Why is it that Helsinki is hosting all those amazing events that rock the world with innovation, badassness, creativity and the best speakers? Why…
Tampere is a city that completely surprised me. Despite being the second largest city in Finland, I hadn’t really been here except for a transfer to the nearby airport, but other than that, I had no idea of what to expect of this little weekend trip. The city welcomed us with a quirky vibe of the local art and design scene, and a fantastic selection of restaurants and food options.

Getting out from the city for a weekend is the easiest thing to do in Helsinki – with many great destinations being in reachable proximity. The stunningly beautiful lakeland region of Saimaa is only one of many. Within a 3 hour drive you are in the middle of Finnish nature at its greatest.
A few impressions from my short trip to Belfast in the end of February. The Capital of Northern Ireland city surprised me with great weather, very nice people and a beautiful city centre that is fun and easy to explore.
