Staying in Finland

Long time no see. Covid-19 has changed the world and my travel plans, to be honest I don’t even know what to do with my life anymore. So if anyone has any good suggestions, bring it on! I’ve been working, working and working. Covid-19 has been easy on Finland, but it’s definitely not the right…

Krakow in pictures

It’s been a while since my last post. It’s been quite hectic at work and it’s gonna be a lot more hectic during the spring since the Covid-19 seems to be hitting hard here in Nordic countries too. But I guess everybody’s already tired of talking about it, so I’ll show you some pictures from…

Sunny day in the cost of Helsinki

I live near Mustikkamaa island in Helsinki and go there for a walk few times a week. Spring is definitely my favorite time of the year, and this year it’s coming early. We’ve had a crazy winter here, no snow, just raining cats and dogs. But the spring, ahhh. Birdsong peaks, days are getting longer,…

DIY Emergency Kit

I’m a nurse. I’ve been working in university hospitals, health care centers and rehabilitating home care unit since 2008. (Yup, I’m that old). This doesn’t really mean that I’m super nurturing at my spare time, actually pretty much the opposite. I’m often a bit too carefree when it comes to my own well-being, even though…

Travel dreams – Caucasus and Middle East calling

Can’t stop dreaming. And definitely won’t stop dreaming. I was writing about some of my dream destinations earlier (and totally forgot Laos and Myanmar from my list) and now I’m gonna expand my list. The best thing about internet nowadays is that you can basically find a hundred ”ultimate backpacking guide to…” -blog posts of…

Find inspiration for change

Whether it’s about stepping on your yoga mat daily, eating healthy or finding the courage to quit your job and taking a step into the unknown, you need to find your inspiration and motivation somewhere. Sometimes it just comes out of nowhere without even thinking about it but sometimes you really need to seek for…

USA Road Trip – scenic views and unforgettable experiences

I’ve traveled to the US three times – two times to Florida and once to California, Nevada and Arizona. I did those trips with my ex but I still have some awesome memories from places that gave me goosebumps and made me speechless for its beauty. There were also places/things that made me cry or…

Is it acceptable to take off?

Being Finnish is a blessing and a curse. We have clean air and lots of beautiful nature. We have the sauna and The Santa Claus (=Joulupukki). Our school and health care systems are quite awesome. We don’t have to worry how to pay the tuition fees, simply because studying is free. We have a system…

Travel plans – a great way to waste your day off

I’ve been using a lot of time thinking about travel plans lately and started feeling like I should honestly think about something else for a while. I had a stage in my life when I stopped dreaming and wishing anything from my life, and now that I’ve gotten my ability to dream back, it’s taking…

The Story of My Life

I’ve always thought that I have to be realistic. Have to have goals that I can achieve, shouldn’t dream about nonsense which isn’t possible to make happen. I always thought if I silence my inner voice and follow some generally accepted path I will eventually find my peace. I searched my happiness in others and…
