I'M IN FINLAND!!!

View from my parents window 
So the surprise vacation my hubby got me was NOT to San Francisco as I've been begging to go for the past 6 months, but to Finland.
Another view from my parents window
It's not SF, but I'm so happy to be here after 3 years. I love the cold and the snow. It was total surprise for my parents when I showed up behind their door unnannounced with my luggage. I came without him because he has to work like a slave dog until the Olympics are over. I'm thinking another vacation then, maybe to SF since I'm in vacation mood now...
These past few days I've eaten about 12 karelian pies, my mom's cookings, went to surprise my grandmom, had delicious veggie burger at Hesburger (the only burger chain I eat at) and attended a housewarming party in Helsinki Center.
I've been really happy here and liking everything a lot. I could consider moving back for some time. I would definitely live in Helsinki center and travel the Europe. Maybe even go back to school to get my masters or just some courses, since it's free here.  I'm going to meet some more friends and do some serious shopping. It's been snowing every day and I'm loving it.

  2. Käyvätkö vanhempasi useammin kyläilemässä teillä NYCissä vai ettekö tosiaan olleet nähneet toisianne kolmeen vuoteen? Entä voisiko miehesi kuvitella muuttavansa joksikin aikaa Suomeen - oletteko puhuneet aiheesta ikinä? :) Hauskaa lomaa joka tapauksessa!

  3. Kiitti Madison ja Mai! on ollut ihanaa olla taalla, naen kaupungin ihan uusin silmin varsinkin kavereiden mahtavissa keskusta-asunnoissa vierailujen jalkeen tekisi mieli hankkia oma asunto taalta ja viettaa enemmankin aikaa.

    Vanhempia naen vahintaan kerran vuodessa jenkeissa, he tulevat kaymaan joka kesa. emme ole mieheni kanssa viela kunnolla keskustelleet suomeen muutosta, tukholma, lontoo ja san francisco ovat olleet listoillamme, mutta kylla Helsinki olisi taman reissun jalkeen ihana vaihtoehto.

    Viikko meni niin kamalan nopeasti! olisi ihanaa olla viela toinen viikko samaan syssyyn. Ylihuomenna lahto takaisin...

  4. Wow, being back at your roots is always eye-opening! Make the most of those sweet times... then fly back home refreshed and batteries loaded. That's what I have now been doing... for the past eight years already;)

  5. Ai kolmeen vuoteen et ole ollut Suomessa, se on jo aika paljon! Varmaan jotain on muuttunutkin kotipuolessa sinä aikana. Mieletön yllätys vanhemmille kun olit oven takana! Nautihan lomasta!
