What if I told you that the largest wooden old town in the Nordics could be found right here in Finland? Could I entice you with promises of old-fashioned architecture, colourful facades and dreamy cobblestone streets? Do I have your attention? This is Old Rauma, a UNESCO world heritage listed wooden town on the west coast of Finland that can make you feel like you’ve just walked into someone’s Instagram picture.
Happy Sunday, guys!
How you’ve been? I’ve been taking a few weeks downtime from the blog, and this is the result: new look, new logo, new hosting (which I’m frankly still trying to figure out – what the hell are all these tech words I didn’t even know existed?) but the same, good old content. How do you like the new design?
As you probably know (because I can’t stop spamming it all over my Insta feed), I travelled in Bolivia in July, and one of the highlights of the trips was, as expected, my 3-day Jeep safari to Salar de Uyuni and the national parks around it. more “41 Pics to Prove That Salar de Uyuni Is Ridiculously Photogenic”

Let me start by saying that Portugal is awesome! Old cities with streets covered in slippery cobblestones, painstakingly steep hills sneaking up to palaces and castles, the bluest January sea… I thought that in two weeks I would have enough time to go through all of Portugal, and even though I have been able to cover most of the highlights, I feel like I’ve only scratched the surface and I’m left wanting more. more “70 Pictures to Make you Fall in Love with Portugal”
When I think of Scotland, the usual suspects spring to mind first: bagpipes and haggis, highlands, a charming but at times incomprehensible accent. And wouldn’t you know it – Edinburgh has all of those! On one side, it’s a city devoted to tourism; the Royal Mile has no shortage of souvenir shops offering kilts and plushie Nessies, overpriced whisky shops and chippies advertising fried Mars bars on their windows. On the other hand it’s an old, impressive city where houses are build of sandstone and shopfronts painted in bright colours, and where writers like J. K. Rowling and Arthur Conan Doyle found inspiration. more “Edinburgh photo roll”
