I've had so many issues with both my computer and my network here at home that I thought I was going insane. Still seems like I have some issues since some of these pictures aren't as sharp on here as they are on my computer so I apologise for that.




But at the end of last month I went to Stockholm to visit my family there. It's been years since I was last there so it was fun to go back now. Visited so many places, The Vasa Museum for example. It's this very old and big ship and the history behind it was amazing. Something that blew my mind was that there were about 450 people on that ship all the time but they only had one chef. Poor fella... 
The ship was so big that these pictures don't give justice to it.



We took a ferry boat over back to the old city and got to see the city from a water view. I must say that Stockholm is a really pretty town and the people there seem so nice and relaxed. No one was in a hurry or seemed stressed to be moving from point A to B, something we could learn from our neighbours




My cousin also showed us the tiniest sculpture of Stockholm, it wasn't a lot bigger than an Iphone. It's quite cute looking up on the moon and the stars. Dreaming away...




And as a big ABBA fan as I am we had to go to the museum as well. It was a dream come true for my inner 10 year old who played there music video DVD non stop all day and everyday. 



My heart is still so full from meeting so many family members, both old and new. We have such a big family and wish we would stay better in contact with each other. Met my cousin who I haven't seen since I was four years old. And after many health scares it just shows how precious family is and that you never really truly know how much time you have with it. Therefore this trip was really important to me and so happy I had the opportunity to go and see everyone.

It's been a long time coming... sorry for that! 

But here's my this weeks thursday tune ! I've been obsessed with this song ever since I heard it on the radio first time. 



Hope you enjoy it as much as I do !

I've always been a bad packer, meaning it takes me forever to pack and most times I end up packing waaaay to much. But I think that's a problem girls can relate to. So to make things easier for me to make sure I don't pack to much extra or end up forgetting something I make up a list of things I need. So as I'm packing for Stockholm I decided to share that packing list.    

    

  Clothes 
  • A couple of tops
  • 2-3 t-shirts
  • A pair of jeans

  • Underwear, socks etc.
  • Pyjamas 
  • Comfy shoes
  • Flats
    

  Essentials  
  • Passport + cash
  • Toothbrush
  • Make up + make up wipes 
  • Hair brush
  • Camera 
  • Travel battery

To do before 
  • Charge camera battery & travel battery

Midsummer


Hope everyone has survived their midsummer weekend. Mine was spent for most parts at work but I did have some time off in the evenings so that I could go watch the bonfires they light up here every year. 


Also got to see these amazing views. Finnish summer can be really pretty , when it's not pouring rain. 


Still have one work shift to do today and then I have some days off and during those days my dad and I are going to Sweden to see some family that live there. It's been years since I've last been there so it's going to be fun to go back. Plus it's been awhile since I've traveled with my dad so that will be fun to!

Road Trip


Monday was the most fun monday I've had in awhile. Two of my really good friends and I did a road trip to the southwest part of Finland, and it was so much fun. It took couple of hours to drive, with some stops at gas station and coffee runs, but it didn't feel that bad with all the old school tunes that we played. 


First we arrived at Naantali which is a cute small town just outside of Turku. There we walked around and took a couple of pictures before finding a place to have lunch at. 




The girls ordered a pitcher of Sangria of which I had a small taste but since I was the driver I stayed with soft drinks and water. 



It was so nice and warm that you could enjoy your lunch in the sun without a problem. It truly felt like summer, which it hasn't really felt yet. 



Since Moomin world is located just outside Naantali they had a shop full of Moomin stuff that we had to visit. I found a moomin keychain to my car keys and my friend found a gift for her boyfriend. 



After walking around for a bit we hoped back in the car and drove to this amazing small island outside of Naantali. It was so pretty to drive from one island to the other. We wanted to stop somewhere to enjoy the day so we found a small dirt road that had a beach at the end of. It wasn't big but worked fine for us to sit and chill for a bit. 







And to have a photo shoot ;) 


Then after that we drove another two hours to Hanko which is the most southern tip of Finland. There we walked around, eat and had some frozen yoghourt. After that it was time for a two hour drive back home, and it was nice to finally get back home after 14 hour long day of driving and walking around. 




The purpose of this trip was to spend some time with my best friend who soon leaves for a big adventure and I won't see her in three months. It's going to be hard to be away from each other but I know this is going to be a great learning experience for her as well as a dream job opportunity. Still sucks to be away from her since she'll be in a different country. Thankfully we live in 2017 and we have smartphones with whatsapp, snapchat and Skype. God bless smartphones !!
All in all it was the most fun I've had in awhile. With all the old songs that we sang along, laughed and danced to. The stories we shared and plans we made. Really needed a trip like that between work and waiting for the results from the schools I've applied to. 

It truly was the perfect summer day!

Some pictures from the past weeks (months). Visited the cherry tree park, which is located near us yet I've never visited there before. They had just started to bloom so it looked really pretty. 






Then it was time for the annual weekend trip to my friends cottage. And we were really lucky with the weather. It was so warm and nice. Even if most of us looked like cooked lobsters when we got home. 


One thing I absolute love about Finnish summer is that it's always bright during the night. This picture is taken around 2am. Every summer I'm blown away with this, and just how pretty our country is during the summer. 




Then it was time for my birthday ! Can't believe I'm already 22....where has time gone?! 
Mom , dad and I did a road trip to a couple of stores that are a bit further away from home and then drove the scenic road home and stopped here and there. 

Then later on two of my good friends came over and we enjoyed the evening sitting outside talking, drinking and laughing. 




Had one of the best days ever yesterday, I'll try to post about it tomorrow !

I've been having some time off from my blogg. Life has just been so hectic and I've been exhausted always after work. Also I've been thinking what I want this blogg to be about. Because a lot of times social medias show a different side than life actually is, and therefore I've been thinking that what I write about is genuine. It's important to me to stay true to myself and at times I felt pressured I had to write about certain things because I have a blogg. But I've come to realise that this is my blogg and I can write about what I want and have it look like me and not like society wants.

And now that I feel like I have more time I try to once again update more often! 

Sorry for the long wait.
