Winter walk in Mikkeli / Caminata de invierno en Mikkeli / Balade hivernale á Mikkeli / Caminhada de inverno em Mikkeli

In English:

Snow and winter arrived in mid-January 2015. I made nice walk on the area which I have presented earlier in one of my summer posts and to make comparison with this post, I give the link to it after my photos. This quarter called Emola is the living museum. This means that houses You see are not luxury houses, but they are ordinary houses as they are seen and there is life on the other side of the windows.

I tried to find different types of architecture even many of them have similarities. Enjoy seeing this old residential area of the small town called Mikkeli.

En español:

La nieve y el invierno llegaron a mediados de enero de 2015. Hice agradable paseo por un barrio, que presentaba anteriormente en uno de mis posts de verano y para hacer la comparación con este post, me doy el enlace a él después de mis fotos. Este barrio se llama Emola es el museo vivo . Esto significa que las casas que se ve no son casas de lujo, pero son casas normales y que son como son vistos así y por favor recuerde que hay vida en el otro lado de las ventanas.

He intentado encontrar diferentes tipos de arquitectura, incluso que muchos de ellos tienen similitudes. Disfruten viendo esta antigua zona residencial de la pequeña ciudad llamada Mikkeli.

En francais:

Neige et l’hiver sont arrivés à la mi-Janvier 2015. Je ai fait belle balade sur la zone que je ai présenté plus tôt dans un de mes postes d’été et pour faire une comparaison avec ce post, je donne le lien pour après mes photos. Ce quartier appelé Emola est la musée vivante. Cela signifie que les maisons que vous voyez sont pas des maisons de luxe, mais elles sont des maisons ordinaires comme elle sont vues et souvenez-vous qu’il y a la vie de l’autre côté des fenêtres.

Je ai essayé de trouver différents types d’architecture, même beaucoup d’entre eux ont des similitudes. Savourez de voir ce vieux quartier résidentiel de la petite ville appelée Mikkeli.

  4. It is an enviable snowy photograph!
    Japan is like spring warmly from December. Because only the northernmost district (Hokkaido 北海道) has the snow, I cannot ski. I’m sorry.
    Miki does not have the white birch.
    A monkey climbed the white birch in the area that I visited in winter

  9. I really like that architecture, and the colours that are used. Winter or summer, it’s lovely! What type of heating do most people use? Are your windows double glazed?

    Comment by Yvonne — January 5, 2016 @ 13:08 | Reply

    • Helllo Yvonne.

      Thank You for Your kind comment. Old houses, like these in my photos use generally oil for heating. In our previous home house, we had electricity and additional warming source was heat-storing fireplace. It gave warm for two nights. It required firewood from 5 to 7 cubic meters during winter including warming of our Sauna. We had also triple glazed Windows as we have in our apartment also. Triple glazed Windows are general here as we have them in our apartment and central heating.

      Happy New Year 2016.

      The amount of snow and cold varies from one year to the other here. In 2016, winter arrived a little bit later than other years. Winter started very cold. When writing this, we have -26ºC / -14.8ºF. Thank You visiting my blog and leaving Your comment.

  12. What a beautiful town this is! The wood siding, fences, lovely paned windows, and bare trees create many interesting lines. I’ll bet everyone is cozy inside! We just looked at the weather conditions at our home in Alaska (Kenai Peninsula) and it is 40 F and raining. Climate change is quite obvious in Alaska – is it for you too?

  23. It looks so beautiful! The homely colourful houses are a very nice contrast to the white snow as well as the clean lines of buildings and fences form an interesting contrast to the soft lines of the white and fluffy blanket of snow. I like it a lot.
    I just compared it to your summer photos! What a difference! ^^

  25. Those photos are breathtaking in their winter dressings…….the white of the snow is perfectly set off by the deep rich reds, whispers of light green & delicate yellows. Each photo caused me to pause and explore—–and imagine—-what was going on in each cozy home. Thank you so much for sharing and New Year Joy to you and your dear wife!!!!! Along with hugs…………………….

    • Hello Connie.

      Thank you commenting and making a question. It is birds’ feeding “house”. There many different and this is most probably self-made. Its meaning is help small birds to live over winter giving to them seeds. Many birds love sunflower seeds, so it is most popular. Occasionally some squirrels visit-feeding houses. Also small birds love grease. They are sold in small mesh bags.

      Have a great day!

    • Hi Keiith.

      It is lovely, this small birds’ feeding house. People here have warm heart and they help small birds to survive thru winter by giving to them seeds.

      ありがとうございます.

  36. What a lovely neighbourhood – love the houses. It looks so cozy!

    I have to ask, does Mikkeli mean anything special? Back in my home town in Finnmark there is a spot along the river that is popular for fishing that is called Mikkeli. I think it must come from Finnish.

    • Hi Inger.

      Thank You commenting. Well, Mikkeli is small town, beautiful and By the Lake Saimaa. The word Mikkeli is in Swedish S:t Michel, but Mikkeli is pure Finnish word. S:t Michel comes (according to Wikipedia) from Michael (archangel). It was very interesting to read that the word Mikkeli is Norway.

      Have a wonderful day!
