What I'm talking about is my trip to Helsinki in fall break. I went there to visit my finnish "sister"/canadian roommate (Lived with her in Canada).
It was an absolutely awesome trip, and I couldn't have wished for a better way to spent my holiday :)
Instead of blabbering on about how fantastic it all was (ok, maybe not the weather, but everything else) I'll just show some pics :)
We were at the finnish national library, and found some really old books. This one was a danish lexicon, and I found the town where I live... back when it was a farm and fields :)
This was a little very modern and minimalistic chapel, placed right next to a shopping center
We spent HOURS in this awesome thrift store - and found many good stuff
In "Kiasm" the finnish museum for contemporary art
We went to Talinn (Estonia) one day - it was an absolutely beautiful city, with so many old buildings. These following pictures are from a little cozy café with a kinda midieval feel to it.
After several days of raind and gray weather in Helsinki, it was nice to get a bit of sun!
Enjoying our delicious (and surprisingly cheap) dinner at one of Talinns best recommended resteaurants
