So we’re heading over to Europe in May this year, which is super exciting. It’s been 5 years since I was there last - Jim is super excited to put his new-to-him Kiev camera through its paces and I’m super excited to just absorb…EVERYTHING. I’m Polish, so stops in Krakow as well as to visit family in Gdansk and Poznan are on the list, but we’ve also managed to squeeze Berlin in there (obvs), and Helsinki. Helsinki! Home of Marimekko! And Hel Looks! Flea markets! And…saunas!
It just so happens we’ve chosen a good year to visit Helsinki - it is the 2012 World Design Capital. There is a giant design district one can tour as well as a roster of international and Helsinki-based events. I’m looking forward to it, and lookie here, Marimekko has created a map of their designer’s favourite places. Worth the look…and the plane ticket!
