TENERIFE – FIRST PHOTOS

TRAVEL 11.11.2018 Emilia Hämäläinen  In Wednesday I flew to the Canary Islands, Tenerife with my family. My expectations about Tenerife were contradictory: I already saw in my eyes many sun loungers and tourists shops. I knew that Tenerife had a bad reputation due to the huge amount of tourists – or maybe it’s just me, who feels it’s a bad thing. Even my co-worker laughed and said how Tenerife wasn’t the first place where she would travel. Well yeah, before I also laugh and say the same. For now, I just feel sad how we see the island. Because, it doesn’t…

COPENHAGEN VOL.2

TRAVEL 6.11.2018 Emilia Hämäläinen The Sunday sunrise from our balcony. This was our second day and we’re ready to explore more. But first, let’s talk about, what else but food! Scroll down to find more.  We found heartbreaking good vegan restaurants. Friend of mine tell me about Souls, so we went to sunday brunch to there. The menu had different doses to choose from – mine was closer to 18 euros. It included fruits, bread, hummus, pancakes, yogurt with muesli and vegetables. And for dinner? By change we found a restaurant named Plant Power Food  – it’s also highly recommended. Kopal Rice was small, hidden…

COPENHAGEN VOL.1

TRAVEL 29.10.2018 Emilia Hämäläinen I finally got a change to go to Copenhagen – the beautiful capital of the Denmark. The city is known as a trendy place, also they say there’s more bicycles than people (bike culture is high level for sure). The city is now popular place to travel and I’ve seen it in social media. So, we booked cheap flights from Norwegian’s autumn sale and packed our bags. We stayed 3 nights in lovely airbnb (as usually). Our apartment was in a cozy neighborhood, close to everything. Above you can see two photos from our street. Below can you…

KURJENRAHKA NATIONAL PARK

NATURE 11.10.2018 Emilia Hämäläinen Kurjenrahka National Park is close to Turku (only half an hour by car). I’ve never been there before and the visit was incredible. Lucky we had a good weather and beautiful “ruska” with it. Finnish autumn is a wonderful time to spend time in nature for sure. Nowadays the natural parks have begun to attract me – and there’re still many places I want to go. 

FRENCH RIVIERA – NICE

TRAVEL 2.10.2018 Emilia Hämäläinen Few photos from our lately trip to France, Nice. We stayed for 6 days in August. I loved the city – even tho there were too hot and too many people. This was the perfect place to be just on the beach. And eat well – I fell in love with mussels. We had a lovely Airbnb at promenade, hosted by an old couple who lived in the next door. They were from Paris and Nice was their “summer cottage.” Even tho they didn’t speak much English, we managed to understand each other. My co-worker warned me…

HANKO 07/2018

HANKO, TRAVEL Emilia Hämäläinen This summer, I went to Hanko for the first time. That is a place Finns call as a Hamptons of the Finland. White sand and long beaches, luxury boats and beautiful villas. The place is small and about 8 506 people live there. There is a little shopping street and nice local restaurants (located in an old factory building!!!). We went to eat the most delicious pasta to Hangon Makaronitehdas – they just do the best pasta (not kidding). Luckily my best friend had heard of that place. I could go there anytime and write just…
