Part Two :
Haukilahti is a small coastal town located in Espoo, west of Helsinki. It has an attractive marina , yacht club and some inviting cafe/bars. It’s not very far from where I’m staying and I came here this evening with Suvi from Destination: Everywhere, a Finnish blogger who I’ve been in contact with through my posts and who I’d been looking forward to meeting for some time.
Looking at the menu, we both settled on Goat’s Cheese Salad as it was such a warm evening. The dish arrived beautifully presented and tasted delicious and from the terrace we were in a good position to watch families relaxing on the beach and enjoying a late evening dip in the sea – on such a lovely evening it’s the perfect place to be!
In the above photo you can see us both enjoying our evening together (it’s me on the right). This is my second ‘Bloggers meet up’ and, although I’d never considered the possibility before Susan from Finding NYC kindly invited me to meet her whilst I was in New York City back in January I was keen to do a ‘meet up’ a second time around as meeting Susan had been so successful and so much fun!
From a bitterly cold winter’s evening in New York City to a Finnish heatwave, it was quite a contrast weather wise , but the welcome on both occasions was warm and friendly and I had a splendid time. Thank you Suvi !
I do hope we get an opportunity to meet again in either the UK or Finland but until we do I’ll enjoy reading her posts and if you would like to do so as well, you can pop over to Suvi’s blog.
