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

Bitten by the wanderlust bug years ago - I have become an eyewitness to and documenter of the world’s divergent cultures (92 countries and counting). Photographing vistas that take my breath away, extraordinary architecture and connecting with everyday people doing everyday things. I am constantly reminded that a smile is the same in any language, that making a connection with something so simple is beautiful. Watching my photography transform from using a point and shoot in the old days to the new love of my life - the incredible Sony a7rii mirrorless camera - has inspired me to do more, take chances and seek out the unknown. I’m also a wife, mother, yogi, pilgrim, burner, skier, scuba diver and gypsy. “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ― Pablo Picasso
