Day 84: Bye Bye Bangkok, Hello Home!

♥♥♥♥♥ It’s been nearly three months since we left Finland at the beginning of September. We’ve been travelling by air, rivers and land, slept in luxury condominiums, cheap hotels, on trains and at one Hilton. We’ve been to mountains, jungle and cities. We’ve encountered snakes, spiders, a ton of roaches and countless cats and dogs….

Day 78: Three Finns in Cambodia

  As I and the enginerd’s 3-month trip is getting closer to its end (NOOOOO!!), we are delighted to tell that an old friend has joined us for the remaining time on the road 🙂 She is my colleague from the hospital I’ve been working at on and off the past couple of years and…

Day 58: Leaving Laos

Whoa, we’ve been on the road for two months now! Tan skin, empty bank accounts, and a smile on our faces, we’re about to start the final month of our journey, exploring Taiwan, Cambodia and finally, once more, Thailand (and we’ll be joined by someone who’s been featured in this blog almost two years ago!!!)….

Day 37: Train Z322 To Lhasa (Feat. Pandas)

After laptop hunting in Shenzhen (horrible!), visiting Shanghai Disneyland and walking the longest glass suspension bridge in the world, travelling across China and climbing on one of the most beautiful mountains in the country, we needed some serious enlightenment.

Surprisingly, This Post Is About Food (and Tallinn)

First of all: I’m in a very tight relationship with my phone. Second of all, having my phone and its charger in separate countries can cause absolute and pure panic. Third of all, the staff at Viru Hotel in Estonia are the purest and nicest people ever and total lifesavers. Now, let’s get to the…

Food, Drinks and Possibly One Food Poisoning in Helsinki

CONTENT WARNING: This post is NOT about budget friendly traveling in Helsinki. It was supposed to be. It’s not. Also, there will be vomit later. Sorry. Let’s start with the basics: Finland is a country located in the northern part of Europe (which is not a country but a cluster of independent countries no one…

Rabbit Food – A Short Survival Guide for Vegetarians in Taiwan

I’m a vegetarian, and the enginerd usually keeps me company. Basically, when we eat out it means no red meat, no white meat, cut down dairy and eggs, and avoid gelatin as much as possible. And 100% No. Fuckin. Olives. (Olives are Satan’s tennis balls.) Being a vegetarian in Taiwan is super easy and relaxed,…

An Engineer Walks Into a Hardware Store

A joke: An engineer walks into a hardware store and shows the owner a Chinese word for a “file” on his cell phone. The owner starts looking for the item, and the engineer’s wife tells him they’re from North Europe, definitely not from Norway, as the owner thinks, but from Finland. Then she proceeds to…

Houtung Cat Village aka the Best Day Ever!

Okay, unlike usually, this post concentrates just and only on cats ♥ . Those adorable little assholes, who absolutely hate you. Just as much as you love them. Anyway, today we sort of accidentally found a cat village!!! As we were heading to Sandiaoling Falls (三貂嶺瀑布群步道口) (more on that later), I happened to look at Google…
