I had the unexpected opportunity to spend a few days in Helsinki thanks to a friend of my dear friend from Turku, who was a wonderful host & companion during my short visit to the Finnish capital........ KIITOS for your hospitality, Eka!! :)

I visited Helsinki for the first time when I was 17 years old..... so that means several years ago LOL. It was a very short visit as it was one of the ports of call for the cruise ship I was spending my vacations at and which made a lovely journey around the Baltic Sea. I didn't remember much about that visit because I didn't see much of Helsinki in the first place. This time, however, I had the chance to see much more of the city and I definitely liked it very much. I would gladly go back as I had the opportunity to experience once again the warmth and hospitality of Finnish people and I had a great time and felt very welcome in this country which isn't really similar to mine but which makes you feel like at home!
