Have you heard of GENTRI yet? I was able to hear them perform live and now I'm telling everyone about them. :)

You're welcome. ;)


Recently Gentri joined with Madilyn Paige to raise awareness of O.U.R. (Operation Underground Railway). If you want to see real life Heroes, check them out. If there ever was a cause to get involved in - this is it! Help save children from sex slavery. It makes me sick to think that there is even a demand for child sex slaves. Shame on anyone who hurts children! One day your judgment day will come.

[Finland trip, part I]

I went to Finland at the end of April. The weather was still quite cold - about +8C and windy on most days. The proximity of the sea makes the wind chilly. 
My trip was mainly to spend time with family so I don't have much to show you. But I kept snapping photos as I was out and about in Helsinki.

Did you know Angry Birds originates from Finland?

The railway station was designed by Eliel Saarinen.
The sphere lamp holding dudes of that building is one of my favorite things in Helsinki but I've taken pictures of them before so not this time.




The Lutheran Cathedral, "tuomiokirkko".

Sibelius monument.
Jean Sibelius was a beloved Finnish composer. 

Cafe Regatta.
Loved this cute little cafe!
