old tornio

 Dress&Bag - Mama's old
Shoes - Vagabond

Honestly, I haven't forgotten about this lil' blog of mine. My plan was to have lots of time to blog during the summer, but somehow it hasn't been really happening. It's not that I don't do things and take photos, there just seems to be so little time and then the internet connection at my mum's is so unbelievably slow that I get really annoyed and give up on writing a post (e.g. I was uploading these photos for ~5 hours and still would've had a couple more I was going to upload, but I got too impatient.).

Anyway, enough moaning and excuses. These are the last "holiday" photos, before I started working. We were at my mum's with all of my family for almost a week and one day we visited Tornio. Mama especially wanted to walk along the oldest street in the city, from where the photos are as well. We also made a wee trip abroad on the same day, as we drove to Haparanda, Sweden. It's doesn't really feel 'abroad' because it's an hour away, haha! I think the others like visiting Tornio more than I do, as they used to live there before I was born. It's a lovely city though, and I must go back soon to visit my favourite doughnut place! I also learned that before I was born, my parents were looking for houses on the other side of the border too, and not only in Finland. Which means I could've been born a Swede. That's so strange!
