Merry christmas and a Happy New Year 2014. I will spend couple more weeks in Finland but will be posting soon again.  I hope you enjoyed my christmas calender. Stay happy! One way to spend those holidays, listen to this. 

Forest in the picture is in Nuuksio, Southern Finland. The grass was slowly moving as I walked by.

Rio, warmth! How I like those waves at Ipanema!

Rio de Janeiro couple of year ago, a lovely place especially if you have some local friends like I did to guide you. I visited a hidden waterfall in the rainforest and I climbed on top of Pao de Acúcar. Monkeys where interested in us and I watched a little armadillo as it crawled slowly inside the undergrowth of the forest. I was happy to see a samba club party at three am and eat a real feijoada at a birthday party. Some kids tried to steal our bikes and I met other travelers who where stopping at Rio to get some sun at Ipanema where we sat for hours on the rocks and sand. I start to forget now all the names of the fruits I never had before.

Two photos of Prague. Good old times.

Berlin again. And one of its most popular tourist attractions, the East Side Gallery. The Gallery consists of more than 100 paintings by international artists, painted on the Berlin wall in 1990. Today I'm flying to Finland, see you there.

Leaving to Finland in the morning, goodbye Grez for this year! Last day was luminous and cold.

Hmm, I don't know what is the connection between these photos. A rock in the forest of South-Finland and some cute monkeys in Rio de Janeiro. Or are they monkeys actually? Well they were not scared at all anyway, just curious. Maybe it's a little attempt to so what and how is different in these two places.

BERLIN! Love it. Our school has a residency there. These photos are from 2010.

There's more journeys yet to come in this christmas calender, once I get to my archives of Brazil.. Today I was looking through my instagram, it's like a little amusement park there. Here's some hopefully unpublished instagram photos of Paris. Of course the idea of instagram is to stay just there mais c'est la vie.. I thought today a part of Eiffel would be nice. 

Before the winter's trips to Finland and Sweden. January will be exciting and a bit more cold.

Today was so beautiful I had to share these.. days go so fast now, it is already 15th. Sun went down fast, I was looking from our window. This lake was already a bit frozen.

Yesterday our village of Grez celebrated Santa Lucia. Swedish, Finnish, Swedish-Finnish, Iranian and French all together. So I wanted to dedicate this to the light. Here is the Lucia bringing the light, there was a procession all through the village. Other picture is from my home, where I'm going next week.

2 x Paris again. I really love this city, part of it is to do with this randomness what happens every day on the streets and different places. Suddenly you stumble upon piles of salad on the roads or see yourself looking at the Eiffel tower that seems to be in the middle of the building process.

On the secret way to a secret beach. The best trips ever. I will never forget these blue and turquoise waters. You might recognize the lake but let's just say it is not so far from Romeo's and Juliet's homes.

Christmas is closer. Today's calender I wanted to open up to Italy, beautiful Verona where I visited two summers ago. Home of two famous lovers, Romeo and Juliet. The balcony of Juliet where you can actually go to dream about Romeo.

I have some friends who go every year to Primavera Sound- music festival in Barcelona. I was there in 2010. I had my Canon AV1 and Diana to take pictures on film. I love to go back to these photos, to Caribou- show (CLICK!) and FC Barcelona winning and touring the city on bus.

This is Switzerland, vineyards, sun, sunflowerfields,  Mont Blanc somewhere so high in the clouds you can't see it. Last memories of summer now in the beginning of winter. Everything is so clean and thoughtful there, in the centre of the city trees carefully put where they belong to and nowhere else. Banks, and more banks. But just outside the roads you can see the mountains, rise up to them and look at the sky and the hawks rising there.
