Chicago, Feb 2010

Chicago, Feb 2010

I was recently posting about my flight to USA. Here i put some nice photos of Chicago views made by me just by walking with my camera. Theese photos are no masterpieces, but i would like to share them with you 🙂

SAS: Money making priority?

SAS: Money making priority?

Recently i was flying from Stockholm to Chicago and back with SAS, Scandinavian Airlines, i had a regular “Economy Class” ticket.

Well, flights were pretty OK, despite of the fact declared by SAS that “SAS offers wider seats and more legroom”. I would beleive that if i did not fly by Boeing 757. […]

Knit it and leave it

Knit it and leave it

Neulegraffiti, or knit graffiti, or yarnbombing, is a comparatively new yet very popular trend in the street art.

Its idea is simple: knit a pattern of whatever shape and size you like, take it to a public place, attach somewhere so that your creation would be visible to others, and leave. That’s it. Or, […]

Shopaholic’s list. What we brought with us from Venice

Shopaholic's list. What we brought with us from Venice

One thing I should tell you right away: Venice is extremely expensive. Even if Sam Marco Square prices are not taken into account and we walk away in the direction of Rialto Bridge, things still look bad. One can find a diner where food is priced at more or less the Finnish level, however […]

Foooooood... Venice, day 3

No one would agree to eat impressions only, right? 🙂

There’s no need to, either, since we are in Italy, the land of prosciutto, parmiggiano, variety of pastas, and Her Majesty Pizza. But not only… When in Venice, there is all reason to try the Venetian fish soup consisting of all available kinds of […]

Non-existent that exists. Venice, day 2

Non-existent that exists. Venice, day 2

As the story goes… We were lucky enough to get a good hotel. Royal San Marco, as is evident from the name, is just a couple of minutes’ walk from San Marco Square and 15 minutes’ walk from Rialto Bridge – that is, within reach for everything. Rooms are rather small like in most […]

Where do I begin... lalala. Venice, day 1

East or West (to fly), Finnair has always been my fave. Especially if the flight is long enough to want some peace and non-pressure service. Plus, they do not mind you sleeping with your legs up on three empty seats that you haven’t bought or requesting an extra lunch, provided of course that the […]

A Road Note

A Road Note

The reason there have not been any updates for a few days now is because I am not here. And I am not here because I am in Italy and my hotel has no wi fi.

Lots of photos to come, and stories, too.

Stay tuned.

Ciao!

Last weekend in Helsinki. We booked a table in a restaurant serving delicious “traditional” Lapland foods.

Assorted fish & reindeer meat

The starters. I guess a Laplandese would be astonished by seeing all this food and getting to know that he’s supposed to eat it daily 😀

Have you ever heard of the Silent People of Kainuu? Or, also referred to as the Oddity of Highway 5.

The idea is as simple as genius. An army of scarecrows (some say, the number is over 1000) dressed in second hand […]
