It Began From Budapest

In the end of May, I left for the second trip of this year, to interrail somewhere in Eastern Europe. This trip wasn’t as carefully planned as my SE Asia trip (and that wasn’t either so…) but I had bought an interrail ticket with 7 travel days within a month. So basically me with my…

Twists, Turns And Paradises Found In Indonesia

Many things went wrong on the last part of my trip, in Indonesia. Many things also went right and now when I think of Indonesia I see it as a very appropriate ending for my trip, and it somehow tied the journey together.

Unexpected Adventures In Malaysia

Malaysia was a funny thing. It was in my itinerary as just a short layover in Kuala Lumpur, between Thailand and Singapore but things happened. Around New Year’s, southern Thailand and its islands where I was supposed to go diving, was flooding. So it became clear pretty quickly that I couldn’t go there but since…

Uncovering Vietnam

Vietnam was the country that offered me probably the craziest two weeks of my entire trip, the good and the bad and the beautiful and the ugly. It’s not the easiest country to write about and I could just put some photographs here but no, Vietnam’s worth more.

A Little Treasure Called Laos

Probably the most common question I got after my trip was ”well what was your favorite place?” And answering that is just as impossible as it sounds. Instead I replied that the place I would first go again to would be Laos. Because I felt I saw a tiny glimpse of something absolutely amazing and largely…

Photo Diary From Chiang Mai

Well it’s been a loong, quite an eventful while. The last time I wrote was before I left for my Southeast Asia journey and now here I am, back in Finland, on my very own couch. Lots of things have changed over the past two months, biggest of them being me. There are hundreds of…

I’m Going On An Adventure!

Soo here we go. Ahh it’s been a long long time coming. Years in my dreams, months in the planning, weeks preparing and now one day away. As long as I can remember, I’ve had a thought that then when I’m done with school, I’ll just leave for a while, all by myself. Where? Asia….

Shots Of San Francisco

There are many ways to describe this amazing city but for me it was one long time dream come true. Ever since when I first saw pictures of the Golden Gate and shimmering sea yeeears and years ago I remember thinking that I just have to see that some day. And when lots of people when…

The New York Experience

There are places you wish to go to someday and then there are places you know that you need to go to. New York for me was one of the latter. I feel like I don’t want to write too much about it to not to spoil the whole thing but on the other hand…

I Graduated!

  Wow. I’ve been trying to think of things to say for a while but I just cannot quite get it right. I feel that some days in life are maybe a bit too big, or too unusual should I say, for words. That maybe they aren’t supposed to be talked about but maybe to…

Blueberry-Cardamom Raw Cake

Very rarely you can describe your life with one word but now I can: studying. That’s what it has been for over a month, 24/7, and FINALLY last week it came to an end. I’d like to say to a bittersweet end but it was basically just oh so sweet. So to all my fellow…

Vegan Pesto & Sesame Tofu Sandwiches

A lot has happened during these past two weeks! One minor thing for example, I finished high school! Well, practically at least. Total 12 years spent studying and now it’s all over. The final exams are coming of course but no more sitting in the lessons, early mornings etc. At least not for a while…
