Been ages since the last post again but I'm not even sorry. My life's been as busy as always but I'm enjoying it and here's a little sneak peak into what I've been up to! Siitä on taas ikuisuus, kun viimeksi postailin, mutten ole edes pahoillani. Elämäni on ollut yhtä kiireistä, kuin tähänkin asti ja nautin siitä. Tässä nyt kuitenkin pieni kurkistus siihen, mitä viime aikoina on tapauhtunut!7 things that made me happy lately:7 asiaa, jotka ovat tehneet minut onnelliseksi viime aikoina: 1....

As the title already says, I've lived in Scotland for more than a month and I'm loving it. I have been extremely busy again but I just feel like the more I do the more energy I seem to find and so on I keep exceeding my own expectations over and over again. I barely sit down to just look at my laptop and I've noticed I don't spend that much time on social media either. And I still warmly welcome this change. Kuten otsikkokin jo vihjasi, olen asunut nyt Skotlannissa reilun kuukauden ja rakastan...

It's Saturday again and another weekend and I know I'm probably the worst at keeping my blog up to date. So yes, here we go - a few photos from the last weekend I spent in Paisley. Paisley locates just outside of Glasgow and regardless of it having a reputation of being an unsafe place crowded by alcoholics and drug addicts I liked it. It wasn't what I expected at all but more like a cozy small town, a welcome change to either spending my time on campus or in the city. Jälleen lauantai ja uusi...

My blog reached 100 registered followers in blogger (thank you, and thanks to everyone following me through other social medias as well!) a while ago and I thought it could be nice to do something a bit different to celebrate this milestone. However I couldn't come up with anything entirely original so I decided to go with a traditional Q&A post. So if someone doesn't know how it all works, here are the instructions: Leave a comment down below and ask as many questions as you like. It can be...

I've been living in Edinburgh for a few weeks now so not that long at all. However I have already made my mind: it's an absolutely stunning place. And what's better than amazing views over the city? Or more like over the hills and far away? And that's why I decided to share these three spots to admire the city. They are all worth it, at least if it's a sunny day, even though one of them definitely beats the other two. Olen asunut Edinburghissa muutaman viikon ajan, en edes vielä pitkään siis....

I've been living in Edinburgh for two weeks now. Those two weeks have passed by quicker than I ever though they would and I can say I've been busy. So busy that I haven't been opening my laptop or if I have it has been to check my school related emails or timetables. Writing my blog has been just a distant thought somewhere in the back of my mind but for the first time in ages it doesn't bother me that I'm not posting more than once a week. It's not that I don't love sharing things here but...

Freshers week and so the first week in Edinburgh are pretty much behind. I've been busy but I've also had time to relax. I've bought a bath rug for my bathroom and I've attended a few inductions and other activities including those icebreaker games you used to play in primary school. I've made a few friends already, and I've attended Ceilidh - the event that includes traditional songs and Scottish dancing. It was the most fun I've had for a while followed by a few drinks in our student bar that...

I'm sitting in my dorm room and I just finished unpacking my bags. It starts looking like I can live here for the next nine months. I'm sharing my kitchen with four other people - there might be one more joining us sometime this week but no one really knows. They all seem to be nice, my Latvian friend, plus a British guy and a Polish guy. Istun asuntolani huoneessa, sain juuri laukkuni purettua. Alkaa näyttää siltä, että voin asua täällä seuraavat yhdeksän kuukautta. Jaan keittiöni neljän muun...

Most of you probably guessed it - no, I'm not in Riga but I've been there a couple of years ago. One more Throwback Thursday post. Back in 2015 I had a summer job in Germany and on the way home we had quite a few hours to spare between our flights from Munich to Riga and from Riga to Helsinki. As one of my good friends is Latvian and actually from the capital city we decided to head there with her and I have to say it was the best decision we could have made! Useimmat teistä varmaan...

Before we start I have to give credit to Jasmin from herFairly Globalblog. She made a similar kind of list last year in her previous blog and I liked the idea so much that I wanted to do something similar myself (but please, go and give her blog a read - she's inspiring!). So here we go: blogs of young Finnish expats. Anything and everything from au pairs to exchange students and university students studying abroad. Note that most of the blogs are in Finnish and I think my fellow Finns are the...

Likely to the last two Thursdays it's time for another Throwback Thursday post. This time I'll just share a few photos from our trip to Cyprus back in 2015. I wrote quite a few posts about this trip back when it took place already but for some reason I never got to publish these photos from this amphitheatre called Kourion (if I did my research right) and I have to say I didn't remember how beautiful the ocean view was. It was the first amphitheatre I ever visited and I have to admit I haven't...

I was supposed to publish this post yesterday but never made it to choosing photos and proofreading this. I had a lovely weekend with my family and friends, doing this and that, and driving around a lot. Being busy and not spending more than just a few minutes online here and there is sometimes the best thing to do. But here we go anyway, a few thoughts about moving to Edinburgh in just a little less than two weeks time! Tarkoitukseni oli julkaista tämä postaus jo eilen, mutta en koskaan...

Similarly to last week I wanted to publish a Throwback Thursday post again. This time we're talking about New Zealand's North Island and one of it's popular tourist destinations, Rotorua. A place where lots of backpackers go, a home for numerous hot springs, and lots of activities. But well, I didn't like it that much. Viime viikkoiseen tapaan halusin julkaista tänäkin torstaina Throwback Thursday -postauksen. Tällä kertaa puhutaan Uusi-Seelannin Pohjoissaaresta ja yhdestä sen suosituista...

Exactly three weeks to go and I'll be moving to Scotland. I've got a lot of people asking me to write more about moving abroad: how it feels and how I've been preparing, what do you need to take in to consideration. So without further explanations: what have I already done and what still needs to be sorted out? This post can work as a "to do" list for myself as well! Tasan kolmen viikon päästä on edessä muutto Skotlantiin. Useampi ihminen on toivonut, että käsittelisin muuttoa hieman...

As it's Thursday what is more suitable than a traditional Throwback Thursday post? Even though my life isn't as travel concentrated right now as it used to be I still feel like I want to keep the travel theme going on in my blog. I've never wanted to categorize myself tightly as a travel blogger but more like a travelish kind of lifestylish blogger if I say so. This being the case I don't want to stop sharing wonderful places, amazing moments, and hard realities of travel with you even when my...
