Each Monday, I post a mystery photo, or occasionally a mystery object. I invite you to leave a comment if you think you know the location of this week’s photograph. If you guess the correct location, I will link back to your blog when the answer is revealed the following Monday.*
*Please note that I will release comments in the latter part of each week, usually Thursday or Friday and in this way, everyone can have a guess without a spoiler being revealed.
Last week, MMP visited beautiful Helsinki, Finland, with ‘Snow’ from the blog, SnowMeltsSomewhere. [photo now deleted but photo from same area seen below]
Thanks so much for your kind submission, Snow. It was great fun reading the various guesses. Gerard from Oosterman Treats Blog and Pooja from Stories from Europe guessed correctly with Millie from MillieThom also managing a good guess! And no they didn’t use Google – Good work, everyone!
The Helsinki Archipelago has 315 islands in close proximity to the city centre. Last year, I took a delightful lunchtime cruise around this very archipelago and I highly recommend it; you can read more about my impressions of Helsinki here. However, I shall let Snow tell you a little more about this location!
“This picture [now deleted but photo of same area posted above- ed] is taken near the Kaivopuisto park in Helsinki. It’s located by the sea right in the center of town and it is a definite must-visit if you come to Helsinki. Locals have picnics, go to cafes or ice cream kiosks, and jog in the park – it’s very lively in the summer.” – SnowMeltsSomewhere
Fun Fact: Finland is the world leader in the use of coffee. According to official statistics, more than 11 kg of coffee a year are drunk per capita!
