Uuden vuoden kunniaksi päädyin selailemaan läpi blogin arkistoja. Herkistyin. Monet muistot on jo ehtinyt jäädä taka-alalle, mutta mitä ihania muistoja ne onkaan. Kaikki ne hyvät ja huonot hetket, uudet ja vanhat ystävät, muiden kanssa jaetut muistot ja omat ajatukset. Niin paljon uusia kokemuksia. Itsensä ylittämistä. Toteutuneita unelmia. Vaikeita, kasvattavia aikoja. Miten kiitollinen oon silti ihan kaikista näistä kokemuksista, siitä heittäytymisestä minkä uskalsin tehdä. Opin kuuntelemaan omaa sydäntä enemmän kuin pääkoppaa. Ilman sitä, en olisi koskaan kokenut kaikkia näitä kokemuksia enkä tavannut näitä ihmisiä. 2016 oli mulle opettavainen vuosi. Tää vuosi jää mun muistoihin kirkkaana.
Tässä satunnaisia muistoja kuvien muodossa!

I was browsing through my blog archieve to see what happened in 2016. I got all sentimental. So many amazing memories, even more amazing people. All the good and bad memories means more when you share them with people you truly care about. So many new experiences, overcoming many fears, all the dreams that came true. Also the difficult times. I’m so grateful for everything I experienced, everyone I met. I learned to listen to my heart even more. Without that, I would have never went through all these things. This year will be a shining star in my memories.
Here is some of the best moments of 2016!
My year started at Woodford Festival while watching the first sun rays of 2016 with hundreds of others.
My dear friend Jonna was visiting Australia.
Mount Coolum with Jonna! <3
Lots of surf and acro -related visits to Noosa!
Climbing Mount Tibrogargan.
Lots of beach BBQ’s with these amazing humans!
Then our friends from Finland, Joona and Aku arrived to Australia. Here we are showing some secret spots of Sunshine Coast for them!
And trying to teach them some AcroYoga. Yeah, trying.
Generally enjoying of Australian summer. Ocean, beaches, waterfalls…
Celebrating Australia Day by building a massive floating device to float around the Maroochy River. Finished the day with delicious food plus some drinks and cricket on the street.
In the beginning of the year I met this girl. Frida from Sweden. It felt like we would have always known each others! We shared a common passion too:
February was also full of surfing.
And beaches. This here is Moffat Beach!
Highlight of February, climbing and camping for few days at Brooyar State Forest!
In March I met this surfer chick from Germany, Marie. We met when we moved into the same shared house. She woke me up before sunrise every morning to go surf. Love you! <3
Visit to Brisbane with wifey!
We had some spontaneous roadtrips and surf missions to Byron Bay and…
…and Gold Coast! I saw my first surf competion.
In March I shaved my friend Kristin’s long hair. Was very emotional experience, even though we are laughing in the photo haha! She raised 4600 dollars for The Leukemia Foundation and donated her long hair to make wigs for kids with cancer. Love her! <3
Lot of hanging out with some awesome humans again! Usually something to do with either…
…food or coffee….
Thanks to this girl, most of my mornings started (very early) with this. Waking up at 5.30, watching the sunset in the water. Definitely moments to remember.
We enjoyed Sunshine Coast as much as we could. Beaches, surfing, nature and every second Sunday of the month: little music festival called Peregian Originals.
I could never get bored with this nature.
Acro and music jams at Alex Wall, my home beach.
Fell in love with paddleboarding too. No waves = paddle boards.
AcroYoga was hard to miss in my blog!
Another climbing trip to Brooyar!
Alex Headland, was waking up to see this beach pretty much every morning!
Took part to few Ocean Tribe Australia -meetings. Full of girl power, surfing and yoga! Check out @oceantribeaustralia from Instagram.
World Environment Festival and my lovely roomie Mandula. Miss you! <3
Big swell came to my home beach and I watched it with my new buddy. Apparently it was cold?
Coffee moments at her home beach, Maroochydore!
Sneaky surf mission to Gold Coast to meet my favourite Mexicans!
Took part to one of the Great Acro Exchange in Brisbane. Was absolutely fantastic 3 days!
We had Swedish midsummer haha!
Had to say goodbye to my roommate, soulmate, surfmate and everything mate, Marie. Our last sunrise together at Alex and last coffee at Velo Project.
