Week recap

Once again my life has been hectic with no time to update, work has been taking up most of my time and trying to have a social life is always hard when it feels all you're doing is working. 
It was also my dad's birthday here last week so we had a bunch of relatives from Sweden visiting so all the free time was spent with them. I must say our family is very interesting and never seems to stop amazing me. But I love everyone ! It was so nice to spend time with everyone who I haven't seen in years. Go shopping with my aunt and cousins child. Hear stories about my dad and his brothers when they were younger! Getting older has made me appriciate family and the time we spend together. 


Couple of pictures of my dad and I from his birthday dinner. Went to a restaurant you could see Helsinki and the railway station from. Never been there before but the food was absolutely delicious! Ravintola Loiste was the name of the place! Worth visiting! 
Also finally we had some girl group time and got coffees just like we used to! It's hard to try to spend time together when some friends are studying far away or hut busy with life in general, that's why I cherish these moments we get to spend together and catch up on things just like we used to. 


Also went to a Finnish design museum with my relatives. Always wanted to visit this museum but never had the time so I was excited to finally see it. They had a bunch of old Finnish furniture , couple of things I could buy to my own apartment. If they didn't cost around 4000 euros ! 
Also had some father daughter time here on Tuseday when we went to watch a football game. American style! One of my favorite sports to watch! Had to explain some details to my dad thou, but it was fun! 

I'll try to post more often, I have a couple of post ideas just need to fulfill them. So it's just not me talking about my life! But I'm starting at a new work place tomorrow and still unsure how many hours I have in total! Excited to start!

Yassas

Hello or as they say in greek Yassas! Finally I get some pictures loaded here. This post will consist of collages and then I'll do a separate post that'll have more nature pictures. There is still some of the pictures I need to fix a little bit with lightning and such.


First days were spent by laying at the pool and working on my tan. And eating some of the most amazing food. And drinking some really good house wine. Maybe a bit too much some nights, but oh so worth it. 


Like every time we always rent a car to drive around the island and to do just more than just lay around the pool. The first day we drove to Elafonisi which is one of the most beautiful beaches of Crete. But also super crowded so we didn't stay long. 



Then it was some shopping time in Chania. And because I'm the coffee addict I am, I had to get a coffee. A very interesting way to spell my name in greek. 


Some dinner clothing along with some of the largest water melons I've ever seen in my life. And they were just 45 cent per kilo! That's nothing. Also I have to explain the shot glas. It's milk. I was sitting at the bar during the evening and was joking with the bartender he should pour me a shot of milk, which to my surprise he did and to his surprise I drank.  Just one of the many funny evenings spent in that pool bar. 


One of the last days we finally got to a place my dad and stepmom had told us to visit many times. Loutro was the name of the place and you had to take a boat/ferry there cause there aren't any roads there. It's this very tiny white town with the most clear water I've ever seen in my life. Just amazing! Definitely a place worth visiting, if it's just for the day or the weekend doesn't matter.  


And to this sunrise I left with a bittersweet feeling once again the place I hold dear.

Bear with me

Gaahh, I'm so late with my posts again. I was going to do a bunch while I was in Greece but the connection there was so bad that nothing really worked. So now I'm going to try to post a bunch different posts from my trip. I was planning on doing this too earlier but I've been super busy and tired with and after work that I haven't had the energy to do anything. But now I decided that I have to get back on track with my posts ! So be expecting posts during the weekend !
