A weekend in pictures...

You may have seen my post last week, 'I'm not here' where I gave you a little update as to why I wasn't being very active on the old interweb. I will spare you all the details for fear of being too much like my Mum and repeating all my great stories two or three times just to make sure people are listening.

Anyhoo.. I have finally dragged my lazy arse around to uploading some pictures from my weekend away with the rents-in-law and the better half. First stop is Helsinki, the Radisson Blu Plaza and their delicious Kitzens restaurant.

Seriously comfy bed!

I'm such a repeat offender of the Radisson Plaza in Helsinki! It's right in the centre of the city which means all the shops are just a hop and a skip away, what more could a girl want? The food at Kitzens is mouth-watering. Teamed with far too many sparkling wines and white russian cocktails means that a very pleasant night was had indeed!

Next stop was this stunning villa in Padasjoki, a few hours north of Helsinki.

Not a bad view!

Keen much?

Braver than me!

Throw in a few sessions in the sauna, followed by a splash in the lake, (how could you not in Finland?) and you're pretty much up to speed!

Have you been up to anything fun recently?

  2. This looks like such a great time! I lived in Germany for two years and I sure do miss those Euro saunas!!

    1. The saunas are the best, aren't they!? Especially jumping into the lake when it's all icy! Thanks for commenting xx
