  1. Good luck with the move !

    • Hello.

      Thank You to everybody who encouraged my wife and me when moving back to our birth town Helsinki from Mikkeli after 30 years. The move was not a piece of cake. We decided to pack all those things, which fit to our (2) cars and bigger objects to transport by a van. This meant that we made 15 one-way trips between Mikkeli and Helsinki. The distance is 248km / 154mi and multiplied by 15, we drove 3720km / 2311mi and all these in three weeks.

      Packing, boxing, carrying to cars, placing inside, driving, unpacking and placing them on our floor. We could not make next trip before there was room for the new load. Yet today many things wait to find their “final” place in our home. When moving, it is time to throw away objects, which we have not used for years, so garbage cans have been in daily use. Our problem was mainly books – too many books, because we read much. We had huge amount of books and now the amount is reduced to about 1500 books.

      My next post I will publish next Wednesday in which I present best sculptures of a sculpture park consisting about 250 sculptures which one man made during 35 years (lifework). Until then. Matti.

      • Congratulations!😉 You made it! Matti, I hope you and Anja will have time to recover from the big effort. Glad to hear that you managed such a lot of car trips between Mikkeli and Helsinki. Enjoy your new home! After a while all the still remaining things will find their final place.
        I’m now looking forward to your new blog post that you announced in you comment above!

        Have a nice week (and not too much work at your new home) !

        • Hello Michèle.

          Thank You for Your kind words. I am glad that You left Your comment here. We were lucky, because the weather was mainly sunny and quite warm. When driving to the North it was wonderful to see how to dawn. Many times we joked that all the truck drivers noticed that there we go again one after the other, red wine red and navy blue car.🙂 Anja sold her car to my son after the move, because in Helsinki there is no use for two cars. It served nearly 14 years without any problems. Sigh.

          Have a great day!

      • I can’t help grinning a bit. Renting a storage space in the neighbourhood you would have been able to transport all in a moving van and saved yourself a lot of travelling, not to mention gasoline!🙂
        I have had one good rule in life:
        Things you haven’t touched in a year – throw it away! You’ll probably never be touching it again later anyway!

        • Thank You.

          Well we had to live in our old home until our brand new was ready in Helsinki. In Mikkeli, there was no storage (small town) and think double work: to move all to a storage and then again move them to Helsinki. Our gasoline costs were 740€ for two cars. In Finland, we are used to drive long trips, so driving was no problem, but a great fun after all because we love driving. When our Mikkeli home was empty, we started to sell it. Thumps up!

          Our new home, although it is in Helsinki, is surrounding by pines and rocks. Trip to the center of Helsinki takes less than half an hour.🙂

          • I think you misunderstood me a bit?
            I ment ‘storage space’ in Helsinki!
            Then you’d have one ‘long haul’ and dozens of short ones inside of Helsinki (when you had the time)?
            If one doesn’t throw things away, it will amount to ‘truck loads’ as times go by 🙂

        • Hi Takami.

          Thank You. My tip for Your move is. Start throwing away things, which You have not used for years. We are still doing it. Next time when You buy a new thing to Your home, throw away one thing at same time. In Finland, we have saying: “things have the tendency to fill the empty space”. This applied for us.🙂

          すばらしい日を過してください。

    I hope the move with all its packing, boxing and unpacking will not be too stressful for you and Anja!

    • Hello.

      Thank You to everybody who encouraged my wife and me when moving back to our birth town Helsinki from Mikkeli after 30 years. The move was not a piece of cake. We decided to pack all those things, which fit to our (2) cars and bigger objects to transport by a van. This meant that we made 15 one-way trips between Mikkeli and Helsinki. The distance is 248km / 154mi and multiplied by 15, we drove 3720km / 2311mi and all these in three weeks.

      Packing, boxing, carrying to cars, placing inside, driving, unpacking and placing them on our floor. We could not make next trip before there was room for the new load. Yet today many things wait to find their “final” place in our home. When moving, it is time to throw away objects, which we have not used for years, so garbage cans have been in daily use. Our problem was mainly books – too many books, because we read much. We had huge amount of books and now the amount is reduced to about 1500 books.

      My next post I will publish next Wednesday in which I present best sculptures of a sculpture park consisting about 250 sculptures which one man made during 35 years (lifework). Until then. Matti.

      • Books? Never throw away a book! You can eventually give them to a local bibliotheque or (if in english) it is possible to give it to an humanitarian association for the less fortunate.
        You did a huge trip back and forth… a little rest is now important!
        Take good care, serenity :-)claudine

        • Hello Claudine.

          Thank You. We have tried everything, but it seems that nowadays people do not have time to read.😦 Only some garden and hobby books are selling.

          Have a nice day!

  16. Gosh, it must have been tiring for you to move everything yourselves backwards and forwards over such a long distance but at least it’s finished now and you can relax a little. Sorry that I missed this post earlier!

    • Hi Marion.

      Thank You. We are happy in our new home. It is situated only 30 minutes from the Centre of Helsinki by bus and Metro. Buses go frequently, every ten minutes. The view from our Windows show rocks and pines. We have made already some walking tours and found our surroundings interesting and beautiful. Sea is at the walking distance with view of Helsinki. In 2018, they start to build the bridge between (Finland longest bridge) Helsinki and our home. Then we can travel by tram directly or to walk / bike to the center. Matti.

  17. Having moved just last year, I know how hard it is especially when you have lots of collections and treasures. Much happiness in your new home.

    • Hello Karen.

      Thank You. Yes, packing unpacking and placing items take lot of time. We threw away quite much things, which did not need during last four years.🙂

      Happy weekend!
