Visit Helsinki : Clarion airport hotel

May 27, 2017

How grandiose can be an airport hotel? I have always avoided staying at the airport hotels, unless that was the only option due to my flights either taking off too early or being canceled. Even with that, I have stayed at the airport hotels maybe 3 or 4 times. When I do travel abroad, I’m not your super cool “Airbnb” gal which scores big time some super cool place for the fraction of the price you’d pay for staying at 4 or 5 star hotels. When I travel, I do want to have everything ” top notch ” and feel like I’m treating myself every moment of the trip. Great hotel with the high standard services and policies is one of the major links of making the most of my trip and being 100% satisfied with the money spent on, as I like to say, pure hedonism.

March 23, 2017

One of my favourite recommendations on where to go and eat, because as a self proclaimed, certified foodie and bon vivant, I’m always keeping my eyes and ears open on what good new spots have opened up in the city as well as what’s on the offer in some of the good, old favourites such as Gaijin!  Continue Reading…

Visit Helsinki: Little Paris

November 3, 2016

What are the odds that while visiting middle of North Europe, Helsinki, you get to experience the charm and romance of Paris? It is possible at restaurant Pastis! Authentic Parisian vibe, delicious food and coziness of the restaurant’s decor could be easily misplaced with any place in Montmartre for instance. Our sweet hostes Camilla told us that there are many Pastis named restaurants in Europe ( in US too, for example in NYC ) but there is only one Pastis in Helsinki and it’s a must visit place.

Visit Helsinki: Farang

September 29, 2016

First ever to open restaurant by Matti Wikberg and Tomi Björck was Farang. After Farang came another 4 restaurants which create BW restaurants that are equally successful and operating in Helsinki ,Finland and Stockholm, Sweden.

Farang brings your senses on a foodie trip to Southeast Asia, with strong Thai influences, where the “magic” of food lies in sharing it from big bowls and eating a lot of the dishes by using either spoon or with fingers.

Farang oli ensimmÀinen Matti Wikbergin ja Tomi Björkin avaama ravintola. Farangin jÀlkeen 4 muuta ravintolaa ovat myös avanneet myöhemmin ovensa. Ja kaikki nÀmÀ BW ravintolat ovat yhtÀ menestyksekkÀitÀ ja ne toimivat HelsingissÀ ja Tukholmassa Ruotsissa.

Farang tarjoaa Foodie matkan aisteja Kaakkois-Aasiaan, höystettynĂ€ Thaimaan vaikutteilla. TÀÀllĂ€ ruuan “taika” perustuu jakamiseen isoista kulhoista, syöden joko lusikalla tai sormin.
