Business lounge Gallery in Sheremetyevo airport

After we flew from Helsinki-Vantaa to Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow, our priority was to get into another nice lounge to wait for the departure of our next flight. Waiting in the middle of the night, it is essential you get to hang out in a comfy place and continue the consumption of alcoholic beverages. The…

Almost @Home lounge in Helsinki-Vantaa airport

A cozy and quiet lounge at the Finland’s largest airport provides thirsty passengers with food and beverages. The welcome on a Saturday morning was warm and professional, even with me wearing yoga pants. Facilities were clean(ish) , and all in all the place was very tidy. The facilities include a shower room, which the engineer…

The Matchbox Rule

I hate spiders. I hate them. (I am not scared of them, it’s just a matter of acknowledging each others’ existence and mutual dislike. Totally.) The enginerd is my personal spider repellent. We’re leaving tomorrow, and just a moment ago he packed a pair of gloves for spider removing purposes. He once stopped me from…

Testing YouTube embedding

Hi there ♥ We are finally on the road 🙂 We left our hometown last Saturday, visited my parents and are now at the enginerd’s parents’ place. The past week has been super hectic, and naturally I got the flu. So instead of exercising and packing, I’ve spent the last few hours learning how to edit…

In the end, it’s just a new beginning

    We are leaving soon. Writing this, it’s Tuesday, this post should be published on Friday, and there is so much left to do.

50 shades of adventure

  For those new to this blog: we are a couple of young ish (closer to 30 than 40 still…) travel enthusiasts, who decided to see what happens if we gave up our jobs, sold our stuff and headed to Taiwan.  I, the nurse, create most of the content in our social media, and the…

Noodles, dust bunnies and pure excitement – we’re leaving soon!

Our house is a terrible junkyard. We are stretching our finances so that we’d have more cash to support us later. We are tired since preparing for the most insane thing we’ve ever done requires so much to do, there’s not enough time to sleep sometimes. I look like a miserable wreck thanks to not…

Small steps and big emotions – How our downsizing is going

Our apartment should be empty in one month. In one month, we will have left with our bags and small load of things we’ll keep, after giving away or selling most of our possessions. The engineer’s parents will help us with storing most of them, and my little sister was bribed with a half free…

In our post about the 7 micro projects we need to work on before leaving we talked about the things we need to get done before hitting the road in December. Let’s see how we’re doing now, shall we? Before we go, though, I have to admit that calling them the 7 micro projects was…
