Board walks in Torronsuo

We had a lovely day out yesterday: we drove about 1,5 hrs north west from Helsinki to Torronsuo, a swamp a little south of Forssa. There they have built lovely board walks around and across the swamp, which are fun to walk on even for kids. There is also 200 metres of board walk to […]

Winter Holidays at Home

We decided to stay this holiday week home to enjoy Helsinki, outdoors, family and not too much programme. Unfortunately there is no snow but there are other options: Iceskating; always fun and a great way to catch up with friends. There are free time spots in the ice halls (Google Helsinki jäähallit yleisöluistelu) and it […]

Trampolines at Tempputemmellys

Christy visited with her kids a while ago a trampoline park in Singapore. I was thinking that it is a shame there is nothing such here. But there is! Tempputemmellys is a fair sized trampoline park one in Espoonlahti, Espoo. It is not free but I think the prices (8-12e/depending on the time and age) […]
