Docking Station for Digital Nomads

Oulu travel woes

When I typically write a travel report, I say that the flights were easy or uneventful. Not when I flew to Oulu last Thursday.

My – and my colleagues’ – aim was to visit Oulu for Pestipäivät, a local recruiting fair, and then I was supposed to visit at Digital Oulu 2018 event. We all had booked Norwegian early morning flight from Helsinki to Oulu.

The flight left at 7.00 in the morning, so I woke up at 4.45 to get in time to the airport. Got there, through the security, and to the lounge without issues and in a fraction of time allocated for that. The only issue was that most of Norwegian self-checkin automats were out of order, but got my ticket.

Christmas time in North Carelia

We’ve been spending the last few Christmas seasons at our home, but this year decided to go to my parents in North Carelia. After spending the first night in Polvijärvi at my younger sister’s old room, I strongly feel that we made the right choice. After a hectic autumn, the tranquility here is just awesome. Also, there is so much of snow here that it feels refreshing after slush, sleet, and rain in Helsinki.

Slushy season in Finland

November is the hardest month in Finland – it is cold, dark, and wet. And when it is not raining, there is sleet coming from the skies and slush on the ground. The Finnish name of the month – ‘marraskuu’ – means the month of the death. Isn’t that lovely?

Madrid + Vilnius

I’ve been collecting interesting places to my must go places list from late 20th century, and it has gradually shrunk over the years. Not every year, but like six cities in a decade. This month I multiplied the pace by visiting in two places, first a week in Madrid, Spain, and then two days in Vilnius, Lithuania.
