November in Finland is murder. It’s just as beautiful as a summer’s day in Mordor, or a day spent in a windowless house without any lights. You wake up, it’s dark. You come home from work, it’s dark. It’s not the nice and soft kind of darkness. It’s wet and rainy and awful. Pitch black.
Some 15 weeks left till mid-February, but today, it feels like forever.
I need to go through some pictures from Portugal. I need to see the ocean waves, the blue sky, and feel the heat. If for nothing else, then just to remember they exist.
If you can, do not, ever, come to Finland in November. It’s for your own good. Instead, invest in Portugal. Travel to see the ocean, enjoy the atmosphere, lively people and wonderful food. It’s good for your health and great for the economy.
These pictures were taken in Sao Pedro de Moel, Elvas and near Cascais.
♦ In the meantime: I would like to share a piece of news from Finland that gives me hope. Instead, I’m forced to read about the recent opening of a all-you-can-drink bar. As if we really needed it in this country.
