kuva. Nyt olisi luvassa taas lämpimiä ja aurinkoisia talvimatkakohteita lumeen/pimeyteen väsyneille. Ei välttämättä tarvitse matkustaa maailman toisellepuolen kevät/kesäsäätä kokeakseen, mutta tässä useita eri vinkkejä: Barbados, saari Karibialla jossa Rihanna vietti lapsuutensa. Saarelta löytyy nyt myös Rihannan mukaan nimetty Rihanna Drive katu. Barbados on hurrikaanivyöhykkeen ulkopuolella, joka on hyvä tietää. Englannin kuningatar hallinnoi tätäkin saarta. Saaren...

Normal 0 21 false false false FI X-NONE X-NONE The sun came out since we last talked. She still stays very low above the horizon, but as her delicate, shy rays hit my dusty rooms, I was shocked. I threw myself into cleaning mode. The temperature has been way down, -30ºC during some of the days. It is too cold to stay outside much, so there has been lots of time to clean. I am not nearly done yet, and not sure for how long I am inspired to keep going, but let’s hope lots gets done. This...

Ajattelin tehdä koosteen parhaiksi koetuista asioista matkoillani kuten parhaat kahvilat, kauneimmat maisemat, paras ruoka, sää jne. Aloitetaan paras kesäsää : tämän voiton vie Välimeren maat. Kesällä voi olla kuuma +40C Italiassa mutta sittenpähän tarkenee ainakin uida. Italian sää sopii minulle, helle ja kevyt tuulenvire. Italiassa on usein paljon puiden varjostamia kujia, joilla on heti hieman viileämpää kuin suorassa auringonpaisteessa ja antaisin myös siitä plussaa...

Pitkään on jo mieleni tehnyt kirjoittaa Oulun brunssivaihtoehdoista, vaati näköjään vain muutaman vuoden, että sain ensimmäisen tekstin ulos. Brunssi on ehkä kokenut pienen inflaation. Tai sitten se ei vain enää ole uusi, hypetettävä juttu tai pakollinen osa jokaisen itseään kunnioittavan ja ajan hermolla olevan kaupunkilaisen viikonloppurutiineja. Porukkaa brunsseilla kuitenkin tuntuu edelleen käyvän. Se on arkipäiväistynyt. Viime viikonloppuna kävimme Puistolassa...

Blue 1 Blue 2 Blue 3 The photographs were taken at Juvanmalmi industrial area on December 23rd. It was cold this morning, -12 °C, but I didn't get too cold while commuting by bicycle. The new back tire is narrower than the old one, with just 106 studs instead of 240, but it has been good enough. In some places there has been ice underneath the snow on the street, and it has been rather slippery, but I haven't fallen yet. (Posting title is from the poem Sweet Tooth by Russell Edson.)

The Forever War is a great novel by Joe Haldeman , but it's also what several national security professionals have come to call either the US war in Afghanistan, or the "war on terror" in general. And for good reason: the US went to war with the Taleban on October 7 2001, almost seventeen years ago as I write this. Depending on which casualty estimates you want , tens to hundreds of thousands of people have been killed. President Trump has escalated the war , increasing air strikes and sending...

im back from Helsinki. i feel like my body is absolutely shattered, traveling with crutches was a bad idea. i basically had painkillers for lunch when i got home. so it was a controversial week, super rough physically which is tiring (to the point where ive cried and was close a few times), but also rewarding. besides work, my motivation to go was to attend Arttu's 40th birthday party. both were great. so, in a way it was definitely worth it, but i wouldnt repeat it - i am definitely staying...

Me and my other half had our 5th anniversary yesterday so in honor of that I painted my lips red and put a pencil skirt on. Can't believe it's already our 5th year together, this time flies madly and it scares me.    It happened to be a day off so I was free to spend the day like I wanted. We ended up going to have drinks to a local sky bar (I like high places and I could stare at the horizon forever). After beverages we picked up pizzas and watched The Damned documentary which was fun and...

Kuva. Vaikka matkailu on kivaa, matkahaikeus ei. Uusien kohteiden näkeminen on mahtavaa, mutta se ei kun tuntuu että jotain jää käsken kun lähtee pois vaikka mitään ei jää kesken. Kun menin Italiasta Saksaan heräsin yhden kerran todella pettyneenä sateeseen. En nähnytkään enää samoja aurinkoisia maisemia ja aurinko vaihtui viileisiin talvisateisiin kuten kaikki muukin vaihtui aina kielestä kulttuuriin ja ruokiin. Usein totun tällaisiin muutoksiin samantien, mutta tällä...

Snow 1 Snow 2 The photographs were taken in Vaakkoi on December 6th. There was 16 hours of sunshine at Helsinki-Vantaa airport in December, 2017, and there were several places in Finland where the sun was always hidden behind clouds in daytime. A dark month indeed.

I was off yesterday and what a wonderful winter day it was (like it was also today). Right after a cup of morning coffee, I took my camera and headed out to capture landscapes pictures. I didn't plan a route beforehand, I just walked ahead and found some new places, worth of pictures. Eventually after two hours my fingers were so frozen that I needed to return home and twist the fingers around a hot tea mug. I would have wanted to wander more outdoors, but it's always the same story, the...

Wet 1 Wet 2 The photographs were taken on December 4th at the Haltiala nature protection area north of Paloheinä in Helsinki. The weather is now rather like winter, temperature at -2 °C, and some sunshine to be expected during the day. There is even a little bit of snow in some places. I'm planning to go for a long walk in Sipoonkorpi national park. (Posting title is from the poem in the general conservative cast by kari edwards.)

kuva . Tykkään lukea matkavinkkejä ja niihin kuuluu myös hyttysasiat: mitä ja missä. Kirjoitan tämän siksi jos tästä voi olla hyötyä. Pitääkö hyttysten levittämien tautien takia jättää matkustelu tietyissä kohteissa? ei, mutta voi ottaa asioista selvää. Ensiksi kannattaa katsoa onko se unelmiesi matkakohde punaisella malariakartalla. Aikaisemmin vielä 60-luvulla malariaa oli myös Euroopassa esim. Italiassa ja viime vuosina ollut myös Kreikassa. Kreikan risteilyllä en...

... and thank you for the past year! Thank you for reading and commenting, I love to share my crafts with you. Yesterday, while cleaning away some of the Christmas stuff, I could not help myself but already skipped ahead in my mind towards the spring. Then I counted all the weeks until spring and realized how long the wait would be if I started thinking of the spring already – the snow won’t be gone before April if we are lucky, not before May if not so lucky. I would then miss these...

Snow 1 Snow 2 The photographs were taken on December 1st. This morning I walked for two hours at Niipperi, exploring the nature protection area. There was a little bit of snow still left in some places, but the ground was soaking wet, and the ditches were flooding. (Posting title is from the poem The Benefactors by Rudyard Kipling.)

A few more picture from Yule time. As you can see it was a fairly drab weather and not at all dreamy white as it should be. I was hoping to get the snow, but what I got was tears from the sky. But okay, I like to admire this dead nature through a lens. White Christmas is rare on this latitude these days, but sometimes it happens, but most often it looks like this.  I'm so in love with the granny hat and white collars. An outfit from the first Yule day.   I found an ancient horseshoe. It's...

Snow The photograph was taken on November 26th. Snow has been melting away due to rain. Only about 3 cm is remaining, and in many places none. And more rain is in the weather forecast for the next two days. This morning I walked for 2 3/4 hours at Kytäjä-Usmi outdoor are in Hyvinkää, 50 km north of Helsinki. There was plenty of snow, 10-20 cm. It was quiet. I didn't meet any other people walking even though there were some tracks in the snow. (Posting title is from the poem Tooth Painter by...

I've set this post to go out automatically on Christmas day, so as not to spoil the surprise (in the unlikely event that my nieces actually read this blog). Don't worry, I'm not sat at my computer right now! My nieces were thrilled with the broomsticks I made for them four years ago, and they are still avid Harry Potter fans. They are members of Pottermore, and have been sorted into their houses: Slytherin, and Ravenclaw. The eldest is just starting University, so I thought a Slytherin-themed...

Tänään 11-12 osallistumme Rauman kirkossa hautajaisiin, joissa maan multiin saatellaan seurakunnan kirkkoherra Barthollus Rajalenius. On vuosi 1704. Rauman kirkkoherran virkaan hänet oli vihitty 1-5 vuonna 1683.   Jo Turun aikanaan mies oli aiheuttanut runsaasti hämminkiä. Turun tuomiokapitulin pöytäkirjamerkintä vuodelta 1700 kertoo, että 4. elokuuta kapituli joutuu lopulta pidättämään juopottelevan kirkkoherra Barthollus Rajaleniuksen virastaan. Kirkkoherra valittaa tuomiosta...

Matkakooste käydyistä kohteista 2017 ja juttua myös suosituimmista jutuista. Keväällä kävin Saksassa. Näin Würzburgin historiallista keskustaa, joka on ehkä hienointa Bavariassa. Kävin uudestaan Wienissä, mutta vastassa oli taas tympeä asiakaspalvelu ja sain vatsataudinkin viikoksi. Tosin moikkaavat hevosvaunujen kuljettajat ovat ok. Sitten otin junan Bratislavaan , joka oli rennompi ja miellyttävämpi kohde minua kohtaan. Siellä näkyi hienoa arkkitehtuuria, linna kukkulalla ja...

Hei, paluu arkeen eilisen juhlinnan jälkeen. Olin n. 10.000 muun ihmisen kanssa sulloutunut seuraamaan Vesiurkunäytöstä ja ilotulitusta, Pikku - Veskulla, Lahdessa. Ohjelmassa oli Porilaisten marssi, Finlandia ja Maamme-laulu - ja kruunuksi huikea ilotulitus. Sitten seurasi se ruuhkan purkaminen, mutta onneksi ehti kotiin ennen "kättelyn" alkua!  Hi, photos from Finland's 100th Independence Day's Event at Lahti; coloured water organs with Finlandia hymn and national songs. Famous Lahti...

Leaves The photograph was taken on November 4th. This morning the temperature was -7 °C when I started riding the bicycle, but it warmed up during the day to 1 °C. In the afternoon it started snowing, but that will turn into rain during the night. In the beginning of this week I did some repairs to the bicycle. The rear tire had got badly worn. Earlier I have written here how good the Schwalbe Marathon Winter tire is, but it turns out there is a big drawback: they are not durable. When I...

That night the Company was again summoned to the chamber of Celeborn, and there the Lord and Lady greeted them with fair words. Celeborn and Galadriel tell the Fellowship that it's about time they cleared out, and offer each of them the choice of heading onward or going back home. It's a good point: in War of the Ring , this can be a good moment to split off some companions from the Fellowship, especially if you've got an event card like There and Back Again. This time, however, everyone stays...
