This time, I went for a longer period in Finland but It was too short ! I love Finland and I miss it …

We went to Lappi restaurant in Helsinki. One of the most famous one in the Finnish category. You’ll find more information about it in the Links section of this website.
After the restaurant, Amandine and I took a picture (I particularly love this one, maybe because I don’t look too much ugly on it).

We also decided to go and visit Tampere in the middle of Finland but it was not exiting at all !!! I just remember the good breakfast at the hotel and a boring ghost city. It was also freezing (around -20 or -30°C) so don’t even think about a sightseeing tour or you may lose your buttocks, cheeks, nose, eyes, .... in a word, you may literally die !

One picture of a church in Tampere (to save my fingers, I just took one picture there …)

And to finish with this article, some pictures of the Baltic sea in winter.

Just near the place where I took those pictures, was a sauna house and people were leaving the sauna to dive directly in the frozen sea (don’t worry, they cared about making a hole). For a French guy, it is quite strange to see naked people walking in the snow and having a refreshing bath in the frozen sea … without to say that my several layers and coat weren’t worse the -22°C.

See you and mind the cold !
