Winter, snow and freezing cold temperatures – we have it all in Finland! But to be honest, this winter has been a kind of strange when it comes to weather. At least here in Helsinki, the capital of Finland. Temperatures continually fluctuate above and below zero meaning that it is either too “warm” with the snow melting or it is way too freezing cold with arctic winds.Currently we do have a thin white covering of snow in Helsinki but it seems to come and go. Lots of grey misty winter days with rain. But luckily also some pretty glorious sunny days when it totally feels like a true white winter wonderland!On a bright winter day nothing is better than going for a long walk by the seaside to enjoy the fresh outdoors and crisp sea air. If the weather stays freezing cold for a longer period of time there is a good chance of the sea being covered by a thick layer of ice. This makes it possible to walk over the frozen sea offering a huge playground for outdoor activities such as skiing, skating, hiking and walking the dog. Suddenly small islands off shore also become a lot closer, just a short stroll away, no boats or bridges needed.During the past few days we have enjoyed such perfect and sunny winter days so with this blog post I want to send lots of snowy postcards and wintry greetings from the white winter wonderland of Finland to all my dear readers around the world. Thank you for reading and following my adventures around the world, near and far!Which one of these wintry postcards would you pick and send home from Finland?
