First, we drove for about 2 hours to the woods and did a couple hours of hiking in search of colours but to my dissappointment there was no such colours but instead we found mushrooms.
Still not feeling satisfied of what we found, when we came home everyone teased me that we have such colours in our own garden. OK, I had to keep quiet....
Last week, the kids had their one week autumn break and we decided to make a last minute trip to Helsinki, Finland. We stayed there for 2.5 years back in 2005 and we loved every moment of it.
While we were high up in the sky, we saw all the autumn trees and was so angry with myself for not putting the camera in my bag!!!!
This was a "memory lane" trip and I was quite emotional when we stepped into the country. Non of us felt like a tourist but instead we felt so at home - we knew every corner of Helsinki. We visited our old house and appartment and were curious who were living there!
Here are the views from our old appartment. During the cold winter, the water was frozen and we could skate, walk, cross-country, play ice-hockey and the famous finnish sport is to do ice-fishing! It was a great experience for all of us.
Combining all the colours from different places, I think I have found my autumn colours! Thank you for stopping by and have a nice day.
