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.

finding new friends on the street.

recently, the rural city of Graz had royal visitors. one royal visitor, to be precise. Jan Federer, from Vienna. yes, the famous city, filled with fiaker, schnitzel and buttloads of culture. we gave our best and showed him around, trying to refresh his memories of years he lost here. because he lives in Vienna now. a better life. a more urban life.
first spot was this great curb in a driveway. Sam was the first to 5050 it.

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.
