It’s been a busy year. I’ve traveled quite a lot, but also pushed my studies forward, got married, made a bunch of new travel blogger friends and booked a trip to Japan for March 2015. Busy but rewarding year behind – and I’m looking forward to the next year with excitement. Remember that you can also follow my adventures on my other blog, Metallia Matkassa (though it’s written in Finnish).

Manhattan after dark

Heavy rain combined to numerous neon signs made Manhattan and Times Square look like an endless sea of lights, as the puddles of water mirrored colours spreading along the streets. Tourists strotting around Times Sq. were hiding under their umbrellas, trying to find a better shelter from the rain. We took advantage of the awful weather and put our camera ready for some great nighttime photos. I was holding an umbrella, trying to protect the camera while Markus was taking the photos. Finally, when the rain stopped and the streets looked even more beautiful – our camera decided to run out of battery. Maybe it was a sign, that not all moments are meant to be photographed.
