The manager that looks like a viking is super open, friendly and tells me, that he lives in the building in one of the guest rooms with his son, who came visiting for summer. The rest of the staff is in the installed in the last floor underneath the roof and when I ask them to portray them in their private space they do all agree on it. I´m happy that I was able to see everyones improvised home and that I  can now share it with you.

The hotel name is not mentioned, because this is a personal project and no commercial collaboration.
