A face in the crowd

This week the Daily Post encourages bloggers to find a face in the crowd. On my recent trip to Milan, I managed to convince hubby to visit the Monumental Cemetery with me. There, these statues were just a face in the crowd. xx


I haven’t taken part in The Daily Post’s photo challenge for a while and started missing it. This week you are encouraged to find something or someone sweet to share. I decided to look at some sweet stuff from Tanzania.

Evanescent Cherry Blossoms

Yesterday I made my way to the Roihuvuori neighbourhood to catch a glimpse of the evanescent cherry blossoms at the Kirsikkapuisto (Cherry Park). There’s not many places to see sakura in Helsinki and if you are not quick to go when the flowers have bloomed, you might miss the whole event!


Last summer our last stop on our three week sailing trip was an island in Estonia called Naissaar. The island used to be a military base, ensuring security for whoever happened to be the ruler on Estonian land since the 1730s.

Thursday Doors

As you walk along the Aleksanterinkatu street in Helsinki, you surely won’t miss the grand building where the department store Aleksi 13 is located.
