Starting our trip through scandinavia!

Hey Ho!


In the last days in Hiirola we, among others, went to another icehockey game. After seven seconds Jukurit shot the first goal of five! The game was really good, like the other games ;)

Another thing we did, was to establish some furniture for the kids room. The kids got some new stuff and therefore we had to build eight Malm- cupboards, two sofas and some hallstanders. It took nearly a whole day for the three of us doing this. But now we are experts in establishing Ikea items :D

This we had to do inside, but we also want to mention what we did outside. Firewood is always necessary in the winter. In the case you have an oven. And in this house there are a few of them! So we made some firewood. It was really cool and funny! We did it for the first but not for the last time ;) Before we could swing the axe we had to bring some big branches away. They were quite heavy! But hey, we are two strong girls :D

In the evening we often played "Wo liegt was?" or "Stadt, Land, Fluss". Ok, the first games weren´t the best ones... But training makes a champion! Or do you know exactly where Guinea-Bissau is?


All in all, we had a wonderful time here! And we want to thank everybody here for making this time to a great experience! We learned so many new things and we never had expected that we would build a fence or a stable one day. However, now we have done this and also a lot of other things out- and inside. And we also got to know lots of new people and once again we realized how small the world can be. German people everywhere :D

Now we are looking forward to the next days, because we will travel and see all the scandinavian capitals.


The last three days, we have been making a short stop in Helsinki and we did lots of sightseeing. Thankfully, we could live at family friends of Leena. They live a little bit outside of Helsinki and the couple has a very sweet baby girl called Lilly.They are really nice and we really enjoyed the days at their place. Thank you!<3

Helsinki is a beautiful city and we both think every one of you should at least go there once an see it! Especially, Helsinki at winter- time is really nice.We walked through the city a lot and saw the most important sights of Helsinki. There are two big churches in the city, which you can reach from the harbour. They are both rally really big and worth seeing.

Furthermore, we saw the Parliament, Finlandia(the congress), the Olympic Stadium of Helsinki and we walked through the city center, which is directly next to the railway station. By the way, the railwaystation is really worth seeing too! We also went to two museums: the Finish National Museum and the Military Museum. Both museums were really nice, but we both were very fascinated by the Military Museum. It had really nice and interesting exhibitions and it was very interesting to learn about Finland and it’s role especially during the Second World War.

Yesterday evening, we walked at the harbour of Helsinki and we both enjoyed it a lot. From the harbour, you have a beautiful view of the city and the two churches, but also a very nice view on the seaside and the boats lying in the harbour.

Today, we didn't do very much. We just went for some shopping in one shopping centre with Laura and little Lilly and enjoyed the last hours in Helsinki.

Once again, we want to say thank you to all I those who made this stay in Finland so perfect! We had so much fun, learned a lot about Finland but also about ourselves, made new friends and saw so many new things! Kiitos-thank you<3

Something new

Hey guys!
Time is running so fast and it is so difficult to find some minutes for writing this blog. We did a lot in the last week. Saku and Jörpi are having an outside stable now. It was not very easy to fix everything exactly because of the uneven ground and all the wood in that area. However, now it is good looking and the horses like it! We often see them standing under it. Especially when we built they were walking around watching what we were doing there. One evening it became dark so we had to take extra lights to finish our work. And the final result is really good looking!
And we also build some boxes for their hay. The old ones were a little bit broken and we had some timber, so we fixed two other ones. These are bigger now.
And what happened next? The donkeys ran away... It was already 11 o´clock in the evening and dark outside. First we searched with headlamps and by foot, but then the neighbours found them on the field so we jumped into the car and drove there. After catching them we had to walk home and thankfully the distance was not long!
Therefore we started to build the fence today!
We also went shopping together. We have never bought so much food and stuff... But we are a lot of people and therefore we all need something to eat! Our cart was full of things! :D  
After working the last days we had a free day yesterday. So we decided to visit Mikkeli and spent the day there. First we wanted to go to Mini-Golf but it was outside and to cold for playing... Therefore, we got some lunch and cacao and then we watched...: what do you think? Of course, Icehockey! :D Jukurit played against Sapko once more. And the game was really good. In the first 20 minutes the players seemed to be a little bit tired but in the second and the third they gave everything. In the end Jukurit won with 4-3.
We also play a lot of dart in the evening when it is dark outside and we can´t do more. And we are getting better and better! Some day we will be champions... :D And another speciality of us is baking Crepes with chocolate. We had to try a few times but now they are really tasty!
So, enough for today! We are going to play another round of dart now!

Hello guys!
Yes, we are still alive if you had some doubts :) We have been doing a lot the last days. To start off with, we've been at ice hockey one more time. This time we had probably the best seats: in row one, directly behind the team! And Jukurit actually won the game!
Furthermore, we were at the vet yesterday with ALL the dogs, that means we were there with six dogs! :)
Yesterday we also made one of the horse fences donkey-proof :) the donkeys from Virtasalmi are coming here today and they will share the area with the horse Jussi. Unfortunately, we had to do most of the work in the dark and that was not so funny...
Today we were in Kuopio with Kati. We were in a shopping center which is next to an IKEA.  Kati bought some stuff for the home and at the same time we did a little bit of shopping in the center....
Moreover, the last week we've been quite busy inside of the house. We helped to turn one room into an area for the dogs. This area is supposed to be useful especially when the weather is bad. The dogs are dirty and wet after playing outside and in this room the can dry and they don't make the rest of the house dirty :)
That was pretty much it, of course we have done more stuff all days long. However, they are probably not wort mentioning :D
See you!
Lara and Johanna
