Not In Hollywood Anymore…

Right now the view out of my window is like this:

Yeah, I arrived in Minnesota on Monday. Pretty different, when end of last week looked like this:

Can’t complain.

Dreams Come True

I mentioned a while ago how I’m dreaming about a “bigger” trip for fall. And now, it is actually happening!!!

I was really struggling with the money issue — can I go, can’t I go, how do I live until the trip? But I think I’ve got it covered and why wait, when I can still travel young? Sure I have to cut down some expenses, make sacrifices from other things, but I’d rather see the world now, when I still have a body that works and eyes that actually see.

So here we go, to the United States in September! Is there a better way to end a summer? It’s my fourth visit to US ever, but I’m going to see lots of new places. First Miami and the Keys for few days, then flying out to LA and probably roadtripping up to San Fransisco and to Grand Canyon etc. And then I can digest everything new in safe and sound Minnesota. Ah, I’ve been looking forward to warm summer days, but now I almost wish it would be fall already! 🙂

Dreaming is just the best thing ever invented and even better when you can make those dreams come true… We seem to be quite a team in this travel-dreams-come-true-project with my friend K.  ❤

Dreaming Big

I haven’t been out of Finland since the small Stockholm-visit in the end of February. Boy, I’m starting to be rooted here! (If it’s possible in this icy, snow frosted land…)

I have no obligations in May since work starts in June, so I thought I could go somewhere nice, just here in Europe. But then I thought again, that maybe I could just save the money, and do something bigger and more spectacular next fall… Like a road trip in the country we all adore… USA! Okay, I know I won’t have the time or the money to drive across the whole country. But how about just a look-see trip with a pancake-mozzarella stick-cheesecake-coke-diet?

I already have the places to visit and flights picked out…

(Had to exceptionally borrow some pictures through Google search, hope no-one will mind!)

Now I just have to make it happen! Are you with me, K? 😉
