Beach weak continues!

Rovaniemi, Finland

The second day of beach week!
And even then my photo isn’t of a traditional sand beach. This is how most beaches in Finland look like. Forest all around clear blue water (or in most cases dark dirty water). I took this photo while in university exams in Finnish Lapland. It’s so funny to think that just a few years ago I was ready to start studying and giving my life for a school. Right now my days are full of writing and doing whatever I WANT.

Despite the life change, Rovaniemi keeps calling me back. The city is lovely but small like most Finnish cities. The nature of Lapland just seems so beautiful. I have once visited there during autumn colors but it was years ago. Maybe I will return next year, year after that or someday in the far away future.

Have you ever visited Lapland?

With love,

Walking into blogger’s dreams

Blogger in Harry Potter world

The Making of Harry Potter, London, UK

Hello all dream catchers!

The photos above should say all. I visited Diagon Alley with my sister while we went for our London adventure. If you don’t know what’s Diagon Alley just stop reading and continue to somewhere else please. For Harry Potter fans, isn’t this like a dream come true?

I grew up with Harry Potter books and movies. The reading bug bit me after reading the first Harry Potter book. I can still remember how I read every other chapter by myself and my parents read the other chapters for me and my sister. I could almost imagine myself living in a world like this: magic, battles between powers, and of course adventures so unbelievable. Even then my soul graved for different places or worlds far far away…

Straight from her childhood memories,
Lost Viivi

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.

Memories of Fangirl

Senate Square Helsinki Finland

SENATE SQUARE, HELSINKI, FINLAND

My favorite tourist attraction in Helsinki is definitely Senate Square. I just have so many good memories from here. Being young and reckless. Taking part to flash mob. Traveling around Finland for the first time without my family. Meeting cool friends for the first time. Living life to the fullest…

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.
