Birdies num num!

 

Here’s a…feathered post dedicated to some of the birds one gets to see on Suomenlinna island, which is located in the Gulf of Finland, just 15 minutes from the port of Helsinki.

I recently visited the Finnish capital and I had the chance to walk around this beautiful place and take a peek at some bird species I’ve never seen before.

Head in the clouds…but down to earth!

On one of the few sunny days of these summer, we headed to a small village nearby.

Walking under such an amazing sky and looking at the distant horizon was a real pleasure. The fluffy clouds felt almost palpable and the blue colour was infinite.

That day we had the chance to relax from top to…bottom! Walking barefoot on a trail made of different natural materials was a really refreshing experience. It helped us “switch off”, calm down and enjoy the surroundings.

As green as it gets

Living in Lietuva, the “Rain Country”, I’m already used to unexpected showers. They would usually spoil a fine warm day and make me regret that I don’t have my umbrela with me. Still, thanks to these unexpected and not always welcome rainy interludes, the whole town has turned into a green paradise!

Here is the proof 🙂
