Long time no see. Long time no sea.

Blogroll, Finland, Picture a day, Traveling

No, there was not much sea lately, partly due to me being abroad and around, partly ’cause the spring has not really broken out in here.


No, this is not Finland. Gotcha.

THIS, however, is. The picture is take about 3 weeks ago, the ambience prevails. The fence was full of wind-torn adverts, above all election posters.


But the sun shines even in the north, about 23 minutes per day. Such moments remind me of the extra long golden hours we get here in the summer…


… long time no sea? Time to travel to the archipelago then!


I admit the following pictures was taken by mistake. Makes a perfect background material for further projects though!


Dear burglars, we are in Lapland at the moment. Our flat is flat-sat though, so don’t get excited. Dear faithful readers, you can look forward to a lot of snow-covered pictures. It has been rather cloudy lately, so no winter wonderland I’m afraid.

Utö. The place of transition.

Blogroll, Finland, Traveling

Utö is the southernmost inhabited point in Finland – a small island of just under 1km2, reachable by (free of cost) ferry from Turku’s archipelago. In the past, some pretty large ships capsized in Utö’s vicinity and the locals have always bravely helped. And also it is where Finlands oldest lighthouse is located. And some meteorological and military establishments. And a tiny school and the cutest K-market in Finland.


The nature is breath-taking, the life pace is peaceful and very calming. It is a true place of transition – archipelago ecosystems, proximity to continental Europe, the obvious importance of the sea and sea traffic to the island, changeable weather. A perfect place to make decisions or celebrate rites of passage.









I felt truly in peace and energized after visiting, and I’m still kind of absorbing the whole trip, days after. Hardly I will ever forget the colours and tranquility…
