First Time in Finland | 48 Hours in Helsinki

We have arrived in Finland for the very first time and we are so excited to kick start our winter Christmas European getaway with 48 hours right here in Helsinki!

Day 1 of Jess epic European Christmas she has dreamt of as a kid begins with hot chocolates, roasting sausages by the fire in a red traditional hut.
Cafe: Cafe Regatta Helsinki

Next up we needed to try a Finnish tradition - their Finnish spa experience of getting warmed up in a sauna and then jumping into icy cold water (don't ask me why they do it!)
Spa: Loyly Helsinki

We then attempted to find some Christmas markets (we were a tad early) so we resorted to some hot Glögi before calling it a night.

The next day we went to market square to try some warm creamy salmon soup, headed to Christmas street -
