This week has been all about contrasts. Some days staying home and watching way too much Netflix and not doing anything too productive. Other days waking up at seven, heading to a gym and finishing some projects at the Uni before meeting friends for coffee.
On Tuesday I took a thermos flask full of hot chocolate with me and headed to Seurasaari for a long walk to enjoy the good weather. It was very relaxing to just walk around the island by myself and soak in the not-so-warm Nordic sun while enjoying a cup (or three) of hot chocolate. Besides that, my day consisted of a long yoga sesh and just relaxing. Days off in the middle of a week are the best! 🙂
One of my favorite things at the moment are long coffee breaks. Whether it’s just a take away by myself or or a chai latte enjoyed while catching up with a friend, coffee breaks make everyday life just a little bit better. Especially if you let yourself enjoy some yummy cake as well.
My next trip to Australia is getting closer and we have some very exciting plans for my four-week stay. So happy I get to spend almost a month there when it’s the darkest time of the year in Finland. Can’t stop dreaming about beaches, warm sun, good food and vineyards. To get inspired and even more excited, I’ve gone through so many pics from last summer and other travels this year. Such good memories!
This weekend I’m visiting family in Lappeenranta. Just realised that I have all the coming weekends booked with birthday and graduation parties as well as pre-Christmas celebrations before I leave on my vacation. I really enjoy the holiday season and all the exciting events it brings. Last weekend we had such a good time at a Halloween party on Saturday and at a dinner with the same group on Sunday. It was especially nice because it’s not too often that all of us have a free weekend in our calendars.
Hope you’re enjoying your weekend!
