WANDERLUST
Even though fall was, at one stage of my life at least, my favorite season, longing for a sunny holiday in the autumn time usually is what ends up happening. Despite the fact that I enjoy my work and all the related everyday routines very much, a short vacation under the sun would be more than welcome. Vaikka syksy oli, jossain vaiheessa ainakin suosikkivuodenaikani, ja nautin suuresti työstäni sekä arkipäivän rutiineista, kuuluu lomalle haikailu syyssäillä kai asiaan. Kun ulkona sataa eikä hämärä väisty valon tieltä päivälläkään, olisi lyhytkin täsmäisku aurinkoon enemmän kuin tervetullut. Here I've collected some of my favorite travel-r ...

POSTCARDS FROM HANKO
Hey peeps. Here's another compilation of summery photos we shot while enjoying the lovely atmosphere in Hanko! Heippa! Tässä toinen kesäinen kuvapläjäys ihanalta Hangon retkeltämme, olkaapa hyvät. Even though peonies have held on as my absolute favorite flower for quite some time now, hydrangeas can be found on the well-deserved second position on the list (now would be a great time to make notes, M). Just look at these stunners! Vaikka pionit ovat pitäneet pitkään pintansa suosikkikukkinani, hortensiat ovat nousseet viime aikoina hyväksi kakkoseksi (nyt olisi sopiva kohta tehdä muistiinpanoja, M). Katsokaa nyt näitäkin sinisiä kaunott ...

EARTH LAUGHS IN FLOWERS
"Earth laughs in flowers" is a quote by an american poet called Ralph Waldo Emerson (I'm impressed if you've heard about this guy before). Looking at these pictures, I understand exactly what he meant and couldn't agree more. I'm not sure if you still remember my "Lavender fields forever" post I wrote you a couple of weeks ago, or not. Either way, these pictures were snapped the same day when we were drinving from the town of Valensole back to the blue coast, Côte d'azur that is. I think I'll remember these gorgeous sceneries for the rest of my life. It's still baking hot here in Finland, but we luckily managed to get our hands on a fan. And ...

BEAUTIFUL BOSCOLO
Well hello! I wanted to share some of these lovely pictures with you. The photos were snapped while we were waiting for our ride in the lobby of our hotel in Nice. Some of you, my dear readers, have asked me about the the specific itinerary of our roadtrip, and that's one thing I'm going to share with you in this post. Our trip started at the biggest city on the French Riviera. After spending three days exploring Nice, we rented a car to drive to Cannes and also stopped by the village of Antibes on our way the city of the famous film festival. While holding our base in Cannes, we paid a day visit to the lovely Saint-Tropez. From Saint-Tropez ...

MY MONACO
Our lovely after-work with friends ended up lasting longer than expected, which is why I didn't have quite enough time to write this Monaco-post yesterday. Nonetheless, now it's time to say goodbye to the beautiful lilliput state with these final pictures, I hope you enjoy! I've always been in love with hot food. When dining at any sushirestaurant, it's really not uncommon to find me asking for additional wasabi for two, maybe even three times. Monaco did impress us with many aspects, but the selection of Japanese restaurants wasn't one of them. Maybe it was just that we were tourists and thus not familiar with the best sushirestaurants. Täs ...

MARCHÉ AUX FLEURS
When in Nice, we visited the flower market (marché aux fleurs) the second day of us staying there. I guess you readers aren't overtaken by the fact that I couldn't resist snapping some pictures. Those piles of flowers were just too gorgeous! Toisen Nizza-päivämme ohjelmaan kuului vierailu paikallisilla kukkamarkkinoilla (marché aux fleurs). Torilla pysähdyimme ihailemaan toinen toistaan värikkäämpiä ruusukimppuja ja kukka-asetelmia, enkä tietystikään voinut vastustaa houkutusta kaivaa kamera laukun pohjalta. Tässä kuvaushetken lopputulos, olkaa hyvä! The flower market is situated on the street called Cours Saleya in the oldest part of N ...

NICE PHOTO DIARY
Here's the first part of my Nice photo diary. I simply love walking around with my Canon and shooting all the little details that catch my aesthetic eye. Tässä Nizzan kuvapäiväkirjani ensimmäinen osa. Nautin suunnattomasti kaupungin ihmettelemisestä kamera kainalossa, ja pienet, esteettistä silmää miellyttävät yksityiskohdat on aivan pakko pysähtyä tallentamaan filmille, tottakai. The second day we spent in Nice, we walked through the beautiful, legendary flower market, marché aux fleurs. I've actually thought about writing you a separate post about it! When visiting the city, don't skip walking to the hill situated in the eastern part of ...

BERLIN PHOTO DIARY – PART II
Blooming Berlin is stuck in my head, can't say that I'm happy to be in gloomy Finland again. Here's the second part of my photo diary. Captured in these pictures, you can find the best-known artwork of the Berlin wall. The painting with the presidents kissing is actually called "My God, help me to survive this deadly love". I loved Berlin, mostly because of its versatility. Berliinissä kevät oli niin paljon pidemmällä kuin Suomessa, ja varsinkin huonon vappusään uhatessa ikävä Keski-Euroopan kevääseen on kova. Yhden matkapäivistä vietimme puistopiknikillä t-paitasillaan, ja ehti jo tulla ihanan kesäinen fiilis! Tässä vielä toinen osa Berliin ...

BERLIN PHOTO DIARY – PART I
Hey peeps, I'm back. It's been so hectic for the couple of weeks, that I haven't updated the blog, which is about to change. Last week I started a new, exciting job. In addition to a new beginning career-wise, I've also moved, and as of yesterday, I'm officially a full-time Helsinki-citygirl. Onpa kiva palata muutaman hektisen viikon jälkeen tänne blogin pariin. Kahdessa viikossa onkin tapahtunut paljon. Berliinin reissun jälkeen olen ehtinyt aloittamaan uudessa työpaikassa, juhlinut lääketieteellisen tiedekunnan vuosijuhlia ja viettänyt aikaa muuttohommissa. Eilisestä alkaen olen ollut virallisesti Helsinki-tyttö ja 6 vuotta kestänyt pendla ...
