What if and then what

I’ve been going back and forth with my own thoughts lately. Our summer vacation is not coming up until mid-August, which is making it hard for me to commit to any plans. I had already settled for the plan to explore Eastern Finland. Now, however,…

Tip 18: Consider jetlag and travel fatigue

If you take a longer trip it’s wise to take jetlag and travel fatigue into consideration when making plans. I know how exciting it is to explore new destinations and you may feel like you’re missing valuable time if you take some downtime. I dare…

A day in my life

A day in my life

I’ve been contemplating writing a post of what my day looks like in these exceptional times for a while. Finally, I decided to put pen to paper (or in this case start typing). This post really has nothing to do with travel, so if that’s…

Tip 17: McDonald’s & Starbucks usually offer free Wi-Fi

Tip 17: McDonald’s & Starbucks usually offer free Wi-Fi

At least for me, finding free Wi-Fi while traveling is essential. I always book accommodation with free Wi-Fi, which naturally means I don’t need Wi-Fi as much when out and about. However, Wi-Fi is still also necessary when roaming the destination. Whenever I enter an…

Maistettavaksi…

Tip 15: Walk as much as possible

One of my favorite things to do while traveling is to walk. Strolling around allows you to see so much more than using public transport or a rental car. Next to walking, cycling is also a good option. However, I think walking is even better…

Chiantia ja carbonaraa

Chiantia ja carbonaraa

Viikonloppuna oli taas aikaa maistella Rosa viini- ja ruokakerhon toimittamaa viiniä. Viiniksi valikoitui italialainen punaviini, jonka seuraksi kokkailin pasta carbonaraa. Tiesittekö muuten, että aidossa ja alkuperäisessä carbonarassa on vain viisi aineosaa: spagettia, guanciale-lihaa, munia, Pecorino Romano -raastetta ja mustapippuria. Guanciale on savustamaton italialainen, pekonia muistuttava…
