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.
Oct 23 Links, Travelling:
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.
Sep 23 Technology, Travelling:
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.
Aug 21 Life:
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.
