turku and travel

I've been travelling a bit this year. And I plan on travelling quite a bit more. These are all little snaps from Turku, mostly from when I first arrived there. And even though it's officially my place of residence and has been for the past six months, looking back at these it feels more like looking at photos from a holiday. I know I'll be back there come autumn, but it still doesn't feel permanent and for the moment I am embracing my more nomadic side. One of my goals I've set for myself (not for the new year but more like a "25 things before 25") was to travel more and that is possibly one of my most achievable goals. Moving to Portugal for an indefinite time definitely helps in it, and has been pretty great so far. There's so many half-planned trips on my mind that I can take from here as well. I was even half-joking about visiting a new country every month this year. (Which would be great if I wasn't a cheap student.) Exploring Portugal and visiting Spain and Morocco are at the top of my list right now. And once I get back to Turku, I know there's more to explore in that corner of the world!

What are your travel plans for the near future and this year?

P.S. If anyone is up for a holiday in Morocco with me, get in touch! (Seriously. Not even half-joking.)

Awesome shot of EVERYTHING! I especially like the building with artwork and there's just something about falling leaves that reminds me how beautiful change is.

Laura Mitbrodt said...

It looks so pretty there, I would love to go

Jess Acton said...

The colours and the lighting in these photos are just gorgeous. Look at those autumn leaves!! I have very ambitious travel plans for this year and I think I might have to lower my expectations a little and take my summer holiday in the UK. There's so much I've yet to see so I'm sure I can make it work but I really want some sunshine! xx

Laura Mitbrodt - turku is definitely worth visiting if one's in finland, dear! xx

Jess Acton - thank you so much, jess doll! sounds good. i feel like my list of places to visit this year is getting ever so long, and i really can't expect to realise all my plans. but a summer holiday in the uk sounds lovely - there's so many lovely places to visit! and honestly the weather isn't as bad as people make it out to be either, in my opinion, haha! xx

Kati - glad you like it, chick! xx

Gail J - me too, honey! we could make some travel plan together, haha! xx

TAPEPARADE - turku really is lovely:-) i can't wait to go back to see more of the archipelago and maybe visit åland! you'd be most welcome to join my morocco trip! if you've given me your number, i must've misplaced it, though! :--( xx
