Europe Workshop Tour- Part 4 – Sightseeing in Helsinki, Finland

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in The Traveling Artist

Finland_01

From Germany I made my way to Helsinki, Finland – arriving at around the same time as my friend Birgit Koopsen in the evening. Minna picked us up – yeahhh!

Finland_02

I was sick when I arrived in Helsinki- hence Birgit covering her nose and I am looking like a bed sheet. Not fun to be sick while traveling, but you know what …I still had a great time :) We went out to a fabulous dinner with Minna and Elina eating ….Reindeer Tartar and other finish specialties . And please calm down- it wasn’t Rudolf – and yes …we Europeans eat raw meat …and we survive – – OK?

Finland_03

Birgit and I had half a day on Friday morning to do some sightseeing and started off with some yummy breakfast. Always good to spend time with friends that are as appreciative of food as you :) Plus it was fun to catch up with my wonderful friend and we had just a relaxed and good time.

We went to the harbor

and to the old market at the harbor with cute wooden stalls selling …yep reindeer pate, bear sausages and other interesting stuff- which due to the lack of language skills was not identifiable …mhhh maybe it was better that way- hahahaha.

We strolled around and did some shopping at an artist store and then sat a little bit on the stairs of the Helsinki Cathedral. It was actually the nicest day we had in Finland – it wasn’t really T-Shirt weather- besides for the hardy Fins – but it was nice to get some sun rays onto my sniffy nose.

Then invisible strings pulled us to Fazer – a chocolate institution of Finland – to eat a rich and yummy and of course super healthy chocolate cake 😉

Finland_08

And then we went back through the Unicorn Neighborhood – come one- that is so cool! – to the hotel and waited for Minna to start our journey to Turku where the workshops took place.

Next up will be the Workshops in Finland :)

    Gorgeous rainbow. That chocolate cake looks great and the stalls remind me of the ones in Boston at Fanieul Hall.

Europe Workshop Tour- Part 3 – Short Stop in Germany

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in The Traveling Artist

Germany_01

After Art Mesa in Madrid, Spain I flew to Hamburg, Germany for 3 days of Fun, Friends and Food. It was quite crazy with every two hours a different place and friend to visit. That was the good thing – the bad was, that the summer was basically missing. I don’t think I saw the sun in the time there -and I had to buy a warm rain jacket – and shoes (ohhhh to bad – LOL)

Germany_02

Staying in my old hood always makes me happy. For some it is a nightmare for me it is “home”

Germany_03

Fun sign – I liked it

Germany_04

Best subway ride going up alongside the harbor

Germany_05

The Elb Philharmony – also seen from the subway

Germany_06

short fly by at city hall

Germany_07

and my favorite office supply store Büromarkt Hansen – family owned – which also carries all those yummy Liquitex Spray Paints !

Germany_08

Did I say food? Oh and of course a little beer – yep – we are in Germany after all.

A walk at the harbor after dinner with a friend

And good old Bismarck crowned with a capricorn. A nice art action to criticize the way some antiquated and right groups in Germany use Bismarck and his Monuments for a weird personality cult.

Germany_09

Fun decoration piece at one of my friends house.

And that was it from Germany – next up is my trip to Finnland 😉
