Some of you might remember my blog post from last summer where we were trying out my brother’s new drone camera? My brother’s clearly been practising a fair deal after that,
During Lana’s and mine Finland visit we spent a day in Helsinki with a good friend, eating well and checking out the Design Museum. Having lived in Helsinki for most of my twenties the city will always have a special place in my heart and I’m hoping I’ll get to live there again one day – or at least so close that I can visit often!
Since I travel between Finland and the UK several times a year I cannot help but make small observations about differences in Finnish and Scottish everyday life that I find curious, interesting or just plain annoying – and now I thought I’d share them with you as well my dear friends. Remember that these are just my personal, not-so-objective observations and generalisations based on 1,5 years in London and 2,5 years in Edinburgh! So without further introductions, here they are:
Today was one of those good days when I just woke up in a good mood and didn’t even feel tired although I barely slept last night (both Lana and trouble falling asleep are to blame). The sun was shining from a blue sky once again and the lawn was glistening with frost. Yup, we’re down to minus degrees already! I didn’t bring warm enough clothes for Lana (I don’t think she even owns clothes that warm), so we had to get her some wintry stuff.
I’ve posted some wintry photos of my home town in the past but it’s in summer that the town really comes alive and shows off its beauty. During my 7-week stay this summer I’ve taken a bunch of photos of Old Borgå that I thought I’d share here with you as well!
