RED REIDING HOOD: Travel Hei Helsinki skyline city finland night

 Photo source: Paradiseintheworld

Last week my boyfriend surprised me with someting very exciting: We’re going to Helsinki (capital of Finland), how cool is that?! Very cool if you ask me! I’ve always wanted to go to Scandinavia. First of all, because of the minimalism in architecture and fashion, I really love Scandinavian style. Second of all, in my thoughts Finland is a beautiful country. We’re going during wintertime, December, so for the first time in my life I will be experiencing a real winter (hello thermowear), which I think is pretty cool. Besides the pretty winter scenes, another advantage of visiting Helsinki during this time of the year is the fact that it’s (ice) hockey season! If you’ve read my about page, you might know that my boyfriend and pretty much the rest of my family are hockey players.

But the real point of this post is gathering tips! Have you ever been to Helsinki or Finland in general? I’d love to hear about your experiences get some tips. For example: Nice places to go out for diner or the best shops (I already got BikBok, GinaTricot and Lindex on my list ;)). Do tell!

Lots of love,

Ps: ‘Hei Helsinki’ is Finnish for ‘Hello Helsinki’ ;)
