Christmas in New York

We have been dreaming of spending Christmas in New York, and finally it is happening this year! We booked our flights already a few months ago, got a nice apartment in Brooklyn from AirBnB, and bought a load of Christmas presents to kids from Amazon and other places.

We will land quite near Christmas Eve – that is the biggest day of celebration in Finland and when also Santa Claus visits homes. We are not planning of importing a Finnish Santa to New York nor following American traditions of presents given on Christmas Day – but need to figure out something that combines both.

Our kids have been a bit worried whether Santa founds us from Brooklyn, but they’ve discussed that only with their grandparents so far – maybe they’ll worry more later and discuss with me or Sanna, or then it is just a minor fear; as they have unlimited faith in Santa’s abilities. We’ll see.

Autumn travels

I’m alive and well from DrupalCon. I must say that it was quite a trip, as usual. Six days of constant interaction with developers and business people takes its toll. I was hosting a panel and also a customer dinner on Tuesday and after I got these most important tasks done, I promptly fell sick. Fortunately, I had fever only during the night between Tuesday and Wednesday, and could get myself in a decent shape with help of ibuprofen. Not the smartest thing to do, but there were no better choices. Had no after effects or anything, so I wasn’t too sick.

Amsterdam Calling

In a couple of days (three, in fact) I’ll be going to Amsterdam to spend a week at DrupalCon Europe. My company is a platinum sponsor of the event, and I’ll be talking, breathing, and living Drupal for one very intensive week.

Back to work and school

The end of summer is near, and our family is back at work and school. Thus, there are less possibilities for travelling in the near future.
