My first journey up north, (further north than Kiel in Germany that is).  Spending 10 days in Finland was such an amazing experience: exploring Helsinki with my Finish friend Peppi, a day trip to Estonia, hiking in national parks and cruising around the Archipelago on a speedy boat. Helsinki as a city is just beautiful, packed with cool cafés and inspiring people, cute boutiques, restaurants, museums Рand so, so much water everywhere. So here is to my first time up North, my great Finnish host and nordic summers spent on a boat.

A city guide with all the best places you shouldn’t miss is coming up soon.160824_100-6helsinki-002160820_100-43160820_100-49Helsinki’s Design District is packed with cute shops. One advice: don’t go if you’re having a hard time not being able to buy things because you thought travelling light is a good idea and only travel with hand luggage. helsinki-001160820_100-50 160820_100-46 I asked and I think it says something to convince you to come in. And again, facing all those beautiful Finish little things wasn’t easy – thanks to an¬†abundance of cute¬†notebooks, too-nice-to-use tea towels and other white, cool, minimalistic stuff.160820_100-45 160820_100-56160820_100-54

Also, having worked on my new blog for weeks and weeks now, a super big thanks to Paul for his help with setting the whole thing up and moving all my old posts to wordpress, and Carolina for the beautiful design. I am so happy how it turned out and also, SO ready to go a little bit more professional and make this blog my main project again – next to reading Foucault and learning about Neurons but oh well…

You can still access my old blog on blogspot but I felt like it was time for a big change. ¬†Suuuper excited to hear your feedback so please let me know what you think of it! There are still some things to be adjusted and changed and a portfolio might follow soon as well but it’s a start.
