I have plenty of stories about Nemi, thanks to her huge personality but like always, I like to let photos do the talking. Continue reading “Introducing Nemi – a sheep in wolf’s clothing”
I’ve often heard people comment (in real life, not so much in the blog) about spending time, about how much of it is consumed by hobbies and why there’s never enough of it for exercise or eating healthier. Continue reading “Want to buy more time? Only 10 euros per two hours!”

If for you, Winter is a time of sitting in front of various screens while dreaming of hikes and treks, Lapin Lumo is just the thing. You can find all six episodes from Hidasta Elämää website.
Slow TV might just be the next big thing since fast cuts and lightning speed has gone on long enough. At least for me, the idea of a series going on for days is truly intriguing. Like Hurtigruten, a five-day-long show about a Norwegian cruise ship, filmed in 2011. Unfortunately only a 12-hour highlight reel is available these days. I would’ve loved to watch the whole thing unedited when I was suffering from major manflu just before Christmas. Then again, having responsibilities and obligations at all would get in the way of enjoying such a format.
However, Lapin Lumo is one of a kind. 30-minute-long episodes where you get to see beautiful scenery from Northern Finland, with a peaceful musical score. Narration is not too intrusive and is well paced, each scene tells a story and boy, are those aerial shots something to remember.

An Environment and Nature Companion looks no different from you or me but happens to be a lot more interested in nature than your average city-dweller. They clean up trash from the street and they’re very aware of every man’s-rights. If you ever come across a Companion in their natural habitat – the woods – they usually sport practical shoes and pant legs that protect them from ticks. They might also have a faint bonfire smoke scent to them.
