My First Post!


This is it. After years of thinking about starting a blog I feel like NOW is the time to do it. I have recently moved to Edinburgh from London and want to share what the land of whiskey and kilts is like through the eyes of a Finn.

There are 3 main reasons why I want to blog:

1. I live away from friends and family and want them to be able to take part in my life. (I’m terrible at keeping in touch and letting people know what I’m up to)

2. I think most people need a creative outlet, and since I like writing and suck at drawing it has to be blogging.

3. As I stopped writing a diary years ago I think it would be great to somehow keep a record of my life that I can revisit when I want.

I’m a bit nervous about posting my personal life online, but I guess I’ll get used to it sooner or later. So please feel free to join me on my online adventure!

PS. I still don’t know what to call this blog!

PPS. The photo is from my last hours in London moving out from the flat I was sharing with one of my best friends from Finland.

I’m a Swedish-speaking Finn who left Finland for the lovely and thrilling London town in 2011, but after meeting an equally lovely and thrilling Scotsman I somehow now find myself in the beautiful city of Edinburgh. In February 2015 our gorgeous little girl arrived and made us a happy family of three. Follow my blog and get to know us!
