[Good evening Tuesday] Baby, It's Hot Outside


Greetings from a country where there's 7th wave of Covid. I know, it's so not cool. But it's still there, and it means we need to remain cautious this summer as well...

Last summer, I joined a series of online travel experience. Participants got together every Thursday or Friday evening on Zoom, and watched the video submitted from small islands of Finland with a navigator (tour guide). At first, I didn't expect much from it, and just thought it would be nice to hear things about the islands from my favorite writer/navigator. But it was so much more enjoyable than that. 

We heard the stories from local people while watching the scenery, we virtually visited local farms, small stores, little houses on the islands, atelier of artists... about 10 hours of trip in total. And after this virtual trip, I received an actual postcard sent from the islands (so nice...) and this makes me feel like I really did experience something, not just sitting in front of the screen. Frankly, I don't think I could have such a dense trip like this if I went there alone. Wonderful memory of last summer...


I like going to local farmer's market
