Helsinki, Finland

UspenskinBrrr…… Winter has arrived.  The days are mostly gray and the blowing wind makes for cold temperatures.

Helsinki became a free nation 99 years ago winning its independence from Russia.  Ironic that we are traveling on a ferry from Helsinki to St. Petersburg, Russia without a long visa process.

We checked out the local highlights in Helsinki and headed to Provoo (the second oldest city in Finland) for the day and favored Guinness at an Irish pub called Molly Malones.

About Paige Shaw

Hi! I'm Paige - a freelance travel photographer. Let's go on a photo journey across the globe. The aim of my work it to show you the many layers and exquisite textures of a locality; its character, culture, people and beauty. Bitten by the wanderlust bug years ago my husband Bill and I set out to see the world. 2013 gave birth to a travel blog ( chronicling our journeys so that curious family and friends could follow in real time. From that beginning so too a photographer was born. Honing my skills over the years I am now excited to narrate our discoveries with imagery! As you glimpse my art - join as we explore together. Be sure to throw your fashion ego out the door cuz there's no room in the carry-on luggage. Sunrise shots start at 5am. Hiking to the top for a different perspective will definitely get your blood pumping and you might even need to role up your pant legs to capture those closeups on the water…. Most of all - get ready to SMILE - it's the universal language. I’m also a wife, mother, yogi, pilgrim, burner, golfer, skier, scuba diver and expert wanderluster. “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ― Pablo Picasso
