Isn’t it funny how adrenaline can carry you through for months and it’s only when you STOP, that you really take stock of what’s been going on?

A Tasty Food Tour Of Helsinki with Heather’s Helsinki

Getting to know Helsinki on a food tour of the city!

I’ve said it time and time again on this blog, but my favourite way to get to know a new place? Straight through my stomach! So what better way to understand what makes Helsinki tick than on whistle-stop tour of some culinary hotspots on Heather’s Helsinki Fork In Hand food tour?

We met tour guide Heather under the Stockmann clock in the centre of the city. Heather’s not a native. Originally from Tasmania, Australia, she’s lived in Helsinki for 15 years. In some ways seeing the city through the eyes of someone who had moved there gave us a better understanding of its quirks. Rather than growing up with them, she’s experienced them as a newbie – making them easier to identify.

Let’s rewind to the  beginning of the year. In this post I outlined my new year’s resolution to focus a little more on what’s on my doorstep. I just couldn’t quite turn my back on jet-setting, but I did discover there were tonnes of amazing places right here in the UK. I loved my weekend of country manors and wild horses in the New Forest, and just a few weeks ago I segwayed, kayaked and ate my way around the Isle of WightContinue reading 5 Reasons Your Next UK Getaway Should Be To White Cliffs Country
