Days like this day are the reason why it’s worth surviving the kaamos phase we have to go through every year, that is those three months in late autumn/early winter where there is absolute blackness everywhere, constantly.
Days like this day are the reason why I love to live in Finland and I find this country extremely fascinating.
Days like this day are the ones that have the power to charge me like no summer day can do.
Days like this day are so bright that you have to wear sunglasses as the snow is reflecting the sun and everything is so white that your eyes hurt.
Days like this day compel you to go out in the woods to wander in this beautiful winter wonderland and make you forget that’s it’s so cold that you cannot move your fingers anymore to take pictures with your camera.
Days like this day have the power to make you feel some sort of interior peace and calm that are so unique and precious.
Days like this day make you think, there, alone in the woods, surrounded by trees covered in some magical sparkle, that everything will always, somehow, be alright.
To take these pictures I didn’t have to go really far: this is our bedroom view. Not bad, huh?
Friends, if you’re ever planning to visit Finland, I can say you with my deepest honesty that this is the time to come, in my opinion. There is nothing that can beat this winter wonderland, full of light, glitters and fresh air. Remember to bring sunscreen and sunglasses with you if you’re planning to spend time outdoors (which I highly recommend!).
Have a wonderful weekend friends! Spend time with your friends and don’t forget to spend time with nature as well, it makes wonders for our mood 🙂 These stylish wooden sunglasses are from the Finnish brand Pöllöt.
