TRAVEL


This week me and my friend enjoyed a mini vacation in Tallinn. I think Tallinn is a very nice city, especially the old town is my favourite. Tallinn offers great shopping and cheap booze, what could be better? Unfortunately the weather was not on our side so we mostly stayed indoors, however it was a really nice trip. Got to relax a bit from all the stress and plan our future trips... Some good stuff coming!

P.S. Sorry for complete death on this blog, I promise to do better. I have seriously been so crazy busy lately that there has been no time for anything extra.

Hello!
How is it Sunday again? Lately, it feels like time is moving faster and faster forward. This week I booked flight tickets to Paris to see one of my best friends. Can't wait!

Keeping it short today due to massive hangover!

Today I got some awesome news! I’m going for exchange in Montréal next fall!

I couldn’t be any happier. Can’t believe I actually get to go to the city I wanted. I started crying my eyes out at work when I got the good news. Such a great day today! As I wrote earlier I have already lived in Montréal in 2013. I love Canada and find it super exiting to return with a completely different agenda then before. Without expectations, I know that it’s going to be awesome.

FOOD


Today my friends and I enjoyed a classic Sunday brunch.

Lately I been visiting quite a few brunch places in Helsinki to sort out the good from the bad ones. I thought it would be perfect to share these experiences with you. This time it was time to try out Story in Kamppi. Must say my expectations where quite high, as I have watched my friends snap and post pictures of this place. I took a juice + coffee + omelette and avocado toast and the price was 23,80. I have to say I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either. Probably won’t go here again. The prices were quite high if you compare to other places, plates where small and all foods needed a bit of salt. I’ll give it a 2/5.

Sorry, for turning this into a food blog. Haven't really had time for much else besides my thesis deadline. Lately, however I have become crazy addicted to DIY things! Starting next week, I will start posting one tip a week.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Hola!

Time for the second Barcelona post. It's nice to look back at such good times during these crazy busy days managing exams, my thesis, extra activities and work. I wanted to share my 3 food favourites from this trip.

First and foremost, Brunch and Cake it is simply unbelievable. There is two of these brunch places in Barcelona and I really recommend you visit. We both took berry smoothies and cafe mochas, in addition I took an avocado sandwich and Jenny took some sort of bagel. It was so damn good. There were so much different things to try, next time I would definitely take a Chia Bowl and have a piece of their Oreo cake.

Secondly, I would say tapas, I can't recommend a specific place to go to, but tapas in Barcelona is simply a must! Lovelovelove it! Here pictured a mixed plate of tapas. We both stated that we would hate the fish part in it, but surprisingly it turned out to be our favourite in the plate. So be bold, try out different things but avoid too touristic-mainstream places (e.g. don’t go to PaTapas worst tapas ever FYI).

Finally, my favourite food experience from this trip was MissSushi. It is a lovely pink restaurant with all kinds of special sushi for example sushi with tortillas on top and some dessert sushi’s with Nutella. We tried some of the specialities and my favourite was the ones with crispy crust.

Sorry this clearly became a post solely of food, but it was simply too delicious not to share.

Barcelona just keeps on amazing me. It is one of my favourite cities in Europe, if not the even the best of all. Big city life mixed with that beach holiday spirit – a perfect combination for me. My trip was amazing, my darling friend Jenny had organised all kinds of activities for us. We went to brunch, I got my nails done, we walked around, shopped, ate good food, went out partying and even had time to go to the movies. So much going on. I love to make the most of short vacations.

My favourite things about Barcelona is the closeness of the sea and that beautiful harbour feeling with all the nice boats. I noticed that from Airbnb you can even rent a boat in the harbour to stay in! Need to try that next time I visit. I highly recommend walking by the sea and just looking at all the beautiful places. My favourite view of the city and the sea is at night time looking down from Eclipse. The city has a somewhat unique variety. The architecture is for sure one of the highlights in visiting the city, e.g. Sagrada Familia, Casa Batllo and Placa Reial. In addition, I love the touch to Spanish culture. Even if Barcelona is filled with tourists you can still enjoy typical Spanish things by going to the markets, eating tapas and drinking a class of sangria, what could be better than that? You also get to practise your Spanish skills, so thats always a plus!

My trip was a solid 5/5, the only bad thing was the cloudy sky because I kept missing the clear blue skies and sunshine. I will post another post about Barcelona soon, so stay tuned and P.S. From now on I will be posting always on Sundays and of course if inspired even more often, but if you keep on checking my blog be sure to do it on a Sunday!

Hello!

I'm currently in Barcelona enjoying a mini vacation. One of my good friends is here on exchange and I thought it was the perfect time to visit one of my favorite cities in Europe again.

More coming soon!

I’m currently sitting in class dreaming about traveling, and even moving abroad. Luckily I will be off on my next trip this Thursday! Can’t wait!

Today I wanted to write about three places I could imagine myself living in.

First and foremost New York, if I ever get the chance to live there I would consider myself lucky. In my opinion New York is the best city in the whole world, it has everything you could ever imagine to offer and diversity, which I love. There is always something new to see, a new store, neighbourhood or restaurant. How could you ever be bored there? On the downside it will be pretty expensive living there, and I really am not a big fan of Trump. Otherwise if I would get a job there, I would leave instantly.

Secondly, I think London is a place where I could live in. It doesn’t have the same effect on me as New York, but I think living there for a moment would be good especially career vice. I think the city is really nice and I kind of like it all official mixed with royalty. In addition, there is good shopping and some really nice places.

Finally, I can’t be specific on an exact location but Canada in general might be the way I’m going. Why? Because Canada is pretty much like Finland, except a lot better and bigger with great traveling opportunities (Caribbean, Cuba, USA). I already lived in Montreal for a while, and clearly I wasn’t that interested in photography back then, therefore the poor vintage-edited photos. Montreal was great and really hope to get back there.
