In June 2012, I left for a grand journey to explore Scandinavia: 5 countries, 8 cities, and a countless numbers of boat rides and road trips. I ate strange foods, hiked mountains and glaciers, and met up with friends old and new. This post is from part of that trip.
Helsinki had three imposing churches with impressive architecture, but photographically it was disappointing. In part because I didn’t have a lot of time in the city to really observe the locals, and in part because I felt Finland was too similar to Sweden and Norway. Photographing my way around the globe has allowed me to learn about the type of traveler I am. This trip has taught me that I am more about culture and street photography than nature and architecture. But I digress.
This has been a fun trip for so many reasons, and I will have to do a proper round-up of everything once I’m back to “the true north strong and free”. Until then, goodbye scenic Scandinavia. And happy travels to all of you!
