Sahakari Spice Farm in South Goa (video)

Elephant_shower_in_Sahakari_Spice_Farm_in_Goa_India

The charm of Goa is very much based on its beautiful nature.

Unfortunately roaming around in Indian forests is not safe for a blogging photographer, but luckily they have developed a solution in India for that, which is those tourist friendly spice plantations. In Goa there are several spice plantations, and I went to visit Sahakari Spice Farm in South Goa four years back –

Sahakari Spice Farm is located in Ponda in South of Goa, far from the traditional Goan tourist attractions. You can get there the best and safest by an A/C-taxi, although it is a very expensive way to travel in Goa.

In Sahakari Spice Farm you can see growing, among others, green nature, flowers, pineapples, cashew nuts, pepper corns and other spices , coconuts and bananas in a tree – you can see those in this video attached as well. Bananas and pineapples growing are indeed a very exotic thing to see for a North European traveler, believe it or not. In addition you might also get to see an elephant and buy organic spices for yourself!

If you are wondering what on earth they are pouring with a ladle to a small childs neck in this video, I must reveal that it is water, which cools you nicely when it runs down your back, as the weather in Goa is otherwise tropically sweaty and hot even in February.

Coconut palms do grow everywhere in Goa, but in spice plantation you can see them without hotels and houses.

Elephants are another luxury you don’t get to see every time you visit India.

Here in this video you can see an elephant taking a do-it-yourself-shower in Sahakari Spice Farm!

 

The roads in Sahakari Spice farm were well maintained in 2014. They had even made good stairs in the jungle!

Amos Rex art museum opened in Helsinki

New art museum, Amos Rex, opened in Helsinki this week, on 30.8.2018. The museum is located under ground in and in the inner yard of Lasipalatsi-building right in the centre of Helsinki.

Inside the museum the architecture combines 60’s design with futuristic vibes nicely, and allthough it is an underground museum, the museum windows come on the ground in the inner yard of Lasipalatsi.

The first exhibition in Amos Rex is called Massless by teamLab, and it is really a good example of where the digital art has reached today. Definitely worth seeing.

 

 

Check the INDIVUE video from the opening day 30.8.2018 and see more pics about the Amos Rex -museum together with the teamLab’s art exhibition.

Nowadays the inner yard of Lasipalatsi makes a very nice background for the photos of tourists visiting Helsinki.

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.

Bird photography in Seurasaari island, Helsinki, Finland

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.
