Helsinki: Linnanmäki Carnival of Light in Photos

Dark and cold October evenings are here in Helsinki again, and so is the fun-filled Linnanmäki Carnival of Light. During the festivities of the Carnival of Light (Valokarnevaali) at Helsinki’s legendary amusement park Linnanmäki, thousands of colourful lights illuminate the park until late in the evening.

During the past few years it has become a tradition for me to go on a stroll in Linnanmäki during the festival, take photos and soak up the spectacular lights and colours. It is such perfect therapy for the body and mind during the dark and cold season.

This is what Linnanmäki amusement park looks like dressed in colourful lights this year, nothing quite as stunning as last year by very pretty, colourful and entertaining anyways: Continue reading

Rhodes in Blue and White

When you think about Greece, what is the scenery that you picture in your mind? I always picture Greece with whitewashed houses with blue doors and blue windows by the shimmering Mediterranean Sea. Or narrow lanes dotted with small traditional Greek tavernas with blue chairs and tables.Rhodes_chairs_blueIt is not surprising that blue and white are the national colours of Greece and also colours of the Greek flag, which I am sure Continue reading

Helsinki Street Art

During the past few weeks I have discovered a totally new side of Helsinki – urban street art of Helsinki. Now that it is summer I commute to places mostly by bicycle instead of car or public transportation. This has totally opened my eyes to new things such as urban art.
