This blog began in 2010 to document the mega-project of renovating our first home together- a crumbly, old, damp Victorian cottage on a quiet cobbled street, next to an old piano factory in London. We fixed that place up, found out we were moving up to Helsinki, sold up and moved up! Now we call Finland home (at least for the next year or two) and spend our time trying to make our (rental, sadly) flat as cosy as we can while enjoying exploring all this country has to offer.
I'm a bit of a hobby photographer and by trade am a graphic designer. Banoo is a mathematician (topological geometer, to be preicse) and a mad professor. I'm not bragging either- he seriously is! He's the logical process guy, I'm the "Ooh! Shiny!"-and-then-completely-distracted girl. We make a good team.
And why the name Süsk & Banoo? Well, funny story. For the longest time Banoo called me 'Süsk', which I thought was his slightly-wrong but really charming way of attempting, in German, to call me "sweet" (süß). No. Turns out it means cockroach in Persian. Gee, thanks. So I began calling him Banoo, which means Distinguished Older Lady Madame, or something to that extent.
We're both 32, now too, egads.
In a nutshell, that's us!
