UNDER CITRUS TREES, HAPPY 2015!
















Happy New Year 2015, many new beautiful adventures, sunshine, ocean waves and curvy roads to walk!

Happy to be back in a winter storm, skiing, drinking tea and reading your words again. Planning new adventures on painting table and around it too. While the wind covers windows in snow.

  2. This pictures seem so familiar to me. I'm Portuguese, and it looks like a beautiful city we have in the north. Have you been in Porto? A great year to you, Emilia! Love your work.

    1. Dear Cristina,

      You recognise your home well (: It is Porto and other photos are from Lisbon. So beautiful it was everywhere with delicious food, friendly people and never ending fascinating streets to walk.

      Happy New Year to you too!

  4. Olet ollut Portossa! Hieno paikka. Erään joulunajan olin siellä 15 vuotta sitten ja aina olen halunnut palata. Tosin muistan jäätävän kylmän hotellihuoneen, jossa nukuttiin kaikki vaatteet päällysvaatteita myöten ja silti ihan jäässä. Aamulla paljastui karmea totuus kun vedin verhot ikkunan edestä; ikkunalasia ei ollut ollenkaan! Vaihdoimme oitis majapaikkaa ja saimme tilalle jaetun kylpyhuoneen kuolemaa tekevän vanhuksen kanssa...silti Portosta on mahtavat muistot. Sen jälkeen jatkoimme junalla pohjoisempaan Viana do Castelloon ystävämme luo uutta vuotta viettämään.

    1. Olin, ja Lissabonissa suurimman osan ajasta! Kaunista oli ja maukasta ja oi kuinka ystävällisiä ihmisiä.

      Kuulostaa aika suurelle seikkailusi! Vähän vastoinkäymisiä ja niistä tulee varmasti parhaat tarinat jälkikäteen. Meillä oli onni saada paljon uusia ystäviä ja jopa yöpyä heidän luonaan, olisi reissu ollut paljon pintaliitoisempi ilman heitä ja tarinoitaan. Uusi vuosi vaihtui sitruunapuun alla suurissa juhlissa Lissabonin kattojen yli katsellen.

      Ihana tarinasi, kiitos siitä!

  5. Happy new year, Anna Emilia! I wish you many beautiful views, many memorable travels and many wonderful works!
    As I see you were in Portugal - I have it in my (distant...) plans. Sun, orange trees and fado :) But this must wait.
    Here it's quite warm (not as warm as in Portugal, of course, but the air smells like spring, really) and I still can't take up your challenge (barefoot in the snow). We will see what future brings.
    Again - best wishes in 2015!

    1. Dear Emilia,

      Lovely to hear that you also are planning a trip to that beautiful country. Wishing good luck and many nice moments to plan the trip!

      We got some fresh snow yesterday, and we linger in a few minus degrees. Hopefully staying like that as it is very lovely for skiing. Sending you a few kind snowflakes!

      Happy New Year to you too!

    I am sure you've had a fantastic time there, Anna Emilia!
    Now you have inner warmth to keep you smiling in the beautiful Finnish winter!:) Thanks for sharing these lovely photos!!
