Day 7 -- Helsinki, One Last Time

A return to the market, and a good part of the day spent at the Allas Seapool and Sauna, overlooking the harbor.

Day 4 -- Helsinki the Second Time

Bank in Helsinki, this time with all day to explore. Really loved this city. Hit up walked everywhere, from the central market to the Museum of Contemporary Art to Finlandia Hall. Found serenity in The Rock Church and the Kampii Chapel of Silence.

Day 1 - Helsinki the First Time

Arrival in Helsinki in the late afternoon. Some wandering around near the Ferry docks. Had a nice fish dinner at Restaurant Meri Makasiini. Since it was Sunday, very little was open.

Koditon ja onnellinen

Uuden vuoden taitteessa piti jättää mukava mummonvinttihuoneistoni Riihimäellä. Mutta en kanna huolta, maailmalta löytyy kyllä uusia koteja. Ja viimeiset päivät ennen lähtöä punkkailen vielä kaverin luona. Samalla kun jätän ystäville hyvästejä, mietin mihin heidän elämänsä tästä jatkuvat...

Varustelut

Mitä ihmettä pakata matkalle, jossa ollaan kerrallaan monta kuukautta ja matkataan kaikkien eri ilmastovyöhykkeiden ja vuodenaikojen halki -40 asteen Siperian pakkasista +40 asteeseen Thaimaaseen löhöttelemään? Tärkeintä on että jokainen vaatekappale on mahdollisimman monikäyttöinen, sopii...

Alkusanat

Suomessa kaamos on juuri kauheimillaan, mutta oma mieleni on jo matkassa kolisevilla junaraiteilla kohti itää. Siperian talvi on pitkä ja kylmä, mutta ajatuskin matkan päällä olemisesta saa jo mielen lämpenemään. Mielessäni olen kutsunut tätä matkaa "The Matka":ksi ja sitä se onkin, sillä...

Chilling

Pri: We had a little RnR today and after a great breakfast with Angel's parents we headed out to a summer cottage where Satu and Thiago and family hosted us perfectly. I had a chance to try and get over my fear of saunas there, by doing the sauna and then jumping into a cold lake. We repeated...

Last Day at Provinssi

Pri: Today was sunny and warmish! Yay! We actually painted people's hands and faces and also did henna tattoos. We were able to reach more people as they were a lot less drunk today. One Mum drove for five hours so that her seven year old son so that he could see his favourite band - Rammstein....

Day Number 2 - Provinssi Rock

Pri: Point of interest - apparently in Finland, if you have been drinking, peeing in public is completely acceptable, whether you are a guy or a girl! Provinssi Rock is in a forest, and I swear guys have peed on every tree in the festival area. I know that gross, but I just had to tell you as it...

Provinsiirock

Pri: I'm ill and I'm sleeply, and I'm cold. Doll: People here are insane. It's about 10 degrees and people are running about in shorts and thongs. It's strange. No one came to our stall so we gave free hugs and talked to some people. It was fun. There's this band, I think they're called Mew,...
