San Francisco TOP 3

San Francisco TOP 3

As Finnair starts non-stop flights from Helsinki to San Francisco, it’s a great reason for me to go there for a little getaway holiday. It’s also one of my favorite cities to visit in the US but until now, it has felt a bit too distant to visit regularly. The new straight flights starting on

Quality time in the air

Quality time in the air

A three-hour flight is already quite a long one. You can take a nap and even get a bit bored. And that’s not to mention longer flights. Here’s my short list for your flight: Watch a movie. Download a classic movie about your destination to your tablet before your flight.Especially if your are on a

I really never understood the negative discussions in the media by public persons of their bad memories of school or airline meals. Pretty much waste of your “15 minutes in fame” if you have nothing else to say. And what an unhappy holiday it has been if there’s nothing else to tell than details about

The most positive news of 2015

Heavy metal midsummer

Heavy metal midsummer

It was one of the busiest summer Thursdays at Helsinki-Vantaa airport. It was Thursday before the midsummer weekend which really starts the holiday season here. It also used to be a busy weekend if you were in a local happening band – it was the busiest weekend for the summer festival season. Like I said

Straight is better

For me a holiday means to be away from home. When I first think of the word “holiday”, comes a palm tree in my mind. A palm tree, sun, smiley with sunglasses would be my emoticons to symbolize a holiday. The best ever is that you can start a holiday already from your home airport.

The Art of Packing

At some point last year I got a feeling that I was travelling more than ever before. I haven’t kept any personal statistics, but it might have been true. And after a couple of setbacks with travel logistics, I wasn’t enjoying travel that much anymore. I was traveling so much that negative experiences started to

Almost home

The 69 Eyes played its first gigs some two decades ago in Helsinki, followed by other venues around Finland. Soon after that, the band followed in the footsteps of Hanoi Rocks by playing clubs in Stockholm and later in the UK. After the turn of the millennium, dark and melancholic Finnish rock took over the
