Okonomiyaki, the Japanese pancake

Posted by on May 18th, 2012 in England, Europe, Food, London, Photos | 26 comments

[Not a valid template] I love social food, you know, food that you share with others. I also love food that you can play with; so there is more to it than just moving it from the plate to your mouth with your fork and knife. Okonomiyaki is just the sort of food that fits both these requirements. It’s a sort of Japanese pancake, if pancakes were even more awesome than normally, think bacon and cheese! Abeno in London...

The Hanoi Bia Hoi Corner

Posted by on May 13th, 2012 in Asia, Photos, Vietnam | 7 comments

[Not a valid template] Everybody who has been to Hanoi seems to know the Bia Hoi corner in the old quarters, Bia Hoi being the local beer. It is surprisingly low key considering how famous it is. Talk to any backpacker who has recently been in Hanoi and they know of it. It is just a corner in the old quarters, which has fairly popular Bia Hoi place on it. For those of you who don’t know, a Bia...

Top 5 Things to do in Rainy London

Posted by on May 7th, 2012 in England, Europe, London | 30 comments

[Not a valid template] London does have a lot to see and do, but it does also rain quite a lot around here. Rain of course is part of the “London experience”; well that’s what we keep telling anybody who comes here, so that they don’t get too depressed when that mist really turns into rain. And as much as it is part of the experience, it also is a pain when it comes to sightseeing. However, there is...

London Marathon – it’s Total Mayhem out There!

Posted by on April 22nd, 2012 in England, Europe, London | 12 comments

[Not a valid template] I was out of food, there was nothing left. I was starving, but no supplies would make it in today. I was afraid to go out. The streets were blocked, and there were people running and shouting. I couldn’t see it from my windows, but I knew it was total anarchy out there. There would be no cars, no way to get through. Not today! Today was the day of the London Marathon! I wasn’t...

Exploring the Cu Chi tunnels

Posted by on April 17th, 2012 in Asia, Vietnam | 18 comments

[Not a valid template] If you go to Vietnam, lots of the places of interest are about the war. You know which war I’m talking about of course. Usually called the Vietnam War, but since we are in Vietnam it would be silly to call it the Vietnam war, so in Vietnam they call it the American war, which makes sense. And Cu Chi tunnels is as good place to start your tour about the American War (the Vietnam...

Posted by on April 7th, 2012 in Europe, France, Photos | 14 comments

[Not a valid template] I missed skiing last year, so I was very excited to head to the Alps this year. We have quite a big group with which we go skiing every year. Last year however around ski season I was busy enjoying coronas and tacos in Mexico and learning to surf; so no skiing for me. Being from Finland, I suppose I learned to ski about the time I learned to walk, and I do love it....

Learning from the wise waterfall in Sabang

Posted by on March 19th, 2012 in Asia, Philippines, Photos | 18 comments

It’s not the destination usually but the journey that teaches us. [Not a valid template] And this seemed to be the case with the waterfall I was heading to in Sabang. Armed with only vague instructions of walking along the beach for maybe 20 minutes, I set on my guest. I didn’t even quite know what to except of the waterfall. I had heard a local describing it as 100 meters high, but I was taking this with a...
