Heaven on earth! Finnish summer cottage Part2-Lemon Chocolate pound cake

After a great holiday in Vienna, was on vacation hang-over for almost week, the reason for late part2. Coming back to summer cottage, yes this time we were again on the lake side, but weather Goddess was in bad mood, we had gray clouds and showers! We spent evening indoors. Sitting in front of large window we could see whole lake thro’ trees. Trust me I could sit hours staring. Sometime silence are best for humans, I had time for introspection, clearing my wandering thoughts finally some peace. within few hours I felt like my mind was devoid of thoughts, which is very rare. God heaven, felt light relaxed and happy.

Heaven on earth! Finnish summer cottage Part1 – Mint garlic chicken for BBQ

These days am dealing with mixed feeling – happiness and sadness, for the reason that I will be winding up my thesis early next year (fingers crossed) and equally sad that I will moving out of Finland after 5 years. Finland is my 2nd home now and I have been so much into. God know where my next destination will be? So I will miss Finland, as its the best place on earth, when it comes to nature and there are few location in this beautiful country, the  moment I land in those locality I forget myself and the rest of the world. One those types are Summer cottage. For two years I have stayed in summer cottages. Last year it was more fun as many of  my friends were there, and it was very primitive cottage without  electricity, felt like living in middle of forest. We just had cottage to sleep and little kitchen. So it was something like going to stone age staying with nature beside lake side, men did fairly good fishing and we BBQ food and lived like prince and princess of forest. Not forget to mention about almost 24 hrs day light and wonderful smoke sauna.
This year it was few of us, just myself Somjai her husband Tero and Somjai’s Russian friend. So it was more or less a peaceful time, everyone had there own time, basically being yourself. Again our cottage was on lake side but…..Sorry guy am flying to Vienna tonight so will write more in detail in my next post till then enjoy the preview and the BBQ chicken I made for the trip :)
