Olavinlinna castle on a rainy day

Olavinlinna, Finland

After a road trip from Helsinki, we are finally here – and it is POURING. We arrived yesterday and it was raining as well, today even…

El Toston - lighthouse

We spent about half a day in El Cotillo region while we were in Fuerteventura and it sure is one of the ‘Top 10’ places to visit here. The main thing – absolutely lovely white sand beach with lagoons and also a lighthouse. We went straight to El Cotillo beach upon arrival and took off…

Kippo, Helsinki

I have said it before and will say it again – Kippo has the best sandwiches in Helsinki, and quite possibly Finland! At least in my experience 😉 This kiosk on the top floor of Forum shopping centre in central Helsinki has been our go-to food place and sure is for many others too. Kippo…

Linnanmäki, Helsinki

In the month of May, we would usually head over to Linnanmäki – the amusement park of Helsinki. It has been one of my favourite hangouts in the city and we go there about a couple of times a year – often during the spring opening carnival or the autumn lights carnival (The Carnival of…

Volcanes de Bayuyo

Geologically, Fuerteventura is the oldest of the Canary Islands and most of it is said to have formed as a result of volcanic eruptions 5 million years ago. We did a hike up what remains of this volcano on a clear sunny day in the spring of 2020. It was a decent hike, easy for…

Fuerteventura - Dine outs

Flights & Airports Airports are not the most vegan-friendly places that exist but this is changing slowly, too. After a smooth check-in at Helsinki Airport, we stopped by Uppercrust at T2, near the departure gates. They offer speciality coffees with plant-based milk options. I ordered a cappuccino with oatmilk to go, in my reusable bamboo…

Groceries

In Fuerteventura, we stayed in apartments with a kitchen, which is always convenient – cook your own meals and avoid eating out too much. Saves you a lot of money. During a 10-day period we visited a supermarket on two occasions to buy groceries. Boring details but if someone would like to know – here’s…

Risso's dolphin

Thinking about Fuerteventura now, this is what I cherish the most – because it was absolutely amazing and the one thing I had really looked forward to – seeing dolphins and whales in their natural environment. See dolphins we did. The whales were a bit more elusive. We didn’t book any tour before the trip…

The Animal Academy

Before we left, we had the chance to visit what is probably the only farm animals sanctuary in Fuerteventura, The Animal Academy. I heard about them at Delicias y Namàstè, a restaurant where we enjoyed lunch the day we arrived at Fuerteventura. So I got in touch and arranged for a visit. On the day…
