I’ve just got back from spending the bank holiday weekend in Helsinki and by the looks of these photos, I spent the majority of time drinking tea or champagne! However, please believe me there was actually a lot more to my trip than that. I was primarily there to watch a family friend in concert performing in her first arena concert. My travelling companion was my mum which together with the concert made for a brilliant few days away. The concert itself was beyond wonderful and after it was over we still had plenty of time for some sightseeing, shopping and A LOT of chocolate eating. In particular, at the hotel we were staying at which had the nicest chocolate eggs on tap and with it being Eater weekend can you even feel the teeniest bit guilty about eating chocolate?
The weather was below zero and absolutely freezing which made stepping outside a ‘layer wrapping up’ mission every time, but it never really seemed to matter and I had the lovely chance to spend time with my mum and explore the capital of a country which half of me originates from.
