Copperhill Mountain Lodge, Are, Sweden

Ronald: “Such a beautiful hotel. With many copper elements in the interior, such as a fireplace with copper mantelpiece. Beautiful stuff, nice design - you can see that a lot of thought has gone into it. A kind of art hotel. I didn't sleep there, only ate. Tasty! And the service is not normal. Moreover, you can ski straight onto the slopes from the hotel.”

Chedi Muscat, Oman

Ronald: “A very nice hotel ten kilometers from the center of Muscat. With its own beach, a beautiful garden with many water features, a huge swimming pool, a great spa, an art gallery... Great! Suze and I had a villa with a very large round bath with all kinds of candles – a bit of a thousand-in-one-nights feeling. Very romantic. And in The Restaurant you can view the various cuisines – Italian, Arabic, Indian and Asian – from your table: they are housed in a kind of glass domes.”

Hakassan, Las Vegas

Ronald: “Hakassan in London is already great, this restaurant in the MGM Grand Hotel is even better. There is a mega club, it is one big party. I also like to gamble: roulette, poker, blackjack, craps… But I don't like losing ten thousand euros. I care about the , I'm crazy about games. Enjoy with friends. I don't just go into a casino. Okay, sometimes at Schiphol. Then I quickly put in three hundred euros and I either lose my money or I have my tickets out. That's how I do it. But I'll be sick if I lose those three hundred…”

Novikov, London

Ronald : “A new restaurant in Mayfair, which Mikel Arteta from Arsenal brought to my attention. Upstairs you can eat Asian Fusion, downstairs you have Italian cuisine, and below there is a very nice lounge club where you can drink all night long with nice music. I was there with one of my daughters. We have Peking duck salad and... black code ate. So terribly delicious. And a nice atmosphere. Monday evening and packed. is the place to be". "

Apartheid Museum, Johannesburg

Ronald: “In this museum you will find everything about the rise and fall of apartheid. You can enter through a black and white entrance, so that you can experience for yourself what it was like in the past. It made quite an impression on me.”
