helsinki thoughts and snaps

three trolls in helsinki

I'm glad to report that despite health issues - and no, still not feeling better... - the little trip to Helsinki was fabulous! It really is such a pretty city, filled with wonderful and interesting architecture, fantastic design, nice people - although I was very surprised how few that seemed to speak Swedish this time around compared to some 10 years ago when we were there last... - I'll write a proper "random thoughts on..." about it soon, but for now, here are a few snaps from the recent week, when two Swedish trolls roamed the streets of the city (picture evidence above).

Marimekko temptation EVERYWHERE...

I've fallen behind on blogs lately, but am delighted to see you've had a wonderful trip, in spite of not feeling well.
