So for my second Helsinki post (just a quick one today) I wanted to show you some of the nature I came across during our visit. It was not what I expected but there are so many green spaces in Helsinki which really sold this beautiful city to me. Just around the hostel where we stayed at the Olympic Stadium there was a big wooded park to wander around, and a lake close to the centre of the city!
This is actually a Red Squirrel like we find in the UK (mostly in Scotland) which are much more common in Scandinavia. I didnt realise their coats turn grey-er in winter.
