Picking baby names

Posted by MrHakalaMrHakala

So we’ve picked out a name for our baby girl (now I can check that of my list) and I’ve got to give credit to the missus, she did the hard work of finding suitable candidates :) As before we wanted something a little more unique that would still sounds good in several languages.

For the unique part the Finnish Population Register Center and their Name Service was a ...

BucketList to the rescue

Posted by MrHakalaMrHakala

Got this great link/image from a friend. I guess the original meaning of the picture is that the Internet is one of the greatest distractions of the “modern age” (to which I have to agree :) Your daily to-do list of chores always seems to come in second place. Even more so now if/when we have Internet on our mobile phones.

But what if you’ve got your life ...

3 Funreals and a ...

Posted by MrHakalaMrHakala

I’ve had the misfortune to attend 3 funerals this year (as yet). Some more close than others… It seems as if it’s a new stage in my life. Less weddings more funerals :(

Needless to say I’ve had time to reflect on my own mortality and I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to add some post-mortem goals. Yeah, yeah … I know bucketlist is about “living ...

Camping near Skibotn

Posted by MrHakalaMrHakala

After camping near Skibotn we headed northeast not sure where we should head. Finally we arrive at a “cross-road” either we we hop on a ferry that will take us (part of the way) too Tromsø or we continue on the road too Alta. A coin flip later we are on the ferry, which in it’s self was an experience.

A short drive and another ferry drive later we ...

We're in Norway

Posted by MrHakalaMrHakala

So we continued our road trip from Övertorneo,Sweden along the Tornionjoki river on the Finnish side. After a grueling 391km we finally arrived in a rainy Kilpisjärvi. Needless to say not very inspiring camping weather. So even though we had a new and unused tent in the back we opted for a hostel/hotell room.

A nice sauna bathe and well slept night later we headed for the Saana ...

Finally on our way!

Posted by MrHakalaMrHakala

So last night we finally got everything packed and set the alarm to 6 am. Can’t really say I was that fresh this morning, but we did get on our way about as we expected. Actually only 15-20 minutes late. That included only one quick turn back. This doesn’t mean we remembered everything. In the car, well on our way north, we gradually started to remember stuff we ...

Getting ready for our road trip to Norway

Posted by MrHakalaMrHakala

We’re getting ready for our road trip to Norway. Just got to get all the camping sh*t together.

  • Got a new 12V grocery cooler to keep everything nice and … eatable.
  • New family sized tent with a “baggage room” and separate inner-tent. Nice!
  • Trangia (outdoor cooker)
  • 2×4 sleeping bags … overkill, maybe. You never know what kind of weather conditions you’ll bee facing.
  • more to come …
