And did you know that the first ever picture Indivue tweeted in Twitter was actually from Helsinki and from the Lasipalatsi inner yard in May 2013 – and 5 years later (and 800 INDIVUE tweeted images later) they had built this massive Amos Rex art museum over there. See the tweet below and follow Indivue for more travel and art to come!
Helsinki is well-known as a clean uncrowded city with a close distance to sea and nature.
Seurasaari is one of its islands offering lots of natural beauty especially during summertime. For a birdwatcher and a naturelover it is a pearl, within a short bus trip from the Helsinki centre. Seurasaari is a free experience except during Midsummer festivals in June.
Here’s an Indivue video of the birds in Seurasaari – enjoy the video attached.
This video from Seurasaari is part of Indivue’s Travel Opus to Europe. Read more about Helsinki here.

Indivue visited Barcelona twice within past one year and had planned to tell you so much about it. Unfortunately got puzzled by the tragic events in Barcelona’s Las Ramblas, and the big talk about Barcelona and Katalonia leaving Spain, that I really could not write or paint about Barcelona anymore. That is for at least some time now.
But just in case you are plannin to travel to Barcelona yourself, check all the reviews for Barcelona in Tripadvisor from the following link http://bit.ly/TripToBarcelona. There is, especially for Indian kitchen lovers, a nice restaurant recommended by Indivue. That Indian restaurant might even be the spiciest restaurant in the whole of Barcelona!
I did find another good Indian restaurant in Barcelona as well, and that is actually even better than the previous one. But like I said, I might write about it later.
The hashtags below, with Indivue’s Instagram painting Inspired by Barcelona, will take you to instaimages from Barcelona and other art related issues. You might want to take a look.
Last spring 2017 I did photography on all the Helsinki metrostations, from one end to the other, from Ruoholahti to Vuosaari, and made them into collages.
It was not an easy job, since most of the people passing by looked at me as if I was taking selfies only.
You know, Helsinki has alltogether 17 metrostations by the end of summer 2017, but here covered are all the 14 stations from Ruoholahti to Vuosaari only, because for a tourist those missing 3 metrostations, Myllypuro, Kontula and Mellunmäki, don’t have much relevance. But in case you wish to visit those places, you can change the metro in Itäkeskus and it will take you there.
Another reason is, that sooner or later, this same metroline I’m talking about, metro from Vuosaari to Ruoholahti, will take you all the way from Vuosaari to neighbouring Espoo city as well. So this article is also a salute to all the people in Espoo getting to know Helsinki, in addition to all the other tourists coming to Helsinki, Finland from all over the world. So here they are, with the photocollages and relevant links to Finnish introductions, to traveltips in English and to Insta images –
All the Helsinki metrostations from Ruoholahti to Vuosaari
Helsinki metro starts from Ruoholahti, which is two stops from the centre to the west direction.
Itäkeskus is the last metrostop where you can travel with any metro you take from Helsinki centre. After Itäkeskus you will go either to Vuosaari direction or Mellunmäki direction. Here in this article we will go towards Vuosaari.
