Trip to Moomin World: picture gallery!

On Tuesday we went to Moomin World. at first we had a plan to go on Thursday, but then i got a phone call from the hospital that they could operate Nader that day, so we had to change our plan. Nader is not allowed to 'get sporty' for the next couple of weeks, so we didn't really have a choice.

here's a picture gallery of our trip to the Moomin Valley

Bye bye Moomins, see you next year inshaAllah!

This is my beautiful birth town Naantali, where the Moomin World is located.

After visiting the Moomins we spent some time in Naantali just relaxing and having a snack.

The lovely Old Town in Naantali.

Naantali church. that's where I have been babtist as a baby.

More of the Old town

I just love walking there.. so beautiful! And some people get actually to live there..

The Old town is actually just next to the center, but looks like country side mashaAllah!

The Old town has many tiny alleys. This is one of the widest ones.

We had a really fun day and the weather was perfect! It was sunny but not hot, just good for a hijabi ;) . Alhamdulilah we got to go before my little man went to the hospital.


  1. MashaAllah the Moomin world looks like SO much fun! I love how much your kids enjoy it even though they've been so many times before! <3

    And Naantali is sooooo beautiful mashaAllah!!!! Wow!!!

  2. sis, they never get tired of it! they could go every day! actually we missed last summer because it's so €€€, so nader didn't even emember much about it, it was all new to him mashaAllah.

  3. asaalmu aliakum,
    I saw this when you posted it, but :omg: I forgot to comment. (I wanted to comment on everything but was busy at the moment).

    Anyways, the Old Town really does look like it's in the middle of the country, hehe, so funny that's it's acutally right close.

    Hehe, wonder what the church people when you pass them by now with your hijab- bet they don't realize you were baptized there :P

    Ma'shaAllah all the moomin pictures are so cute. I really feel like I was with you guys! The kids really look like they had a blast- and it's obvious why- looks like sooooo much fun!! A whole other world, hehe!!

    I love how nader hugged even stinky!

    hehe, the finnish president's got an excellent view ;)

    LOL at you making the bracelets anyways! ma'sahAllah.


    Jazaki Allah for sharing,


Even if I love talking to myself, it would be lovely to hear what you have to say! :P
