A Food and Culture Post from Lapland

Helsinki- A Few Stolen Moments!

Helsinki was more of a stopover on my Lapland trip with Nokia. When I arrived, it was 12.00 midnight. All I did was to take a taxi and crash at the Airport Holiday Inn. Now what would I give to take a taxi without any fear at midnight in Delhi but then I wonder if … Read more

When I Stayed in the Levi Spirit Villa!

My personal traveling style certainly does not include staying in villas! I do not earn enough, and even if I do, I cannot spend it on villas. I want to travel every 15 days, I certainly do not earn enough to stay every 15 days in a posh accommodation. How I wish I could take … Read more

A Glimpse of Helsinki through Clouds

Lazy Sunday Photo- Colors at Iittala Store, Helsinki

Glasses, tumblers, plates etc. bore me to death. But as I was walking along with others on the #lumiainlapland trip I had no option. They wanted to go to the Iittala Store in Helsinki, I had to go in as well. There was something about this place though that I almost ended up buying stuff. … Read more

Hear Us Scream

I did some crazy things in Lapland (Finland) this time. At Levi where we stayed the temperature was always in minus, from -22 to -1! So, the Finns enjoy sitting in a sauna because it is cold and they took us there too. But for some crazy reason they like taking a dip in ice … Read more
