It was the 8th of February last year when I started this blog on a completely spur of the moment decision.
The blogging world quickly swallowed me whole.
Since then, WordPress and I have been inseparable. There have been happy times, confusing times, and everything in between.
In retrospect, it was an uncharacteristically great spur of the moment decision.

After introducing my blogging goals in my first post, I started off by blogging about Argentina, which was my most recent long trip.
One of my favorite experiences in Argentina was going whale spotting, which I wrote about in My Whale Story.
You can find the posts from Argentina and other places that I’d most like to showcase grouped into the different menus of my blog: click away and explore!
If you don’t feel like exploring menus, here’s a short, personal Top 3 list:

Like postcards, my travel posts can be short or long, shining the spotlight on an image or a moment.
The idea of this blog was originally formed around my never-ending desire to stay warm and visit sunny places, since I somehow ended up living in a place where summers are way too short (though beautiful).
Though it’s still winter here, surely the snow must’ve melted by now somewhere else in the world. Where should I go next?
So I started blogging about past travels, re-living the best moments.
But I quickly discovered photo challenges, too, and became something of an addict.
My very first photo challenge entry was Dreaming of Orange Summer Evenings. What a newbie I was back then! I edited and edited that gallery.
Lately, I’ve been tempted to adjust my blog’s direction towards doing more photo posts that aren’t travel-related, but just photos in general.
I started a series called Local Discoveries, which is a nature photography theme I’ll be serving up every now and then, as a sort of side dish.
Blogging has been so much fun! Thanks, guys, chicos, les amis, ragazzi, tack så mycket, kiitos!
