This spring I was lucky enough to visit Helsinki for the best part of a month. Helsinki is a beautiful city with lovely people who thankfully speak English really well – my Finnish is abysmal! There are endless beautiful buildings with a very strong art nouveau influence. Finland is the home of Angry Birds and (for those who remember them) the Moomins. I saw an excellent exhibition in the National Gallery of Tove Jansson which celebrated 100 years since her birth.
