Living in the Villa of Pippa Longstocking

Mittwoch, 31. Mai 2017

Isn't this the most beautiful window view? It's a little restaurant on a small island near Laajasalo. I went for an evening walk with Joonas Linkola earlier to catch the sunset and we passed this beautiful house. We also watched the sun between the trees before she went behind the clouds on the horizon. 

I enjoyed the wind and the sun on the higher rocks, and the view over the water and all the green blooming trees surrounding the small red wooden houses. This evening has been so calm and relaxing and I have been really happy to meet Joonas and get to know him a little better. 

Joonas is a nature photographer as well and it felt good to share ideas and experiences. He even taught me how to fly a drone which has been really fun. Seeing the place from above looked really epic. Now I can call myself "Pilot Michelle" how Joonas baptized me in jest. I went home when the sun set and I got cold. Joonas made his way back to the villa he lives in with some of his friends. Can you remember the post I shared months ago about the Scandinavian houses and the big yellow villa which looked like the one Pippa Longstocking lives in? (here) Yes, that's where he lives! Isn't that a funny coincidence? I have admired this place for such a long time, and there is even a room left free. 

Well, I hope you are all fine! I am already feeling a little better, now that I have left my flat and finally jumped to the next stage. All your comments and messages I received made this hard time much better and I want to thank you with all of my heart for all your kindness and care! I send you lots of love, take care! Good night!


  1. I loved de photo of the window: My blog's name is "A Menina da Janela" - In English it would be something like The Girl from the Window. It seems that this day was really incredible and I loved this post and photos!
    Is good to see that you're better. Good lucky!

  2. Die Bilder sind einfach so wunderschön, all diese bezaubernden Landschaftsaufnahmen, der See, die Häuser - dass es einem fast im Herzen weh tut.
    Bewahr diese wunderbaren Momente gut auf, liebste Michelle.

    Alles Liebe,

    1. Es ist so ein zauberhafter Ort, ehrlich! Es war so schön dort spazieren zu gehen und den Sonnenuntergang zu genießen :)

      Liebste Grüße
