Copenhagen in one day

August 13, 2018

What do you do when you have just one day to visit the capital of Denmark? It is a bit rainy and I am so tired that I could sleep until tomorrow. Please, could someone remind me next time not to book flights that leave from Helsinki around 6 or 7 am? This means that I will need to catch a night bus from my hometown Tampere and…

How much should you travel as a travel blogger?

August 8, 2018

]I have been writing my blog for over four years now, and all this time I have called this as a travel blog. The harsh fact is though, that I travel far less than many of my blogger colleagues. I haven’t visited over 100 countries, not even close. Actually, the number might be a bit over twenty. I can neither brag about visiting anything interesting or exotic. I…

Birthday dinner at restaurant Muusa, Tampere

August 5, 2018

I had my birthday on Thursday, which was a great reason to try out a new restaurant in Tampere, Finland. I haven’t lived in the city for some years and there are heaps of new restaurants for me to test. Because it was my birthday, I wanted to be sure that there won’t be any disappointments. So I contacted my fellow travel bloggers for recommendations. The only criteria…

I started my own business!

August 3, 2018

A couple of days ago I returned to Finland and started a new chapter in my life. I gave my old home country a second chance. Once Finland felt so small, depressing and not open-minded at all and I graved for an opportunity to leave. A couple of years abroad and I look at Finland with fresh, more understanding eyes. I have fully enjoined this, sitting outside in…

Life without regrets

July 30, 2018

Six years ago I was finishing my master’s thesis on consumer’s feeling of regret. Despite the fact that my point of view was purely commercial, I spend a good day or two reading both psychological and merely entertaining articles about regret. What do people regret the most? How do feelings of regret affect on people’s behaviour? How do people try to avoid feelings of regret? I learned that…

Malta

What is Maltese food like?

July 24, 2018

Maltese cuisine is quite unknown, at least if you compare it to its Mediterranean neighbours. When I moved to Malta, I could not name any single local traditional dish. Maltese cuisine has been greatly influenced by several conquers that have ruled Malta over the centuries. However, nowadays what is affecting the most, is the tourism. Unfortunately several restaurants focus on serving the same, unimaginative pizza, pasta and hamburger…

Why am I leaving Malta?

July 22, 2018

This post is a sequel of my previous post on things I will miss when I leave Malta.  If there are so many good things about this island, why would I ever want to leave this land of endless job opportunities and sunny weather? Well, there are several reasons. Personal reasons I have lived a bit more than three years abroad. During this time my sister has had a…

July 10, 2018

After three weeks I will pack my bags and head to my home country Finland. For the first time in several years, I actually intent to stay there for some time. I already know that there are several things in Malta that I am going to miss. The year here has been good, educational, peaceful in its own way and full of many experiences. I have learned the…

When you have to decide…

July 5, 2018

Changes are scary and exciting at the same time. They bring a chance to learn, develop, renew yourself and become a slightly different. At the same time changes are difficult, because they force you to let go of some good things, people or the feelings of familiarity. Here it comes. I have decided to leave Malta.  There are several reasons behind my decision. I have complained about Mediterranean way…
