You can just keep on writing about it. It’s so beautiful.
Sometimes you pass a scene that makes you want to return. And of course it’s never the same when you return. It was like that here too, but the scene was still pretty.

I had still a bit of a flu. I still had a good head ache. But I had to get something to eat. And while I was there, anyway, I decided to just quickly get the soap. So I went in, with head ache and all, that got worse and worse. And after paying, which made the head ache even worse (darling, I SERIOUSLY miss you, you should be able to afford a crappy piece of soap for just under 10€ a lot better with your MBA than I can as a poor starving freelancing artist 😀 ), got the hell out of the place. Dreading the day when I run out of moisturizer. I’m gonna have to take out another mortgage on the house!
And even the picture is a disaster. But right now I couldn’t care less…

The Better Half always used to get me a chunk of soap from Lush. I like what they have there, but in the stores there are always so many different scents, so many layers of scents, that it’s like a wall where you can lean against. If I set foot in that store I’ll be facing a pounding headache within two minutes (which is why She, and not I, gets the soap). Unfortunately my stash is slowly running at its end and I will have to take on the challenge in person.
That, or then buy a few bottles of Axe and smell like all the other guys out there 😉

Supposedly the most popular place for picking berries and mushrooms in the greater Helsinki area. I went there with my better half for a good hike and some more colorful pictures than edible mushrooms. The lush green of the moss for example. It’s so soft that you have to suppress the urge to just lie down and go to sleep in it (I’m still not completely rid of my jet lag, so it really was tempting).

The marshes (Mustalampi) also looked very tempting. Looked, though… step in it in the wrong spots and you’ll be in water all the way up to your knees, if not higher.

And many other colorful and less colorful things. If only we had more time… the 10 km walk that we did took us a good three hours. I take all the blame for it.
