There are days when Helsinki looks like something out of a decent horror flick!
I first set food in Finland around this time eleven years ago, thinking I’d stay six months at most…
Went to my new local post office and discovered this statue in front of it. Lived in Helsinki on and off for a decade and it’s the first time I remember seeing it.
Fun fact – this is the first year where I can’t recall walking a lot on ice on the sea. I guess it was never really cold enough for me to feel that it was safe.
I’ve upped my non-running workouts and it’s actually becoming a fun thing again!
Wintertime archaeology! Or whatever you call that science of studying sediment strata!
It used to take me 4 minutes to get to the gym, now it takes me 9 or so… but I do prefer the new one. No classes in the morning means no rush of random people right before 7am when I usually get out!
So many peeps out there running at -5C with their gloves off – how do they do it?
It’s all fun and games up until you slide on seemingly nothing while attempting to run on fresh snow.
