The Web Summit & Lisbon Memories

by

The Web Summit in Lisbon was a great excuse for me to finally travel back to Portugal. Having spent many holidays over here when I was young, it was time for me to explore Lisbon properly and attend the huge, huge Web Summit that brings you anything that’s related to digital in any way, it’s a hub for the international start-up scene and a pretty prestigious event.

Summer Magic in Åland

by

The Åland Islands are slowly becoming my favourite place ever. It is the absolute perfect and most scenic place to visit, the entire Western archipelago is a true hidden gem that is ideally discovered by bike. For me Åland is both relaxing and soothing, but equally great for an active holiday.

Nature, Muumins and pampering: My Side of Naantali

by

I’m constantly on the search for brief Helsinki escapes, from busy times working and all that. I knew Naantali only by the comparison of it being “the Miami of Finland” (without the drugs) and heard plenty of stories about it from friends praising it, but only recently I got my own first glimpse of this magical seaside town. Nature? Food? Some pampering? MUUMINS? What else could you ask for.

Kemi: Olokolo or the Snowhotel?

by

Kemi up in Lapland, right at the Gulf of Bothnia, is a place of magic: it’s home to the Snow Castle – yes, a castle and hotel completely built of snow and ice. Also, have you heard of the Olokolo?

Breaking the Ice with Sampo

Did you know that you can go on an icebreaker cruise in Kemi, Northern Finland? The unique experience takes you on the retired vessel “Sampo”, who will also get you to plunge in the frozen water of the Arctic.

Lapland Getaway: Luosto

by

Getting out into the nature of pure, deep Finnish winter is something that everyone should experience. It makes you fall in love with the season, understand why winter can be incredible and just be out and away from daily life for a while. Luosto is an ideal spot to do that, amidst a gorgeous National Park and the Fells. Some action? Snowmobiling, skiing and husky sled safaris are only a few ideas.

Åland really is one of the most beautiful spots I have ever seen and the perfect place to let your daily life behind you. Countless islands, magical bays, endless skies – what could you need more to let your mind reset. Apart from lounging about on the rocks behind our cottage, there are of course a few more things to experience!
