It's cold. Very cold. Too cold. It's windy. And it makes it even more cold. To make things worse, one of the biggest snow storms of the year, supposedly, hits the country. Yippee!

So it's cold here in Finland. And everybody is saying to us, it's been the so warm! And the sad thing about it is that they're right. I read in the Finnish weather forecast's webpage that it has been the warmest winter ever. The thing is, March, is supposed to be the beginning of Spring. Not the beginning of late winter... Oh well. One has to cope with whatever weather and this is what we've got now. Snow, cold winds and a very grey sky. The problem is, we got too used to the sunshine!

Otherwise everythings fine! We had a hectic 2 week period. After flying to Helsinki we spent couple of days in Turku, met Mom and friends, then headed to Vaasa, met friends and then to Kokkola for Easter to visit Carolina's family. We've had many cups of coffee, pints of beer and drinks of vodka while back so on the liquid side of things we should have recovered pretty well.

Carolina started a class in school pretty much immediately and I started work at my old work this week. So it's pretty much business as usual. The biggest change by far I guess is that now we are officially living together. Shouldn't be a problem after sharing a tent for over 6 weeks, hey? 😊

We're determined to finish our studies before our next big adventures but I guess you never know what might happen... 😊

We'll post some "nice" winter pics when we get them on the computer. We've lost our camera cable somewhere into our bags or something. Yes, we know. We are hopeless 😊

Love ya'll and thanks for following our journey through our blog. I will later post a blog about things that surprised me in Australia.

Jani & Carolina
