ONE DAY IN PARIS | LE MARAIS

I said I did not have any more old photos to post and that it now starts to get serious and I actually have to get up and run around Amsterdam to provide you with new Amsterdam posts. But oh well, I almost forgot I spent one day in Paris this summer and of course, travelling with Cosi taking photos all the time is obligatory. It was just an afternoon, really, on our way back from Spain to Germany when¬†we hitchhiked along the Atlantic Coast and then took busses from Nantes to D√ľsseldorf, but an afternoon in Paris is still one of the greatest things to happen, especially when it is a warm late summer day and the light is so beautiful and the air so warm.

[CITY GUIDE] HELSINKI

Three deadlines and many more meetings made it impossible to finish this post even though I had it prepared for a while now but here we go, finally, the CITY GUIDE for HELSINKI! Having had already in mind I will be posting it I ran around Helsinki super excited, bookmarked every cute café and nice store and now have many, many places to show you. Helsinki is barely 2 hours away from Amsterdam so no excuses to go and plan your next city trip РBarcelona and Lisbon are so much more fun during summer anyways.

TALLINN TRAVEL JOURNAL

With Estonia being only a few hours away from Helsinki I took the chance and visited its capital during my trip to Finland. The ferry ride there was cold and windy and maybe not the nicest part of the day trip (but hey, I got to see some very Finnish cottages) but the time I had in Tallinn was much, much better. I spent the day just walking around, exploring every corner of the old town (which, admittedly, looks like a real-life-fairytale-town), having vegan burgers with a view over the city and simply enjoying the atmosphere.

HOTSPOT: WHY JOIN THE NAVY WHEN YOU CAN BE A PIRATE

If you like cool, fancy places, want to see where the locals work on their MacBooks and don’t mind spending 5‚ā¨ for a cappuccino Helsinki is heaven. (I mean, not only then, there are other¬†reasons as well but let’s say there are these kind of places all over the city!) We had lunch at this super nice caf√©/bar¬†called “Why Join The Navy When You Can Be A Pirate”, located in Helsinki’s Design District, Kamppi, and besides the perfectly fitting¬†paintings, beautiful walls and massive windows my roasted veggie sandwich was pretty great¬†as well.

FINLAND TRAVEL JOURNAL | NUUKSIO | HELSINKI ARCHIPELAGO

Not only is Helsinki packed with nice places and neighbourhoods and cafés and museums, it also has an incredible location making it super easy to experience Finland and its beautiful nature without really having to leave the region. With water all around the city exploring the area by boat is by far the coolest thing to do (go and quickly make some Finnish friends!) and Nuuksio National Park, less than an hour away from the city, seems like the perfect picture book Finland.

HELSINKI TRAVEL JOURNAL

My first journey up north, (further north than Kiel in Germany that is).  Spending 10 days in Finland was such an amazing experience: exploring Helsinki with my Finish friend Peppi, a day trip to Estonia, hiking in national parks and cruising around the Archipelago on a speedy boat. Helsinki as a city is just beautiful, packed with cool cafés and inspiring people, cute boutiques, restaurants, museums Рand so, so much water everywhere. So here is to my first time up North, my great Finnish host and nordic summers spent on a boat.

[CITY GUIDE] LONDON

It’s been a while now but spending the last few weeks far away from my laptop, without any (well-working) Wifi and only limited mobile data I hadn’t had the chance to post anything. Until now, I’m back home for a few days, with the post-travel depressions setting in and many new posts planned.¬†London is already a month ago (feels like 5 though), but I still managed to take some notes and show you some of my favourite places I have discovered while spending the weekend there. So here we go, a small city guide to a city, where probably half a million city guides already exist for.

RECIPE: GAZPACHO – REFRESHING SPANISH TOMATO SOUP

If there is something the Spanish definitely know how to do it’s food. Think of tapas, paella, patatas bravas… But my absolute favourite Spanish (actually Andalusian) dish is Gazpacho, a refreshing cold vegan tomato soup which is so easy and quick to make you will not want to make anything else anymore for the rest of the summer.
