Helsinki in the eyes of a Toy Voyager

We spent a couple of days in Finland's capital Helsinki. Here's what we saw!

We went to a Charles Chaplin exhibition:

Saw the high tower of the Olympic Stadium:

Some swans and ducks by the water bank...

Posing with funny mascots in front of a Mexican restaurant...

And admiring a former runner legend

Checking out the main Cathedral in the city...

... and a funny street artist playing with bottles :D

Rönttöset and Rachel's last day in Finland

On March 17th we took a tasty journey to the world of eastern Finland's traditional foods.

These are rönttöset, rye crust pies filled with sweetened mashed potatoes and lingonberries. They are very popular in the region of Kainuu where the city of Kajaani is located.

We took Rachel to the post office and set her on her way to Japan.

Have a safe journey, sweet & cuddly Rachel!! <3

Kajaani Castle


Fred, Prajna, Rachel and our newcomer Bossa-Nova visited the ruins of Kajaani castle, an old fort from the 1600's. It was very exciting! Steep staircases, dungeos, thick stone walls... (:
