Helsinki Photo Diary

Friday, August 12, 2016

Helsinki is definitely a place that I'd like to revisit. People were nice, there was a ton of diversity, and the design shops looked incredible, although it was VERY expensive. Because Helsinki was the last leg of our trip and given the ups and major downs we had, I was exhausted. It rained non-stop (except for one afternoon) so we couldn't see much and many businesses were closed. We only spent two days walking around and even with that, I just couldn't get a feel for the city. This seems unusual to me as normally I can have an idea of what the city is like in just a few hours. Have you ever visited a city and just couldn't figure out where things were and what to do/see? Have you been to Helsinki?

Have you been to Helsinki? What did you think?


  1. I want to go to Finland since I live in Sweden and have been to Norway and Denmark, kinda complete the Scandinavia countries! I will say though that for the price I have a hard time because it looks so like Sweden!

    1. The price really was crazy. We also would like to visit all of the Scandinavian countries but have Norway to go. I am also struggling about visiting Norway because of the cost. Scandinavia can be expensive!
