My perfect FT Weekend would be...

Nordic Inspiration. Lunch at Maaemo in Norway with local Henrik Syse. Fresh philosophy & fresh food. A recharge for the senses & the soul.

Brexit - The very word makes us eye-rollingly weary, no matter what side you're on. What better place to recalibrate, recharge and get fresh ideas than Norway. Time to be inspired not disheartened. What next for me? What next for the world? There is no difference really. We are all here for the adventure together! Lunch at an award winning ecological, ethical restaurant which puts the Earth first, with Henrik Syse, a philosopher who knows how to unite politics with philosophy for the greater good. Compassionate politics is no fad, let me learn from the Parliamentary philosopher himself. Norway has been on my places to go list for some time and now is the perfect time. As well as absorbing some culture & scenery, eating Nordic style at a Michelin starred restaurant with a great mind will cheer me up, and help me to cheer the UK up when I report back my findings! Delicious refreshment for both body and mind.
