Visiting something familiar

Helsinki cathedral and Christmas Market

Okay, this story needs to be told, tho. Even though I haven't posted for ages. Mid of December I was traveling back to Helsinki again, just for a weekend which was so much worth it. Reason: Jouni's birthday blast on Saturday. We got all that stuff together, booze and that sort of things, prepared lamb and deer meet for dinner and awaited the other guests. While having a few beers and some discussions we prepared for heading to the city centre – club Le Bonk it was once again!

I don't know how Jouni managed to play the basketball game the next day, still hangovered! In the evening, Sauna helped to get over the worst. On Monday morning we went shopping and had a little stroll out through the city before taking the flight back home!

Valencia and Palma just for quick

View from the hotel in Port de Sagunt

At the beginning of December, I had won a little business trip to the Cometa project. A trigger in the running Fault Recording System needed to be set - a little work and much travelling. Starting Monday evening to Valencia, I had a night in Port de Sagunt and at site in Morvedre before taking the early evening flight to Palma de Mallorca.

I had a few hours to walk through the city. Pretty strange, in winter time, streets and restaurants are full of spanish, or better said, majorcan people - no flood of tourist can be sighted. A warm and cozy atomosphere was spread. On Wednesday, I had another site visit in Santa Ponsa before flying back home after the job was done.
