Helsinki harbor and sea

This was may daily view, when I traveled from Otaniami to Helsinki city (passing Lauttasaari). The bus route passes several smaller islands and gives a nice view across the sea bay.

Otaniemi Area

Särkänniemi Adventure Park

What do you expect in a finnish adventure park? Roller coasters? Dolphin show? Maybe. And you get that here as well. But the main attractions is (of course!) the Angry Birds Land.

Thanks for the invitation :)
