A dose of Mökkilyf before leaving FinlandsteemCreated with Sketch.

in photography •  26 days ago 

Next weekend I'll take off to Thailand for a month, and just before that I had a chance to enjoy some mökki (cottage) time in one that is of a family of a friend of mine. In Thailand there's no cold to be seen like there is in Finland, so in that regard it's like heaven for me (or hell – 30+ degree in a tropical climate is gonna be really hot for my Finnish ass). But there's a charm in wrapping up in warm clothes, setting the fire to the fireplace, drinking hot liquids in a candle light and cooking stew on a cast iron pot in a baking oven like an OG Finn. Only thing missing is a rifle to hunt down some moose, or a spear, depending how hardcore I'd want to get.

oh wow these shots are really awesome, I especially love the forest and mushrooms, I would like to take a walk there for sure xxx

Thank you! A walk in the forest while picking up some mushrooms is a good de-stresser.

This flag was NOTHING PERSONAL and nothing against your content....I enjoy all different types of steem content. You have delegated steem power to curangel or ocdb who is down voting me and others who don't deserve it with massive amounts of SP. (making this war personal to me and others) This type of "trust" makes this place decentralized because you are giving them YOUR voting power to decide what is right and what is wrong for Steem. I am down voting anyone who delegates to them and anyone who "follows a flag trail" from them and I will continue to do so forever until people remove the delegation from Ocdb& Curangel and spend the down votes and issue flags themselves. If you flag my post, I don't mind one bit, if it was your own idea and under your own free will. I wont tolerate when others get to decide what is good or bad with YOUR steem power. Sorry mate but, I am not gonna stop because they are not gonna stop. This is my only recourse and others just like me feel the same way. If you simply remove your delegation from curangel or ocdb this will never happen again, if you don't....i will be here every single day like the taxman until you do. If you feel what i am doing is wrong, remove your delegation and down vote me every single day under your own free will and i promise you i will never retaliate once. Fair? Curangel & Ocdb will now most likely upvote your post to counteract my flag and you will even come out better in the long run so don't worry. This method of madness is not good for Steem, horrible for Steemit and centralizes a decentralized platform. I am tired or the overlords at Facebook, YouTube and Google. Supporting Curangel and Ocdb is promoting the exact same thing in my opinion.Just think for yourself, that's all i ask people to do.

Lovely shots! I love how we share such beautiful nature - you Finns and us Estonians! (Also hi @ Vana Tallinn bottle :D)
