Travel journal USA 2016 - Part 3 - Dogs I befriended

Beauregard - a St. Bernard pup

This very short part 3 of my travel journal is dedicated to the dogs I met during our trip. I am missing pictures of many lovely dogs, such as Mack, Popeye, Lucy, Scott and Leela, but will let these three represent the dog friends I made in the US. Meet Beauregard, a huge St. Bernard puppy; Mason, an old gentleman; and a friendly dog at Dickinson College, who let me rub his belly forever, but whose name I never learned.

Das schöne Raumschiff kehrt zurück or the brilliant landing of C74


Last Friday the spaceship C74 landed after a 41-year-flight through the universe. After 1 year of travel the ship and its crew reached its destination.

Only basic live support systems are on, as well as the coffee machine, the champagne bucket and the lights!

101 in 1001 vol 3

The last one went really bad, but I feel this time around I have some really interesting goals on the list and am really looking forward to achieving them all!

Finland Summer of 2014


This summer was also spent (well, a few weeks of it... let's face it, the best weeks) in Finland, my home country. The weather was kind, and the people were great. Here are some pics for you to look at:


We picked cherries (actually, we cut the tree too!)


The yard was summery


We replanted some trees, here's my birch tree!


How was your summer? Please leave a comment!

New York

Downtown Manhattan from the Empire State Buidling

This March I made my first-ever trip to the USA. more specifically New York. 10 days there were well spent with friends, walking the city (we only missed Queens and Long Island), looking at the beaufiful Hudson river as well as the views from the 86th floor of the Empire State Building. Here are some impressions for you, too!

Merry Christmas!

So, this Christmas is not the best so far - it's warm and the fields are green, and me and hubby are both ill... but it's Christmas anyway, so it can't be all bad!


I wish all my readers a lovely Christmas and a happy New Years - I hope 2014 brings us all health, wealth and happiness.
