Today, in the day of Thanksgiving, we are given an opportunity to have a moment to think about what we are grateful for. Instead of all bad news of the world and stressing about traffic and deadlines, our minds become full of good memories and beautiful details about our lives. Life is one big beautiful […]

The past week has been very tough mentally for me, as it’s been for the most of the world. Beirut, Paris, Bamako, Syria, Iraq… The list continues. ‘Why’ and ‘what next’ seem to be the questions in the air. In the western media, Paris was shown largely and Beirut seemed to be forgotten at the […]

The latest news, Finland presented its’ own national emojis. There is The Sauna, The Unbreakable (Nokia 3310) and The Headbanger emoji. According to this, I should be a naked headbanger rocking to my Nokia tunes in a sauna. Talking about stereotyping me. These emojis definitely put Finland on the map as a country. But do […]

I happened to read a blog post about travelling by an old good friend of mine, Minna Janhonen, She left an incredibly tough question in the end of the page; ‘What does travelling mean to you?’ When I lived close to Paris, I really loved all the metro and train trips – got some […]

Monday morning. Tiredness. Staying in bed and calling off sick feels so tempting. But through all that sleepiness you still smile.

It’s been a while that I haven’t been posting. For me this pause was most of all time to search something new in myself. I felt the need to understand me more, and through this process, simply get new power on sharing new stories again. The last sunrise I saw in 2013 I had awakening […]

“Instead of getting nostalgic, we should capture the power of good memories to create our future even memorable.” Last week I visited again my home town, Jyväskylä, in Central Finland. I had real luck with the specially nice weather according to the season, colourful trees and so much sun. Here are some pictures to feel […]

Last Friday, with three Italian friends of mine, we rented a car and hit the road towards the south of Germany, to explore the historical romantic road, ‘Romantische Strasse’. As human beings, we have a long history and there are many marks and monuments to remind us from the lived past. In general, we all […]

One detail that differs between cultures, is the speed of walking. I visited the museum of communication in Frankfurt am Main where you can among all the other things explore the speeds physically. The task was to walk a so-called ‘catwalk’ as normal as possible and see which country your speed matches. The first time […]

This past weekend, there was a big openair festival in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, where I’m based at the moment. Museumsuferfest, as it’s called, gathers the whole city and its visitors once a year by the river Main to enjoy last days of the summer and experience history, arts and different cultures through food, drinks, […]
