Here in Finland, we don't see alot of daylight. From october to march it's mostly dark and dim. The sun comes up around 9.30 and it goes down around 16.00. More or less like that, it depends on the month. That's about six months of darkness. To wake up when it's pitch black outside is super hard for most people, including myself. You wake up, it's dark. You go to work, it's still dark. You finish work at 16.00, wait what? IT'S DARK AGAIN!
It's so hard to be or to get energized in the darkness. That's why some of us finns are moody and very pale during this time of the year. So when the sun is out, we chase it. We need to soak in the sunlight when we've got the chance. This weekend was magical. Snow, sun and crispy air!
I visited the island of Hitis or Hiittinen or HitisLANDET where my bf is from. We were so lucky with the weather and it was gorgeous all weekend. It was around -7 and super crispy! I do feel bit more energized and I've gotten some sweeeet ass archipelago air in my lungs. FRESHNESS!
Hope all of y'all had a great weekend!
This coming week is filled with work, cooking, yoga and on friday I get to eat fancy AF food at Kaskis (nr. 6 on the top 10 best restaurants in Finland) HAHA, I'm so happy and hungry.
