Our days at sea

People ask quite often when on island “So, what do you do here then? Like how do you spend your days?”. It is super interesting, as nobody asked it from me when we lived in the city. Question is related to “Where are you children?” when you’re out having a good time, or “How can …

Votive ships of Seili

Seili is an island in inner archipelago located north to Nagu at 60°14.4′N 021°57.7′E. I’ve been waiting to pay a visit on the island, as it has super interesting/horrifying history as a leprosy island and later a madhouse for mentally ill women, what ever that ment back in the days!

In all branches, on micro-, macro-, meta layers. Individual is affluent, when community is content, and community is content, when there is no ego and vested interests overriding common interests. …

Home harbor

Oh, it really happened. My home is in the middle of the beloved Baltic Sea, on a small island Utö. And it feels so right.
