Helsinki, absolutely freezing! At one point it got down to -8 degrees and started snowing 🙂  It was a gorgeous city, old churches darted around the place.

Suomenlinna, the sea fortress of Finland. Six Islands which people still live on today, used in war times to protect Finland or taken by Russia.

Our penthouse apartment we stayed in the centre of Helsinki was rich with design, loved all the pieces the guys had put in it!!
