Best winter escape ever: Italy!


It's been a long, tough and wet winter here in Finland. We hardly got any snow compared with previous years... one day is below zero and snowing, the next day is gray, rainy and slushy.
I know there are still few months left, but I'm officially done with winter - unless he brings us some snow. Snow is pretty.

After 6 years of living in Finland, I soon realized that it is absolutely necessary for your psychological well being to break up the winter into manageable chunks of time. That is why I try to organize at least one escape during the winter.

This year I managed to go to Italy with my friends... just to full myself that winter is over, at least for a week. It was fantastic!!

We went to Rome, Naples and Procida and here you have a sneaky peak from the trip!

I hope this winter escape gave me enough energy to survive until summer... at least we got plenty of calories to fight the cold.

P.S. Oh! I just realized this is my post number 100!!! Kudos to me :-)


Cheat the season and escape the cold weather for a little while and go on a winter warmer holiday to Tenerife. - See more at: http://worldtravelbuzz.com/travel-escape-cold-winter/#sthash.d1Pvrhtw.dpuf

    1. Yo siempre digo que no hace falta ir muy lejos para viajar! Tómate un bus al pueblo de al lado y te das un paseo por algún lugar que no conozcas.... voilà! ya estás viajando :-)
      Besos desde Helsinki!
