Bird photography in Seurasaari island, Helsinki, Finland

Helsinki is well-known as a clean and uncrowded city with a close distance to the sea and nature.

Seurasaari is one of Helsinki’s 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 center of Helsinki. Seurasaari is a free experience except during Midsummer festivals in June.

Art and traveltips for Barcelona

Indivue art inspired by Barcelona

I visited Barcelona twice within the past one year and had planned to blog you so much about it. Unfortunately I got puzzled by the recent tragic events in the Barcelona street Las Ramblas, and also by the big talk about Barcelona and Katalonia leaving Spain, that I really could not write nor paint about Barcelona anymore. That is for at least some time now.

But just in case you are plannin to travel to Barcelona yourself, do check all the short reviews I wrote for Barcelona in Tripadvisor from http://bit.ly/TripToBarcelona. There is, especially for the Indian kitchen lovers, a nice Indian restaurant recommendation by Indivue. That Indian restaurant might even be the spiciest restaurant in the whole of Barcelona!

There was also another good Indian restaurant in Barcelona. It can actually be even better than the previously mentioned one, but like I said, I might write about it later, so stay tuned.

Now let me introduce to you the digital painting inspired by Barcelona.

The hashtags below it will take you to instaimages from Barcelona and other art related issues. You might want to take a look at them as well.

Do remember to follow and share INDIVUE travel and art in social media for more inspiring traveltips to come!

Helsinki metrostations from Ruoholahti to Vuosaari

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 –
