THRILLS

FEELS LIKE BACK IN THE CHILDHOOD DAYS. HERE ARE SOME ADVENTURES FOR YA. 

********************************************************

Yes, we will shout it out to the world until everyone knows it: Helsinki is World Design Capital 2012! Freakin’ awesome! Here are all the infos you have to know! 

******************************************************************

Yes, we are very sporty, but in a “Lords of Dogtown” kind of way. We love the idea of taking a sightseeing tour by longboard. Get some inspiration here! 

******************************************************** 

Wooden rollercoasters don’t exist? Liar! Linnanmäki's adventure park is worth it. On this ride, your date will definitely include a lot of body contact…time to hold your lady tight! 

******************************************************************

For those who are still or already awake at 6 am, start your day at the Yrjönkatu Swimming Hall, it’s a piece of art itself. Nice to freshen up before the big sightseeing tour. Little inside knowledge: you can swimm naked there…

******************************************************************

For the early birds who love to do some sightseeing a bit differently, catch the Tram 3T or 3B, first train departing at 6am. Beautiful way of seeing all important sights and attractions which lay along this route and even take a picture of the first rays of light!

******************************************************************

Partied too hard the night before? Book yourself into a morning in the Spa. Guaranteed relaxation! 

******************************************************************

Yes, you can also stay centered in Helsinki, doing the Mantra thing with a Finnish instructor at the Yoga School

********************************************************************

The Bear Park was formerly occupied by all the shady folks of town, but nowadays, flowers and cafés make it a nice area to linger during a sunny afternoon. 

********************************************************************

Helsinki has 48 nature reserves, and yes, they are so close to the city center, just hop on the train or bus.

Haltiala's old-growth forest is amazing in summertime as well as Uutela, Viikki and Lammassaari, the latter also known as Lamb Island.  You will get the feeling of being Columbus, when you walk around the island, climb the bird watching tower and take a break at the small allotment cottages. Yes, you can also find some Mammals hanging out in the countryside. 

******************************************************************

Let’s go for a day trip to Suomenlinna, yey! As the favourite spot for Mikael from the French Films to have a hangover brunch, this goddess of a thrill has 8 islands and only 850 residents. Where the streets have no names…

******************************************************************

This is very important: keep your pretty eyes open when you enter a bar or shop in town. We Are Helsinki is the free mag that gives you all updates about what’s going on right now! 

********************************************************************

Finland art is now exported to our lovely city Berlin! So fresh and so clean! Helsinki FRESH is a Finnish cultural export agency which promotes Finnish design and culture abroad. In the Direktorenhaus you can find an awesome exhibition from June 15th - July 8th. Let’s get it on! 

******************************************************************

Either you are in Helsinki, sipping on your morning coffee or in any other city. This little cute Finnish blog Alice-June is something to make your day shiny.
