Malta

Thanks for sending us to Blue Grotto

May 3, 2019

Before my trip to Malta, I asked you which new place should I visit during my holiday. My options were an old movie set at the Popeye Village, one of the oldest temple ruins in Malta or a boat trip to Blue Grotto. Well, the Popeye got the least support  (I learned that it’s mostly for kids) and I didn’t really feel like seeing the temples this time so…

Malta

Guess where I am going!

April 23, 2019

Greetings from Helsinki airport! This time I am travelling through Frankfurt to…. who would guess, to Malta! My plan is to work a bit and refresh the old memories of the time I was living on the island. There are still some things to do that I for some reason skipped when I was living in Malta. Here are a couple of options and I would love to…

Visiting Trinity College

April 9, 2019

Is there anyone else who is in love with old libraries? You know those places with wooden movable ladders, dim corners and old books smelling like unreadable adventures. If you are obsessed with those places, you won’t be disappointed with The Old Library at Trinity College. How to visit? Trinity College is a must-see place while you’re in Dublin. Elizabeth the first founded the university in 1592. Since then,…

How to choose a GOOD hostel?

February 13, 2019

Staying at a hostel at the age of thirty or more might sound like a really bad idea. I bet a lot of you (also includes me a couple of years ago) would not even consider staying at a hostel. However, when you let go of your preconceptions, you can realize that hostels might not be such a bad idea after all. Especially when traveling alone, it can…

Winter in Malta – a suicide or a smart choice?

January 26, 2019

I have been brought up in Finland, and as you all know, the Nordic countries are known to have freezing cold, dark and long winters. In every single geography textbook, it said that winters in the Mediterranean are mild or even warm. A lie I would say. Little did I know what stood ahead of me when I moved to Malta one year ago. This post is all about…

Tallinn never lets you down

January 7, 2019

It is incredibly easy to travel from Helsinki to Tallinn by ferry. No wonder that visiting Estonia has been part of Finnish culture since the fall of the Soviet Union. Tallinn has been the place to get cheaper alcohol but more recently the city has built its reputation around great restaurants and amazing food culture. Right after Christmas I and my Swedish friend took a 2-hour ferry to…

Travel year 2018

December 27, 2018

The year 2018 is reaching to its end and it is time to see how much I have traveled. How much should a blogger travel in order to have material for a travel blog? I have only done a couple of short trips to Europe and moved from Malta to Finland. Nothing exotic or extraordinary. 2018 will stay as a modest traveling year but next year might be…

Flying from Tampere-Pirkkala airport

October 19, 2018

Tampere-Pirkkala airport has terminals 1 and 2. The first one is used by SAS and Finnair mainly and the second is for low-cost airlines like Ryanair. Both of the terminals have been renovated and modernized to serve the needs of business and holiday travelers. I experienced terminal 1 for the first time a couple of days ago while flying to Stockholm and Kalmar. I must say that I…

October 15, 2018

Sorry for being a bit quiet on my blog. Not so happy things have happened recently but today I can finally look forward to something nice and pleasant. My autumn break is starting today, and I am going abroad of course! I will need to do a couple of things at the university today but then I am heading to the local airport and traveling to Sweden. I…

Also, new travel dreams are starting to emerge. At the moment, I have three specific goals that I want more than anything else. They are something I could probably fulfill in a year or two, which makes them…
