Hi there! My name is Elena. Born and raised in Kazakhstan, I moved around quite a lot. I used to live in Russia, then in the United States, and later on I moved to Finland with Markku, my significant other, who happened to be a Finn.
We live in a beautiful Ullanlinna district in downtown Helsinki. I fell in love with the city (and with the country) and got so inspired that I decided to start this blog. My friends live all around the world, and I find that blogging is a great way to keep connected. Also, it’s a chance to get to know new people too 🙂
I write here about Helsinki and my life in Finland: places to go, things to see, Finnish food, culture, language, and lots more. Welcome to my blog! 🙂
