For International Sleeping Day, we spent a night at Sokos Hotel Flamingo to experience the perfect night of sleep! Sleep is so important, and while many of us are home at the moment, it is a great moment to challenge your sleeping patterns and figure out the perfect evening and sleeping routine.

Seaside walks along the Helsinki or Espoo coast are a very popular weekend activity. Going for a long walk on a beautiful day, being out in nature, soaking up some sun and getting in some fresh air, and rewarding yourself with a lovely lunch or afternoon coffee and bun brings out many people – no matter the season. Both in bright winter and warm summer days attract lots of people out to these local gems. Save the map on the bottom, and plan your next weekend outings!
