Outgoing cards on 30th August

Hello! ^_^ Yesterday I realised that I posted outgoing postcards last time in May... Over three months ago! I had a little break on writing postcards (again!) in summer.. I don't know why, it just happened. :)

I requested 6 addresses and the postcards will go to: Finland, Lithuania, Turkey, USA, UK and The Netherlands. Not so many usual countries this time.

The longest letter I've ever written!

Niina is one of my closest finnish penpals and we have been writing letters over three years now. We are talking on whatsapp and facebook almost daily. 

One evening we got a crazy idea, let's write extremely long letters to notebooks! But not like sending a notebook back and forth... I wrote a letter to a notebook which means 20 pages (written on both sides) long letter. :'D And wow, it was a huge work! 

I wrote that letter for two weeks, a couple of hours every morning and sometimes a few sentences before going to sleep at night. It was very hard to write the last pages so I asked my husband to write greetings to Niina and he did! Haha, so surprising... 

I was so excited to send the notebook to Niina quickly, so I totally forgot to take pictures of it! I had to ask Niina to take a few pics. :) 

How long is the longest letter you've ever written? :)

A week in Rovaniemi

I promised to write this post almost two months ago, but I totally forgot it. We spent a week in Rovaniemi in the beginning of July. My parents were in their summer cottage that time so we could stay in their home. ^^ Here are a few pictures from our trip!

Our geocaching map of Finland looks like this after that week!
