seeking summer.

this is one of my favourite pictures from this summer, even though you kinda wouldnt expect it to be shot in warm weather. this is mostly due to the fact that it was shot in Oulu, Finland, on its most popular beach. well, you can kinda see how popular it was this particular day haha.. the mood there was stunning though, blue skies, a incredibly sandy beach and a nice cafe. this picture just represents the perfect reason to travel: make new experiences that you havent had before, learn from them and then go on searching for that next experience. and never stop.

Alli had a very special last minute idea: the beach (google Nallikari Oulu to get an idea)! it was perfect. well, except for the temperatures at least.

sun.. in the north?

believe it or not, there seem to be some sunny days in the far north. we just so happened to actually catch one during our 5 days up there. not bad for a season where the sun pretty much never goes down (unlike some boats, as shown here…)

36 hours in the far north.

so, as predicted by me, this entry is about a wedding. in Oulu. the far north. of finland. *insertthenorthshallrisepunhere*

naturally, we expected snow, igloos, reindeers, eskimos, northern lights, santa clause and lonely drunk eremites, or in short: finnish summer.

only .. like.. 4 of those cliches were actually proven wrong.

first off, the wedding was a blast, the bride (and the groom) were beautiful, happy and looked like 100 bucks. here, see for yourself.
