As stated in the previous entry, we spent our Easter holiday in Ylläs together with my parents. I was so busy having time out that I didn’t write anything from the fell, but now it is good time to fill that gap.
The train trip was easier than last year, as we now had two cabins instead of one. A cabin has maximum of three beds, so five people makes it quite crammed – albeit still tolerable. Now we had a luxury of everyone having their own bed, and two cabins also reduced the hassle the kids created, as they were mostly divided between the two cabins.
All snow had melted from the Helsinki region, so it was wonderful to wake up amidst snowy landscape. Unfortunately, it snowed almost every day and both crosscountry and downhill skiing were not that fun in a new snow.

Easter is soon and this means that we embark to journey to Ylläs in Lapland. We have been enjoying snow in the springtime in Ylläs for four years in a row, so this is already a tradition.

I’ve been fortunate to participate in DrupalCamp London for three years in a row – actually, as long as the Camp has been organised. This year I also had a session about making meaning by open source contributions to people near and far. The slides can be found at Exove’s Slideshare channel.

I’m writing this at an air plane going to Oslo, Norway. I was so busy at New York with holiday daily churn that I managed to write another chapter here. After the trip, we were properly jetlagged for several days, then we had a couple junior ice hockey tournaments and plenty of games, and finally work started.
