Helsinki, Finland

Stepping off the plane in Helsinki my first impression was that it was cold… in spite of the fact that it was a sunny spring day and (according to the Finns) it was warmer than it had been for months , it made me realise how much I take the warmth of southern Europe for granted. Second impression was that it is very clean, modern and full of bicycles. Helsinki is the land of great design, Marimekko and the Moomins… all of which shows in the culture and community. People here are generally quite stylish (something that my friend Nani thought ridiculous, so it seems they don´t think of themselves that way) but practical and not flashy… with a little bit of quirk thrown in here and there. We spent 5 days exploring the city… this is Helsinki.
