11:02 pm - Cycling in Linthal

Grüezi1, dear readers! You might have noticed that there weren't any blog updates during the summer. Well, there were good reasons for that and one of them is that I've been outdoors quite a lot. I'm still very busy, but it's just impossible not to write about all this beauty around. Today I invite you to Linthal, where I had my first bicycle ride in mountains since I moved to Switzerland.

10:00 pm - Tenerife 2016: Hiking in Anaga mountains

If someone would ask me what is my favorite place in Tenerife, I'd answer without much hesitation - Anaga mountains. They are surrounded by ocean, they are green and wild in many places, they have so fascinating shapes.

08:00 pm - St. Stephen's Day hiking

Finland will never be the same. In the night before the Christmas Eve I found myself queuing in Prisma (a huge hypermarket, the first one in the country to be open 24 hours). I thought that I will be the only night own / foreigner / agnostic there, but actually the queue was quite long.

And on the Christmas Eve I cycled to the church and after that went back home through the center. I was hungry and here it was - a truck with burgers, standing near the Central Railway station. On Christmas Eve, at 0:15 I had a tasty vege burger and a friendly customer service. Something like this would be impossible to imagine even 5 years ago.

I'm content with this Christmas also because I went hiking 2 days out of 3. On Sunday it was night hiking with torches (and testing new route near Saunakallio!), but today it was during the sunlight and I decided to take the camera with me. I didn't have any expectations as the days are mostly gray this time of the year, but the nature turned out to be at its best today.

Life is good. And what makes it even better is when Midsummer and rare days with +25 degrees happen at the same time.

01:28 am - Ruuhijärvi

What Alex does during the first weekend of the summer? Goes to the forest, of course! This time with a tent, which was super good, because I haven't done it since last August.

12:10 am - The first day of summer

I'm already more than a month at home, in Helsinki. The initial confusion is over, I feel myself in the right place and at the right time again. The weather was exceptionally good in May, so I didn't have much opportunities to write here. I didn't even publish anything new in Instagram, because the camera in my phone has been broken since February. Few days ago I finally bothered to send the phone to the service, so more pictures are hopefully coming soon!
