Communicating with people

I had an idea to independently study some Spanish during my time here. I have learned some words and phrases but I would not brag too much about my skills. I’d really recommend studying some basics before arriving here but you get surprisingly far by using English and body language. If you like the board […]

First days in Barcelona

So called “my airplane” took off this Friday and I left Helsinki with its snow behind me. Wintery white fields were rolling under the plane and slowly the snow was disappearing while we got more distance to my home country. Some years earlier I did the same thing and flew from Helsinki to Barcelona. I had […]

Stockholm tales

WEEK THREE         Worked with Mikael in the beginning of the week, then I spent ascension day in Nacka with Iris and friends. It was one of those first hot days, perfect mini holiday with grilling and catamaran sailing for some of us. The weekend was spent on Orust (an island near Göteborg) […]

Stockholm tales

Budablog 2

Hi, It has now been pretty quiet since I’ve had a long weekend. That’s because they are celebrating the national holiday here in Hungary and it lasts for four days. I’ve been checking out my neighborhood and it has been quite the perfect weather for that. I also moved to a new place. It’s a […]

20.-27.12 — A Sicily retrospective (or why Travelling is Weird)

Boy, what a mess. Okay, upfront, this is going to be less of a travel blog post than it is going to be a travel retrospective post. My attempt at doing something interesting enough to write about every two weeks… actually held up pretty well by the end of the trip, but what with Christmas […]

6.12.2015 — Trip to Firenze

Happy Finnish Independence Day! Did you know that the 8th of December is a national holiday in Italy? I didn’t. In hindsight I probably should have, since I researched holidays before leaving, but as it turns out, I have a terrible memory for stuff like this. Anyway, Tuesday the 8th of December is the Day […]
