I've been in Jyväskylä for a few days now and in Finland for about six days. Everything has been perfect. I missed so much about Finland, even the little things that I forgot about are good to see and feel. Things about Finland that I love:
+ going to sauna + running to the lake right after sauna + the feeling of pores opening up right after sauna, just as the cool air hits + karjalanpiirakka + the summer cottage + birch trees + blueberries + the wonderful people + walking and bicycling anywhere + wonderful shopping and ice cream + cured salmon + rye bread
I have taken many, many pictures so far and will be in Helsinki soon to upload them. See you then.
It was a good weekend and a good start to July. It was hiking, picnicking, and sightseeing. It was taking a breath after being a bit stressed with packing and leaving. Hoping next weekend will be just as lovely, too.
In my preparations for many long plane rides, I also noticed that I'll need some new music to listen to during layovers and three flights. Does anyone have any recommendations?
