Christmas fair

The littlest Christmas tree,
lived in a meadow of green,
Among a family,
of tall evergreens,
He learned how to whisper,
the evergreen song,
with the slightest of wind,
that came gently along.

He watched as the birds,
made a home out of twigs,
and couldn't wait till,
he too was big.
For all of the trees,
offered a home,
the maple, the pine, and the oak,
who's so strong.

Christmas fairs are very good way to get your self in a Christmas mood. What could be more delihtful than eating hot rice porrige seasoned with cinamon sugar in a cold weather.

The great castle of Turku

Good evening for everybody!

My favourite city in Finland is definitely Turku. In my opinion the Finland's old capital city, even after the great fire in 1827, is the most significant city in Finland.

I made a visit at the castle of Turku some time ago. I actually have been there before but not for a very long time and I was extremely amazed by the grandeur and how massive everything was.

I love the atmosphere in castle that oozes the antiquity and let's the stories, I've heard about the old castle, become true. It keeps so much history in it and when you go in, you can feel, how the historical walls, roofs and floors give you a huge amount of strength and feeling that you're a part of the significant history of your motherland.

I think this topic is really worth knowing.
Here below you can make yourself familiar with one of Finland's cultural treasures.

Sailing the seas

We celebratet my mother by staying overnight in Naantali Spa during the weekend. I was really surprised when I saw an advertisement about The cheerful British weeks. I had no any idea about the theme weeks before.

The British week- theme meant things like, Premier legue football, Fish 'n' chips and British music.

In the evening we went with my mom and dad for a small walk. During that I took lots of pictures from birds and seaviews. I saw many interesting houses and the sunset was gorgeous. In my opinion, Naantali is a perfect place to photograph. After the small walk I felt like we were sailing the seas even we didn't.
