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.

Today’s short video comes from Benaulim Beach, which is rather peaceful and child friendly beach in South Goa, India. Video here was shot before the tourist season has really started, and you can still see them shacks being built.
Truth is stranger than fiction and Bollywood can be everywhere, when you travel in India –
I stopped by to photograph this beautiful building, the palace called Jal Mahal in Jaipur, which was surrounded by water, together with its beautiful reflections, and fantastic singing was echoing from somewhere. You can hear it in this short video, the music playing in the background.
Later on, back in Finland, I made a short video of some of the photographs I took from Jaipur and composed my own music to the background. You can see that video and some of the visual delights of Jaipur, the Pink city in Indiahere.
After this short video of Jaipur, India, and Jal Mahal with nighttime reflections and tabla, more related videos will follow, so do take this visual adventure and subscribe Indivue for more travel and art to come!
It’s been a few years since my last visit to Gokarn. Although Gokarn is more of a place for pilgrims, it is still ok to visit there, if you’re interested in experiencing a more traditional Indian village.
Gokarn is a charming place, because it is not too modern. Some say, it is like a genuine India experience. It is located near Goa, in the neighboring state Karnataka, but it is still totally different from Goa, although you do get to see something similar in the inlands of Goa, far from the touristic areas.
This short video here gives you a short glimpse of the main beach in Gokarn, namely Gokarn Beach. There are the pilgrims and all the locals, tourists and fishermen together on this beach. But don’t expect to see sunbeds nor bikinis. Instead, from the nearby hills you will find three more beaches, namely Kudley Beach, Om Beach and Paradise Beach. These beaches are populated with Western tourists with mostly hippie mindset.
These photos attached here were taken in 2007, and originally published eleven years ago in January 2007 in Indivue’s blog. Back in those days, in 2007, the memory cards of digital cameras were not very big, some 2Mb maybe, and they got full very quickly. I remember there was one small shop in Gokarn, where they shifted your photos to a dvd, so that a traveller could have more space in one’s camera and take more photos. Then again, back in the guesthouse, one had to shift the photos to a computer and from a computer to a memorystick, and then go with the memorystick to an internet cafe in order to blog the photos. That’s how the blogging in India was back in 2007.
This other Indivue short video from Gokarn village shows the local cows caressing each other and describes well the atmosphere in this village. Gokarn, you know, means “cow’s ear”. Find travel tips for Gokarn from Tripadvisor here and more Indivue photos from Gokarn here in this link.

Today’s video comes from Paris and from the most famous sight in there – the Eiffel Tower. I shot this video to remember and to show what it’s like to travel up there to the top of the Eiffel Tower. And then again coming back down on the ground. You know the elevator inside the Eiffel Tower does not take you quite to the top. This means you have to walk the last stairs all by yourself.
But it’s really worth all the cost and the trouble going up to the Eiffel Tower. With the trouble I mean queueing during a hot day and travelling high up in a small elevator. Travelling together in a small place with all them unknown people whose language you don’t even know to speak. Watching the ground beneath you reciding knowing there is no turning back. But the view from there, from the top of the Eiffel Tower, is really something. Spectacular, unforgettable and worth all the cost and trouble, like I said. And then again, in the night time, when you are walking the Parisian streets in the centre, the view of the lights in the Eiffel Tower really bring about something indescribable for a tourist.
You might also be interested in the article I wrote in Finnish about the Best sights in Paris. It is telling about the best hotels, restaurants and Indian restaurants in Paris also, back in 2017. The interesting point to be made was that an Indian restaurant in Paris, for which Indivue would give five stars for the taste, was only at 12159th position in TripAdvisor. – Makes you wonder how good food there might be in the first 100 restaurants in Paris. Maybe this is the reason why they had to invent them Michelin stars. See also the video of the Best sights in Paris.
But back to this video – After watching it, this short video about the trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower and back on the ground, you will get to see more YouTube videos about the Eiffel Tower and things related.
