Here is my traditional article to celebrate the Land of a Thousand Lakes, a frozen land with a big heart, the place where I’m happy ❤
It’s not perfect, but there’s no other country where I would rather be 🙂

Here are a few pictures from this year that I haven’t published on the blog yet. The first ones are from Spring and Summer around Helsinki, while the latter are from Lapland in September. More articles are coming soon, but in the meantime, why not have a go at my latest piece, Ruska 2020: Pallas-Ylläs, if you haven’t yet? Welcome!

Happy 103rd birthday Finland! Hyvää itsenäisyyspäivää!

    1. Hi Kim, it’s good to see you here! Thank you very much for your kind words.
      It’s been a while I haven’t published anything new here, I’ve been working on all sorts of projects… including a new newsletter, which I’d like to encourage you to subscribe to, if you want (but you’ll see that in my latest post!).

      Take care ❤
