There’s December and then there’s December

It’s been unseasonably warm in Finland for the past couple of weeks. As weird as it sounds, that’s not always a good thing even up north in Finland.

No, not quite this warm. Anyhow, this here is what December ideally is like. I could be enjoying beaches, surfing & sun in the day and warm, soft & pleasant evenings.

.. if I lived somewhere else, that is. Or at least if I were visiting somewhere else. Like last year.


On the other hand, winter in Finland can also look and feel quite nice.

Like this one here from 2004. Not too bad, right? One could even imagine enjoying this kind of a scenery for a while.

Unfortunately, the winter wonderland of this northern country is not quite up to snuff all the time. Like, for example, when it’s “unseasonably warm”. Like this winter.


So instead of the above two alternatives, this is what we get this time around. In case you can’t really see anything in the photo, it’s because it’s pretty much always dark. And rainy.

I’m in such a wrong country right now.

    India seems to the perfect place to be around this time. The last time I saw sun was when I was in India.
