Laurin matkablogi -

We have just returned from a two-week holiday in the Philippines. Statistically speaking 15 days, 7 flights, 6 hotels, +30 degrees, 12 sunny days, 0 sick days! It was much needed and long awaited for, since we hadn’t had a rest longer than a week for 11 months. We started off with a relaxing stay […]

This was a long and an interesting journey. I have contemplated crocheting a cardigan for myself for a very long time and I am not sure just how many times I have started one. Every single one has ended up in a frog pond and this was a close call too. There were many issues along the way, I had doubts until the very end. My main concern all the time was the drape; what if I end up having a very stiff piece of clothing. I did a swatch but as we know, swatches don’t always tell the whole truth...

View 1 View 2 The photographs were taken on October 15th. I commuted by bicycle on four days this week, and got eight hours of exercise. The weather has been dry. I have been riding the bicycle through the central park in Helsinki, as the paths are no longer so muddy. I met a horse this morning, which was a nice start for the day.

The web page for the Commission Work Programme 2018 (CWP 2018) offers access to the communication, the five official annexes and additional documents, but at this stage mainly in the three internal working languages of the Commission (English, French and German). At this point in time, the language choice is no wider if we access the official documents through the legal portal Eur-Lex. However, let us fetch the exact reference there: Commission Work Programme 2018: An agenda for a more united...

View The photograph was taken on October 7th. The bicycle commute takes now 10 minutes longer than in the summer, 50 minutes or more, due to studded winter tires and the clothing one needs to wear in cold weather. In the morning there was some headwind. The wind got stronger, and in the afternoon I had up to 16 m/s backwind, which was rather nice. The weather forecast promises show for tomorrow, up to 15-20 cm, and strong wind. I started installing winter tires to the car yesterday after work...

Interesting new design tasks have come up recently. I wish I could talk about them already, but I must keep a lid for a little longer. New furniture and new design products. That much I can tell. I will share the details also here as soon as things are launched on media.

Sutkautuksia -

Viikko oli syyslomaviikko, jolloin sain nauttia laatuaikaa poikien kanssa. Kävimme mm. syömässä yhdessä poikien kanssa läheisessä pizzeriassa ja pojat pääsivät myös elokuviin, lisäksi harrastukset pyörivät entiseen malliin. Pojat saivat myös nauttia sekä isän että isovanhempien seurasta, joten kivasti jakautui syyslomaviikon ohjelma. Jotain haikeaa tässä viikossa myös oli, kun tajusin, että hitaat aamut pitkine koiralenkkeineen, leppoisa äiti ja pojille aamuisin tehdyt...

After the 18 October 2017 tripartite social summit the president  Donald Tusk offered an optimistic view on the role of the European Council (EUCO) for the future of Europe in general and the deepening of the economic and monetary union (EMU) in particular: From all quarters, there is now a new willingness to energise and enrich our work, draw on new ideas, maintain our unity and increase the dynamism of the EU. I will be calling on leaders to work together according to a strict timetable on...

Susannas Travels -

Hidasta matkailua juttua slow travel -ilmiöstä johon kuuluu yhdessä (tai muutamassa) kohteessa ajan vietto pidempään. Hidas matkailu on myös hieman ekologisempi matkavaihtoehto, koska siinä ei lennetä jatkuvasti ympäriinsä kuten nopeassa matkailussa usein. Bloggaaja Julia Guerra kirjoittikin aiheesta hyvin "suosin hidasta matkailutyyliä. Jokainen kohde on uniikki ja odottaa löytäjäänsä. Olemalla siinä kohteessa opit tuntemaan sen paremmin. Jotkut majoitukset antavat alennuksen...

Pulpetti -

I had a one-week holiday in the first week of September. I though I was going to read some crime novels that were sitting on my Kindle. Well, yeah, I did, but it took longer than a week. I read Barry Malzberg's first Lone Wolf novel, Night Raider , written as by Mike Barry (forgot to blog about it) and then I read W. Glenn Duncan Rafferty's Rules (about which I blogged here ). I also started Lawrence Block's old sleaze title, Sex Without Strings , but it didn't seem interesting enough (no crime...

Kuvanveistäjän arkitodellisuus -

   Kalle Mustonen is a Finnish contemporary artist who reimagines modern culture in monumental and mythic terms, as in his intriguing large-scale wooden sculptures with shed-like interiors that visitors are often invited to peek into. The Gnome King series is based on stories from European folklore and recalls a certain variety of garden ornament. It also references a darker ecological and political message.      I met and worked with Kalle in 2004 in Orivesi, Finland, and immediately knew...

October! The month changes and the sun says 'K bye!' and we get Halloween-ish storms in an instant. Not that I am complaining per se; I have big shawls and red wine and berets and turbans to cover my hair with. But here's a throwback to an planned-but-unposted  (applies to 99%of the photos on my memory card since 2016...) day and it's outfit  from summer when I wore a turban in much more sunnier weather: This summer I have been filming a thing that, for the first time in a long time allowed...

'Alas! I fear we cannot stay here longer,' said Aragorn. The Fellowship is in Dimrill Dale, mourning Gandalf. They head east, hoping to escape the orcs, and do a little desultory sight-seeing as they pass the Mirrormere. When they strike the Silverlode river, Aragorn explains his intention to head along it to the elven-woods of Lothlórien. As they trek along, the wounded Frodo and Sam fall behind. Luckily Legolas notices, and Aragorn calls a halt so their injuries can be tended to. Frodo...

Kuusijärvi CX race in 2015. You and I most likely share one trait. It usually leads to a certain – and inevitable for most of us – training mistake that Joe Friel , the author of The Cyclist's Training Bible describes in this way: "This may be the most common mistake cyclists make. Nearly everyone who is even slightly serious about training ends up doing it sooner or later. (...) They learned at an early age that hard work produces results. So when things are going well, they work hard...

Are you a Strava user? Did you know that linking your account to Relive.cc will produce recaps like above? I just found out how to embed these to Blogger (as there is no ready-made method available): embed a Youtube video but change the video link to an MP4 link that you'll find on the Relive page source. Then replace the Youtube content to the one you copied from Relive. My second ride on the green island began with the Woodstown climb up to the summit again. It's such a nice uphill to ride...

Wherever I ride, I want to find a bike shop and something local as a souvenir. In Tallaght I visited Cycle Superstore. It is a big place, covering everything from MTB to eBikes, from tools to rainwear. I didn't find anything of particular interest, and the price level wasn't any cheaper than in Finland. For my Taiwan ride I got a 2 LED front light  weighing only 15.7 gram. Tiny, and yet it seems to provide ample light (80 lumen) for an hour, or a dimmer beam for a longer ride. Another nice...

Nunnaluostarin kasvimaan reunalta. At the vegetable garden of a nunnery . Satamasta. Joku on majoittunut tänne . In a warf. Somebody lives here. Viitta osoittaa asuntoveneelle. Signaling a boathouse. Kerrostalo. Condominium. Toinen kerrostalo puutarhan pikkulinnuille. Another condo for small birds. Yhteisöllisyyttä lisäävää kirjojen kierrätystä. Swapping books surely contributes to a sense of community. Ei vain koristeellisuuden vuoksi. Not only a decoration. En ole ulkokoristeiden...
