Helsinki winter holidays 

We just arrived from gloomy Paris to snowy Helsinki for a two week winter holidays. This vacation is the first real holiday since last summer and very much needed as well. We’re visiting my family, celebrating my new nephew, seeing dear friends and enjoying the northern city life. We flew with Norvegian Airlines from Orly to Helsinki with super cheap flights that were on time and impeccable in all ways. Once arrived at home we had a traditional everyday meal that included potato and sausage soup, rice and rye galettes and home baked brioches. Now B is having a nap and I’m planning our next days program. So many things we want to do and full two weeks in front of us! Let the winter fun begin!

Nyt alkoi kauan kaivattu talviloma Helsingissä. Kaksi viikkoa aikaa viettää aikaa perheen kanssa ja tutustua uuteen veljenpoikaan, nähdä ystäviä ja käydä Helsingin kivoissa putiikeissa ja kahviloissa. Lennettiin suoraan surkean sumuisesta Pariisista tänne raikkaisiin talvimaisemiin. Kotona meitä odotti maukas perinteinen illallinen, johon kuului siskonmakkarasoppaa, karjalanpiirakoita ja kotona leivottua pullaa jälkkäriksi. Nam! Nyt B on päikkäreillä ja minä suunnittelen seuraavien päivien ohjelmaa. Ihanaa olla vihdoin lomalla!
