Addicted to writing guides

writing guides

Hello there!

If you are reading my other blogs, you may already know that I’m a huge writing guide addict. In fact, I have over 20 writing guides on my bookshelf and that’s a lot when you take in count that I bought the first guide roughly six months ago. These two books I bought from my recent Helsinki trip. The bookstore in there is a lot bigger when compared to my hometown so I could not pass the opportunity to get these books. Okay!? I don’t have a problem! I will someday read all these books. I promise…

So, am I the only one or has anyone else addiction of buying books? Or maybe buying something else “you totally need to have to make your life better”?

With love,
The Writer Viivi

Missing home

Uspenski CathedralHelsinki, Finland

Photo from Finland because even I miss home while traveling… Sometimes being new city, meeting amazing people and experiencing so many different things gets tiring. Sometimes you fall asleep in hostel hoping that you were back at home in your own bed. Traveling around the world is amazing but there is something different at home that all of us miss from time to time…

With love,

Museum Stickers

Travel Blog Helsinki

HELSINKI, FINLAND

Have you ever left your museum pass sticker to wall full of stickers? I have so many times that I can’t even count them. Not that much anymore but seeing these sticker walls reminds me of my childhood. We used to do family trips to museums and usually (at least in Finland) they “mark” you with this sticker after you have paid the admission. And then after people leave this museum they stick the sticker to somewhere near by.

These sticker walls have always enchanted me. Every sticker signifies different person who has visited the museum. Did they like it? Where they just dragged there by friend? Maybe they are regular visitor or someone from far far away. I have always loved museums and especially the fact that those artworks, historic things or whatever the museums exhibits will all these people who will never meet each others share this experience without them even realizing.  Happiness, sadness, pure excitement of learning new things or even getting bored to death. It just feels magical to me.

But now I will stop this odd rant and just let you enjoy the photo. My summer holiday just started officially so I hope I will have time to write my blogs more than before. If you haven’t already, follow my Facebook and official travel blog more random travel related posts like this.

Shadows & Reflections

Helsinki streets and buildings

I love looking at shadows and taking photos of them even if my photography skills aren’t good enough to make these photos beautiful. Well I’m improving so maybe someday I will take the perfect shadowy photo! Oh, and another thing I love that is a little easier to photograph is reflections in water like in that small pond in this photo.

Tourists in storm

Helsinki and storm

This Senate Square from Helsinki keeps so many of my happy memories in it. I have always been part of the group making the tourists wonder are Finns gone crazy. There have been flash mops I took part,  screaming, having fun and being normal young crazy Finn. I have once ended up in random couple’s wedding picture with Jedward mask on and probably to too many tourists’ photos doing some crazy shit.

This time when I visited I was just quietly observing. As twenty one years old I’m not as crazy anymore. But still the memories and seeing all the tourists here makes me smile. It also makes me miss some old friends and loves. Nostalgic.

The Lovely Art

interactive art museum kiasma colors

I love museums and I think I have mentioned that too many times in my blogs… But this photo really sums up why. Some people don’t realize how cool can art be. Usually we think art means old buildings full of even older paintings.

In reality art can mean colors, laughing until you can’t breath and finding peace inside of yourself. This art work was exhibited in Kiasma museum earlier this year. There was long line of people wanting to take nap in the comfy looking hammock things.

Easy Photos

Helsinki Uspenski Cathedral

Taking photos with the blue sky and clouds on the background is addiction of mine. Somehow these photos always turn out looking good! And I think it is the easiest target to photograph for beginner blogger. Buildings don’t move and blue sky doesn’t need a lot of editing.

I need holiday…

helsinki holiday

I’m not sure why I’m sharing this photo. It isn’t particularly beautiful nor interesting but maybe I’m just in need of holiday like the flag in this photo says. I didn’t remember how hard going to school can be so it really is driving me crazy. Holiday, I really need holiday… Well, at least I get to visit London for little while in two weeks…
