Phew, that’s it. We’re done with Gishwhes for this year… or possibly, for forever. Misha Collins, our leader and overall Overlord, has hinted all summer that this may very well be the last Gishwhes of all times. At least, “as we know it”. So, now we wait and…

The capital of Finland, Helsinki, is not the biggest capital in the world: a little over 600,000 people inhabit our precious home town. Not many internationally famous films have been filmed in Helsinki (or Finland for that matter) either, but that didn’t stop us from sceneframing some of…

Ah, hotels! Even after hundreds of hotel check-ins all over the world, it’s always nice to check in to a new one. I spent a couple of luxurious, peaceful days at Hilton Helsinki Strand during the MATKA Travel Fair in Helsinki. And I wasn’t alone: my tiny dog Einari…

Is it ok to really, really love prison hotels? Or is that somehow creepy? I can’t decide. But I have to be honest, I really do adore them. I’ve stayed in two very nice ones so far: one in Oxford, England and recently, one right here in Finland. I…
