Hello from Finland // A dip in the sea

Donnerstag, 31. August 2017

Hei Hei from Finland! I am so sorry, I haven't given a sign of life on here the past couple of days. After arriving in Helsinki when I almost missed my flight, I felt pretty confused and overwhelmed by all feelings and impressions I had returning here after three months. I spent a lovely time in the hotel and had a great time at the Finnish Nature Day planting my tree in the Nuuksio forest. You might have seen a little video I filmed (here) but there will also follow some photos and stories here soon! Now I moved to Tiina's place where we just spent our time watching movies since it is gray and rainy here the past two days, went for a little trip into the city and go for walks in the forests. We found some wild raspberries and also the last blueberries of this season. A few seconds ago I came home from a run near the shore where I took a dip in the sea. The cold water felt so good and although my feet felt numb afterwards I felt so alive! Finland does me good and I enjoy my time here to its fullest. I feel like a bird being able to fly again! I will share more photos and adventures soon, I just decided to go day by day and do what feels good. My time here is limited and I don't wanna miss a single second. Lots of love to you! I hope you are all doing fine!
