Let it snow!

Helsinki, -2 degrees

As I mentioned around Christmas time, this winter has been exceptional in Helsinki in many ways. We actually had to wait for snow until week five this year, and ever since it's been snowing! Right now we have about 30cm of snow in Helsinki, it's stunning! And if the predictions are accurate, we'll have another 20cm in the two following days! Just have a look at these stunning photos that have been taken in Helsinki!

This last picture has been taken before the heaviest snow fall that we had this week, because now even the tram tracks are covered with beautiful snow!

 I've been busy as a bee spending my time at the largest travel fair in Northern Europe - The Nordic Travel Fair Matka 2012! We have over 70 countries represented here right now-how exciting! The travel fair is Finland's biggest fair having a stunning 83 000 visitors! Have you ever been to a travel fair?

Yesterday I spent my day by browsing through the other stands. I especially liked the ones concerning Italy, Sweden, Israel and the USA. I also went to a seminar from travel professionals which was very informative and interesting.

Today on the other hand I have been standing at the Helsinki stand, and I must say that it was insanely busy today between noon and around four o'clock. My feet felt like two balloons when I came home so I had to take a foot bath straight away, haha!

My workplace has introduced a new representation outfit for this year's travel fair, designed by Finnish Ivana Helsinki, and here you can see some pictures of me wearing it! What do you think?

Tomorrow I'll take some photos of the actual fair and our huge 250m² stand for you!

  1. Oh wow, so much snow! It looks beautiful! It actually just snowed here a few days ago, ruining our mild winter! I love the upside-down snowman picture! That is so cool! Also, that dress looks so beautiful on you. Green is your colour!

    I love the fact that it is snowing over there in Helsinki, here in the Netherlands we still haven't had any snow what so ever. So enjoy it!

    1. We had to wait for snow until the seventh of January so we're happy to have it here in Helsinki now! Snow is definately a part of winter if you ask me!
