Long Distance

The distance between these two pictures: 5502 miles and 1 month. What? Right now I feel like these photos can’t even be from the same planet! The contrast is too huge. Heat/snow, sun/snow, sand/snow, Los Angeles/snowTampere…. But I guess I have to believe it, there I was 1 month and 5502 miles ago… Walking in the Santa Monica’s soft sand barefoot.IMG_2450

And here I am now. Standing in the snow, that’s slowly building up to be a drift. Just saying.13100062

 

Jet Lag

I’m having the worst jet lag ever. I’ve been in Finland since Monday, and I think I am still far away from my normal energy level. Or then I’m just getting old, because it didn’t use to be this hard, did it? Though I’m excited, the thought of starting a new job on Monday, and waking up to work at 8 AM EVERYDAY, feels almost absurd. 😀 Well, I will hopefully get there after a peaceful weekend.

The heat in California and Miami feels also like it was forever ago, I need a winter jacket and gloves! Fortunately there’s all the pictures that I can watch and get the warm moments back at least for a second. And luckily I have my lap-warmer – my puppy Urho – here to keep me warm.

I still wouldn’t complain to get back in some of these moments and places again… I’ll try to upload more pictures when I’m not too tired to function.
