Ten Days, Nine Flights

by Satu Vänskä-Westgarth on October 1, 2015 · 14 comments

Life has kicked onto a whole new gear.

My other half has been criss-crossing Europe in his van and ten or so kayaks on top for the last few weeks. “Mummi” i.e. the Finnish granny picked up the kids from Oslo, Norway and shuttled them to Finland for a break. And I have been flying, flying and flying. Norway, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland, Denmark and Finland.

Due to next to no internet in the last week even my Instagram account has been strangely quiet, and hence I thought I’d give a sneak peak to my new, possibly “one of the absolute favourites” travel destinations. Meet Greenland through Visit Greenland!

 

Now it is time to take a deep breath, sit back and enjoy few weeks with the family, until it’s time to go again. New York here we come!

I’d love to hear in the comments if you have any tips for NY! It’s almost 20 years since my last visit…

It’s been ages since I last participated in Instagram Travel Thursday here on the blog. If you want to join in too check out how to go on about it on Skimbaco Lifestyle and see below for more travel & Instagram related inspiration!

Gorgeous, gorgeous pictures – I am definitely keen to get to Greenland after falling in love with Iceland already this year.
